Research Data Alliance Fourth Plenary Meeting, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The current global research data landscape is highly fragmented, by disciplines or by domains, from oceanography, life sciences and health, to agriculture, space and climate. When it comes to cross-disciplinary activities, the notions of "building blocks" of common data infrastructures and building specific "data bridges" are becoming accepted metaphors for approaching the data complexity and enable data sharing. The Research Data Alliance enables data to be shared across barriers through focused Working Groups and Interest Groups, formed of experts from around the world - from academia, industry and government.

Crowd Computing 2014 Event, Almere, The Netherlands

Crowd Computing 2014 brings together a community that is interested in several aspects of the field. The event kicks off with a one-day tutorial, followed by a technical meeting of the International Desktop Grid Federation. A workshop about Citizen Science Technology Platforms concludes the three-day event.

For the tutorial, the main focus will be on Crowd computing technologies and how they can be integrated into Citizen Science Platforms. Experts will give presentations on BOINC, the XtreemFS Cloud Files system, sensor Cloud computing, Big Data integration in Citizen Science platforms and other related topics. The Tutorial is organised by the Cloud Summerschool Almere.

On the second day, the 50 organisations and 250 individuals who are member of the International Desktop Grid Federation, will get the opportunity to meet other members and discuss common issues and opportunities. The technical meeting will focus on three themes for Desktop Grid/Crowd computing operators, including financial aspects; managing and operations; and communication, especially with citizens. At the end of the day the members will leave with a lot of exciting new ideas for their own infrastructure and donors.

The topic of the workshop on 25 September is "Citizen Science Technology Platforms". Interest in Citizen Science is growing rapidly. Crowd Sourcing and Crowd computing are giving it a boost. Most Citizen Science projects start out as a project developing their own support platform or using some general available packages. Recently more general Citizen Science Platforms are emerging that try to support more projects. In Crowd computing, some technology platforms are already in use for about a decade and have accumulated a wealth of experience. Although each citizen science project is different and can appeal to a different need there are a number of services and tools that can be used and shared among many projects. This could also help citizens move easily between projects. The workshop will focus on common tools and common services for Citizen Science Technology Platforms.

International Conference on Knowledge Management and Information Sharing - KMIS 2014, Rome, Italy

Knowledge Management (KM) is a discipline concerned with the analysis and technical support of practices used in an organisation to identify, create, represent, distribute and enable the adoption and leveraging of good practices embedded in collaborative settings and, in particular, in organisational processes. Effective knowledge management is an increasingly important source of competitive advantage, and a key to the success of contemporary organisations, bolstering the collective expertise of its employees and partners.

Information Sharing (IS) is a term used for a long time in the information technology (IT) lexicon, related to data exchange, communication protocols and technological infrastructures. Although standardization is indeed an essential element for sharing information, IS effectiveness requires going beyond the syntactic nature of IT and delve into the human functions involved in the semantic, pragmatic and social levels of organizational semiotics. The two areas are intertwined as information sharing is the foundation for knowledge management.

Topics include:

  • E-Learning
  • Organisational semiotics
  • e-Government
  • Digital libraries
  • Interoperability
  • Enterprise Information Systems
  • Metadata and structured documents
  • Best practices & communities of practice
  • Business intelligence & CRM

International Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Information Retrieval - KDIR 2014, Rome, Italy

Knowledge Discovery is an interdisciplinary area focusing upon methodologies for identifying valid, novel, potentially useful and meaningful patterns from data, often based on underlying large data sets. A major aspect of Knowledge Discovery is data mining, i.e. applying data analysis and discovery algorithms that produce a particular enumeration of patterns (or models) over the data. Knowledge Discovery also includes the evaluation of patterns and identification of which add to knowledge.

Information retrieval (IR) is concerned with gathering relevant information from unstructured and semantically fuzzy data in texts and other media, searching for information within documents and for metadata about documents, as well as searching relational databases and the Web. Automation of information retrieval enables the reduction of what has been called "information overload". Information retrieval can be combined with knowledge discovery to create software tools that empower users of decision support systems to better understand and use the knowledge underlying large data sets.

Special Session on Text Mining - SSTM 2014, Rome, Italy

With the increasing popularity and availability of Internet-based technologies, as well as the proliferation of digital computing devices and their use in communication, huge amounts of Human generated content is produced every day in the form of documents, email, instant messaging, social network sites, blogs, and other textual corpora. As a result, we have witnessed an increased demand for systems and algorithms capable of mining textual data, seeking interesting characteristics, hidden patterns, structure, trends, knowledge and key relationships within these large textual corpora.

Text mining, combining the disciplines of data mining, information extraction, information retrieval, text categorization, probabilistic modelling, linear algebra, machine learning, and computational linguistics, is a new interdisciplinary field that emerged to address these issues. Examples of emergent applications include metadata generation, visualization techniques, information extraction, text segmentation and classification, text summarization, and trend analysis, to name a few.

This special session aims at sharing new ideas and works on models and approaches for improving over state of the art techniques for mining unstructured, semi-structured, and fully structured textual data.

Decision Making in Information Security Management - DMISM 2014, Rome, Italy

Information Security Management is an issue that managers and decision makers have to deal with, especially when the organisation's activity deeply depends on ITC resources. Caring about information security is no more an option, but a management objective that needs to be managed as any other organisational resource. The use of new technologies, the increase use of the Internet, the emergence of the Internet-enabled services (BYOD and IoT), software logs and mobile applications, have altogether promoted the collection of massive amounts of data, contributing to the emergence of the concept of Big Data. A growing portion of that data is directly or indirectly related to security events, creating a true nightmare to security managers. In this context, it is fundamental de adopt decision support systems in the information security domain, to support management decisions. Currently, the rapid response to the security events and the establishment of preventive actions to manage security are starting to become a competitive strategy to organisations.

