[DMANET] PhD position in Operational Research applied to logistics, Le Havre, France

NOTE : second call for PhD candidates, be careful to the short delay.


The LITIS laboratory of le Havre university offers a financed PhD
position in logistics starting in october 2015. The candidate should
possess (or terminate) a master in computer sciences, with skills in OR
and/or AI.

See below the description of the subject.

Application files should be sent by e-mail to the three supervisors,
Stefan Balev, Antoine Dutot, an Eric Sanlaville (see email addresses in
this mail header). They should contain: CV, marks from last two years,
motivation letter, possibly recommendation letters. The file can be
entirely in English.

The application files should be sent before Sunday, july 5th.

*Operational management of flows along a logistics corridor: application
to the Seine valley**
Supervisors:*Stefan Balev, Antoine Dutot, Eric Sanlaville (LITIS, Le
Havre University)*
Funding:*3 year grant, Le Havre University *
Keywords:*Decision making support, Artificial intelligence, Operational
Research, Logistics, Optimization under uncertainties

*Description:*Given data on transportation infrastructure of a
multi-modal logistic corridor (different supply chains, storage and
transport capacities, etc.) the goal is to check the feasibility of a
transportation plan for a given period of time, taking into account the
uncertainties of the travel time and the hazardsinherent to these
infrastructures (breakdowns, accidents and litigations). In case of
infeasibility, alternative transportation plans willbe computed, either
with better feasibility guarantee or with better cost.

This goal requires the use of a detailed multi-scale model of the
logistic corridor containing the different infrastructures and their
capacities, as well as data on the flows, their sources and
destinations. It also requires to work on planification tools at the
tactical level. The main challenge consists in proposing a tool of
operational management from collected data, able to modify the original
plan to adapt it to new conditions. This tool shall be based on robust
optimization, the study of dynamic systems and the techniques form
collective intelligence (specially the multi agent systems) developed
within the RI2C team of LITIS.

*Environment:*The student will benefit from the knowledge gained during
previous research projects on flow management and optimization in
logistics systems, and in particular two theses in progress: one on
spatial agent-based modeling of logistics stakeholders and another one
on flow optimization in extended seaport. The first thesis uses the
agent-based modeling tool Gama and the second one uses combinatorial
optimization tools such as CPLEX.

The thesis is part of the multi-disciplinary and multi-institutional
project CLASSE (Logistic corridors: application to the Seine valley and
its environment) funded by Haute Normandie region, France and Europe.

The RI2C (Interaction networks and swarm intelligence) team of LITIS
focuses its fundamental researcheson morpho-dynamics of interaction
networks using analysis and optimization methods from artificial
intelligence and operations research domains. An important feature of
complex systems is the large share of uncertainty in the models,
resulting in the need of robust solutions or policies to control these
systems. The main applications of this research are in domains such as
territorial intelligence, industrial risk management, ad-hoc
communication networks and logistics, in particular the analysis of
logistic networks along a logistic corridor such as the Seine axis.

*Skills and profile:*The candidate must have a degree (M. Sc., M. Eng.
or equivalent) in computer science with decision making support related
specialization. In addition to programming skills acquired in such a
curriculum, expertise on concepts and techniques is required in one of
the following domains: artificial intelligence and particularly
multi-agent systems or operations research (combinatorial optimization,
robust optimization). Knowledge in both areas (AI and OR) will be
privileged. Previous experience in GIS would be beneficial.

[DMANET] PhD Position: Maintenance Optimization for Rail Infrastructure Systems

The School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of
Newcastle is offering an Australian Postgraduate Award (Industry)
scholarship worth AU$25,849 per annum. The scholarship will be funded
under an Australia Research Council (ARC) Linkage Grant, and is
collaborative with Martin Savelsbergh and Natashia Boland from Georgia
Institute of Technology's ISyE School, and with Aurizon, Australia's
largest rail freight operator.

Coal and iron ore export supply chains critically depend on the
transport capacity provided by Australia's rail infrastructure.
Increasingly so, because coal and iron ore export supply chains are
literally getting longer: mineral bodies closer to ports have been
exploited first, and as these become exhausted, supply chains are
stretching further to reach harder-to-get-at resources. Combined with
increasing export volumes, this makes intelligent, efficient, and
effective management of this critical piece of infrastructure vitally
important. Maintenance plays a crucial role in the management of rail
infrastructure as it ensures that infrastructure components, e.g.,
track, signals, and rail crossings, are in a condition that allows
safe, reliable, and efficient transport. This project will investigate
the key planning activities in preventive maintenance of rail
infrastructure systems, and seek to develop effective optimization
algorithms for their solution.

This PhD will contribute to a larger team activity, addressing the
whole system; the successful candidate will join a team of several
other researchers working on complementary aspects of the system.

Expressions of interest are preferred before August 1, 2015, however
later interest will be considered until the position is filled. To
express your interest in a scholarship please send your CV, together
with an academic transcript showing details of all courses you have
taken, the grades you were awarded, an interpretation of those grades,
and the names and contact details of at least two persons who can
provide confidential references, to the contact person at the address
shown below. If your transcript is not in English, please provide an
English translation.

This project will be supervised by Dr Thomas Kalinowski.

[DMANET] Call for papers: International Workshop on Hardware Accelerated Data Mining

Dear All,

We are organizing the International Workshop on Hardware Accelerated Data
Mining, in conjunction with ICDM 2015. IEEE International Conference on
Data Mining (ICDM) is one of the world's premier research conference in
data mining. You can find more details about the workshop here.
http://volga.usc.edu/hadm/

I am including the CFP.

