Seafood Safety: New Findings & Innovation Challenges - ECsafeSEAFOOD Final Event, Brussels, Belgium

This is a unique event that marks the end of the ECsafeSEAFOOD project which has assessed food safety issues related to non-regulated contaminants present in seafood as a result of environmental contamination and evaluated their impact on public health.

Seafood has been recognised as a high-quality, healthy and safe food type and is one of the most important food commodities consumed worldwide. However, seafood, like other types of food, can also be a source of harmful environmental contaminants with potential to impact on human health. To address these issues, ECsafeSEAFOOD provides scientific evidence to serve as a basis for further development of seafood safety, public health and environmental policies and measures, by seeking to establish a quantitative link between the contamination of the marine environment and that of seafood.

Conference participants will have the opportunity to exchange knowledge on seafood safety, identify the key issues associated with seafood safety in Europe and discuss strategies to mitigate these risks, debate seafood safety risks and challenges, and network with food safety experts.

Workshop on Clusters, Clouds and Grids for Life Sciences, Madrid, Spain

Today, biomedicine and bioinformatics rely heavily on large scale computational resources, as they typically employ data- and compute-intensive methods. Omics, biomedical imaging and computational models quickly reach data volumes of terabytes and petabytes, data analysis may need teraflops or petaflops of computing power. New challenges arise from complex analysis of distributed heterogeneous data, for example in translational medicine.

Distributed IT-systems such as Grids, Clouds and recently Big Data environments are used for to speed-up large experiments and development time for new algorithms. Distributed systems also allow for better availability of new computational methods for supporting large-scale multi-centric collaborations. However, specific challenges in the employment of such systems for biomedical applications, such as security, reliability and user-friendliness, often impede wide-range adoption of prototype solutions.

This workshop aims at bringing together developers of bioinformatics and biomedical applications and researchers in the field of distributed IT systems. The goals of the workshop are to exchange and discuss existing solutions and latest developments in both fields, in particular for identified gaps and roadblocks. The workshop further intends to collaboratively explore new approaches to successfully apply distributed IT-systems in translational research, clinical intervention, and decision-making.

Contributions are expected but not restricted to the following topics:

  • Detailed application use-cases highlighting achievements and roadblocks
  • Exploitation of distributed IT resources for Life Sciences, health care and research applications, for example medical imaging, disease modelling, bioinformatics, public health informatics, drug discovery, clinical trials
  • Service and/or algorithm design and implementation applicable to medical and bioinformatics applications

The theme of this year's conference is Sustainability, Success and Impact - particularly apropos as the organizers strive to succeed in making the conference itself a self-sustaining event with continued impact. The theme also reflects key objectives for those managing, developing, and using advanced research computing throughout the nation and the world - sustainability of the infrastructure environment, measuring and ensuring success for those organizations providing and using advanced research computing, and impact of the technologies on the workforce and on science and scholarship.

Deadline for paper submission is March 6, 2017.

Third International Scientific Conference "BOINC-based High Performance Computing: Fundamental Research and Development", Petrozavodsk, Republic of Karelia, Russia

High performance computing is extremely important for modern fundamental and applied science. Desktop Grid technologies are used in scientific research together with clusters and Grid systems, while Volunteer Computing assist in breakthroughs in astronomy, biotechnology, fundamental physics and mathematics, and many other branches of science. However, unused potential of Desktop Grids is still quite high.

The Third International Scientific Conference "BOINC-based High Performance Computing: Fundamental Research and Development" is devoted to studying potential of distributed Desktop Grid computing, exchange of experience in creation and support of fundamental and applied BOINC projects. Among other, reports concerning technologies of development of distributed applications, processing of data, mathematical modeling of Desktop Grid, fundamental and applied BOINC projects will be presented.

During the conference a meeting of the Russian Branch of "International Desktop Grid Federation" and a meeting with crunchers who participate in BOINC-projects will be organized.

Deadline for paper submission is April 3, 2017.
