His structural engineering research involves the computer program, FB-MultiPier, which analyzes bridge pier, superstructure and pile foundations subjected to dynamic loading. Keynote Topic: University Campus: A Microcosm of the Future Dr. Hoit will present how a university campus is a petri dish for innovation, future trends and disruption for IT and how it affects services, purchasing and planning. 9:30 Tom Limoncelli Time Management Guru, Author, Blogger, and System Administrator Tom is an internationally recognized author, speaker, and system administrator.

Security people are pulled in so many directions it is impressive anything gets done at all. The bad news is that if you work in security then good time management is basically impossible. The good news is that it isnt your fault. Tom will explore many of the causes and will offer solutions based from his book, “Time Management for System Administrators” (Now translated into 5 languages.) 5

Mr. Griffin has eight patents pending in the area of security, and he has been a speaker at leading security conferences and venues around the world. Abstract: For every XML Schema (XSD) there is an analogous ASN.1 schema that can be used to generate compact, efficient binary message formats, and XML markup instance documents that are equivalent to those based on the initial XML schema. These binary formats are appropriate for use in environments constrained by mobility, limited battery life, storage size, or bandwidth (e.g., wireless communications using hand held devices). Using a binary format for XML messages can make secure protocol messages available in environments where verbose formats prohibit application development. 15
