"Making an Impact" (MAI) is intended to make the conference attractive to practitioners who may not otherwise attend, by providing participatory sessions aimed at helping them to do a better job. It will include an academic-practitioner panel discussion, tutorials and seminars aimed at anybody who is engaged in the practical application of OR. The organising team is keen to integrate it with the rest of the conference, so that those streams and sessions that can be of practitioner interest are highlighted, and people participating in those streams and sessions are also aware of MAI. Presenters can lead an MAI activity (for example running a seminar on some practical aspect of OR) in addition to presenting their own paper, so if you think you can contribute, please do get in touch. For more information and to get involved please see the webpage




The Conference Chairs are glad to inform you about excellent Special Issues, presented at, where guest editors call for papers.

[DMANET] ACA 2018 -- Call for Papers



ACA 2018 (satellite of ACRI 2018)

Fifth International Workshop on Asynchronous Cellular Automata and Asynchronous Discrete Models

at 13th International Conference on Cellular Automata for Research and Industry (ACRI 2018)

Villa del Grumello - Lake Como School Of Advanced Studies
Como, Italy

The conference is organised by the University of Milano-Bicocca


Cellular Automata are a well-known formal tool for modeling complex systems; they are found in many scientific fields and industrial applications. Synchronicity is one of the main features of Cellular Automata evolutions. Indeed, in the most common Cellular Automata framework, all cells are updated simultaneously at each discrete time step.

Recent trends consider the modeling of asynchronous systems based on local interactions. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers dealing with the theme of the asyncronicity inside Cellular Automata and other Discrete Models such as discrete Multi-Agents Systems, Boolean Networks, and so on, in order to foster their interaction and to provide a forum for presenting new ideas and works in progress on the subject. The subject of Probabilistic Cellular Automata and Probabilistic Discrete Models is also included among the themes of ACA 2018.

Topics include, but are not limited to the following aspects of Asynchronous Cellular Automata and Asynchronous Discrete Models (such as Multi-Agents Systems, Boolean Networks and so on):

- dynamics of asynchronous/probabilistic systems
- complexity issues
- computational issues
- emergent properties
- models of parallelism and distributed systems
- models of phenomena from biology, chemistry, physics, engineering and other fields
- applications of asynchronous and probabilistic automata (genetic regulation networks, network coding, load balancing, etc)

Both theoretical and applicative contributions are most welcome.


The Conference will take place at the Villa del Grumello (Como, ITALY), within
the Como Lake School of Advanced Studies, see .
Villa del Grumello overlooks the first basin of Como Lake. It is framed by
century-old trees and enchants its visitors with its delicate atmospheres
and its harmonious setting. Driving force of the development of the Lariano
area, Villa del Grumello is a reference point for culture, science and the
business community.


Authors are invited to submit papers according to two contribution categories -- full and short papers -- meant to provide a differentiation of the papers in terms of their length, depth and/or maturity. Papers must comply with the Springer-Verlag format and the maximum length of 5 and 10 pages for short and full contributions, respectively.

Details on the electronic submission procedure will be provided through the website

Accepted papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.


It is also planned that selected papers will be considered for publication in Special Issues of an international journal (Natural Computing).

They will contain refereed extended versions of selected papers presented at the ACA workshop.

[DMANET] [DEADLINE EXTENSION] The Second International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Data Mining (WPDM 2018)

WPDM 2018

The Second International Workshop on Parallel and Distributed Data Mining (WPDM 2018)


As part of The 18th International Conference on Computational Science and Its Applications (ICCSA 2018),

July 2 - 5 2018, Melbourne, Australia

Submission Deadline: April 9, 2018


Selected extended versions of workshop papers will be invited to a Special Issue to appear in the Algorithms journal (see


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


You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above topics. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. The submitted paper must be between 10 to 16 pages long and formatted according to the Springer LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) rules, Guidelines and templates can be found at the url

To submit a paper, please connect to the Submission site from the link available at the ICCSA 2018 web site:
