A paper authored by a team from the Federal University of Technology Akure, FUTA has been adjudged the best presentation at the 8th International Conference for Internet Technology and Secured Transactions (ICITST-2013 )held in London , United Kingdom in December 2013. The Paper titled “DGM Approach to Network Attacker and Defender Strategies” which was presented at the conference by Dr Kayode Alese, was co-authored by himself, Iwasokun Gabriel Babatunde and Haruna Danjuma Israel (all from the Department of Computer Science, FUTA). The FUTA team’s paper beat 1241 papers received from 96 countries to emerge the overall best according to the panel of assessors.
Of all the 1241 papers received in the ICITST 2013 from 96 countries, six submissions were made from the Federal University of Technology Akure. Out of the 157 papers finally accepted after thorough shortlisting, four out of the six papers from FUTA were accepted for presentations. The paper which was later adjudged as the best for the year 2013 dwelt on novel strategies to checkmate infiltrations of secured transactions on the information super highway. A lot of uplifting remarks from the international faculty went in favour of the ambassadors of FUTA who presented the award-winning paper. Alese, who is the current dean of Students Affairs, said the general consensus at the conference was that FUTA showed great strength in global competitivenessthrough excellence in technological advancement, learning and research.
Reacting to the feat the Vice Chancellor, Professor Adebiyi Daramola said it was another confirmation of the excellence that FUTA has come to be known for. “We are not surprised about this feat; Research and scholarship are our main selling points in FUTA. In the last quarter of 2013 our students coached by Dr Alese came out tops in two major software competitions
organized by the Institute of Software Professionals of Nigeria and
the Federal Ministry of Education in conjunction with the British
Council. This feat is an icing on the cake for us and we will not rest on our oars , will continue to strengthen our institution’s culture of scholarship and excellence. This honour is not for FUTA alone but our country and Africa.” Professor Daramola said.
