The 11th IEEE International Conference on Information Reuse and Integration (IEEE IRI-2010)

Tuscany Suites & Casino, Las Vegas, USA
August 4-6, 2010

The increasing volumes and dimensions of information have dramatic
impact on effective decision-making. To remedy this situation,
Information Reuse and Integration (IRI) seeks to maximize the reuse
of information by creating simple, rich, and reusable knowledge
representations and consequently explores strategies for integrating
this knowledge into legacy systems. IRI plays a pivotal role in the
capture, representation, maintenance, integration, validation, and
extrapolation of information; and applies both information and
knowledge for enhancing decision-making in various application
domains. This conference explores three major tracks: information
reuse, information integration, and reusable systems. Information
reuse considers optimizing representation methodologies; information
integration studies strategies for creatively applying models in
novel domains; and reusable systems focus on ontological
opportunities for deploying models and corresponding processes.

The IEEE IRI conference serves as a forum for researchers and
practitioners from academia, industry, and government to present,
discuss, and exchange ideas that address real-world problems with
real-world solutions. The conference feature contributed and
invited papers. Theoretical and applied papers are both included.
The conference program will include special sessions, open forum
workshops, and keynote speeches. A forum will be conducted with
the intent of bridging IRI and Systems of Systems and why the future
of intelligent computing - including computing applications - will
lie at the juxtaposition of these two topical areas.

a satellite event of

Petri Nets 2010
31st International Conference on Application and Theory of
Petri Nets and Other Models of Concurrency


Contact e-mail:

Important Dates:

Abstracts should be submitted now(!) to get us informed;-)
Deadline for full papers: April 1st, 2010
Deadline for short papers: April 1st, 2010
Notification of paper acceptance: April 30th, 2010
Deadline for posters: May 4th, 2010
Notification of poster acceptance: May 18th, 2010
Deadline for final revisions: May 22nd, 2010
Workshop: June 21st or 22nd, 2010



Some of the best papers from the workshop will be invited for
publication in a volume of the journal sub line of Lecture Notes
in Computer Science entitled "Transactions on Petri Nets and
Other Models of Concurrency" (ToPNoC). The papers are expected to
be thoroughly revised and they will go through a totally new
round of reviewing as is standard practice for journal papers.

Papers from previous instances of this workshop (PNSE'07, PNDS'08
and PNSE'09) made it into ToPNoC volumes in the Springer LNCS
series (volumes 5100, 5460 and 5800). See:


For the successful realisation of complex systems of interacting
and reactive software and hardware components the use of a
precise language at different stages of the development process
is of crucial importance. Petri nets are becoming increasingly
popular in this area, as they provide a uniform language
supporting the tasks of modelling, validation, and
verification. Their popularity is due to the fact that Petri nets
capture fundamental aspects of causality, concurrency and choice
in a natural and mathematically precise way without compromising

The workshop PNSE'10 (Petri nets and Software Engineering) will
take place as a satellite event of Petri Nets 2010.

The use of Petri nets (P/T-nets, coloured Petri nets and
extensions) in the formal process of software engineering,
covering modelling, validation, and verification, will be
presented as well as their application and tools supporting the
disciplines mentioned above.


We welcome contributions describing original research in topics
related to Petri nets in combination with software engineering,
addressing open problems or presenting new ideas regarding the
relation of Petri nets and software engineering. Furthermore we
look for surveys addressing open problems and new applications of
Petri nets. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

+ representation of formal models by intuitive modelling
+ guidelines for the construction of system models
+ representative examples
+ state-oriented, event-oriented, object-oriented, and
agent-oriented approaches
+ adaption, integration, and enhancement of concepts from
other disciplines
+ views and abstractions of systems
+ model-driven architecture
+ modelling software landscapes
+ web service-based software development
Validation and Execution
+ prototyping
+ simulation, observation, animation
+ code generation and execution
+ testing and debugging
+ efficient implementation
+ structural methods (e.g. place invariants, reduction
+ results for structural subclasses of nets
+ relations between structure and behaviour
+ state space based approaches
+ efficient model checking
+ assertional and deductive methods (e.g. temporal logics)
+ process algebraic methods
+ applications of category theory and linear logic
Application of Petri nets in Software Engineering, in particular
the use of Petri nets in the domains of
+ flexible manufacturing,
+ logistics,
+ telecommunication, and
+ workflow management.

