                           Call for Papers

  Middle-European Conference on Applied Theoretical Computer Science
                             (MATCOS-19)

                      *** EXTENDED DEADLINE ***

            Koper, Slovenia, October 10th and 11th, 2019.
                       http://matcos.iam.upr.si

                       Held in conjunction with
          the 22nd Multi-Conference on Information Society,
   October 7th-11th, 2019, Ljubljana, Slovenia. (http://is.ijs.si)

Scope and Topics
----------------

During  the  past years,  other  fields  have used several  subjects,
methods and  approaches of  Theoretical Computer Science, and several
results have  been integrated  into practical applications. Solutions
for NP-hard  problems, algorithmic-oriented  AI and data science, new
models  and methods  in  system biology  and bioinformatics,  automata
theory  approaches in  software and  hardware verification,  practical
quantum computing  solutions and the development  of other prospective
new  models of  computation are  good examples  to buttress  the above
statement.

We set double aims  as the scope of this conference:  on one hand side
we expect ideas  and solutions from the field  of Theoretical Computer
Science   which   have   been   directly   applied   in real   world
applications. On the other side we want to collect theoretical results
based on some fruitful idea that  may be useful to adopt for practical
problems.

Suggested, but not exclusive, topics of interest include:
- Automata and formal languages, computability,
- Algorithms and data structures,
- Computational complexity,
- Artificial intelligence, machine learning,
- Optimization, approximation methods, NP-hard problems,
- Graph theory,
- Computational geometry.

There is a special emphasis on use in applications such as simulation,
bioinformatics,  digital signal  and image  processing, data  science,
digital forensics, logistics, smart homes/cities and IoT etc.

[DMANET] TeCrop 2019 CFP: The International Workshop on Technology for Precision Agriculture and Crops, Granada, Spain. October 22-25, 2019

*[Please accept our apologies if you receive multiple copies of this email]*

The International Workshop on Technology for Precision Agriculture and
Crops (TeCrop 2019)

http://jlloret.webs.upv.es/tecrop2019/

*in conjunction with*

*The Sixth International Conference on Internet of Things: Systems,
Management and Security (IoTSMS 2019)*


*Granada, Spain. October 22-25, 2019*

*Call for Papers:*

Precision agriculture is becoming as one of the most important tool to
satisfy the ever-increasing worldwide demand for food products of good
quality. Agriculture needs to be enhanced by new technologies in order to
make it sustainable in a smart way. In the last few years, several Internet
of Things (IoT)-based products dedicated to farming have appeared, but
there are still some remaining issues, ranging from data acquisition,
interpretation, and reliable collection in some potentially harsh radio
environments. The last few decades have witnessed the advancement of the
IoT and multiple wireless sensor networks (WSNs), in both the academic and
industrial worlds

The use of IoT platform and Remote Sensing Data (RSD) to schedule
irrigation and fertilization and predict yield may contribute to a more
sustainable agriculture in regions of the Mediterranean where irrigation
and fertilization are not optimized in terms of timing and quantity. IoT
platforms allow a network of devices to communicate, gather data and
process information collaboratively in the service of individuals or
processes. Technologies can help farmers to practice a more sustainable
agriculture, minimizing risks of losing the harvest by providing the
resources (water irrigation and fertilizer) needed to secure yield and at
the adequate periods. In addition, prediction of grain yield via RSD has
additional applications. Remote Sensing Data may help to yield forecasts
before harvest and therefore to predict farmers income. Furthermore, the
use of software programs is indispensable for the interpretation of the
data derived from the Remote Sensing Technologies and then to make
decisions of applications in crop fields.

In this workshop, researchers are encouraged to submit papers focused on on
high quality, up-to-date innovative original current advances in solutions
and research for smart and sustainable agriculture, ranging from IoT, WSN,
efficient sensing, cloud/edge computing, smart actuators, etc.

