【Presented with the 2012 IAENG International Conference on Scientific Computing award at international conference IMECS 2012!】 Associate Professor (tenure track) Masaru Fukushi has received an award for the outstanding paper he presented at the International MultiConference of Engineers and Computer Scientists 2012 (IMECS 2012) on May 9. ○ Name of the award: Certificate of Merit for the 2012 IAENG International Conference on Scientific Computing ○ Award-winning paper: Modeling and Performance Evaluation of Colluding Attack in Volunteer Computing Systems, K. Watanabe, N. Funabiki, T. Nakanishi, and M. Fukushi, Proc. of IMECS, pp. 1658-1663, 2012  The paper evaluated the impact of conspiracy attacks on volunteer computing, in which large-scale parallel distributed computing systems are constructed by gathering together PCs, etc. connected to the Internet. Conspiracy attack means an attack in which the same erroneous computational result is returned from multiple PCs. The threat of such attacks, for example by malicious computational interference and infection by computer viruses, increases every year. In the paper, Associate Professor Fukushi used computer simulations to model conspiracy attacks, and evaluated their impact on the reliability of computational results. As a result of this, he was able to prove that the approaches to achieving high reliability which are currently widely used cannot completely guarantee reliability, and that the approach proposed by his group can.
