9th Workshop on Workflows in Support of Large-Scale Science, New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

Data Intensive Workflows - a.k.a. scientific workflows - are a key technology to manage Big Data analytics in all scientific areas, exploiting capabilities of large-scale distributed and parallel computing infrastructures. Workflows enable scientists to design complex analysis that are composed of individual application components or services designed collaboratively. On large-scale computing infrastructures routinely used for e-Sciences today, workflow management systems provide both a formal description of distributed processes and an engine to enact applications composed of wealth of concurrent processes. Furthermore, workflow enactment engines often ensure data traceability by registering data processing provenance traces upon execution.

The size of the data and the scale of the data analysis flows often lead to complex and distributed data sets management. Workflow formalisms including adequate structures for Big Data sets representation and concurrent processing are needed. Besides the magnitude of data processed by the workflow components, the intermediate and resulting data needs to be annotated with provenance and other information to evaluate the quality of the data and support the repeatability of the analysis.

The process of workflow design and execution in a distributed environment can be very complex and can involve multiple stages including their textual or graphical specification, the mapping of the high-level workflow descriptions onto the available resources, as well as monitoring and debugging of the subsequent execution. Further, since computations and data access operations are performed on shared resources, there is an increased interest in managing the fair allocation and management of those resources at the workflow level.

Data-driven computations are increasingly considered to harness the Big Data challenges. Yet, scientific experiments also require the description of complex control flows. Adequate workflow descriptions are needed to support the complex workflow management process, which includes workflow design, workflow reuse, and modifications made to the workflow over time - for example modifications to the individual workflow components. Additional workflow annotations may provide guidelines and requirements for resource mapping and execution.

The Ninth Workshop on Workflows in Support of Large-Scale Science focuses on the entire workflow lifecycle including the workflow design, mapping, robust execution and the recording of provenance information. The workshop also welcomes contributions in the applications area, where the requirements on the workflow management systems can be derived. The topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:

  • Big Data analytics Workflows.
  • Data-driven workflow processing.
  • Workflow composition, tools and languages.
  • Workflow execution in distributed environments.
  • Workflows on the Cloud.
  • Exascale computing with workflows.
  • Workflow refinement tools that can manage the workflow mapping process.
  • Workflow fault-tolerance and recovery techniques.
  • Workflow user environments, including portals.
  • Workflow applications and their requirements.
  • Adaptive workflows.
  • Workflow monitoring.
  • Workflow optimizations.
  • Performance analysis of workflows.
  • Workflow debugging.

Next Generation Patient Experience, Dallas, Texas, USA

For health care providers, one of the most significant transformations ushered in by the Affordable Care Act is the financial incentive to shift from their traditional profit-driven models to be more acutely focused on patient satisfaction. At the same time, patient expectations have also evolved and they are no longer OK with being passive recipients of care. They are more engaged in their own treatment options, more likely to do their own research, and increasingly expect to be able to interact with their health care providers in the same ways they do with commercial brands.

All this has greatly affected the way hospitals and health care networks approach the way they deliver care. Staying competitive has never been more critical. Next Generation Patient Experience brings together executives from across the spectrum of US providers, all of whom are tasked with overseeing their organisation's patient experience strategy and implementing their programmes.

Symposium on Innovation-Entrepreneurship and their relationships with Cybernetics and Informatics - SIE 2015, Orlando, Florida, USA

Concepts, theories, methodologies, and technologies related to Cybernetics and Informatics are sources of and provide support for innovations and, hence, entrepreneurship of non-ICCT - Information, Communications, and Control Technologies - innovations. Reciprocally, entrepreneurship and innovations are required for transforming ICCT research into innovations, which integrate this research to Society, legitimizing and economically justifying it. Hence, we can notice the present implicit and potentially "explicitable" - not yet documented or consciously thought or practiced - cybernetic relationships between "entrepreneurship and innovations" on one hand and "Cybernetics and Informatics" on the other. To make explicit this kind of relationships is one of the main purposes of the Symposium on Innovation and Entrepreneurship: SIE 2015.

Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics' Conference on Computational Science and Engineering, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

Computational Science and Engineering (CSE) complements theory and experiment as a critical component of scientific discovery. CSE is indispensable for leading edge investigation and engineering design in a vast number of industrial sectors, including for example, aerospace, automotive, biological, chemical, and semiconductor technologies that all rely increasingly on advanced modelling and simulation. CSE also contributes to policy and decisions relating to human health, resources, transportation, and defense. Finally, in many new areas such as medicine, the life sciences, management and marketing - e.g. data- and stream mining, and finance, techniques and algorithms from CSE are of growing importance.

CSE is naturally interdisciplinary. Its goals concern understanding and analyzing complex systems, predicting their behaviour, and optimizing processes and designs. CSE thus grows out of physical applications, while depending on computer architecture and software, and having at its core powerful algorithms. At the frontiers of CSE remain many open problems and challenges, including the verification, validation, and uncertainty quantification of computational models; the analysis and assimilation of large and complex data sets, including techniques for visualization and animation; and the design of flexible CSE software.

The SIAM CSE conference seeks to enable in-depth technical discussions on a wide variety of major computational efforts on large-scale problems in science and engineering, foster the interdisciplinary culture required to meet these large-scale challenges, and promote the training of the next generation of computational scientists.

6th International Conference on Fixed Combination in the Treatment of Hypertension, Dyslipidemia and Diabetes Mellitus, Berlin, Germany

Fixed combination has made a comeback as an initial therapy in the treatment of hypertension due to the fact that antihypertensive monotherapy does not address the multifactorial nature of hypertension as a disease with many pathways; using more than one drug makes more therapeutic sense, as combined agents cover more than one etiology. The additive or synergistic effect of combination therapy fully lowers blood pressure in patients who tend to have less than full response to one component only. Several different polypill formulations have been developed and trials demonstrated their short term feasibility, safety and efficacy. In addition, comparison of monthly out of pocket costs between fixed combinations and additive combinations indicate the advantage of effective combination therapy.

The conference is intended for experts in the fields of diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidemia, internal medicine, cardiology, nephrology, endocrinology, family medicine, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners and physicians.
