In this 20-year retrospective, we discuss some of the challenges of dealing with distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks from its origins in 1999 to the recent attacks in the late 2010s. We describe first architectures of DDoS agents, the challenges of DDoS agent/bot forensics, the variety of topologies and command-and-control mechanisms for botnets over the years, the different victim populations from scientific workstations to IoT devices, future and current Internet design considerations, as well as attack and defense mechanisms at the host and network levels.

Founded in 2010, NYC Media Lab is dedicated to driving innovation and ultimately job growth in media and technology by facilitating collaboration between the City’s universities and its companies. Comprised of a consortium including New York City Economic Development Corporation, New York University, Columbia University, The New School, CUNY, and Pratt Institute, NYC Media Lab’s goals include generating research and development, knowledge transfer, and talent development across all of the City’s campuses. Justin will describe NYC Media Lab, its projects, and the curiosities of its member companies.
Justin Hendrix connects companies seeking to advance digital media technologies with university capabilities in order to drive collaborative innovation. Before joining NYC Media Lab, Hendrix was Vice President, Business Development & Innovation for The Economist Group in the Americas, where he directed the Group’s innovation process, including prototyping, testing, and commercializing new digital media business concepts. Prior to this role, Hendrix directed brand marketing and communications and ran The Economist’s thought leadership events business in the Americas. He is a regular writer and speaker on media & innovation. Hendrix holds a Bachelor of Arts from the College of William & Mary and a Master of Science in Technology Commercialization from the McCombs School of Business, University of Texas at Austin. He lives in Brooklyn.

Most tools that scientists use for the preparation of scholarly manuscripts, such as Microsoft Word and LaTeX, function offline and do not account for the born-digital nature of research objects. Also, most authoring tools in use today are not designed for collaboration, and, as scientific collaborations grow in size, research transparency and the attribution of scholarly credit are at stake. In this talk, I will show how the Authorea platform allows scientists to collaboratively write rich data-driven manuscripts on the web–articles that would natively offer readers a dynamic, interactive experience with an article’s full text, images, data, and code–paving the road to increased data sharing, data reuse, research reproducibility, and Open Science.
Alberto Pepe is the co-founder of Authorea. He recently finished a Postdoctorate in Astrophysics at Harvard University. During his postdoctorate, Alberto was also a fellow of the Berkman Center for Internet and Society and the Institute for Quantitative Social Science. Alberto is the author of 30 publications in the fields of Information Science, Data Science, Computational Social Science, and Astrophysics. He obtained his Ph.D. in Information Science from the University of California, Los Angeles with a dissertation on scientific collaboration networks which was awarded with the Best Dissertation Award by the American Society for Information Science and Technology (ASIS&T). Prior to starting his Ph.D., Alberto worked in the Information Technology Department of CERN, in Geneva, Switzerland, where he worked on data repository software and also promoted Open Access among particle physicists. Alberto holds a M.Sc. in Computer Science and a B.Sc. in Astrophysics, both from University College London, U.K. Alberto was born and raised in the wine-making town of Manduria, in Puglia, Southern Italy.

In recent years, we have seen an overwhelming number of TV commercials that promise that the Cloud can help with many problems, including some family issues. What stands behind the terms “Cloud” and “Cloud Computing,” and what we can actually expect from this phenomenon? A group of students of the Computer Systems Technology department and Dr. T. Malyuta, whom has been working with the Cloud technologies since its early days, will provide an overview of the business and technological aspects of the Cloud.
|Dr. T. Malyuta
||Cloud: a different business model and a new computing paradigm
|H. Martinez and S. Lin
||The role of virtualization on the Cloud
|K. Mothana and C. Ozoria
||The Google’s Big Table and Cloud data technologies

More and more use is being made of cell phones for web exploration at the expense of conventional desk and laptop PCs. The modern web has to accommodate all these many screen sizes from High definition PC screens through iPads to miniature cell phone and maybe even smaller? This presentation will give many outward examples of valid web sites and discuss internal coding techniques.
Anthony is a Lecturer at the Computer Systems Technology Department of New York City College of Technology, City University of New York. He holds a BSc from King’s College London and an MBA from Regent Street Polytechnic, London, UK.
