IV e-Science Workshop

IV e-Science Workshop

(in conjunction with CSBC 2010)
Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil
July 2010


Deadline for submissions (full papers and posters): March 8th, 2010
Notification of acceptance: April 19th, 2010
Camera ready due: May 17th, 2010


Over the past decades, we have seen a revolution in the way science
and engineering has been conducted. Specially, computation became an
established third brand of science alongside theory and experiment.
Scientists now need to access and exploit computational resources and
databases that are geographically distributed through the use of high
speed networks. Those resources must be modeled and managed in a
similar way we model software development and data through software
engineering processes and database techniques. In order to attack the
next generation of scientific problems, multidisciplinary and
distributed teams of scientists need to collaborate to make progress
on these new challenges.

Current advances in Software Engineering and Database research,
including ontologies, scientific process/workflow modeling, semantic
web services, software component management, grid computing, resource
modeling, process and data provenance, data curation, among others can
help to address these challenges. Several national and international
projects around the world have been initiated to carry out research
and innovation activities that will transform the goal of e-Science
and Grid computing into a reality.

The IV e-Science workshop aims at bringing together recent
developments in databases and software engineering towards a
computerized infrastructure to accomplish science in the large,
supporting the next generation of scientific research and experiments.
The definition, execution and management of scientific experiments can
no longer be developed in an ad-hoc manner. The topic of e-science or
cyberinfrastructure is part of the “Grand Challenges in Computer
Science Research in Brazil – 2006 – 2016” report from the Brazilian
Computer Society.

This workshop serves as a forum to present, discuss and establish new
partnership among scientists that participate in research and
product/tool developments, and highlights related activities from the
Brazilian and international community. The first three versions of the
event were co-located with SBBD/SBES, and showed that there is an
interesting audience on the theme. New projects are taking place,
based on partnerships on the database and software engineering area.
In this forth edition, we would like to extend the possible fields of
collaborations to other areas of Computer Science that have much to
contribute to e-Science.


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

- e-Science and Grid applications
- e-Science workflow management
- Ontologies and databases for e-Science
- Data and process provenance
- Collaborative Science Models and Techniques
- Data Access Management
- Virtual e-Science Organizations
- Service-Oriented Grid Architectures
- Grid economy and Business Models
- Autonomic, Real-Time and Self-Organizing Grids
- Web semantics for e-Science
- Enabling Technologies for e-Science: Internet and Web Services
- e-Science Experimentation Environments
- Experimentation processes for science in large scale
- Scientific Knowledge Management applied to science in large scale
- Arts, Humanities and e-Social Science
- Bioinformatics and Health
- Physical Sciences and Engineering
- Climate & Earth Sciences


The workshop will accept submissions of technical papers and posters
written in either English or Portuguese. Technical papers must not
exceed 8 pages, and posters must not exceed 4 pages. Papers and
posters should be formatted according to the Brazilian Computer
Society paper format. All papers and posters must be submitted using
the JEMS conference system.

The technical papers and posters will be reviewed according to the
following criteria: adequacy to the workshop scope, relevance,
technical quality, clarity, and originality. Technical papers
describing preliminary work and ongoing research are also eligible.
Assessment of results is desirable but not a pre-condition for the
submission of the paper. All technical papers must present related
work. Technical papers and posters will be peer reviewed according to
recommendations of the committee.

Selected technical papers will be orally presented during the workshop
and published on the conference CD. Authors must prepare a poster that
will be presented during the poster section.

Selected posters will be presented during a poster section in the
event and published on the conference CD. Authors should be available
to discuss them with the audience during the poster section.

Background and Goals:
Business process management (BPM) technologies are considered as one of the key success stories in providing process control and monitoring functions, and addressing complex integration requirements in enterprise systems. However, the expectation of what this technology must deliver is a moving target. Whereas the success of coordinative processes depends upon the conformance to the prescribed control flow, the success of the collaborative process depends upon the ability to detect and react to changing conditions. What was true for workflow systems is no longer acceptable in the dynamic and cross organizational requirements for management of collaborative processes. The trend is going towards agile, responsive, and (self-)adaptive business processes which are able to make use of existing context information in order to align to changing business requirements. BPM has become a very extensive area with several specialized aspects. This workshop intends to provide a forum wherein challenges in flexible, context-aware, and collaborative business process management can be debated. We seek papers that present innovative technology solutions to these challenges based on well justified practical
assumptions and sound theoretical foundations.

