Abstract of the Talk: Nova-Volume
Nova-volume is a service that allows you to provide extra block-level storage to your OpenStack Compute instances (virtual machine). It provides something like Amazon Elastic Block Storage (EBS) service, and is basically an iSCSI solution that uses Logical Volume Manager (LVM) of Linux. This talk will cover the role of nova-volume in OpenStack, the service provided by nova-volume, and the enhancement we can do on nova-volume.
Nova volume 是一個可以提供 OpenStack 虛擬主機額外的 block device 儲存服務。它提供類似亞馬遜 EBS 的儲存服務，基本上以 iSCSI 搭配 LVM 在 Linux 下運作。此 talk 會介紹 nova-volume 在 OpenStack 所扮演的角色、nova-volume 提供的服務，以及如何改進 nova-volume。

Abstract of the Talk: GNU Radio
Software-defined radio(SDR) has been emerging for many years in various fields, including military, commercial communication systems, and scientific research, e.g. space exploration. GNU Radio is an open source SDR framework written in Python. This talk will introduce from basic concept of software-defined radio and various front-end hardware, and then illustrate how to use Python to develop software for software-defined radio.
多年來軟體無線電一直在軍事、商業通訊系統以及科學研究上有熱門的發展。GNU Radio 是一個以 Python 寫成提供軟體無線電的發展套件。這個演講會從軟體無線電的基本概念開始，並介紹軟體無線電所需要的硬體，最後介紹如何用 Python 來協助發展軟體無線電的軟體。
