-Algorithms for distributed systems (static or dynamic) and their
complexity;
-Cluster, cloud, grid and high-performance computing;
-Distributed operating systems, middleware, and database systems;
-Communication networks (protocols, architectures, services, applications);
-Cryptographic protocols and security mechanisms;
-Fault tolerance, reliability, availability;
-Internet applications, social systems, peer-to-peer and overlay networks;
-Self-* solutions for distributed systems;
-Mobile and wireless computing and sensor networks;
-Mobile agents and autonomous robots.

*PUBLICATION*

OPODIS 2015 will have post-proceedings available after the conference,
which allows for modifications based on the discussion during the
conference. Preliminary versions of the proceedings will be available
to participants at the conference electronically.

The proceedings will be published by
LIPIcs: Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics
http://www.dagstuhl.de/en/publications/lipics

*TUTORIALS*

OPODIS 2015 will feature selected tutorials, covering research subjects
in the scope of the conference.

Experts in the domains covered by OPODIS are invited to share their
expertise with the community by submitting proposals for tutorials. The
duration of a tutorial is one session (90 to 120 minutes), including
time for questions.

A tutorial proposal should not exceed three (3) pages in length using a
11pt font size. It must include the following information:

-The title of the tutorial;
-An abstract of the tutorial content;
-A brief statement of the relevance of the tutorial to OPODIS;
-The name(s), e-mail address(es) and affiliation(s) of the presenter(s);
-The biography and relevant publications of the presenter(s);
-If the authors will consider submitting an abstract of the tutorial (see
below);
-When applicable, if and where the tutorial has already been given in
the past.

Presenters of tutorials will be given the possibility to publish an
extended abstract of the tutorial content in the proceedings of the
conference. Such extended abstracts are encouraged but optional, and
will have to be accepted through peer review before inclusion.

Tutorial proposals must be sent by email directly to the program co-chairs
in PDF format. More information will appear on:
https://opodis2015.irisa.fr/keynotes-and-tutorials/

The selection will be based on a combination of interest in content from
the perspective and the topics of OPODIS, the timeliness and the
potential to attract or establish new communities, and the proposed
organization.

*BEST PAPER AWARD*

Starting with this edition, OPODIS will feature a "Best Paper" Award.
All papers accepted for presentation at the conference will be evaluated
by the award committee. The Best Paper Award aims to encourage work that
best combines theory and practice, and demonstrates excellence of
research in at least one of the two. This might be, for instance, an
advance in theory work that solves a real system issue, or an advance in
systems that builds upon theoretical results. The award committee may
decide to decline to confer the award, or to split it among more than
one recipient.

[DMANET] Internet Mathematics special issue on “Algorithms for evolving networks”

Call for papers

https://evolvingnetworks2015.wordpress.com/2015/05/10/cfp/

The widespread adoption of digitization has opened the way to gathering large amounts of data that record detailed information for many systems of interest. Examples include telecommunication networks, online social-media platforms, and biological systems. Many of these systems are typically represented as networks, and graph-theoretic techniques are used to analyze the available data. Furthermore, as our data-gathering capacity has increased, it is now possible to collect data the record not only a static aggregate view of the underlying network, but a continuous stream of events that captures the full dynamic behavior of the network. Such events may take the form of structural changes, or they may encode different types of actions and interactions performed by the network entities. This view of time-evolving networks poses new challenges and opens new research directions. The objective is to develop the theoretical foundations and to design the algorithmic principles that !
will allow to efficiently manage and analyze such evolving networks. This special issue of Internet Mathematics invites original research papers on algorithmic and mathematical methods for modeling, processing, and analyzing evolving networks. The topics of interest include but are not limited to

Models and novel computational paradigms for evolving networks
Graph stream algorithms
Monitoring and mining evolving networks
Spectral analysis of evolving networks
Detecting events, trends, and change points
Inferring structure from network activity
Applications in social media, web graphs, citation networks, biological networks, and other domains

Papers that have previously appeared in peer-reviewed conferences may be submitted, provided that significant extensions and additional non-trivial contributions are presented. In the latter case, submissions should be accompanied by a cover letter summarizing the additional contributions with respect to the earlier conference version.

The papers should be prepared and submitted according to the general guidelines for authors of Internet Mathematics. Please indicate in your submission that the paper is submitted for the special issue.

Submission deadline: Oct 15, 2015

Submission at the website of Internet Mathematics: http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/uinm20/current

Summary of the project

Electricity generation and consumption are always considered as a ''hot topic'' for governments, economists, ecologists, and scientists. Indeed, in spite of modern power generator technologies, the energy consumption increase defines new challenges for power producers and electricity providers. Because supply and demand for electricity must balance in real-time, rapid changes in demand create operational challenges for the electric system.

The aim of the project is to solve a joint pricing and design problem of energy services in a competitive environment for residential demand side management. More precisely, the objective is twofold : generate revenue for an energy provider and encourage the customers to individually and voluntarily reduce their consumption at peak periods. A bi-level approach is considered to take explicitly into account the strategic behavior of consumers into the optimization process.