Submitted papers will be evaluated on the basis of significance, originality, technical quality, and exposition. Papers should clearly establish the research contribution, and relation to previous research. Position and survey papers are also welcome.

Topics of interest:
We particularly solicit approaches to context-aware, agile, responsive, and adaptive business processes. Below we provide a list of relevant topics, however papers outside these topics but within the general scope of the workshop scope will still be considered.
- Context-aware business processes
- Adaptive process management
- Context modeling (e.g., ontologies, rule-based approaches) - Knowledge and task management in (collaborative) processes
- Self-adapting / self-healing business processes
- Technologies for modeling and analysis of (collaborative) processes
- Interactive approaches for end-user engagement and visualization of business processes (can include Web 2.0)
- Event driven process management - Collaboration modeling using game theory and/or social networks (wisdom of crowds) in Business Process Management
- Usability and technology adoption of BPM solutions
- Exception Handling in BPM
- Patterns for context-aware BPM

Format of the Workshop:
The workshop will consist of oral presentations, discussions, and invited talks. The workshop will also provide opportunity for demo sessions, where presenters can showcase advanced prototypes based on their research.
Submission of Papers
All papers must be written in English, and the length of the paper should not exceed 5,000 words or 10 pages (including figures and tables). Instructions for preparing the manuscript (in Word and Latex format) are available at the ICEIS web site.

Analysis and Modeling of Faces and Gestures

IEEE International Workshop on

Analysis and Modeling of Faces and Gestures (AMFG2010), in conjunction with CVPR 2010


IEEE International Workshop on Analysis and Modeling of Faces and Gestures (AMFG2010)

--- Towards Large-Scale Data from Real-World Environments

Website: http://www.lv-nus.org/AMFG2010/

During the last 30 years, human-centered perceptual understanding tasks such as face/body detection/ tracking, facial characteristic analysis (e.g., age, gender, ethnicity, and expression), face/gait based human identification, and from understanding simple hand gesture to complex human body language, activity and behaviour, have attracted researchers from both computational and psychological communities. To be able to build tractable models has significant scientific and practical values. For example, human-computer interaction, video indexing, visual surveillance, and Internet vision are active application areas. To that end, researchers have made substantial progress. However, significant challenges still remain.

This one-day workshop (AMFG2010) will provide a focused international forum to bring together researchers and research groups to review the status of recognition, analysis and modeling of face, gesture, and body, to discuss the challenges that we are facing, and to explore future directions. A particular interest and focus of this workshop will be placed upon large-scale data from real-world environments. The workshop will consist of two to three invited talks together with peer-reviewed regular papers (oral and poster). Original high-quality papers are solicited on a wide range of topics including:

Face and body language recognition in real-world environments with unknown/changing background, e.g., Internet image search, or Facebook, or crowded public spaces.

Soft biometrics and profiling: age, gender, and ethnicity classification by facial and/or body descriptions.

Novel mathematical modelling and algorithms, sensors and modalities for face & body gesture/action representation, analysis and recognition.

Novel applications based on robust detection, tracking and recognition of face, body and action.

Psychological studies that can assist in understanding computational modelling and building better automated computer vision systems.

Motion analysis, tracking and extraction of face and body models from image sequences captured by a single or multiple cameras from either a fixed or mobile platform.

Detection and recognition of face and body under large 3D rotation, illumination change, partial occlusion, and aging.

Face, gait and action recognition in low-quality, low-resolution video from fixed or mobile cameras.

Dynamics and learning for gesture, activity, and body behavior interpretation.

