        "Last Wednesday evening I arrived in DC to speak at UMD in College Park, MD. This opportunity was made possible by a group of motivated students that make up the Latino Student Union. Not only did they make it possible for students to attend but the public was also welcomed. I spoke mostly of my experiences during the last few years & my efforts of making my own path and building a financial future out of everything I love. I'm super thankful for the time shared with everyone that attended and also the attention they devoted for a little more than two hours. Leave a comment if you want me to come speak at your school!"......Maestro Check the video created by Tarik Sykes below and leave a comment if you want me to come speak at your school!

            R. Srikant University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Abstract Establishing the optimality of routing and scheduling problems in communication networks requires the computation of upper and lower bounds on steady-state queue lengths. It is well known that setting the drift of the Lyapunov function equal to zero in steady-state provides bounds on the expected queue lengths. However, such bounds are often very loose due to the fact that they fail to capture resource pooling effects. We will show that the approach of “setting the drift of a Lyapunov function equal to zero”
can be used to obtain bounds on the steady-state queue lengths which are tight in the heavy-traffic limit. The key is to establish an appropriate notion of state-space collapse in terms of steady-state moments of weighted queue length differences, and use this state-space collapse result when setting the Lyapunov drift equal to zero. We will illustrate the technique by applying it to a routing problem and a scheduling problem. Biography R. Srikant is with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he is the Fredric G. and Elizabeth H. Nearing Endowed Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and a Research Professor in the Coordinated Science Lab. His research interests include communication networks, stochastic processes and queueing theory. He is the author of the book "Mathematics of Internet Congestion Control" and a co-author of the monograph "Network Optimization and Control." He is a Fellow of the IEEE and a Distinguished Lecturer of the IEEE Communications Society for 2011-2012.

            • Model-Based SE using SysML

              Sanford Friedenthal Lockheed Martin Host John Baras Abstract The practice of systems engineering is transitioning from a document-based approach to a model-based approach. In a model-based approach, emphasis is placed on defining, managing, and controlling a coherent model of the system that can then be reflected in systems engineering documentation such as specifications, interface control documentation, system design documentation, trade studies, and analysis reports. This presentation will provide an overview of the benefits of the model-based systems engineering (MBSE) approach over a document-based approach in terms of how it can improve productivity, quality, and enhance communications among the development team. The presentation also highlights how MBSE can be used to flow requirements down from the mission level to the system design and to hardware and software components, and how SysML integrates with other models. Some of the lessons learned from early applications of MBSE using the SysML standard will also be presented. Biography Sanford Friedenthal is a Lockheed Martin Fellow and currently leads an effort to enable Model Based Systems Development (MBSD) and other advanced practices across the company. His experience includes the application of systems engineering throughout the system life-cycle from conceptual design, through development and production on a broad range of systems in aerospace and defense. He has been a systems engineering department manager, and a lead developer of advanced systems engineering processes and methods including the Lockheed Martin Integrated Enterprise Process and the Object-Oriented Systems Engineering Method (OOSEM). Mr. Friedenthal was a leader of the Industry Standards effort through the Object Management Group (OMG) and INCOSE to develop the Systems Modeling Language (OMG SysML) that was adopted by the OMG in 2006. He is co-author of A Practical Guide to SysML.
