Keynote 1: Data, Data, Data: The Core of
Peter Chen, Ph.D.
Fellow of IEEE, ACM & AAAS
Professor, Louisiana State University (LSU) & Carnegie-Mellon
Opening Session, 7/5/2011,
Peter P. Chen is Distinguished Chair Professor of Computer
Science at Louisiana State University and Visiting Professor at
Carnegie-Mellon University. He is also Honorary Distinguished Chair
Professor of Service Sciences, National Tsing Hua University, Taiwan.
He received his Ph.D. from Harvard and has taught at MIT (EECS dept.,
Management School, and Engineering System Division), UCLA (Management
School), and Harvard (Computer Science).
He is internationally known for his development of the
Entity-Relationship (ER) Model, the foundation of many data modeling
and systems analysis methodologies, computer-aided software engineering
(CASE) tools, and repository systems. In the late 80’s, the ER
model was adopted as the meta-model for ANSI standards on Information
Resource Dictionary Systems (IRDS). In the 90’s,
IBM’s Application Development Cycle (AD/Cycle) framework and DB2
repository (RM/MVS) were based on the ER model. Today, many CASE
tools (such as Computer Associates’ ERWIN, Oracle’s
Designer, Sybase’s PowerDesigner, and Microsoft’s general
drawing tool, Visio) support the ER model. Also,
Microsoft’s ADO.NET’s Entity Framework provides software
developers the programming and execution facilities for the ER model.
His original ER model paper is one of the most cited papers in IT/IS
and was selected as one of 38 papers in the book, Great papers in
Computer Science (West Publishing, 1996). The ER model has also
influenced the recent developments of the Object-Oriented (OO) analysis
and design methodologies, Semantic Web, and UML.
Dr. Chen is a Fellow of IEEE, ACM, AAAS, and a member of European
Academy of Sciences. He received many awards including ACM/AAAI
Allen Newell Award, IEEE Harry Goode Award, Stevens Software Method
Award, Data Mgmt Admin. Assoc. Achievement Award, Data Mgmt Hall of
Fame, Software Eng. Society Transformative Award, and Pan Wen-Yuan
Outstanding Research Award. He was recognized as one of the 16
software pioneers in the book entitled Software Pioneers (Springer,
2002). Besides data modeling and software engineering, he has
made contributions in system architecture, cyber security, terrorist
detection, data mining, and modeling/simulation.
Dr. Chen has served as consultant or advisor to many corporations and
government agencies. He has served as an Invited Expert in the
XML Schema and XLink working groups of the World Wide Web Consortium
(W3C). He has also served as a member of the Advisory
Committee of NSF CISE and the Air Force Scientific Advisory
Board. He is listed in Who’s Who in America and Who’s
Who in the World.

Fellow of ACM, IEEE & AAAS
Vice President, Microsoft
8:00-9:30am, 7/7/2011, Thursday
Reed is Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President for
and Policy and Extreme Computing. Previously, he was the
Eminent Professor at UNC Chapel Hill, as well as the Director of
Renaissance Computing Institute (RENCI) and the Chancellor’s
Senior Advisor for Strategy and Innovation for UNC Chapel Hill.
Dr. Reed has served as a member of the U.S. President’s Council
Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) and as a member of the
President’s Information Technology Advisory Committee
(PITAC). As chair
of PITAC’s computational science subcommittee, he was
lead author of
the report “Computational Science: Ensuring America’s
On PCAST, he co-chaired the Networking and Information Technology
subcommittee (with George Scalise of the Semiconductor Industry
Association) and co-authored a report on the National Coordination
Office’s Networking and Information Technology Research and
Development (NITRD) program called “Leadership Under
Technology R&D in Competitive World.”
In June 2009, he completed two terms of service as chair of the board
of directors of the Computing Research Association, which
the research interests of Ph.D. granting university departments,
industrial research groups and national laboratories.
He was previously Head of the Department of Computer Science at the
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), where the held
Edward William and Jane Marr Gutgsell Professorship. He has also
Director of the National Center for Supercomputing Applications
at UIUC, where he also led National Computational
Science Alliance, a
fifty institution partnership devoted to creating the next generation
of computational science tools. He was also one of the principal
investigators and chief architect for the NSF TeraGrid. He
B.S. from Missouri University of Science and Technology and his
and Ph.D. in computer science in 1983 from Purdue University.
He is a Fellow of the ACM, the IEEE and the AAAS.
