On the 27th, actor Kim Tae-woo and pianist Park Jong-hoon will give a concert full of the sweetness of spring as if a clip from a romantic movie.

"Thanks to the encouragement and support from the public and government as well as the efforts of the over 40,000 people working in the airport, Incheon International Airport won the title as the best airport for ASQ for nine years in a row and is now celebrating its 13th anniversary," said Acting President Choi Hong-yeol of the Incheon International Airport Corporation. "I hope this year's special Orchestra Festival, which was organized in an attempt to reciprocate the love we have received, will be enjoyed as a festival full of the vitality of spring." He added, "We will continuously strive to provide top-quality premium cultural services that surpass the expectations of our visitors."
The Millennium Hall stage on the ground floor of the passenger terminal where the performances will be held was decorated under the theme of 'Gallery in a Garden'. The beautiful landscaping harmonizes with the exquisite art works, drawing attention of visitors. At present, Millennium Hall is exhibiting 'I'm Pine', an installation work of sculptor Song Woon-chang who attracted the attention of the international art world as his work in Imjingak Pyeonghwanuri Park was selected as Korea's representative artwork. This stage gallery will continue to exhibit the works of various artists each season.
Incheon Airport is positioning itself as a leading "culture-port" by organizing various cultural facilities and programs along the main traffic paths of passengers in transit as well as those arriving and departing. The 12 cultural facilities and programs include year-round cultural performances such as 'A Walk of the Royal Family' parade, the Korean Traditional Culture Center, Korean Culture Street, a media wall and craft exhibition centers offering a range of Hallyu ("Korean wave") content representing both the past and present of Korea. Offering as many as 7,400 cultural performances a year, Incheon Airport is receiving favorable responses from airport visitors and even local residents who do not have many opportunities to enjoy art and culture in everyday life.

What do a firewall and a fortress have in common? They are no longer strong enough to protect the valuables housed inside. Like the walls of an old fortress, the cracks in the firewall are allowing the bad guys to slip in - unannounced and unnoticed. By the time these thieves get in, the damage is already done and the network is already compromised. Intellectual property is easily slipped out the back door leaving no trace of forced entry. If we want to reign in on these cybercriminals, it's hig...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information.

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...
