[DMANET] The Sixth IEEE Int. Conference on Software Defined Systems (SDS-2019). Rome, Italy. June 10-13 - 2019

The Sixth IEEE International Conference on Software Defined Systems
(SDS-2019)

Rome, Italy. June 10-13, 2019

http://emergingtechnet.org/SDS2019/

(Technically Co-Sponsored by IEEE Italy Section)

*Call for Papers:*

Next generation cloud systems will require a paradigm shift in how they are
constructed and managed. Conventional control and management platforms are
facing considerable challenges regarding flexibility, dependability and
security that next generation systems will require. The cloud computing
paradigm has gone part of the way towards alleviating some of the problems
associated with resource allocation, utilization and managements (e.g., via
elasticity). However, many of the elements of a well-designed cloud
environment remain "stiff" and hard to modify and adapt in an integrated
fashion. This includes underlying networking topologies, many aspects of
the user control over IaaS, PaaS or SaaS layers when such is needed,
construction of XaaS services, provenance and meta-data collection, and so
on. In many situations the problem may be because service abstraction is
inadequate. Software Defined Systems (SDS) are systems that have added
software components which help abstract actual IT equipment and other
layers. One classical example, of course, are hypervisors. Such separation
provides a great opportunity for system administrators to more easily
construct and managing their systems through flexible software layers.

Software Defined Systems include Software Defined Networking (SDN),
Software Defined Storage, Software Defined Servers (Virtualization),
Software Defined Datacenters (SDD), Software Defined Security (SDSec), and
ultimately Software Defined Clouds (SDCloud) to name a few possibilities.
Individual solutions and seamless integration of these abstractions remains
in many respects a challenge. After the high success of the previous
editions (SDS'2014, SDS'2015, SDS'2016, SDS'2017 and SDS'2018), The sixth
International conference on Software Defined Systems 2019 (SDS'2019) will
continue to be a forum for scientists, researchers, students, and
practitioners to present their latest research results, ideas, and
developments in the area of software defined systems – both components and
their integration - and by implication advancement of next generation
clouds.

SDS 2019 aims to investigate the opportunities and in all aspects of
Software Defined Systems. In addition, it seeks for novel contributions
that help mitigating SDS challenges. That is, the objective of SDS 2019 is
to provide a forum for scientists, engineers, and researchers to discuss
and exchange new ideas, novel results and experience on all aspects of
Software Defined Systems.

[DMANET] DEADLINE EXTENSION: The Third International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Data Mining (WPDM 2019)

WPDM 2019


The Third International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Data Mining (WPDM 2019)
http://sara.unisalento.it/~cafaro/WPDM2019/

CALL FOR PAPERS

The Third Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Data Mining (WPDM 2019) will be held in conjunction with The 19th International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications (ICCSA 2019), http://www.iccsa.org


Saint Petersburg University, Saint Petersburg, Russia July 1-4 2019


Submission Deadline extended to: March 3, 2019


SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES

The Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Data Mining is an international forum which brings together researchers and practitioners working on different high-performance aspects of data mining algorithms, enabling novel applications. Data mining techniques and algorithms to process huge amount of data in order to extract useful and interesting information have become popular in many different contexts. Algorithms are required to make sense of data automatically and in efficient ways. Nonetheless, even though sequential computer systems performance is improving, they are not suitable to keep up with the increase in the demand for data mining applications and the data size. Moreover, the main memory of sequential systems may not be enough to hold all the data related to current applications. Therefore, there is an increasing interest in the design and implementation of parallel data mining algorithms. On parallel computers, by exploiting the vast aggregate main memory and processing power of processors and accelerators, parallel algorithms can easily address both the running time and memory requirement issues. Anyway, parallelizing existing algorithms in order to achieve good performance and scalability with regard to massive datasets is not trivial. Indeed, it is of paramount importance a good data organization and decomposition strategy in order to balance the workload while minimizing data dependences. Another concern is related to minimizing synchronization and communication overhead. Finally, I/O costs should be minimized as well. The Workshop will allow exchanging ideas and results related to on-going research, focusing on high-performance aspects of data mining algorithms and applications. Creating breakthrough parallel algorithms for high-performance data mining applications requires addressing several key computing problems which may lead to novel solutions and new insights in interdisciplinary applications. The focus of the workshop is on all forms of advances in high-performance data mining algorithms and applications, and related topics.

The WPDM Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

- Parallel data mining algorithms using MPI and/or OpenMP
- Parallel data mining algorithms targeting GPUs and many-cores accelerators
- Parallel data mining applications exploiting FPGA
- Distributed data mining algorithms
- Benchmarking and performance studies of high-performance data mining applications
- Novel programming paradigms to support high-performance computing for data mining
- Performance models for high-performance data mining applications and middleware
- Programming models, tools, and environments for high-performance computing in data mining
- Caching, streaming, pipelining, and other optimization techniques for data management in high-performance computing for data mining

[DMANET] The Third International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Data Mining (WPDM 2019)

WPDM 2019


The Third International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Data Mining (WPDM 2019)
http://sara.unisalento.it/~cafaro/WPDM2019/

CALL FOR PAPERS

The Third Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Data Mining (WPDM 2019) will be held in conjunction with The 19th International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications (ICCSA 2019), http://www.iccsa.org


