Citizen Empowered Science, Vienna, Austria

Over the last decade, rapid advances in ICT, computing and communication technologies (e.g. internet, smartphones, social networks), have enabled non-specialists to participate in truly scientific endeavours. This so-called "Citizen Science" supports societal applications and has now taken many shapes, for example, it created new ways to fully exploit satellite data to make real science.

A pioneering project was "SETI@Home", which has harnessed the idle computing time of millions of participants in the search for extraterrestrial life. Citizen scientists also act as volunteer classifiers of heavenly objects, such as in "galaxyzoo.org", or to track Solar Storm through "solarstormwatch.com".

Looking back at our planet, citizen scientists can make observations of biodiversity to support validation of satellite vegetation map reporting through the "geo-wiki.org" portal. They can also use their smartphone to improve situation awareness after a disaster by contributing with geolocated pics or sharing testimonies. A new field has also emerged aiming at obtaining insight from Internet-based information that is originally intended for other purposes. For example, social network harvesting during incident falls in this category.

Recognizing the growing importance of Citizen Science as a new paradigm in research, and the fantastic and unique opportunity to tap into the enormous passion and good will of a wide community of citizens, this session will provide an overview of various citizen science activities, highlighting their scientific & societal value, strengths and weaknesses across communities. It will also cover communication aspects: how to attract and engage with the Citizens, what does it change in communicating with the public, what are the other potential benefits such as crowdfunding or how such projects can end-up in innovative educational and communication tools by bringing science closer to society.

Effective Corporate Communication: Listen, Engage, Respond, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Media convergence has eroded the formerly clear distinctions between newspapers, radio, TV and social media. But this has not rendered redundant the traditional crafts and techniques of communication. On the contrary, modern contexts have given them a new lease of life. Writing, storytelling and engaging and motivating colleagues are skills as vital as they ever were. But now their power is reinforced by the emotional impact of video and audio and the speed and intimacy of social media. This two-day Corporate Communications workshop is a must for every professional whose remit involves the promotion of understanding, in normal times or in a crisis, inside or outside the organisation.

Rotating Equipment Reliability Masterclass, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Course objectives include:

  • Reliability is the reasonable assurance that facilities or equipment will continue to operate for a specified life cycle at designed performance conditions.
  • Almost 40 percent equipment failures in a petroleum plant are caused by rotating equipment making it the largest contributor to the loss in plant reliability. Therefore, improving equipment reliability becomes the most important ingredient in improving reliability of a plant.
  • Consideration of improvement in equipment can begin even before equipment is purchased. Reliability consideration must be maintained through the start up and post start up phases of equipment handling.
  • A large safety factor does not necessarily result in high reliability. Equipment should be designed to high reliability so that it delivers its intended function with a high probability of success over its intended life span.

How to Comply With CMS's Two-Midnight Rule: Tackling the Operational Challenges - Webinar, USA

Under CMS's "two-midnight rule", finalized as part of the 2014 IPPS rule, hospitals can generally count on inpatient payments for patients who are in the hospital over two midnights. Sounds simple, right? Not so fast.

This simple solution has generated seemingly never-ending waves of CMS guidance and clarification and three delays in the start-up, the latest of which extends the effective date until October 1. But during this calm before the storm, MACs are continuing their Probe and Educate reviews - in fact, CMS is telling them to re-review already completed audits in order to apply the agency's most recent guidance - and their findings will provide new insight to CMS and, no doubt. new rounds of guidance.

When you join, you'll hear two experts with hands-on experience discuss what the MACs are finding and what hospitals are doing to comply with CMS's ever-changing guidance.

Public Exchanges: Translating Lessons Learned Into Insurer Strategies for 2015 - Virtual Conference, USA

2013 was an unfortunate learning experience for every link in the health chain - from provider to insurer to purchaser to (potential) enrollee - as HealthCare.gov - and many state platforms - sputtered miserably and the launch of the Affordable Care Act disappointed the entire nation. Health insurers, especially, were the target of unprecedented demands from Washington as repeated policy changes were issued to iron out glitches in the ACA and its flawed websites.

