- ITU Symposium and Workshop on small satellite regulation and communication systems Prague 2-4.3.2015
- ITU Symposium and Workshop on small satellite regulation and communication systems, Prague, Czech Republic, 2-4 March 2015
Resolution 757 (WRC-12) on “Regulatory aspects for nanosatellites and picosatellites”, requests the ITU-R to examine the procedures for notifying space networks and consider possible modifications to enable the deployment and operation of nanosatellites and picosatellites, taking into account the short development time, short mission time and unique orbital characteristics. The same resolution instructs the Director of the Bureau to report to WRC-15 on the results of these studies.
In this regard, the ITU Radiocommunication Bureau, in kind cooperation with the ITU-R Academia member Czech Technical University, Faculty of Electrical Engineering (CVUT FEL), is pleased to announce a three-day Symposium and workshop on “Small satellite regulation and communication systems” in Prague, Czech Republic, on 2-4 March 2015.
The Prague Symposium and workshop will provide a unique opportunity to meet and share views with the world´s leading experts from administrations, ITU-R sector members, academia, research institutes, satellite operators, industry and launchers who will provide the latest information on their plans, experience and case studies for the development of small satellite networks and distributed earth station networks.
The Symposium participants will learn also about the recent development of ITU-R WP7B studies - Question SG07.254 related to characteristics and spectrum requirements of satellite systems using nano and pico satellites. In addition, the Symposium will permit informal discussions on the need, if any, to modify the regulatory procedures for notifying satellite networks in order to facilitate the deployment and operation of nanosatellites and picosatellites.
On the last day, a specific workshop will be organized to familiarize participants with searching and querying the ITU Space Master International Register (MIFR), Space Networks List (SNL) on-line and Space Networks System (SNS) on-line, use of ITU software for submission and validation of small satellite network filings to ITU, submission of comments on ITU publications published on the BR International Frequency Information Circular (Space Services) (BR IFIC) and rights and obligations in a case of harmful interference to satellite networks recorded in the MIFR.

- Film Club - Boyhood
- Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's Yellow to Arcade Fire's Deep Blue. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting.
- PIS - prof. Václav Matyáš - Secrecy amplification in partially compromised networks
- LECTURE ANNOTATION
Distribution of cryptographic keys is a cornerstone to most ICT security solutions. Usage of various key (pre)distribution schemes in networks with an active attacker results in a partially compromised network where some fraction of keys used to protect link communication is known to the attacker. The secrecy amplification protocols were proposed to secure again some previously compromised communication links by using non-compromised paths to deliver new secure keys. Design of suitable secrecy amplification protocols remains a challenge in scenarios where a trade-off between necessary resources (e.g., energy necessary for transmission of message) and improvement in the number of secure links must be balanced.
This talk will inspect most promising classes of secrecy amplification protocols. We combine analysis of given protocol participant placement via a simulator and manual post-processing to provide a simpler, practically usable hybrid protocol with less steps and lower communication overhead, yet still better in terms of re-secured links than previously proposed protocols. The talk is based on results published as: A New Approach to Secrecy Amplification in Partially Compromised Networks. R Ošťádal, P Švenda, V Matyáš. Security, Privacy, and Applied Cryptography Engineering (SPACE) 2014. Springer LNCS 8804, pp. 92-109.
Prof. RNDr. Václav Matyáš, M.Sc., Ph.D.
Václav (Vashek) Matyáš is a Professor at the Masaryk University, Brno, CZ, and Vice-Dean for Foreign Affairs and External Relations, Faculty of Informatics. His research interests relate to applied cryptography and security, where he published over 150 peer-reviewed papers and articles, and co-authored several books. He was a Fulbright-Masaryk Visiting Scholar with Harvard University, Center for Research on Computation and Society in 2011-12, and previously he worked also with Microsoft Research Cambridge, University College Dublin, Ubilab at UBS AG, and was a Royal Society Postdoctoral Fellow with the Cambridge University Computer Lab. Vashek edited the Computer and Communications Security Reviews, and worked on the development of Common Criteria and with ISO/IEC JTC1 SC27.
ABOUT THE PRAGUE COMPUTER SCIENCE SEMINAR
The seminar will take place on the 4th Thursday of each month at 4:00pm (except June, July, August and December) alternately in the buildings of Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Czech Technical University, Karlovo nám. 13, Praha 2 and Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, Charles University, Malostranské nám. 25, Praha 1.
Its program will consist of a one-hour lecture followed by a discussion. The lecture should be based on an (internationally) exceptional or remarkable achievement of the lecturer, presented in a way which is comprehensible and interesting to a broad computer science community. The lectures will be in English.
The seminar framework was laid out by the preparatory committee consisting of Michal Chytil (Czech Academy of Sciences, Computer Science Institute), Pavel Kordík (Czech Tech. Univ., Faculty of Information Technologies), Jan Kybic (Czech Tech. Univ., Faculty of Electrical Engineering), Michal Pěchouček Czech Tech. Univ., Faculty of Electrical Engineering), Jiří Sgall (Charles University, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics), Vojtěch Svátek (University of Economics, Faculty of Informatics and Statistics), Michal Šorel (Czech Academy of Sciences,Institute of Information Theory and Automation), and Filip Železný (Czech Tech. Univ., Faculty of Electrical Engineering)
The idea to organize this seminar emerged in discussions of the representatives of several research institutes on how to avoid the undesired fragmentation of the Czech computer science community.
