[DMANET] 2nd CFP Multi/Many-core computing for parallel Metaheuristics

Please accept our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP.

*************************************************************************************
*Multi/Many-core computing for parallel Metaheuristics(McM'2015)
*http://www.umons.ac.be/mcm2015
*In conjunction with
*The 11th Metaheuristics International Conference (MIC'2015)
*http://www.lifl.fr/MIC2015
*7-10
June, 2015
*Agadir, Morocco
*************************************************************************************

Submission Deadline: Feb 6, 2015
Selected best papers of McM'2015 will be considered for publication in
a special issue of the Wiley's journal of Concurrency and Computation:
Practice and Experience (CC-PE).

-----------------------------------------
PURPOSE AND SCOPE
-----------------------------------------
Plenty of hard problems in a wide range of application areas,
including engineering design, telecommunications, logistics, etc. have
been modelled and tackled successfully with metaheuristics
(evolutionary algorithms, scatter or swarm search, simulated
annealing, Tabu search, etc.).
Nowadays, optimization problems become increasingly large and complex,
forcing the use of parallel computing for their efficient and
effective resolution. On the other hand, parallel computing has
recently undergone a significant evolution in terms of performance and
energy consumption with the emergence of multi-core and many-core
computing technologies (GPU, MIC, etc.). Indeed, accelerators and
coprocessors have powered many parallel and/or distributed
environements including high-performance workstations, hybrid clusters
among them the top ranked Top500 and Green500 ones, and computational
grids and clouds.
The design and implementation of parallel metaheuristics for the above
environments raise several issues related in the same time to the
characteristics of these hardware execution machines and those of the
parallel models of metaheuristics. This workshop seeks to provide an
opportunity for the researchers to present their original
contributions on the joint use of advanced (discrete or continuous,
single or multi-objective, static or dynamic, deterministic or
stochastic, hybrid) optimization methods and distributed and/or
parallel multi/many-core computing, and any related issues.

-----------------------------------------
TOPICS INCLUDE (BUT NOT LIMITED TO):
-----------------------------------------
Parallel models (island, master-worker, multi-start, etc.) for
metaheuristics revisited for multi-core and/or many-core (MMC)
environments.
Parallel mechanisms for hybridization of metaheuristics on MMC environments.
Implementation of parallel metaheuristics on MMC workstations, MMC
clusters, MMC grids/clouds, etc.
Software frameworks for the design and implementation of parallel
and/or distributed MMC metaheuristics.
Computational/theoretical studies reporting results on solving
challenging problems using MMC computing.
Performance metrics for MMC parallel and/or distributed metaheuristics.
Energy-aware optimization for/with MMC parallel and/or distributed
metaheuristics.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR PAPER SUBMISSION

Authors are invited to submit papers to the McM'2015 workshop. During
submission authors will be required to specify which track they are
submitting their paper to. Submitted papers to McM'2015 must be

[DMANET] Special issue in TCS on 'Theory and Applications of Graph Searching Problems' (GRASTA), submission open

Call for Papers
Theoretical Computer Science (TCS)

Special Issue:
GRASTA'14, 6th Workshop on GRAph Searching, Theory and Applications
Carg=E8se, Corsica, France, 2014
http://www-sop.inria.fr/coati/events/grasta2014/

Manuscripts are solicited for a special issue in the journal =
=91=91Theoretical Computer Science=92=92 (TCS) on =91=91Theory and =
Applications of Graph Searching Problems=92=92.

Graph searching is often referred to, in a more playful language, as a =
pursuit-evasion game. This is a kind of game where one part is a set of =
evaders, that hide in a graph representing a network, and the other part =
is a team of pursuers, that move systematically in the graph. The game =
may vary significantly according to the capabilities of the evaders and =
the pursuers. The objective of the game is to capture the evaders in an =
optimal way, where the notion of optimality itself admits several =
interpretations. The area of Graph Searching has become a very active =
research area in theoretical computer science and discrete mathematics, =
with impact and applications in various domains.=20

With this Special Issue, we wish to foster research in the area by =
exposing new results and directions for further research.
The purpose of the issue is to put together various recent results =
related to Graph Searching both from the applied and the theoretical =
point of view.=20

Potential topics include (but are not limited to) the following:
=95 Graph Searching and Logic
=95 Graph Parameters Related to Graph Searching
=95 Graph searching and Robotics
=95 Conquest and Expansion Games
=95 Database Theory and Robber and Marshals Games
=95 Probabilistic Techniques in Graph Searching
=95 Monotonicity and Connectivity in Graph Searching
=95 New Variants of Graph Searching
=95 Graph Searching and Distributed Computing
=95 Graph Searching and Network Security

Submissions should be made in PDF format using the standard TCS =
submission system at http://ees.elsevier.com/tcs/ (select the article =
type =93SI: GRASTA 2014=94)
Papers will be refereed according to the standards of TCS.

Submissions must be received before March 31, 2015.

SCOPE AND OVERVIEW
------------------------------------------------------------------------

The evolving information and communications (ICT) technologies present a unique
opportunity to effect the transformation needed to move us towards the goal of
sustainability by helping to reduce our carbon footprint, mitigate and adapt ill effects
of climate change, reduce and repair environmental damage, provide effective disaster
response and recovery, creatively manage overstressed infrastructures in crowded
urban systems, and enhance use of planet friendly materials and technologies. ICT
is already being integrated into many areas of our lives, such as smart management
of city services, transportation, energy distribution and management, health care, etc.,
and this integration is expected to expand deeper and wider in the coming years and
decades. Unfortunately, this ICT proliferation brings in its own challenges of increased
carbon footprint, accelerating obsolescence of electronic equipment and its disposal
issues, increased use of precious natural resources such as water and materials, etc.
These twin problems of reducing the environmental impact of ICT and exploiting ICT
for a more sustainable world form the underlying theme for SustainIT since its
inception in 2010.

