International Symposium on Information and Cyber Security - ICS 2016, Orlando, Florida, USA

As it is widely known Cybercrime has had a large impact in our society including individuals as well as business and governmental organisations. Simultaneously, an exponentially increasing number of businesses and government sectors are increasingly becoming information-centric and reliant on communication technologies and networking in the context of the cyber-space. Consequently, there is an increasing concern regarding information security vulnerabilities and cyber security resilience, especially with respect to cyber-espionage, cyber-attacks and cyber-wars, cyber-crimes, etc.

Complex security systems are (or should be) embedded within enterprise architectures and organisational systems, which, in turn are also complex systems. These internal and external complexities require multi-disciplinary teams with skills for inter-disciplinary communication in order address the emerging problems in information and cyber security.

Information Systems and Software Engineering - ISSE 2016, Orlando, Florida, USA

When software is used in the context of, or developed for, information systems then feedback loops and synergies generation between these two kinds of activities and methodologies are potentiated. Feedback loops might be negative and co-regulative and/or positive and co-amplifying. A similar reasoning could be done with regards to the maintenance of information and software systems. Consequently, cybernetic loops (negative and positive feedback) could support co-evolutionary processes between both kinds of systems and activities along the entire lifecycles of both of them. The respective theoretical, conceptual, and methodological perspectives of both fields could also co-evolve synergistically if adequate feedback loops relate both kind of thinking and acting.

Accordingly, the purpose of ISSE 2016 Organizing Committee is to bring together both kinds of researchers, academics and professionals 1) to share their knowledge and experience in their respective fields and 2) to have the opportunity of interacting with colleagues for the interdisciplinary communication required for the generation of cybernetic loops that could support and/or accelerate co-evolutionary processes in theoretical, conceptual, and/or methodological thinking and acting in both fields.

At European level, an Open Science Agenda is being developed which will set out areas of specific action agreed by the European Commission and member states. Preparations are also under way to set up an Open Science Policy Platform that will be tasked with fleshing out the agenda.

At this Presidency conference member states and stakeholders can emphasise the importance of this transition. They will also launch the Open Science Policy Platform and draft a joint action agenda. The invitees will include politicians and officials, and stakeholders from Europe, such as researchers, publishers, representatives of universities and research organisations, and organisations and companies that support research. In addition, there will be an explicit focus on new users of scientific information.

World Bioenergy Congress and Expo, Rome, Italy

With our present non-renewable energy resources depleting and the threat of global warming, due to the emission of GHGs from our present resources, increasing, there is an industry transition all over the world towards renewable and more promising resource - bioenergy. With the current resource base, it is clear that the practical potential of bioenergy is much greater than its current exploitation. Obstacles to greater use of bioenergy include poor matching between demand and resources, and high costs compared to other energy sources. The impact of bio-energy may be ecological or environmental.

Many of the ecological and environmental impacts of bioenergy are associated with land use and land use change in connection to biomass production. Of particular high priority concerns regarding bio-energy are GHG emissions, habitat change, biodiversity, soil quality, and water quantity and quality. Most of the biomass we use commercially today comes from resources that are not sustainable. Our challenge is to ensure that biomass energy is produced in ways that not only reduce global warming pollution, but also protect the environment and do not increase the price of food. The meeting Bioenergy Conferences 2016 will adress, identify and focus the renewable energy.