AI Space Odyssey, Special Issue of IEEE Intelligent Systems

AI Space Odyssey, Special Issue of IEEE Intelligent Systems

Submissions due for review: 19 February 2010
Publication date: September/October 2010


IEEE Intelligent Systems seeks original papers describing research on AI in Space. This topic has been the focus of earlier special issues, but this call is interested in a glimpse of the future from our standpoint in 2010, and hence the theme AI Space Odyssey.

In anticipation of long-duration space exploration missions to the Moon and Mars, likely by many nations, we are looking for papers describing how AI has made missions possible and will help make missions a success. Whereas in the 1980s and 1990s, researchers saw AI as a panacea for intelligent autonomous systems, the AI technology used today in space applications is often regarded differently. The editors of this special issue solicit papers that describe new and novel use of AI technology for space applications.

Papers may cover a variety of topics, listed here in no particular order:

* semantics, ontologies, and knowledge representation;
* pattern recognition and scientific discovery;
* Intelligent System-Health Management (ISHM);
* teleoperation and telerobotics;
* planning, scheduling, constraint satisfaction;
* adjustable autonomy;
* agent-based and multiagent systems;
* machine learning;
* procedure-execution monitoring and aiding;
* natural language processing and dialogue systems;
* decision support; and
* history of AI applications in astronautics and space exploration.

In addition, the special issue will consider original papers on innovative, knowledge-based approaches to complex implementation challenges such as

* AI-driven simulations, virtual reality, virtual worlds and games for
engineering, operations, management, training, and so on;
* software engineering, development, and verification and validation
approaches for high-reliability autonomy;
* innovative approaches to security issues in autonomous software
* software life-cycle issues with respect to very long-duration (10+
year) missions;
* decision and workflow support systems for planetary exploration and
extra-vehicular activities;
* AI-driven robotics and approaches for human-robot teamwork;
* Smart sensor systems for situational awareness; and
* ubiquitous computing environments.

Submission Guidelines

Papers should situate the work within the field of AI, cite related work, and indicate the innovative aspects of the work and its direct contribution to the special challenges of space missions. We will not accept any paper that, at the time of submission, is under review for or has already been published or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference. All papers will undergo peer and editorial review. Submissions should present original reports of substantive new work and should be 3,500 to 7,500 words (counting a standard figure or table as 200 words) and should follow the magazines style and presentation guidelines (see www.computer.org/intelligent/author.htm). References should be limited to 10 citations. To submit a manuscript, access the IEEE Computer Society Web-based system, Manuscript Central, at

International Conference on Autonomic and Trusted Computing

miércoles, 17 de febrero de 2010

The 7th International Conference on
Autonomic and Trusted Computing (ATC 2010)
- Bring Safe, Self-x and Organic Computing Systems into Reality -

Technically Sponsored by IEEE CS TCFC
Xi¡¯an, China, 26-29 October, 2010
Co-located with UIC 2010 (http://www.nwpu.edu.cn/uic2010/)

Computing systems including hardware, software, communication, and networks are growing towards an ever increasing scale and heterogeneity, becoming overly complex. Such complexity is getting even more critical with the ubiquitous permeation of embedded devices and other pervasive systems. To cope with the growing and ubiquitous complexity, Autonomic Computing (AC) focuses on self-manageable computing and communication systems that exhibit self-awareness, self-configuration, self-optimization, self-healing, self-protection and other self-x operations to the maximum extent possible without human intervention or guidance. Organic Computing (OC) additionally addresses adaptivity, robustness, and controlled emergence as well as nature-inspired concepts for self-organization.

Any autonomic or organic system must be trustworthy to avoid the risk of losing control and retain confidence that the system will not fail. Trust and/or distrust relationships in the Internet and in pervasive infrastructures are key factors to enable dynamic interaction and cooperation of various users, systems, and services. Trusted/Trustworthy Computing (TC) aims at making computing and communication systems as well as services available, predictable, traceable, controllable, assessable, sustainable, dependable, persistable, security/privacy protectable, etc.

