He is also the President of Chinese Cryptology and Information Security Association (CCISA), which is the largest academic association of its kind in Taiwan. He was on the organizing committees of numerous conferences, such as International Computer Symposium, and IEEE International conference on Parallel and Distributed Systems. Recently, he is the steering committee chair of ACM Symposium on Information, Computer and Communications Security, program chair of 2006 ACM ASIACCS, general chair of 1998 Network Security Technology Workshop, the program chair of 1999 Conference on Mobile Computing, the program chair of 2002 International Workshop on Asia Public Key Infrastructure, the program chair of 1997 Information Security Conference (INFOSEC'97) and the program committee member of 1996 and 2000 ACM Conference on Computer and Communications Security. Dr. Shieh has published over a hundred of academic articles, including papers, patents, and books. Recently he received ACM Service Award for his contribution to ACM; Outstanding Research Award, NationalChiaoTungUniversity, 2000; Distinguished Information Technology Award, 2000 bestowed by Executive Yuan for his academic achievement in computer security research.

His research interests include internetworking, distributed operating systems, and network security.

S. (Shyhtsun) Felix Wu

  S. (Shyhtsun) Felix Wu is a professor of the Computer Security group at UCDavis. In research, he is interested in security issues related to both networking and networked systems. Currently, he has been working on the following research areas: Unknown vulnerability analysis, IPSec/VPN Policy Management, Routing protocol security, Internet architecture, Mobility, Secure computer architecture, Email Antispam, Information Visualization for Security, Anomaly Analysis and Explanation. Very soon, he realized that he was probably interested in too many things though. Therefore, his latest focus has been on the DSL (Davis Social Links) project.
  Tsuyoshi Takagi

Tsuyoshi Takagi received the B.Sc. and M.Sc. degrees in mathematics from Nagoya University in 1993 and 1995, respectively. He had engaged in the research on network security at NTT Laboratories from 1995 to 2001. He received the Dr.rer.nat. degree from Technical University of Darmstadt in 2001. He was a Junior Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Technical University of Darmstadt until 2005. He is currently a Professor in the School of Systems Information Science at Future University Hakodate. His current research interests are information security and cryptography. Dr. Takagi is a member of the International Association for Cryptologic Research (IACR).

  Bo-Yin Yang

Born February 14, 1969 in Princeton, New Jersey, B.-Y. Yang was mostly educated in Taiwan, graduating from National Taiwan University with a BS in Physics in 1987. Later he finished graduate work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology with a PhD in mathematics in 1991. He then returned to Taiwan and taught at Tamkang University. In 2002, he started working in cryptography and in 2006 moved to the Academia Sinica.

His specialties are algebraic cryptanalysis and multivariate public-key cryptography, a kind of post-quantum cryptosystem (a cryptosystem that will not be much affected by the existence of large-scale quantum computers).

He is married and enjoys board games, hiking and reading in his spare time.