==================================================
Call for papers:
International Workshop on Hardware Accelerated Data Mining (HADM'15) to be
held with IEEE International Conference on Data Mining
14 November 2015, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA.
Website: http://www.usc.edu/hadm
==================================================

Data mining is expected to work on increasingly complex workloads (e.g.,
Petabytes of networked-data under real-time constraints) using emerging
hardware accelerators (e.g., commodity and specialized Multi-core, GPUs,
FPGAs, and ASICs) and corresponding programming models (e.g., MapReduce,
GraphLab, CUDA, OpenCL, and OpenACC). The use of hardware accelerators for
mining high-rate data streams is becoming common mainly due to the rapidly
increasing amount of data available for real-time analytics. The idea of
using special-purpose hardware to accelerate computation has a long
tradition in data processing but has thus far not made its way into
mainstream data mining. Many essential issues in this area have yet to be
explored. For instance, large-scale graph computations are commonplace in
many fields. However, this graph data is sparse and highly non-uniform.
Graph structure mining algorithms exhibit weak spatial locality when
processing graphs with power law distributions and such algorithms are
data-intensive and cache-hostile.

The aim of this workshop is to provide a venue for designers,
practitioners, researchers, developers, and industrial/governmental
partners to come together, present and discuss leading research results,
use cases, innovative ideas, challenges, and opportunities that arise from
accelerating mining of big data using new hardware, and identify future
directions and challenges in this area.

Borja Sanz (co-chair)
Florentina Lilica Voicu

REGISTRATION:

The registration form can be found at:

http://grammars.grlmc.com/InfoSec2015/registration.php

The selection of up to 8 courses requested in the registration template is
only tentative and non-binding. For the sake of organization, it will be
helpful to have an approximation of the respective demand for each course.

Since the capacity of the venue is limited, registration requests will be
processed on a first come first served basis. The registration period will
be closed and the on-line registration facility disabled when the capacity
of the venue will be complete. It is much recommended to register prior to
the event.

FEES:

Fees are a flat rate covering the attendance to all courses during the week.
There are several early registration deadlines. Fees depend on the
registration deadline.

ACCOMMODATION:

Accommodation for participants is available at the Colegio Mayor Deusto
(student hostel). Since there may exist problems to find accommodation in
Bilbao at a reasonable price during the week of the event, the organizers'
advice is to book as soon as possible, and anyway by May 27. To do it, write
to Carlson Wagonlit Travel at estudiantesud@carlsonwagonlit.es

CERTIFICATE:

Participants will be delivered a certificate of attendance.

ABOUT GraMSec

Graphical security models provide an intuitive but systematic
methodology to analyze security weaknesses of systems and to evaluate
potential protection measures. Such models have been subject of
academic research and they have also been widely accepted by the
industrial sector, as a means to support and facilitate threat
analysis and risk management processes. The objective of GraMSec is to
contribute to the development of well-founded graphical security
models, efficient algorithms for their analysis, as well as
methodologies for their practical usage.

* Camera Ready Version: September 5, 2015

========================================================================

Scope: Organizations are increasingly concerned about the privacy of
information that they manage (several people have filed lawsuits
against organizations violating the privacy of customer's data). Thus,
the management of privacy-sensitive information is very critical and
important for every organization. This poses several challenging
problems, such as how to translate the high-level business goals into
system-level privacy policies, administration of privacy-sensitive
data, privacy data integration and engineering, privacy access control
mechanisms, information-oriented security, and query execution on
privacy-sensitive data for partial answers.

Topics: The aim of this workshop is to discuss and exchange the ideas
related to privacy data management. We invite papers from researchers
and practitioners working in privacy, security, trustworthy data
systems and related areas to submit their original papers in this
workshop. The main topics, but not limited to, include:

* Privacy Information Management
* Privacy Policy-based Infrastructures and Architectures
* Privacy-oriented Access Control Languages and Models
* Privacy in Trust Management
* Privacy in Digital Currencies
* Privacy Data Integration
* Privacy Risk Assessment and Assurance
* Privacy Services
* Cryptography and Cryptanalysis
* Privacy Policy Analysis
* Query Execution over Privacy Sensitive Data
* Privacy Preserving Data Mining
* Hippocratic and Water-marking Databases
* Privacy for Integrity-based Computing
* Privacy Monitoring and Auditing
* Privacy in Social Networks
* Privacy in Ambient Intelligence (AmI) Applications
* Individual Privacy vs. Corporate/National Security
* Privacy in computer networks
* Privacy and RFIDs
* Privacy and Big Data
* Privacy in sensor networks

========================================================================

Submission guidelines: Full papers should be at most 16
pages (using 11-point font), including the bibliography. Position
papers, as well as shoort papers, should be at most 8
pages (using 11-point font), including the bibliography. Authors
should indicate whether their paper is a position paper to
differentiate them from regular ones (just mention /position paper/
in the title). Program Committee members are not required to read
the appendices, so the paper should be intelligible without them.
All submissions must be written in English.

Authors must submit their papers by the deadline indicated below,
using the EasyChair web site (at easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dpm2015)
and following the requirements stated there.

The submitted paper (in PDF format) should follow the template
indicated by Springer (see http://springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html).
It must start with a title, a short abstract, names and affiliations
of the authors, and a list of keywords.

All papers will be refereed. Accepted papers should be presented at
the Workshop. At least one author of each accepted paper must register
to the workshop, by the early date indicated by the organizers, and
present the paper.

As in previous editions, the proceedings are expected to be published
in a volume of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series of Springer.

Submissions by PhD students as well as controversial ideas are
encouraged. Case studies (successful or not) are also encouraged.