A series of grand challenges exists to achieve practical autonomic or organic systems with truly trustworthy services. Started in 2005, the series of ATC conferences has been held at Nagasaki, Vienna, Three Gorges (China), Hong Kong, Oslo and Brisbane. ATC 2010 will include a highly selective program of technical papers, accompanied by workshops, panel discussions and keynote speeches. Established as a premier venue in the area of autonomic and trusted computing, ATC 2010 will offer a forum for researchers to exchange ideas and experiences in the most innovative research and development in these challenging areas and includes all technical aspects related to autonomic/organic computing (AC/OC) and trusted computing (TC). Topics include but are not limited to the following:

- AC/OC Theory and Models:Models, negotiation, cooperation, competition,self-organization, emergence, verification etc.
- AC/OC Architectures and Systems:Autonomic elements & their relationship, frameworks,middleware, observer/controller architectures, etc.
- AC/OC Components and Modules:Multi-core CPU, memory, storage, database, device,server, proxy, software, OS, I/O, etc.
- AC/OC Communication and Services:Networks, self-organized net, web service, P2P, grid,EaaS, could, semantics, agent, transaction, etc.
- AC/OC Tools and Interfaces:Tools/interfaces for AC/OC system development,test, monitoring, assessment, supervision, etc.
- Trust Models and Specifications:Models and semantics of trust, distrust, mistrust,over-trust, cheat, risk, reputation, reliability, etc.
- Trust-related Security and Privacy:Trust-related secure architecture, framework, policy,intrusion detection/awareness, protocols, etc.
- Trusted Reliable and Dependable Systems: Fault-tolerant systems, hardware redundancy,robustness, survivable systems, failure recovery, etc.
- Trustworthy Services and Applications:Trustworthy Internet/web/P2P/grid/cloud services,secured mobile services, novel applications, etc.
- Trust Standards and Non-Technical Issues: Trust standards and issues related to personality,ethics, sociology, culture, psychology, economy, etc.

International Workshop on Collaborative Modeling and Simulation

IEEE WETICE 2010 1st International Workshop on Collaborative Modeling and Simulation


June 28 - June 30, 2010, Larissa (Greece)



# Papers Due: *** March 2, 2010 ***

# Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings

# by the IEEE Computer Society Press and indexed by EI.


Modeling and Simulation (M&S) is increasingly becoming a central

activity in the design of new systems and in the analysis of

existing systems because it enables designers and researchers to

investigate systems behavior through virtual representations. For

this reason, M&S is gaining a primary role in many industrial and

research fields, such as space, critical infrastructures,

manufacturing, emergency management, biomedical systems and

sustainable future. However, as the complexity of the

investigated systems increases and the types of investigations

widens, the cost of M&S activities increases because of the more

complex models and of the communications among a wider number and

variety of M&S stakeholders (e.g., sub-domain experts, simulator

users, simulator engineers, and final system users). To address

the increasing costs of M&S activities, collaborative

technologies must be introduced to support these activities by

fostering the sharing and reuse of models, by facilitating the

communications among M&S stakeholders, and more generally by

integrating processes, tools and platforms.

Aside from seeking applications of collaborative technologies to

M&S activities, the workshop seeks innovative contributions that

deal with the application of M&S practices to the design of

collaborative environments. These environments are continuously

becoming more complex and therefore their design requires

systematic approaches to meet the required quality of

collaboration. This is important for two reasons: to reduce

rework activities on the actual collaborative environment, and to

maximize the productivity and the quality of the process the

collaborative environment supports. M&S offers the methodologies

and tools for such investigations and therefore it can be used to

improve the quality of collaborative environments.

A non-exhaustive list of hi-level topics includes:

* collaborative environments for M&S

* agent-based M&S

* collaborative distributed simulation

* net-centric M&S

* web-based M&S

* model sharing and reuse

* model building and evaluation

* modeling and simulation of business processes

* modeling for collaboration

* simulation-based performance evaluation of collaborative


* model-driven simulation engineering

* domain specific languages for the simulation of collaborative


* domain specific languages for collaborative M&S

To stimulate creativity, however, the workshop maintains a wider

scope and invites interested researchers to present contributions