Middleware 2010

lunes, 15 de marzo de 2010

Middleware 2010
ACM/IFIP/USENIX 11th International Middleware Conference

November 29 - December 3, 2010, Bangalore, India

The Middleware conference is a forum for the discussion of important
innovations and recent advances in the design, implementation, deployment,
and usage of middleware. Middleware is a distributed-systems software that
resides between a rich variety of applications on the one hand, and the
underlying architecture on the other hand which may consist of the OS,
hardware, and network stacks or even databases, storage and different cloud
services. The goals of middleware include providing abstractions,
programmability, performance, scalability, security, and a variety of
essential features. This is a rapidly evolving and growing field.

Following the success of past conferences in this series, the 11th
International Middleware Conference will be the premier event for middleware
research and technology in 2010. The scope of the conference is the design,
implementation, deployment, and evaluation of distributed system platforms
and architectures for current and future computing, storage, and
communication environments. Highlights of the conference will include a high
quality technical program, invited speakers, an industrial track, poster and
demo presentations, a doctoral symposium, and workshops.

Submissions on a diversity of topics are sought, particularly those
identifying new research directions. The topics of the conference include,
but are not limited to:
Middleware platforms:
* Middleware for emerging cloud computing, datacenters, and server farms
* Middleware for traditional clusters and Grid computing
* Middleware for data-intensive computing
* Middleware for mobile devices, ubiquitous and mobile computing
* Middleware for sensor and embedded systems
* Middleware for Web services and Web-service composition
* Event-based, publish/subscribe, and message-oriented middleware
* Middleware for system management and monitoring
* Middleware for next generation telecommunication platforms
* Internet-based communication protocols and data transfer middleware
* Middleware support for multimedia and tele-immersion
* Middleware supporting service-oriented architectures
* Reconfigurable, adaptable, and reflective middleware approaches
* Semantic middleware
* Middleware solutions for distributed databases
* Peer-to-peer middleware solutions
* Novel middleware solutions for industry frameworks
Systems issues for Middleware:
* Reliability and fault-tolerance
* Scalability and performance
* Energy- and power-aware techniques
* Virtualization, auto-scaling, provisioning, and scheduling
* Security and Information assurance
* Storage and file systems
* Parallelized execution and techniques
* Dynamic configuration and self- or autonomic- management of middleware
* Real-time solutions and quality of service
* Evaluation and deployment: challenges, techniques and lessons
Design principles and tools:
* Programming frameworks, parallel programming and design methodologies for
* Empirical and deployment studies for middleware solutions
* Debugging and distributed debugging of middleware
* Probabilistic Techniques and approaches for middleware
* Methodologies and tools for middleware design, implementation,
verification, and evaluation
* Formal methods, verification and software engineering for middleware
* Old Wine: Revisiting classical middleware paradigms, e.g., object models,
aspect orientation, etc.
Industry Papers
The conference strongly encourages submission of industry-focused papers and
use case studies; full papers should be submitted to the main program, where
they will be reviewed using appropriate criteria (e.g. emphasizing
experience and system evolution), and accepted papers will be published in
the main conference proceedings. Additionally, short industry-focused papers
(10 pages, Springer LNCS style) may be submitted to a special industrial
track; accepted short papers will be presented at the conference and
published in the ACM Digital Library. Note that submissions to the main
program may indicate a willingness to be referred to the Industrial Track if
a paper is not accepted to the main program.

Big Ideas Papers
This year, we particularly encourage "big ideas papers"; that is papers that
have the potential for opening up new research directions. For such papers,
the potential to motivate new research is more important than full
experimental evaluation, though some preliminary evidence of the
effectiveness of the approach or idea is important. Authors should indicate
in the introduction that their paper is a vision of a big idea, rather than
more mature work. Such papers should clearly indicate why the idea is
revolutionary and not evolutionary; what the major questions still to be
answered are; and possible avenues of attack for the community to pursue
towards the development of the idea.
Submission Guidelines
Submissions will be handled via the conference web page at

ISMIR 2010 - 11th International Society for Music Information Retrieval Conference

miércoles, 3 de marzo de 2010

ISMIR 2010 - 11th International Society for Music Information Retrieval Conference
9-13 August 2010, Utrecht University, The Netherlands

Submission Deadline: Wednesday, 24 March 2010


The 11th International Conference on Music Information Retrieval, ISMIR 2010, will be held at the Utrecht University, The Netherlands, from Monday, August 9 to Friday, August 13 2010.

