MBA for Oil and Gas, Cape Town, South Africa

The oil and gas industry tends to hire talents with diverse skills, experience and qualification. However, research has indicated that key decision-makers are not always familiar with this sector's technical operations, commercial drivers or the complex jargon and terminology.

This course is specially designed to bridge gaps in your knowledge. It covers the upstream (exploration and production), mid-stream and downstream sectors of this industry. It's aimed at non-technical people within exploration, production, refining and service companies, as well as professional advisers to the sector.

The 4 Day MBA in Oil and Gas is a practical and interactive upstream programme that develops the manager and senior professional through providing a deeper understanding of the dynamics of the petroleum business. Attendees leave with a practical perspective on how to create and capture value in the industry. This is a business training program with limited technical content. No previous business training is required to take this course. Delegates will walk away with the perspective of the Director General of a national oil company; or the CEO of an international oil company; or of the Minister of Petroleum in government.

You'll gain insight into current issues, industry terminology, how money flows through the entire business chain, how different parts of the business interact with each other and with other companies, as well as with external investors.

You'll gain an excellent working knowledge of what all the key terms in oil and gas actually mean. This includes exploration, drilling, reserves, production, processing, transportation, storage, product prices, price risk management, world legal systems, and economics.

Resilient Health Care, Middelfart, Denmark

We usually think of safety by referring to its opposite, namely the lack or absence of safety. In the traditional view of safety, called Safety-I, safety is defined as the absence of accidents and incidents or as the "freedom from unacceptable risk". In consequence of that, patient safety research and management has focused on unsafe system functioning rather than on safe functioning. Resilient health care, on the other hand, assumes that things go wrong or right for the same basic reasons. This represents an alternative view of safety, called Safety-II, which defines safety as the ability to succeed under varying conditions. In Safety-II, the study of the variability of everyday functioning is the necessary prerequisite for the understanding of how performance can be safe, both on the levels of the individual and of the organisation.

Control the Chaos and Clear Out the Clutter - Webinar, USA

Even the best and the brightest become overwhelmed when work gets chaotic. When the pressure is on, all of your energy is spent putting out fires, chasing deadlines and just trying to get tasks completed to the best of your ability. Eventually, clutter starts piling up around you and contributes to the chaos of your days. You feel as if you're slowly losing control.

Your in-box fills up. Your desk is strewn with files, books, office supplies and other odds and ends. You can't find the form you need to send to the New York office. You've lost Mr. Johnson's phone number. When you walk into your workspace in the morning, your heart sinks because everything is such a mess. How can you be productive in such a pit?

Studies show a psychological connection between lack of clutter and a more peaceful existence - at work and at home. If your "space" is cluttered, you simply can't function at an optimal level. You're not necessarily looking to become a "neat freak", but you would like to be organized enough to know where things are when you need them, right? Wouldn't you like to be able to use the surface of your desk for something other than storage?

Don't let chaos and clutter keep you from maximizing your productivity any longer. After just one hour with our expert, you will be able to:

  • Decide what to do with every piece of paper that hits your in-box
  • File time-sensitive documents (plane tickets, bills, reminders) effectively
  • Use a "mini agenda" to cut the time you spend on the phone
  • Reap the benefits of a well-crafted to-do list
  • Walk away from your desk at the end of the day without dreading returning to it in the morning

2nd Workshop on Large Scale Distributed Virtual Environments on Clouds and P2P - LSDVE 2014, Porto, Portugal

The recent advances in networking have determined an increasing use of information technology to support distributed cooperative applications. Several novel applications have emerged in this area, like computer supported collaborative work (CSCW), large scale distributed virtual world, collaborative recommender systems, collaborative learning systems.

The definition of these applications requires to afford several challenges, like the definition of user interfaces, of coordination protocols, and of proper middle-ware and architectures supporting distributed cooperation. Collaborative applications may greatly benefits also from the support of Cloud and P2P architectures. As a matter of fact, with the emergence of readily available Cloud platforms, collaborative applications developers have the opportunity of deploying their applications in the Cloud, or by exploiting a hybrid P2P/Cloud architectures with dynamically adapting cloud support. This brings possibilities to smaller developers that were reserved for the big companies until recently.

The integration of mobile/Cloud platforms for Collaborative Applications is another challenge for the widespread of these applications. This track aims to provide a venue for researchers to present and discuss important aspects of P2P/Cloud collaborative applications and of the platforms supporting these applications. The track's aim is to investigate open challenges for such applications, related to both the applications design and to the definition of proper architectures. Some important challenges are, for instance, collaborative protocols design, latency reduction/hiding techniques for guaranteeing real time constraints, large-scale processing of user information, privacy and security issues, state consistency/persistence.

The track will both present assessment of current state and introduce further directions. Topics include:

Understanding Procurement Fraud: Identification, Detection and Prevention, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

The increase in contract management and the outsourcing of goods and services has created an increase in procurement fraud. It is important to have the correct controls, processes and fraud preventative strategies in place. Every organisation, whether large or small, buys in products or services and when this activity is high value spend it can become a natural target for fraudsters.

Fraud within the procurement life cycle is high risk and often becomes embedded within the organisation and can result in recurring losses. This type of fraud also requires some form of insider collaboration, which puts your organisation at risk. This means that the fraudsters may know your company processes and confidential insider information.

There is plenty of published guidance on how to prevent procurement fraud yet it continues to occur. However, this workshop provides training using practically gained commercial procurement fraud experience and is supported by academic research.

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.

Deadline for paper submission is August 22, 2014.

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

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.

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.

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.
