Infotech Oulu Doctoral Program Seventh International Crisis Management Workshop (CrIM'13) and Oulu Winter School Seventh International Crisis Management Workshop (CrIM'13) and Oulu Winter School to be held at the University of Oulu (Finland) from November 25th to November 26th 2013 Trends in cyber security after Snowden: Is cyber security still relevant? Recent leaks of governmental monitoring practices in cyberspace have left anybody, citizens and security professionals/researchers, questioning current computing trends – particularly its security mechanisms. Citizens are concerned about their digital lifestyle, with personal data stored in the ever growing ecosystem of cloud and mobile services and are starting to weight the obvious advantages of ubiquity and accessibility against the threat of constant surveillance. Governments, on the other hand, are worried about terrorists and whistle-blowers and that despite an unproportional effort for securing computer networks, confidential documents keep leaking to the public. Organisation and format of the workshop At CrIM'13, we are proud to present lectures covering a broad variety of topics related to the theme of the workshop. The workshop is organized as a two day lecture series on November 25th and November 26th 2013. Students, as well as the interested public, are invited to attend these lectures. Please register to the workshop via e-mail to email@example.com – Subject: “CrIM registration”. Students can receive study credits by taking an examination after the workshop. Registration for the examination is required before the workshop to firstname.lastname@example.org – Subject: “CrIM exam registration”. Location and additional information The workshop takes place at the University of Oulu, campus Linnanmaa in lecture room L10 (close to campus entrance R). A campus map as well as additional information can be found at the webpage of the workshop: https://www.ee.oulu.fi/research/ouspg/CrIM13 Program Monday, November 25th 2013: 08:30-09:00: Juha Röning - Opening session 09:00-10:15: Soktrates Katsikas - Cybersecurity: Emerging threats, new challenges 10:15-10:45: Coffee break 10:45-12:00: Greg Soukiassian - Are your data safe and operations resilient in the clouds? 12:00-13:00: Lunch break 13:00-14:15: Tiago Cruz - Introduction to the CockpitCI project 14:15-14:45: Coffee break 14:45-16:00: Filipe Caldeira - Trust and Reputation for Critical Infrastructure Protection 16:00-17:15: Kari Jussila - Trade-off between Privacy and Security Tuesday, November 26th 2013: 09:00-10:15: Juhani Anttila - Pitfalls in the management system standardization for information security 10:15-10:45: Coffee break 10:45-12:00: Simona Samardjiska - McEliece in the world of Escher 12:00-13:00: Lunch break 13:00-14:15: Christos Xenakis - Compromising users' privacy from stolen/lost mobile devices: the Android case 14:15-14:45: Coffee break 14:45-16:00: Antti Evesti - Case report on the NSA PRISM program 16:00-17:15: Gerald Quirchmayr - A Privacy Perspective on Social Media Analysis 17:15: Juha Röning - Closing session

Infotech Oulu Doctoral Program Thin Film Solar Cells Lecturer: Professor Arthur Hill, Faculty of Science Engineering and Environment, University of Salford, Salford, UK Date: Wednesday, April 10, 2013 – Friday April 12, 2013Time: 14.00-17.00 Room: TS3110 Course description (3x3 hours lectures) The course gives a general introduction to the subject of photovoltaic cells with emphasis on thin film cells. Different cell structures and materials are compared. The advantages of thin chalcopyrite cells such as copper indium/gallium diselenide (CIGS) cells are discussed with reference to their efficiency, light absorption and ability to withstand radiation. The crystalline properties and relevant methods of deposition are described with emphasis on pulsed DC magnetron sputtered films. Interest in kesterite-based cells is prompted by the world shortage of indium and gallium. Lecture contents Lecture 1. Photovoltaic Materials and Solar Cells. Energy and sunlight. Types of solar cell. CIS and CIGS. Material properties of CIS – crystal structure, density, optical absorption, radiation hardness. CIS cell performance in space. The stoichiometry triangle. Electrical conductivity related to defect structure. The CIS phase diagram. Solar cell characteristics. Lecture 2. Cell Structure and Deposition Methods Basic thin film cell structure – back contact, absorber and window layers. Deposition of CIS/CIGS thin films by co-evaporation or sputtering. Fabrication of CIS starting materials for single crystal growth or sputtering. Magnetron sputtering basics. Pulsed DC magnetron sputtering (PDMS). Lecture 3. Film Characteristics, Commercial Arrays and Future Materials Analysis of PDMS deposited films for solar cell fabrication - CIS, CIGS, Mo, In2S3, and In2O3. Potential limitations on CIS/CIGS devices caused by shortage of indium and gallium. Kesterites such as CZTS as alternatives to chalcopyrite thin film solar cell materials. Commercially available thin film solar panels. Capital cost and energy pay-back times. Conclusions.