With the worst behind them, health insurance executives and their advisers are busily translating the lessons of 2014 into strategies their plans can pursue in what promises to be a more efficient public exchange marketplace in 2015.

Join for AIS's second annual virtual conference on public health insurance exchanges.

Insects to Feed the World Conference, Ede, The Netherlands

FAO estimates that the world needs to increase its food production by 70 percent by 2050 in order to serve a global population of nine billion. Animal feed production is increasingly competing for resources - land, water and fertilizer - with human food and fuel production, urbanization and nature. Seventy percent of the world's agricultural land is already directly or indirectly dedicated to meat production. With a growing world population and increasingly demanding consumers, can we still produce sufficient animal protein in the future? Urgently we need to identify alternative protein sources, and insects have great potential in contributing to global food security.

The modern research enterprise is a complex and decentralized ecosystem. Yet, increasingly institutional managers want robust data on the efficiency and effectiveness of their operations and evidence of the difference their interventions make. Researchers seek means to adhere to requirements without undue administrative burden. Information and data are fundamental to research management, yet currently available information can rarely be compared, exchanged (in a comparable format), reused or analysed. Research teams and administrative personnel, for example, must re-type the same information repeatedly when applying for funding or reporting. Research funders, policymakers, managers and evaluators are consistently frustrated by an inability to draw meaningful conclusions from a growing mountain of 'disconnected' data.

CASRAI ReConnect conferences are fast becoming the pre-eminent annual event for data-centric research management. They are an opportunity for research management experts to share, network and learn with others who are tackling the same issues.

2nd International Workshop on Optimisation techniques for Resources Management in Clouds - ORMaCloud, Vancouver, Canada

The Cloud Computing paradigm is gaining an increasing degree of popularity and interest both in the industrial and in the scientific community, allowing customers to outsource the management of physical resources, and to rent a variable amount of resources according to their actual needs, in a pay-per-use fashion. In order to hide to customers the details of physical resources and to provide a flexible and efficient environment to users, Cloud Resource Management (acronym CloudRM) targets a multitude of constraints and objectives, with the burden of optimising physical resource usage to ensure feasible business model placed entirely on Cloud providers.

Due to the typical scale of Cloud systems, these goals are achieved mainly by infrastructures characterised by a high degree of automation. Such infrastructures allow resource provisioning and dynamic management of compute, storage and network resources. The ORMaCloud workshop will focus on management and optimisation issues related to dependability, scalability, economicity and performance at each level of Cloud computing infrastructures, but also on green computing concerns, i.e. issues related with energy efficiency and carbon footprint limitation. The workshop aims at providing a venue for investigating and discussing these issues and state of the art techniques to solve them from a number of different viewpoints.

The topics of interest for the workshop include but are not limited to:

  • Optimisation Algorithms for CloudRM in Clouds, Cloud Brokers and Cloud Federations
  • CloudRM solutions targeting specific classes of applications including Scientific, Real-time, 24/7, and Big Data Applications
  • Design of energy efficient Cloud IaaS software stacks and middlewares
  • Design of QoS aware Cloud IaaS software stacks and middlewares
  • Computing models for PaaS in Clouds allowing advanced CloudRM: QoS-, Green- and Security-aware
  • Abstractions for new types of resource: CloudRM of multicore CPUs and GPUs
  • Autonomic approaches to CloudRM

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.

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.

Climate and climate change information can be extremely useful to health planners, as it can help them to understand current distributions of some diseases, notably those involving a biological vector, and anticipate future outbreaks. An understanding of links between climate, societal changes and health can also help in modelling the health impacts of climate change. With this in mind, the sessions and presentations at the Climate Change and Vector Borne Diseases: Past, Present and Futures conference will be organised within three sub-themes: Environmental changes and vector-borne diseases; Statistical and dynamical disease modelling; Climate change related risk analysis and vulnerability assessment; and Adaptation to climate change related health impacts.
