Fourteenth IEEE International EDOC Conference (IEEE EDOC 2010)
"The Enterprise Computing Conference"
Sponsored by IEEE Computer Society (approval pending) and IEEE Communications Society (approval pending)
Supported by OMG and The Open Group

25-29 October 2010, Vitória, ES, Brazil



The IEEE EDOC Conference is the key annual event in enterprise computing. EDOC conferences address the full range of engineering technologies and methods contributing to intra- and inter-enterprise distributed application systems. EDOC 2010 will be the fourteenth event in the series of conferences. Since 1997, EDOC has brought together leading computer science researchers, IT decision makers, IT architects, solution designers and practitioners to discuss enterprise computing challenges, models and solutions from the perspectives of academia, industry and government.

Enterprise computing is based on a wide (and ever growing) range of methods, models, tools and technologies. The resulting applications also cover a broad spectrum of vertical domains and industry segments, from electronic and mobile commerce to real-time business applications for collaborating enterprises. In recent years, technologies related to business processes integration, management, execution and monitoring have become some of the top areas of interest in enterprise computing. Today, the creation, operation and evolution of enterprise computing systems create challenges that range from high-level requirements and policy modeling to the deployment and maintenance of solutions in and across customer businesses.

The IEEE EDOC Conference emphasizes a holistic view on enterprise applications engineering and management, fostering integrated approaches that can address and relate processes, people and technology. The themes of openness and distributed computing, based on services, components and objects, provide a useful and unifying conceptual framework.

IEEE EDOC 2010 welcomes high quality scientific submissions as well as papers on enterprise computing industry experiences. Expert panel discussions and keynotes will address hot topics and issues in the domain.

IEEE EDOC 2010 will be realized in Vitória, ES, Brazil. Vitória is one of the three island capitals of Brazilian states, and is located in the Southeastern region, the most developed of Brazil. The city lies between the Atlantic Ocean and the Serra do Mar mountain range and is strategically located close to the big urban centres of the country and is, on average, an hour by plane from Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.

8th International Workshop on Algorithms, Models and Tools for Parallel Computing on Heterogeneous Platforms

miércoles, 28 de abril de 2010


8th International Workshop on Algorithms, Models and Tools
for Parallel Computing on Heterogeneous Platforms


August 30, 2010, Ischia-Naples, Italy
in conjunction with EuroPar 2010

* Submission of manuscripts: Friday, May 21, 2010
* Notification of acceptance: Friday, July 2, 2010
* Deadline for final version: Friday, July 30, 2010
* Date of workshop: Monday, August 30, 2010

Networks of computers are the most common and available parallel architecture now. Unlike dedicated parallel computer systems, networks are inherently heterogeneous. They consist of diverse computers of different performances interconnected via heterogeneous network equipment providing communication links with different latencies and bandwidths. Traditional parallel algorithms and tools are aimed at homogeneous multiprocessors and cannot be efficiently used for parallel computing on heterogeneous networks. New ideas, dedicated algorithms and tools are needed to efficiently use this new type of parallel architectures. The workshop is intended to be a forum for people working on algorithms, programming languages, tools, and theoretical models aimed at efficient problem solutions on heterogeneous networks.

Authors are encouraged to submit original, unpublished research or overviews on Algorithms, Models and Tools for Parallel Computing on Heterogeneous Platforms. Manuscripts should be limited to 10 pages in Springer LNCS style sheet and submitted through the EasyChair Conference System: Accepted papers that are presented at the workshop will be published in revised form in a special Euro-Par Workshop Volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series after the Euro-Par conference.

The topics to be covered include but are not limited to:

* Heterogeneous parallel programming paradigms and models;

* Languages, libraries, and interfaces for different heterogeneous parallel programming models;

* Performance models and their integration into the design of efficient parallel algorithms for heterogeneous platforms;

* Parallel algorithms for heterogeneous and/or hierarchical multi-core systems;

* Parallel algorithms for efficient problem solving on heterogeneous platforms (numerical linear algebra, nonlinear systems, fast transforms, computational biology, data mining, multimedia, etc.);

* Software engineering for heterogeneous parallel systems;

* Applications on heterogeneous platforms;

* Integration of parallel and distributed computing on heterogeneous platforms;

* Experience of porting parallel software from supercomputers to heterogeneous platforms;

* Fault tolerance of parallel computations on heterogeneous platforms;

* Algorithms, models and tools for grid, desktop grid, cloud, and green computing.

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

jueves, 18 de marzo de 2010

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.
Tools in the fields mentioned above
