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.

Course on Message-Passing Programming with MPI, Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The world's largest supercomputers are used almost exclusively to run applications which are parallelised using Message Passing. The PRACE course covers all the basic knowledge required to write parallel programmes using this programming model, and is directly applicable to almost every parallel computer architecture.

Parallel programming by definition involves co-operation between processes to solve a common task. The programmer has to define the tasks that will be executed by the processors, and also how these tasks are to synchronise and exchange data with one another. In the message-passing model the tasks are separate processes that communicate and synchronise by explicitly sending each other messages. All these parallel operations are performed via calls to some message-passing interface that is entirely responsible for interfacing with the physical communication network linking the actual processors together. This course uses the de facto standard for message passing, the Message Passing Interface (MPI). It covers point-to-point communication, non-blocking operations, derived datatypes, virtual topologies, collective communication and general design issues.

The course is delivered in an intensive two-day format by EPCC's experienced trainers from the PRACE Advanced Training Centre (PATC). It is taught using a variety of methods including formal lectures, practical exercises, programming examples and informal tutorial discussions. This enables lecture material to be supported by the tutored practical sessions in order to reinforce the key concepts.

EMBO Conference: Stem Cells in Cancer and Regenerative Medicine, Heidelberg, Germany

The aim of this meeting is to integrate basic, translational and clinical aspects of stem cell research into a single framework. The goal is to give participants an overview of the model systems and scientific and logistic framework involved in gaining and exploiting basic knowledge of stem cell biology in cancer research and regenerative medicine settings.

Regenerative medicine is based on the ability of stem cells to repair tissue damage. The regenerative capacity of endogenous stem cells decreases with age, is impaired in degenerative diseases, and deregulated in cancer. Our ability to maintain and restore normal tissue function therefore requires that we understand not only the identity, properties and function of normal stem cells, but also the processes that alter their function during ageing, and in both malignant and degenerative disease.

The aim of this conference is to provide a comprehensive overview of these aspects of stem cell biology. The cellular and molecular properties of normal tissue stem cells will be discussed, as will the properties of the niches that maintain them. We will address alterations to stem cell function during ageing and malignant transformation, and how stem cells can be used for regenerative purposes and for disease modelling.

A clear and identifiable strength of this conference has been the broad subject coverage, which promotes an integrated and cross-disciplinary view of stem cell biology and regenerative medicine. This approach is fairly unique among stem cell conferences.

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

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.

Effective KPIs Management, Hong Kong

Without knowing what you have or how are you performing, you are essentially flying blind. Measurements of key performance indicators need to be taken in order to get factual and real time data. This will enable one to be flexible and pro-active in decisions and direction. However, the question becomes, what measurements and what methodology should be applied to get proper information from services and solutions. Many KPIs' measurements are just taken for the sake of it and accuracy and repeatability are nonexistent.

This workshop is ideal for any persons that want to expand their knowledge and capabilities in this area and get a firm grasp on concepts and practice. By empowering yourself with the ability to map out winning KPIs, you, and subsequently your organisation can transform your operations to meet business goals and strategies.

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.

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.

Deadline for on-line consultation is September 30, 2014.

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.

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.