The annual ISMIR Conference is the premier international forum for those working on organizing and accessing digital musical material. The ISMIR conferences reflect the tremendous recent growth of available music-related data and the consequent need to search within it to retrieve music and musical information efficiently and effectively. Music Information Retrieval (MIR) concerns are of interest to academia, industry, entertainment, and education. ISMIR therefore aims to provide a place for the exchange and discussion of MIR issues, developments and results, by bringing together researchers and developers, educators and librarians, students and professional users, working in fields that contribute to MIR's multidisciplinary domain. It is increasingly realised in the MIR community that music only becomes music by its processing by the human mind, and that studying the human processing of music is a key issue in innovative MIR research. Therefore, papers on musical cognition and perception that contribute to the human understanding and experience of music are especially welcomed.

*New Special Paper Category*

New this year, ISMIR 2010 is soliciting a special category of papers: State-of-the-Art Reports (STARs). Unlike regular papers which should focus in detail on specific aspects of MIR research, STAR papers will provide a state-of-the-art overview of a broader MIR problem area. Only a few STAR papers will be selected. A STAR paper will be presented in an oral presentation.


ISMIR solicits contributions to the field of music information retrieval (MIR), including, but not limited to, the following topics as they relate to MIR and beyond:

music perception and cognition
musical knowledge and meaning
content-based querying and retrieval
automatic classification
music recommendation and playlist generation
fingerprinting and digital rights management
score following, audio alignment, and music synchronization
transcription and annotation
music summarisation
music structure analysis
optical music recognition
music signal processing
libraries, archives and digital collections
database systems, indexing and query languages
text and web mining
compression and streaming
modification and transformation of music data
evaluation of MIR systems
knowledge representation, social tags, and metadata
melody and motives
harmony, chords and tonality
rhythm, beat, tempo and form
timbre, instrumentation and voice
genre, style and mood
performance analysis
similarity metrics
computational musicology
user interfaces and user models
emotion and aesthetics
applications of MIR to the performing arts and multimedia
social, legal, ethical and business issues
methodological issues and philosophical foundations

*Paper submission*

* Formatting submission instructions will be made available at
* Submission instructions for regular papers will be made available at, while STAR papers should be emailed to
* Submission must consist of original contributions (not previously published and not currently being considered for publication elsewhere).
* Submitted papers must be no longer than 6 pages long, STARs no longer than 12 pages.
* All papers will be peer-reviewed according to their quality in terms of novelty, technical content, and presentation.
* The reviewing process of regular papers will be double blind: the reviewers remain hidden to the authors, and the authors must remain hidden to the reviewers.
* All accepted regular papers can be presented as a poster.
* From the accepted papers, a selection will be chosen for oral presentations as well.
* Authors of accepted papers will be asked to provide camera-ready copies of their papers for inclusion in the proceedings.
* For each accepted paper, at least one author must register for the ISMIR 2010 conference prior to submission of the camera-ready version.

We will seek opportunities to publish selected papers in one or more suitable journal special issues.

*Call for tutorials*

It is the goal of the ISMIR 2010 Tutorial Program to offer conference attendees and local participants a stimulating and informative selection of introductory or in-depth tutorials reflecting current topics in MIR. These tutorials will be presented by subject matter experts and will reflect the high academic and research standards of the ISMIR 2010 conference. We encourage submissions of tutorial proposals on all topics in the general areas of music information retrieval, especially tutorials bridging these areas, or presenting new perspectives in these areas. However, tutorials on musical cognition and perception that contribute to the human understanding and experience of music, or that make creative use of MIR research, will receive particular attention.

Tutorials will be held Monday, August 9, 2010 (the day preceding the main conference). Tutorial day will consist of parallel sessions of half-day tutorials each concentrating on a single topic and lasting approximately 3 hours, including a break.

Tutorial proposals should be emailed to as PDF files containing a 1-2 page abstract including:
* an outline of the tutorial content,
* the intended and expected audience,
* short biography of the presenter(s),
* whether the tutorial has been give before or elsewhere, and
* any special requirements.
Presenters are strongly encouraged to include aural music examples in their tutorial presentations (preferably using copyright-free or copyright-cleared examples). Tutorial presenters are expected to create substantial supporting materials for distribution to participants.

*Important Dates*
* Submission deadline (regular papers, STARS, tutorials): March 24, 2010
* Notification of Acceptance: May 12, 2010
