ECE 6570 Telecomm Security Protocols: Using Serious Gaming in Spring 2012

CyberSim Game: ECE 6570 combines Virtual Worlds, Augmented Reality, and Classroom Lectures in a serious game, which is based on principles of Cyber Security (virtual world), Physical Security (augmented reality), and Social Engineering (reality/class lectures).

GWU Students: The class meets every Saturday 9:30AM - 12:00PM, Jan 07 to April 28 2012 for in-class lectures. In-class assignments will use augmented reality to simulate physical security scenarios such as man-made and natural disasters. Combining location-based protocols with the physical layout of the school, we can simulate disasters safely. Class grades will be based on the student's score in each Game/Scenario.

Virtual World Students: All are welcome to participate in all events virtually. We are accepting 20 additional students from SecondLife, 20 students from MOSES, and 20 more students from OSgrid.

Guest Lectures and Seminars

  • FreeSWITCH weekly Community Conf call (Feb/1/12): Feb 1 - Robert Daniel from GWU, discussing; "Using Serious Gaming to Teach Telecomm Concepts"
  • Douglas Maxwell (Feb/11/12): Douglas Maxwell conducts research into the use of virtual environments for strategic applications as a Science and Technology Manager for the U.S. Army Research Lab, Simulation and Training Technology Center in Orlando, Florida. He is the founder of the Military Users of Virtual Worlds working group and servers as a virtual world technology advisor to the Office Deputy Under Secretary of Defense Readiness. He is the director of the Military Open Simulator Enterprise Strategy (MOSES) and responsible for the Enhanced Dynamic Geosocial Environment (EDGE) architecture development and deployment. Mr. Maxwell is exploring extremely flexible virtual environments such as real time terrain warping in response to explosions, context switching artificial intelligence behavior models, and computational steering in response to user input. He was awarded a patent related to automated terrain generation and multiple engineering and innovation excellence awards from the U.S. Navy. He holds a bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering and a master of science in Mechanical Engineering with a significant course background in software engineering. Mr. Maxwell is currently pursuing a Ph. D. in Modeling and Simulation at the University of Central Florida.
