Welcome

The advent of cloud computing brings great changes to the IT industry. In cloud computing, users do not need to have their own expensive computing equipment nor software systems; they can use the services provided by the cloud systems in an on-demand manner for scientific computation, data storage, computer communication, and so on. As millions of users with different business background share the use of the cloud systems, security and privacy becomes a critical issue of these systems.

On a different front, the challenge of security and privacy has become even more prominent following the explosive growth of online social networks in recent years. People, using online social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, etc., are increasingly seriously concerned about the security and privacy of their personal data collected by the service providers. The principal goal of this ASI is to bring the world leading scientists and experts to Hong Kong to share with us their research experiences and the new developments in the area of security and privacy for online social networks and cloud computing.

The 3-day ASI is co-organised by Prof. Xiaohua Jia from City University of Hong Kong and Prof. Kui Ren from the State University of New York, Buffalo. It will take place on the campus of City University of Hong Kong, which is conveniently located at Kowloon Tong area, the centre of Kowloon, Hong Kong.
