[DMANET] Postdoc position on Theory of Evolutionary Computation and Population Genetics

The Department of Computer Science at the University of Sheffield is
offering a Postdoc position on Theory of Evolutionary Computation and
Population Genetics


A Research Assistant or Research Fellow position is available to work on
analysing the efficiency of evolutionary processes in evolutionary
algorithms and models of natural evolution. The position is part of SAGE
(Speed of Adaptation in Population Genetics and Evolutionary Algorithms,
http://www.project-sage.eu/), an interdisciplinary European project in
the Future and Emerging Technologies scheme. This is a fixed term post,
starting Sep 1st 2015 (negotiable) and ending on Dec 31st 2016. It is
based in the Department of Computer Science, University of Sheffield,
and reports to Dr Dirk Sudholt.

SAGE is a joint effort between four European research
institutions--University of Nottingham, University of Sheffield, Hasso
Plattner Institute Potsdam, and IST Austria--to develop world-leading
research at the interface between Population Genetics and Computer
Science. Specifically, SAGE aims at bringing together these two research
fields to develop a unified quantitative theory that describes how
quickly populations adapt to evolve high-fitness individuals in both
natural and artificial evolution. Our goal is to reveal how this
efficiency is fundamentally determined by evolutionary and environmental
parameters, and how these parameters can be tuned to use evolution most
effectively in applications ranging from evolutionary algorithms to
experimental evolution and synthetic biology. The successful candidate
will join a growing team of young and ambitious researchers that has
already made excellent progress towards achieving these goals.

Applications are invited from highly skilled researchers in Computer
Science, Mathematics, Physics, Theoretical Biology or related areas (at
the interface between computer science and biology). A good
understanding of evolutionary computation and/or population genetics
will be an advantage. In addition, strong mathematical and analytical
skills are essential. The applicants must have (or be very close to
completing) a PhD in Computer Science, Biology, Mathematics, Physics or
related disciplines.

The post is available at Grade 7 (Research Associate, £29,552-£37,394
per annum) or Grade 8 (Research Fellow, £38,511-£40,847 per annum),
depending on experience.

Further details and an online application form are available from
https://t.co/1DL71Fo2Ia
Applicants need to apply through the above online system before August
26, 2015.

Please send informal enquiries to Dirk Sudholt, d.sudholt@sheffield.ac.uk.

GD 2015

23rd International Symposium on
Graph Drawing and Network Visualization

September 24-26, 2015 - Los Angeles, CA, USA
http://www.csun.edu/gd2015/

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

Graph Drawing is concerned with the geometric representation of graphs and
constitutes the algorithmic core of Network Visualization. Graph Drawing and
Network Visualization are motivated by applications where it is crucial to
visually analyze and interact with relational datasets. Examples of such
application areas include social sciences, Internet and Web computing,
information systems, computational biology, networking, VLSI circuit
design,
and software engineering.

The International Symposium on Graph Drawing has been the main annual event
in this area for more than twenty years. This year the Steering
Committee of
GD decided to extend the name of the conference from the "International
Symposium on Graph Drawing" to the "International Symposium on Graph
Drawing
and Network Visualization" in order to better emphasize the dual focus of
the conference on combinatorial and algorithmic aspects as well as the
design
of network visualization systems and interfaces.

The conference will be hosted by the California State University at
Northridge,
in Los Angeles, CA, from September 24 to 26, 2015. Researchers and
practitioners
working on any aspect of graph drawing and network visualization are
invited to
participate in the symposium and the graph drawing contest.

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

CALL FOR PAPERS -- IoT-App 2015

The 2015 International Workshop on Internet of Things towards Applications
Co-located with ACM SenSys 2015, Seoul, South Korea
http://ceca.pku.edu.cn/IoT-App15/


The notion of "Internet of Things" has emerged as a last-mile solution for
connecting various cyber technologies to our everyday life. It envisions a
world in which the sensor devices could exist in any form factor, anywhere,
in which all the sensory data will be made available to the Internet, and
be readily accessible to a wide range of applications. The sensor devices
are usually attached to physical objects, providing a real-time,
interactive view of the physical world. Although much progress has been
made at the system and sensing level, applications for these platforms are
considerably lagging behind. Without compelling applications, the vision of
the Internet of Things will not be realized.

The 2015 International Workshop on Internet of Things towards Applications (
IoT-App'15) aims to provide a forum for researchers to present thoughts and
results on IoT applications. We are looking for application descriptions,
development, experiences and evaluation in a wide range of domains
including, but not limited to homes, offices, medical care, vehicles,
transportation, supply chains and education. Particularly, we are
interested in identifying new applications that are made possible by the
Internet of Things, as well as new challenges these applications will pose
to the design of an Internet of Things.

TOPICS of INTEREST

= Novel IoT applications and services
= Application-driven IoT middleware
= Mobility and network connectivity in IoT applications
= Cloud and/or cloudlet support for IoT applications
= Machine learning, data mining and big data analytics
= Energy efficiency
= Security and privacy
= Experiences in developing and deploying operational IoT applications and
services

We invite technical papers describing original ideas, ground-breaking
results, and/or real-world experiences involving innovative IoT applications.
Successful submissions will elaborate one or multiple desirable properties
as follows: 1) Provide a quantitative analysis of outstanding systems
challenges highlighted by the application; 2) Have a quantitative estimate
of cost savings relative to the status quo; 3) Make a compelling case that
the application will be disruptive. Submissions will be judged on
originality, significance, clarity, relevance, and correctness. In addition
to citing relevant, published work, authors must cite and relate their
submissions to relevant prior publications of the their own.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Submitted papers must be no longer than 6 single-spaced 8.5" x 11" pages in
PDF format, including figures, tables, and references, two-column format,
using 10-point font and 1 inch margin. Please consider using the
sig-alternate-10pt.cls. Papers should not be anonymous. Papers that do not
meet the size, formatting, and anonymization requirements will not be
reviewed. Submitted papers must not be currently under review for any other
publication. Before submitting your paper, please check the description of
the conference scope. Accepted submissions will be available on the ACM
digital library at least one week before the conference. If you have any
questions, you can send e-mail to the PC chair atchenren@cs.cmu.edu.