This special session provides a forum for researchers and practitioners to discus practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the scope of Information Security Intelligence and all related issues.

Food Safety Considerations for Innovative Nutrition Solutions, New York City, New York, USA

Nutritious, abundantly available food is something that many take for granted. When food is plentiful, the choice of selecting foods from a local supplier or limiting purchases to food produced using an acceptable level of organic production methods or minimal processing becomes the norm. However, predictions of significant world population growth in the near future may profoundly affect how food is viewed. The luxury of selecting food for acceptable production methods or locality is likely to be replaced with concerns regarding availability and preventing waste.

How does food safety fit into a changing landscape for food security in the future? How can waste be eliminated, yet prevent an increase in overall foodborne disease? The food safety concerns of the future are expected to undergo parallel evolution as priorities shift to finding enough food. This conference will seek to address those issues through the thoughts and predictions of internationally acclaimed experts as we prepare for the food safety issues of the future.

Workshop on Mathematics and Digital Science, Brussels, Belgium

Mathematicians work on the important practical issues of our era and their work impacts nearly every area of science, engineering and technology. Today, the abundance of data on social, technical, economic, ecological, and technological systems will need novel mathematical tools so that these data can help us tackle pressing societal challenges.

The European Commission is organizing an on-line consultation and workshop to explore how mathematics can help science to better address the Big Data and high performance computing (HPC) challenges.

The EC will gather opinions about:

  • The role of mathematics in Big Data. Could new mathematical methods from e.g. topology, stochastic, probability theory etc., help Europe fully profit from available data and solve main problems in data sciences? What methods can mathematics contribute to the data challenges? How can mathematicians, politicians, businesses and society best work together in making use of data to tackle important societal challenges?
  • The role of mathematics in HPC, in particular exascale computing. In the light of the changes imposed on computing due to the data deluge: How can mathematicians help Europe advance towards data-centred HPC?
  • The role of e-infrastructures in maths. Could e-infrastructures help resolve the biggest challenges in maths? How e-infrastructures could help mathematicians manage the existing level of complexity of mathematical problems in ways that are not feasible today and may result in significant scientific breakthroughs? What are the needs in terms of specific e-infrastructure services?
  • The impact of applied and industrial mathematics on innovation. How can we maximise it?
  • The preparation of the FET Proactive (HPC) and/or the e-Infrastructure Work Programmes 2016-17 under the Excellent Science pillar of Horizon 2020. Do you have a concrete proposal for a topic linked to this discussion to be included in the next work programmes?
  • Other suggestions for new mathematics related topics to be discussed on-line or in an upcoming workshop, including new practices in mathematics that could be stimulated by e-infrastructure and online collaborative media.

15th EMBL|EMBO Science and Society Conference, Heidelberg, Germany

The focus of this meeting will be on the impact food has on our body and mind, both from the long-term evolutionary perspective and from the perspective of everyday life. The conference programme will highlight the biological and cultural processes through which food both defines us and transforms us. Metaphorically, as well as literally, in what sense are we what we eat?

Humans are the only species that cook their food and this unique trait coincided with the evolutionary emergence of our earliest ancestors about two million years ago. Scientists argue that cooking must have had a profound effect on our evolution because it increased food efficiency, which allowed human ancestors to spend less time foraging, chewing, and digesting. Then, as humans spread to every corner of the planet, the availability of diverse food sources caused groups of humans to adapt differently to different environments, and this may have left its mark on their genomes.

This raises some fascinating questions: How have diets of people in different parts of the world shaped human physiology? How do we acquire our sense of taste and smell? What are the underpinnings of our ability to taste and distinguish so many different flavours? Do genetic differences predispose individuals to perceive the taste of foods differently? How does the sociocultural environment into which we happen to be born, and within which we are raised, shape our food preferences and perception? Are our eating habits imprinted on our faculties of perception?

Often eating (or not eating) gives rise to health problems. While the world's food supplies are considered to be plentiful, the World Health Organization cites pervasive malnutrition as the greatest single threat to public health. At the same time, in the more affluent parts of the world, public health and human wellbeing are being compromised by excessive food consumption and successive food scandals. How can we address global food inequality, and what can be done to curb the obesity epidemic?

What is the relationship between the food we eat and the micro-organisms we carry within us? What is known about food and health across cultures? Have gene pools of populations around the world been affected by the nature of their diets? Why does the genetic make-up of some people make them particularly vulnerable to certain foods - reactions that range from addictive responses to allergic reactions?

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.
  • Workflow provenance.
  • Interactive workflows.
  • Workflow interoperability.

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.

6th International Conference on Society and Information Technologies - ICSIT 2015, Orlando, Florida, USA

The purpose of the Organizing Committee of ICSIT 2015 is to support and accelerate the cybernetic loops between Society and ICT and to help in the creation of relationships among different societal sectors, by means of bringing together researchers, professionals, practitioners and decision-makers from the Academic, Private and Public Sectors to share their findings, experience and knowledge with regards to the applications and impact of ICT.

ICT Applications originally created and implemented in a societal sector showed to be also useful and effective in another sectors. Analogical thinking and interdisciplinary approaches have supported the re-conception and re-design of an ICT application that showed to be effective and useful in one domain to another societal domain. The conception of Science 2.0 for example has been done by means of analogical thinking applied to the concept of Web 2.0, and the spread socio-technical systems, as it is the case of MySpace, Facebook, Wikipedia, flickr, YouTube, etc.

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.