Saint Petersburg University, Saint Petersburg, Russia July 1-4 2019


Final submission Deadline: February 17, 2019


SCOPE AND OBJECTIVES

The Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Data Mining is an international forum which brings together researchers and practitioners working on different high-performance aspects of data mining algorithms, enabling novel applications. Data mining techniques and algorithms to process huge amount of data in order to extract useful and interesting information have become popular in many different contexts. Algorithms are required to make sense of data automatically and in efficient ways. Nonetheless, even though sequential computer systems performance is improving, they are not suitable to keep up with the increase in the demand for data mining applications and the data size. Moreover, the main memory of sequential systems may not be enough to hold all the data related to current applications. Therefore, there is an increasing interest in the design and implementation of parallel data mining algorithms. On parallel computers, by exploiting the vast aggregate main memory and processing power of processors and accelerators, parallel algorithms can easily address both the running time and memory requirement issues. Anyway, parallelizing existing algorithms in order to achieve good performance and scalability with regard to massive datasets is not trivial. Indeed, it is of paramount importance a good data organization and decomposition strategy in order to balance the workload while minimizing data dependences. Another concern is related to minimizing synchronization and communication overhead. Finally, I/O costs should be minimized as well. The Workshop will allow exchanging ideas and results related to on-going research, focusing on high-performance aspects of data mining algorithms and applications. Creating breakthrough parallel algorithms for high-performance data mining applications requires addressing several key computing problems which may lead to novel solutions and new insights in interdisciplinary applications. The focus of the workshop is on all forms of advances in high-performance data mining algorithms and applications, and related topics.

The WPDM Workshop topics include (but are not limited to) the following:

- Parallel data mining algorithms using MPI and/or OpenMP
- Parallel data mining algorithms targeting GPUs and many-cores accelerators
- Parallel data mining applications exploiting FPGA
- Distributed data mining algorithms
- Benchmarking and performance studies of high-performance data mining applications
- Novel programming paradigms to support high-performance computing for data mining
- Performance models for high-performance data mining applications and middleware
- Programming models, tools, and environments for high-performance computing in data mining
- Caching, streaming, pipelining, and other optimization techniques for data management in high-performance computing for data mining

[DMANET] BIOKDD-DEXA'19: CFP

*CALL FOR PAPERS*

*10th International Workshop on*

*Biological **Knowledge Discovery from Big Data **(BIOKDD'19)*

Held in parallel with

*30th International Conference on Database and *

*Expert Systems Applications **(**DEXA'19**)*

www.dexa.org/biokdd2019

Linz, Austria

August 26 - 29, 2019

In the recent years, there has been a rapid development of biological
technologies producing more and more *biological data*, i.e., data related
to biological macromolecules (DNA, RNA and proteins). The rise of *Next
Generation Sequencing* (NGS) technologies, also known as *high-throughput
sequencing* technologies, has contributed actively to the deluge of these
data. In general, these data are big, heterogeneous, complex, and distributed
in all over the world in databases. Analyzing biological big data is a
challenging task, not only, because of its complexity and its multiple and
numerous correlated factors, but also, because of the continuous evolution
of our understanding of the biological mechanisms. Classical approaches of
biological data analysis are no longer efficient and produce only a very
limited amount of information, compared to the numerous and complex
biological mechanisms under study. From here comes the necessity to adopt
new computer tools and develop new *in silico* high performance approaches
to support us in the analysis of biological big data and, hence, to help us
in our understanding of the correlations that exist between, on one hand,
structures and functional patterns in biological macromolecules and, on the
other hand, genetic and biochemical mechanisms. *Biological **Knowledge
Discovery from Big Data* (BIOKDD) is a response to these new trends.

Topics of BIOKDD'19 workshop include, but not limited to:

*Data Preprocessing: *Biological Big Data Storage*, *Representation
and Management
(data warehouses, databases, sequences, trees, graphs, biological networks
and pathways, …), Biological Big Data Cleaning (errors removal, redundant
data removal, completion of missing data, …), Feature Extraction
(motifs, subgraphs,
…), Feature Selection (filter approaches, wrapper approaches, hybrid
approaches, embedded approaches, …).

*Data Mining: *Biological Big Data Regression (regression of biological
sequences…), Biological Big Data Clustering/Biclustering (microarray data
biclustering, clustering/biclustering of biological sequences, …),
Biological Big Data Classification (classification of biological sequences…),
Association Rules Learning from Biological Big Data, Text mining and
Application to Biological Sequences, Web mining and Application to
Biological Big Data, Parallel, Cloud and Grid Computing for Biological Big
Data Mining.

*Data Postprocessing:* Biological Nuggets of Knowledge Filtering,
Biological Nuggets of Knowledge Representation and Visualization,
Biological Nuggets of Knowledge Evaluation (calculation of the
classification error rate, evaluation of the association rules *via*
numerical indicators, e.g. *measurements of interest*, … ), Biological
Nuggets of Knowledge Integration

*PAPER SUBMISSION DETAILS: *

Authors are invited to submit electronically original contributions in
English. Submitted papers should not exceed 5 pages in IEEE CSP format