*Topics of interest *
==============
Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not
under review in any other conference or journal, including, but are not
limited to, the following topic areas:
· Sensor network deployment for smart agriculture

· Internet of Things (IoT) for agriculture

· Farm services and oriented applications for agri-food systems

· Cost-effective sensor development for agriculture

· Cloud computing for agriculture

· Smart applications for crops monitoring and management

· Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for agriculture

*Call for papers*
Conversation is an essential social activity for humans. Intelligent
systems that can handle natural language are actually deployed on personal
or home devices or embedded in humanoid robots, and try to enable social
interactions between computers and humans in order to assist, enable, or
entertain. Even though they have significantly improved their abilities in
recognizing and synthetizing speech, they often fail to meet expectations
of having a real dialogue with humans. Indeed, they essentially try to
provide a more or less adequate imitation of how humans converse, bringing
the interlocutor into stereotyped conversations, but without developing
real understanding of language or learning and using robust and meaningful
representations of physical concepts, objects and events of the external
world.

This workshop is intended to provide an overview of the research being
carried out in the areas of Cognitive and Neural systems designed to
acquire capabilities for language learning, understanding, production and

[DMANET] Doctoral Course on Simulation Modeling for Business Research

Doctoral Course on Simulation Modeling for Business Research


>From October 7 to 10, the German VHB (German Academic Association for
Business Research) is offering a ProDok-Workshop for doctoral students on
"Simulation Modelling for Business Research" The course will be taught by
Catherine Cleophas (Christian-Albrechts-University
Kiel). Please find more information here:

https://vhbonline.org/veranstaltungen/prodok/kurse-2019/1910ms03/

Business research increasingly considers wicked problems and complex
dynamic systems. Analytical models of such problems and systems quickly
become untraceable and unsolvable. Given increasing computational power,
simulation models provide an alternative tool. They can fuel studies
tracing the long-term evolution of systems and comparing the outcomes of
alternative scenarios. However, successfully applying simulation modelling
for business research requires expertise on applicable simulation
paradigms, approaches to model validation and the analysis of stochastic
results.

Interested potential participants can sign up until September 8, 2019, via
the electronic sign-up system found here:
https://vhbonline.org/en/events/the-phd-program/registration-participation-payment/or
via email to prodok@vhbonline.org. Note that there is a participation fee
as stated on the linked website.

Management and Security (IoTSMS 2019)*

*Granada, Spain. October 22-25, 2019*

*Call for Papers:*

Hardware systems and Software applications continue to evolve with more
functionalities, complex structures and interactions between them and with
users. Cyber Security risks continue to evolve as well in both quantities
in the same domains as well new types and ways on how to break into
computing systems, software applications, websites, databases, programmable
networks etc. For example, monitoring the car manufacturing industry, we
can see that recent car models have more complex hardware components and
automated programmable features in comparison with their earlier models,
this will increase the risk associated with protecting such systems. Same
thing can be applicable to most other engineering products. Such complex
hardware and programmable techniques bring security opportunities to change
the way cyber security controls (e.g. firewalls, Intrusion Detection
Systems (IDS), etc.) are developed and enforced. They also bring security
challenges related to our computing systems and software architectures or
any changes that can be directly or indirectly related to them due to the
complex interactions between them. The 2nd International Symposium on
Future Cyber Security Technologies (FCST 2019) will focus on issues related
to future cyber security challenges as well as opportunities which mainly
highlight the above mentioned aspects.

The 2nd IEEE International Symposium on Future Cyber Security Technologies
(FCST 2019) will be a forum for scientists, researchers, students, and
practitioners to present their latest research results, ideas,
developments, and applications in the areas of cyber security techniques,
security challenges and opportunities for emerging technologies such as
cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT) and Edge Computing, big data, 5G,
SDN and many others. We are mainly interested in receiving state of the art
work on different aspect of future cyber security management system,
security and privacy, cloud computing and big data supported security
systems to mention but few.
