Published 06.22.2012


Asesh K. Das, a professor of computer science at Pennsylvania College of Technology, was among the presenters at the recent Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers’ Southeastern Conference in Orlando, Fla.

Sudden disruption in the electric power distribution system is always a serious problem, notes Das, whose paper – titled “Cyber-Physical Operation Security with a Collaborative Knowledge Grid System” – details a collaboratively working software tool developed at West Virginia University and discusses what can be done in emergency situations when there is a power breakdown.

A team of WVU research scientists also participated in the presentation at the conference, which promotes theories and applications in a variety of engineering disciplines. Sponsored by IEEE Region 3, it attracted researchers, professionals and students to the heart of Central Florida’s high-tech corridor for four days of tutorial sessions and workshops.

Retiring after 18 years with the School of Business and Computer Technologies faculty, Das holds a doctorate from Visva-Bharati University, earned master’s degrees from North Bengal University and Florida Institute of Technology, and has a bachelor’s degree from Calcutta University.