This edition of SustainIT continues this theme by focusing on inter-disciplinary
scientific challenges of enhancing the sustainability of ICT and via ICT. The goal
of this conference is to bring together people from different research areas, and
provide a forum to exchange ideas, discuss solutions, and share experiences among
researchers, professionals, and application developers from both industry and academia.

Original papers addressing both theoretical and practical aspects of sustainability
of ICT (including smart energy management) and innovative use of ICT to enhance
human and societal sustainability are solicited.

Postdoc position at KTH Royal Institute of Technology

The Theory Group at KTH Royal Institute of Technology invites applications for
a postdoctoral position in computational complexity and/or SAT solving.

KTH is the leading technical university in Sweden. The Theory Group at KTH
(http://www.csc.kth.se/tcs/) offers a strong research environment covering a
wide range of research topics such as complexity theory and approximation
algorithms, computer and network security, cryptography, formal methods and
natural language processing. The group has a consistent track record of
publishing in the leading theoretical computer science conferences and
journals worldwide, and the research conducted here has attracted numerous
international awards and grants in recent years.

The postdoctoral researcher will be working in the research group of Jakob
Nordstrom (http://www.csc.kth.se/~jakobn). Much of the activities of this
group revolve around the themes of proof complexity and SAT solving. On the
theoretical side, proof complexity has turned out to have deep, and sometimes
surprising, connections to other topics such as, e.g., circuit complexity,
communication complexity, and hardness of approximation, and therefore
researchers in these or other related areas are more than welcome to apply. On
the practical side, some interesting problems are to gain a better
understanding of the performance of current state-of-the-art SAT solvers ---
in particular, solvers using conflict-driven clause learning (CDCL) --- and to
explore techniques that would go beyond CDCL, such as approaches based on
algebraic or geometric reasoning.

The research project is financed by a Breakthrough Research Grant from the
Swedish Research Council and a Starting Independent Researcher Grant from the
European Research Council. In addition to the research group leader, the group
currently consists of one postdoc and four PhD students. Travel funding is
included, and the group also receives short-term and long-term visitors on a
regular basis.

This is a full-time employed position for one year with a possible one-year
extension. The successful candidate is expected to start in August-September
2015, although this is to some extent negotiable.

The application deadline is January 25, 2015. More information and
instructions how to apply can be found at
http://www.csc.kth.se/~jakobn/openings/D-2014-0761-Eng.php . Informal
enquiries are welcome and may be sent to Jakob Nordstrom.

[DMANET] IEEE INFOCOM WIDN Workshop 2015 Deadline Dec 21st

CALL FOR PAPERS
DEALINE EXTENDED TO DEC 21st!

WIDN 2015 is inherently interdisciplinary, as it attempts to integrate
across the cyber-physical, engineering and social, behavioral and economic
(SBE) sciences in pursuit of an understanding of the interdependent
critical infrastructure systems (ICIs). The workshop in order to
accommodate the distinct traditions of its many disciplines, provides three
different submission formats.

- Full papers (6 pages)
- Position papers (6 pages)
- Extended Abstracts (upto 2 pages, for non-computer science disciplines)

More details of the workshop:

============================================================
IEEE INFOCOM Workshop on Inter-Dependent Networks (WIDN) April, 27, Hong
Kong, 2015

(in conjunction with IEEE INFOCOM 2015 - April, 26 - May,1 , Hong Kong)

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

SCOPE AND TOPICS OF INTEREST
---------------------------------------------------

Modern networked systems, in particular, networked physical
infrastructures, are inter-dependent in such a way that changing in one
network may have a profound impact on other systems. One notable example of
such interdependent networked system is the smart-grid, of which the power
stations depend on communication networks for control and management and
vice versa, the communication networks depend on the power systems for
their electricity supports. Furthermore, the rapid adoption and
pervasiveness of computing, and emergence of smart cyber-physical systems
and Internet of Things (IoT) have created new capabilities for autonomy,
interoperability, interaction and cooperation between many critical
computing, communication and control networks ("cyber systems") and
physical infrastructures and "smart" environments ("physical systems").
Unfortunately, the connections with cyberspace also open to new surfaces of
vulnerabilities and new threat vectors. The challenge is to understand the
interdependencies of these systems and how the dynamics are cascaded
between them so as to design and develop "smarter" and more resilient
inter-dependent networked (cyber-physical) systems.

The objective of this workshop is to advance and promote theoretical
foundations for understanding the behaviors of and inter-dependencies in
modern networked systems -- especially, in critical (networked) physical
infrastructure systems -- and emerging cyber-physical systems. It also
seeks to explore new system architectures and innovative mechanisms for the
design and development of robust and resilient interdependent networked
systems. This workshop will foster an interdisciplinary research community
that discovers new knowledge for the design and operation of national
critical networked infrastructures as processes and services.

WIDN 2015 is inherently interdisciplinary, as it attempts to integrate
across the cyber-physical, engineering and social, behavioral and economic
(SBE) sciences in pursuit of an understanding of the interdependent
critical infrastructure systems (ICIs). The workshop in order to
accommodate the distinct traditions of its many disciplines, provides three
different submission formats.
