Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Title: Clone Detection to Find Model Patterns

Abstract: Clone detection techniques find similarities between programs, or within a program. These clones vary from exact copies to near miss clones in which the code is similar but not exact. NICAD is a tool developed at Queen's University that finds both identical and near miss clones. Simulink is a modelling language for used, among other things, to generated embedded software controllers. This talk will discuss how NICAD was applied to Simulink Models to find patterns in Simulink models.
