Prof. John Day - a foremost pioneer of the internet, computer scientist and historian
John Day has been involved in research and development of computer networks since 1970, when they were the 12th node on ARPANet and has developed and designed protocols for everything from the data link layer to the application layer. Also making fundamental contributions to research on distributed databases. He managed the development of the OSI reference model, naming and addressing, and a major contributor to the upper-layer architecture. He was a major contributor to the development of network management architecture, working in the area since 1984 and building and deploying a network management system, a decade ahead of comparable systems. Mr. Day has published Patterns in Network Architecture (Prentice Hall, 2008), which has been characterized (embarrassingly) as "the most important book on network protocols in general and the Internet in particular ever written."
Mr. Day is also a recognized scholar in the history of cartography, and contributed to exhibits at the Smithsonian.
Mark O’Malley, founder and Director of the Electricity Research Centre
Mark O'Malley was born in Dublin, Ireland in 1962 and graduated with a BE and PhD in Electrical Engineering from the National University of Ireland in 1983 and 1987 respectively. He is the Professor of Electrical Engineering at University College Dublin (UCD), founder and Director of the Electricity Research Centre (http://erc.ucd.ie) an industry supported research group, chaired by the Irish energy regulator. His teaching and research interests are in Grid Integration of Renewable Energy. He has spent sabbaticals in University of Virginia, University of Washington and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Colorado. He has received two Fulbright awards (1994 & 1999).
In 2007 he was elected a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and in 2008 he was elected a Member of the Royal Irish Academy. He is a Fellow of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) and a Fellow of the Institute of Engineers of Ireland (IEI).
He has authored over 250 academic papers and supervised 17 PhDs to completion. He is a member of the Engineering Sciences Panel of the European Research Council and previously a Member of the IEEE Ethics and Member Conduct Committee. He is a member of the European Academy of Sciences Advisory Council Energy Panel and is the chair of the IEEE Power and Energy Society Task Force on Capacity Value of Wind, member of the Editorial Board of the IEEE Transactions on Power Systems, member of the North American Electric Reliability Corporation Task Force on Integrating Variable Generation, member of the IEEE Power Engineering Society Wind Power Coordinating Committee and an IEEE distinguished lecturer in the grid integration of renewable energy. He is the Irish representative on the International Energy Agency Research Task 25: Design and Operation of Power Systems with Large Amounts of Wind Power and is the lead author with responsibility for integration issues in the recent International Panel on Climate Change Special Report on Renewable Energy Sources and Climate Change Mitigation. In 2008 he received the Utility Wind Interest Group (UWIG), Achievement Award. He acts as a consultant to all major players in the Irish Electricity industry and several US entities including the Department of Energy, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, giving advice on issues as diverse as electricity market design and the grid integration of renewable sources. He acted as the chief technical consultant to the All Island Grid Study on the island of Ireland and has served on the Technical Review Committees of several US studies including the Eastern Wind Integration and Transmission Study and Western Wind and Solar Integration Study.
