This book presents the proceedings of the 11th International Conference on Multimedia and Ubiquitous Engineering (MUE2017) and the 12th International Conference on Future Information Technology (FutureTech2017), held in Seoul, South Korea on May 22-24, 2017.
These two conferences provided an opportunity for academic and industrial professionals to discuss recent advances in the area of multimedia and ubiquitous environments including models and systems, new directions, and novel applications associated with the utilization and acceptance of ubiquitous computing devices and systems. The resulting papers address the latest technological innovations in the fields of digital convergence, multimedia convergence, intelligent applications, embedded systems, mobile and wireless communications, bio-inspired computing, grid and cloud computing, semantic web, user experience, HCI, and security and trust computing.
The book offers a valuable resource for a broad readership, including students, academic researchers, and professionals. Further, it provides an overview of current research and a "snapshot" for those new to the field.

Since completing his Ph.D. in Information Security in February 2006, he have (co)authored a number of publications in the areas of anti-money laundering, cyber and information security, and digital forensics including a book published in Springer's "Advances in Information Security" book series, six Australian Government's Australian Institute of Criminology (AIC) refereed monographs, five refereed book chapters, 34 refereed journal articles, 20 refereed conference articles and six parliamentary submissions. His research has been widely cited, including in key government reports such as the 2010 Australian Government House of Representatives Standing Committee on Communications Report on the Inquiry into Cyber Crime, 2011 Australian Government Joint Select Committee's Report on Cyber-Safety, Working paper for the Twelfth United Nations Congress on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) 2011 "Handbook on Identity-related Crime", 2010 US CRS Report for Congress (Prepared for Members and Committees of Congress) entitled "Organized Crime: An Evolving Challenge for U.S. Law Enforcement", International Telecommunication Union (ITU) 2011 "Understanding Cybercrime: A Guide For Developing Countries" report, and 2012 UNODC "Wildlife and Forest Crime Analytic Toolkit" report. (His Google Scholar h-index is 15 - http://scholar.google.com.au/citations?user=rRBNI6AAAAAJ&hl=en).
His work has been at a strategic level, investigating current and predicted threats to ICT systems with a view to making evidence-based policy-relevant recommendations about protection and prevention. He has demonstrated the capacity to span a broad range of conceptual activities - from understanding technical details to identifying potential high-level threats - and to provide leadership in identifying priorities and opportunities and synthesising key issues and information in written and verbal fashion. He holds an Australian Government security clearance.
He regularly represents his employers to undertake high level consultations with Government and law enforcement agencies, academics and industry peak bodies in Australia and overseas (e.g. USA, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Indonesia, and China). He has demonstrated that He maintains professionalism, integrity, ethical stewardship of resources in these high level consultations; and to collaborate with senior stakeholders in the public sector, private sector, think tanks and academia to cultivate ideas and deliver results. He has been an invited speaker for a number of events in Australia and overseas (e.g. 2011 United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime-International Telecommunication Union (UNODC-ITU) Asia-Pacific Regional Workshop on Fighting Cybercrime and 2011 (Ministerial-level) Korea-Australia-New Zealand (KANZ) Broadband Summit 2011) including delivering Keynote/Plenary Speeches at ECPAT Taiwan's 2008 Conference on Criminal Problems and Intervention Strategy, 2010 International Conference on Applied Linguistics and 2011 Economic Crime Asia Conference, and Invited Lecture at the Bangladesh Institute of International and Strategic Studies. He was also invited to participate in the 2012 Coalition Parliamentarians Online Safety Working Group's roundtable (established to consult with key technology, education and cyber-safety leaders, as well as other interested parties, to further develop its online safety policy in the areas of education, regulation and enforcement), and the 11th IISS Asia Security Summit, the 2012 Shangri-La Dialogue (all expenses paid for).
He has also been interviewed by the Australian media: Australian Government House of Representatives "About the House" magazine, ABC News, Advertiser, ARN, Canberra's CityNews magazine, Canberra Times, Computerworld.com.au, Direct Magazine, Herald Sun (& Career One), His Business Magazine, SA Defence Magazine, SC Magazine, Sydney Morning Herald (& Business Day), The Age, The Australian, ZDNet Australia; and International media: Asia Pacific Security Magazine, Sunday Times, E-finance & Payments Law & Policy, Electric New Paper, 938Live radio, The Star, FutureGov, Prepaid Trends magazine, and SC Magazine (US).
He was one of over 20 international (and one of two Australian) experts consulted by the research team preparing McAfee's commissioned report entitled "Virtual Criminology Report 2009: Virtually Here: The Age of Cyber Warfare". He has served as an editorial board member for a number of international journals, program committee member (and reviewer) for a number of international conferences, workshop/conference coordinator, and reviewer for a number of international conferences and journals in the areas of information security and cyber crime. More recently in 2011/2012, He was a member of the Australian Computer Society (ACS) Cyber Task Force of experts formed in October 2011, and is a member of ACS Specialism Advisory "Information Security" Group.
He is particularly aware that the time-specific nature of many political issues and the generally pressured work style in the government environment accentuate tight timeline, quality and other pressures. His awards and speaking invitations are testaments to the value of his work and potential to undertake work of significant international impact.
