Scholarship 2010

April — Choi was invited to the KSEA National Math and Science Competition (NMSC) 2010 as a National Science Competition Committee Member, where he was in charge of creating national science competition questions and coordinating the national competition. NMSC is hosted by KSEA (Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association) annually.

The KSEA NMSC is open to all fourth through eleventh grade students. The goal of the NMSC is to stimulate their interests in mathematics and science as well as promote careers in the fields of science and engineering. More than 2,000 students participated in the math competition and about 800 students took part in the science competition held in 28 different cities throughout the United States.

The NMSC is co-sponsored by the KSEA and the Korea-U.S. Science Cooperation Center (KUSCO) and is managed by the KSEA chapters. The KSEA gives awards in math and students are able to check their individual rankings. Through team-based projects, science competitions foster fun, creative collaboration. National Math Competition Committee and Science Committee members who are professors, researchers, and industry experts in the United States have worked together to prepare materials for these competitions.

March — Choi's recent collaborative research work, "Understanding the Different Aspects of Current Green IT Standards," was accepted to the 2010 Northeast Decision Sciences Institute (NEDSI) Annual Conference at Hilton Alexandria Old Town in Alexandria, Va. His researched with Dr. Tom Oh and his student Rajath S. Chouta, of Rochester Institute of Technology in New York, and Jungwoo Ryoo, a professor at Penn State University.

January — Choi was invited to the YGTLC 2010 (The Sixth Annual Young Generation Technical and Leadership Conference) at Marriott Fairview Park in Falls Church, Va., hosted by KSEA (Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association), KUSCO (Korea-U.S. Science Cooperation Center), and KOFST (The Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies) and sponsored by Samsung Telecom, LG Electronics, SK Energy, Texas Financial, and Dale Carnegie Training. YGTLC is the flagship event for Korean-American young professionals, graduate and undergraduate students.

The program included talks on emerging technologies, speeches from distinguished industry and academic leaders, career development, networking, and leadership programs. The theme of the conference is ‘A Bright Future through Innovation and Leadership.’

Choi also attended The KSEA 38th Administration Mid-Term Council Meeting at Marriott Fairview Park in Falls Church, Va., with YGTLC 2010 concurrently. Choi is currently working as the Technical Group L (Computer Science and Systems Engineering) Councilor of KSEA and has been a member of KSEA since 1988.

Scholarship 2009

December — Choi was invited to present at the KOCSEA (Korean Computer Scientists and Engineers Association in America) Technical Symposium at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where he presented his recent research work on the Next Generation Web.

In this research, Choi explored recent developments on the Web and forecast future development trends of Next Generation Web based on the current technologies and emerging Web technologies developed by international standard organizations and changing requirements of Web users and industry market.

The KOCSEA symposium provided a forum for presenting recent technical advances, exchanging innovative ideas, and fostering collaborations among participants creating new opportunities for collaborative research.

December — Choi's recent collaborative research work was accepted by International Journal of Mobile Communications. His research work was performed with Tom Oh, professor, and Kristan Stokes, student, of Rochester Institute of Technology, and Jungwoo Ryoo, professor at Penn State University. Research work was done completely using the Internet Telephony (VoIP) groupware SKYPE over the Internet and e-mail exchanges.

More research is going on the latest data communications and telecommunications technologies with the collaborators. “Security Management in Wireless Sensor Networks for Healthcare,” with Oh, Stokes and Ryoo. The paper will be published in the International Journal of Mobile Communications in 2010.

November — Choi was invited to the ITU-T (International Telecommunication Union Telecommunication Standardization Sector) Technology Watch Program by the recommendation of Young-Han Choe, of ITU-T, who is in charge of the ITU-T Technology Watch Program.

His Technology Watch Report, “Future Direction for a Next Generation Web,” jointly worked with Choe will be published in early 2010 and disseminated to the ICT people around the world by the ITU-T Technology Watch Program. The Technology Watch Program has been surveying the ICT environment, by identifying new and emerging technologies and assessing their likely impact on future standardization work and on developing countries since October 2007.

November — Choi was invited to the the GASI (Global Awareness Society International) 2010 Conference by the introduction of Chang Shub Roh, founder of GASI. The GASI is a network of scholars, professionals and others dedicated to mutual understanding and peace. The theme of the conference is “Global Development and the Changing Balance of Power in World Affairs” and will be held in Krakow, Poland.

November — Choi was invited by McGraw-Hill to publish the article, “Green Technology in Computing and Telecommunications,” with the recommendation of the consulting editor in Computer Science of Yearbook of Science & Technology 2010, Ramon A. Mata-Toledo, of James Madison University. The book will be published in early 2010. The article will also appear as a "Research Update" in the online science and technology reference, AccessScience.

November — A joint research work, "Reeling In Cognitive Radio: The Issues of Regulations and Policies Affecting Spectrum Management,” with Tom Oh, professor of Rochester Institute of Technology, was accepted for the 3rd International Conference on Future Generation Communication and Networking (FGCN 2009) and 2009 1st International Conference on Advanced Communication and Networking (CAN 2009), International Convention Center Jeju, Jeju Island, Korea.

The research paper will be included in the “International Journal of Future Generation Communication and Networking.”