EDF has to define new product offer to its industrial customers (tarifs jaunes et verts). In this framework the thesis will be a real challenge.

Thesis goals

The goals of the thesis are twofold. First the student will have to define appropriate models for the problem in a monopolistic and competitive environment. A close collaboration with practitioners (Direction Economie Prix et Tarif) will be required. Next the solution algorithms will have to be developed and tested.

Skills

Optimization Background, Coding in C++ or java,

Economical knowledge will be an add value.

Environment and Timing

The thesis will start october 2015 and will take place at INRIA Lille, EDF Lab at Saclay and PGMO lab at l'Ecole Polytechnique.

For any further information feel free to contact Luce Brotcorne or Sébastien Lepaul.

To apply for the project, please send a CV, a motivation letter and record to Luce.Brotcorne@inria.fr and sebastien.lepaul@edf.fr

Summary of the project

Electricity generation and consumption are always considered as a ''hot topic'' for governments, economists, ecologists, and scientists. Indeed, in spite of modern power generator technologies, the energy consumption increase defines new challenges for power producers and electricity providers. Because supply and demand for electricity must balance in real-time, rapid changes in demand create operational challenges for the electric system.

The aim of the project is to solve a joint pricing and design problem of energy services in a competitive environment for residential demand side management. More precisely, the objective is twofold : generate revenue for an energy provider and encourage the customers to individually and voluntarily reduce their consumption at peak periods. A bi-level approach is considered to take explicitly into account the strategic behavior of consumers into the optimization process.

EDF has to define new product offer to its industrial customers (tarifs jaunes et verts). In this framework the thesis will be a real challenge.

Thesis goals

The goals of the thesis are twofold. First the student will have to define appropriate models for the problem in a monopolistic and competitive environment. A close collaboration with practitioners (Direction Economie Prix et Tarif) will be required. Next the solution algorithms will have to be developed and tested.

Skills

Optimization Background, Coding in C++ or java,

Economical knowledge will be an add value.


Environment and Timing

The thesis will start october 2015 and will take place at INRIA Lille, EDF Lab at Saclay and PGMO lab at l'Ecole Polytechnique.

For any further information feel free to contact Luce Brotcorne or Sébastien Lepaul.

To apply for the project, please send a CV, a motivation letter and record to Luce.Brotcorne@inria.fr and sebastien.lepaul@edf.fr

*ORAHS 2015, 41th ORAHS Conference*
*July 19-24 2015*
*Montréal, Canada*

Web page : https://symposia.cirrelt.ca/ORAHS2015
email: orahs2015@cirrelt.ca


We would like to announce the ORAHS 2015 Conference, the 41th annual
meeting of the EURO Working Group on Operational Research Applied to Health
Services. The conference will take place at HEC Montréal, in Montréal
(Québec, Canada).


The conference theme is "Networking Health: Facing the Challenges in
Healthcare Management". Over recent years, health services in most
countries have been confronted with rising demands while having to face
more and more restrictive budgetary conditions. In addition, health
services are now increasingly conceived as networks where different
entities must be managed and coordinated. This constantly evolving
environment raises complex challenges with respect to organization,
resource and personnel planning and management, efficiency and performance
measures and improvements. This conference will provide an ideal forum to
present and discuss ways to attain these objectives. In addition, this
year's ORAHSconference will take place across the Atlantic, in Montréal
(Canada), thus providing the added opportunity to compare and exchange
European and Canadian\North American perspectives on these challenges and
the ways to deal with them.


The conference will consist of parallel sessions for invited and
contributed talks as well as a poster session. Plenary talks will be given
by researchers from the OR community and by healthcare practitioners.


As is tradition with ORAHS meetings, a series of social activities will be
organized around the strong scientific program. This social program
includes a one-day tour and a boat trip on the Saint-Laurence River from
where participants will be able to enjoy the beauty of Montreal from a
different perspective.


All researchers interested in healthcare applications are invited to
participate in this conference and to submit a presentation. For abstract
submission and registration please refer to the conference webpage:

academics and industry pioneers will lecture and share their views with the
audience.

Most information security subareas will be displayed, namely: computer
security, cryptography, privacy, cyber security, mobile security, network
security, world wide web security, fraud prevention, data protection, etc.
Main challenges of information security will be identified through 4 keynote
lectures, 28 six-hour courses, and 1 round table, which will tackle the most
active and promising topics. The organizers believe outstanding speakers
will attract the brightest and most motivated students. Interaction will be
a main component of the event. An open session will give participants the
opportunity to present their own work in progress in 5 minutes.

ADDRESSED TO:

Graduates and postgraduates from around the world. There are no formal
pre-requisites in terms of academic degrees. However, since there will be
differences in the course levels, specific background knowledge may be
required for some of them.

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.
