Today's workplace is anywhere there is computer connectivity. Bookstores and coffee shops have become extensions of offices. Software consultant Robert Gezelter will address that phenomenon during two lectures at the FedEx Institute of Technology at the University of Memphis as part of the of the IEEE (Institute for Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Computer Society Distinguished Visitors Program.

Gezelter will discuss  "Architectural Issues for Embedded Processors and Applications" Tuesday, Nov. 1, at 5 p.m. He will explore "Safe Computing in the Age of Ubiquitous Connectivity" Wednesday, Nov. 2, at 5 p.m. Both lectures are free and open to the public.

In the first lecture, Gezelter will examine how embedded microprocessors have evolved into systems with capacities approximating the mainframe computers of the 1980s. Microprocessor software infrastructure issues have grown from simplistic run-time libraries to full-fledged operating systems and tool libraries. In these more complex software environments, the selection of correct tool kits and paradigms can be an enormous advantage.

In the second lecture, he will look at the privacy, security and integrity issues of universal connectivity, and how wired and wireless networks can be used to free employees from their desks yet preserve the security and integrity of the systems they use.

The IEEE is a global technical professional society serving the pubic interest and members in electrical, electronics, computer, information and other technologies.
