[DMANET] PhD position at LIMOS CNRS Lab Clermont-Ferrand (France) in Operations Research

The LIMOS UMR CNRS 6158 is seeking for a good PhD candidate for a 3 years position in Clermont-Ferrand (France).

Research topic: Scheduling and routing of tasks in the context of healthcare system management

PhD advisors: Philippe Lacomme, Thierry Garaix and Christophe Duhamel
Contact: Philippe Lacomme <placomme@isima.fr>
Garaix Thierry <garaix@emse.fr>
Christophe Duhamel <christophe.duhamel@isima.fr>
Salary : about 34 000 € per year
Lab: LIMOS UMR CNRS 6158
(Université Clermont-Ferrand and jointly Mines Saint Etienne)
Starting dates: as soon as possible and before September 2019
Duration: 3 years position at the University of Clermont-Ferrand jointly at the EMSE (Ecole des Mines de Saint-Etienne). Funding received from the National Research Agency (ANR).

Context :
Research teams of EMSE Saint-Etienne (Ecole des Mines de Saint-Etienne) and of the University of Clermont-Ferrand received funding from the ANR for a research program relative to scheduling and routing integrated problems. Routing and scheduling problems are very common especially in healthcare system management and services at home which will provide our test bed cases:
- Medical staff management;
- Resource management including scheduling of operating rooms and ambulances for example;
- Management of transport for patient or customer from their current position to hospital, or for nurse-to-patient transport;
The problems to solve are of considerable interest for a practical point of view and require efficient methods to address large scale instances. Real life data could be provided by a service at home partner.
The challenging problem come from both the different objectives of patients/health-care staff and the coordination/synchronization between the schedules of different resources. In addition, some freelance workers have to be managed in a fair and profitable way.

Scientific objectives:
Mono-period problems with deterministic demands and resource availabilities will focus the first research step:
1. The first work will be the design of metaheuristic dedicated to planning and coordination of routing staff and patient care schedules;
2. The second step could be to ensure economic equity as regards of external staff;
3. The next step could be directed to multi-period problems where the long term quality of services could be optimized for staff, patients and the service provider company.

Required skills:
* Motivated candidates should hold a Master in optimization or a diploma from a high school in computer science * Solid background in algorithmic * Good programming skills with C/C++

[DMANET] [CFP] IEEE INFOCOM CAOS 2019: ** final deadline January 24 **

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

IEEE CAOS 2019

The First IEEE INFOCOM Workshop on the
Communications and Networking Aspects of Online Social Networks

April 29, 2019 - Paris, France


*** FINAL submission deadline: January 24, 2019 ***


+++ Fast-track publication of selected papers in Online Social Networks
and Media Journal (Elsevier)

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

Online Social Networks (OSNs) are a multidisciplinary research
playground. On the one hand, they represent a challenging environment
for researchers working in academia and industry to develop the next
generation of networking platforms and their services. At the same time,
the digital footprints that people leave behind through OSNs provide a
unique source to investigate and understand (by exploiting BigData
analytics) people's behavior, human relationships, and societal
phenomena such as epidemics spreading, terrorist networks, the diffusion
of opinions, the pulse of a city, the evolution of migrations, etc.

IEEE CAOS focuses on (i) understanding the behavior of OSN systems, and
OSN users; (ii) designing OSN mechanisms, services and applications for
the benefit of users, (iii) controlling the use, and possibly, misuse of
OSN services; (iv) predicting the way information spreads in OSN and
users acquire or lose importance and influence in their local and global
communities.

CAOS aims to provide a reference forum targeted not only to the
community of researcher working on networking technologies for OSN, but
it aims at engaging a multidisciplinary community of researchers working
at the intersection between computer networking, complex networks, Big
Data analytics, focusing on network technologies and abstractions for
OSN. Therefore, the workshop also welcomes submissions applying a wide
range of (computer- and network-science) techniques and tools to OSN for
investigating the properties and roles of the network of (online) social
relationships in the various sectors of the society (e.g., politics,
economics, finance, health, entertainment).

Topics include, but are not limited to:

- Communications challenges in OSNs;
- Platforms, protocols, and applications for OSNs;
- Decentralized, mobile, and location-based OSNs;
- Trust, reputation, privacy, and security in OSNs;
- Adversarial-aware analysis of OSN data;
- Dynamics of trends, information and opinion diffusion in OSNs;
- Recommendations and advertising in OSNs;
- Social Search in OSNs;
- Measurement, analysis, and modeling of popular online social networks;
- BigData analysis of OSNs seen as complex networked systems;
- Information extraction and search in OSNs;
- Complex-network analysis of OSNs;
- Measurement, analysis, and modeling of networked users' behavior
through OSNs data;
- Analysis of the use of OSNs in the urban context;
- Network challenges of crowdsourcing in OSNs;
- Network challenges in multidisciplinary applications of OSNs
(economics, medicine, society, politics, homeland security, etc.);
- AI technologies applied to OSNs modeling and analysis.


## PAPER FORMAT AND SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files, formatted for
8.5x11-inch paper. The length of the paper must be no more than 6 pages
(+2 extra pages with over-length charge of $100/page) in the IEEE

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

DCOSS 2019 is the 15th International Conference on Distributed Computing
in Sensor Systems to be hosted on Santorini Island in Greece, in May
29-31, 2019. In the last few years, we have witnessed a significant
growth in the use of distributed sensor systems in a number of
application areas, ranging from smart transport, energy and buildings,
to factory automation, smart healthcare and environmental monitoring. In
order for smart sensor systems to truly become useful and pervasive, we
need to address a number of research challenges, including the tight
integration of sensing and machine intelligence, reliable and efficient
networking, interoperability and scalability, the need for dependable
autonomy, interaction with humans, and important aspects of security,
privacy and trust. DCOSS focuses on distributed information processing
issues arising in networked sensor systems, covering aspects of high
level abstractions, models and languages, novel algorithms and
applications, system design approaches and architectures, as well as
tools for simulated and real deployments.

Potential authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts
that demonstrate recent advances in both theoretical and experimental
research. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the
following:

- Edge and fog computing: distributed computing models from sensor to
cloud
- Energy harvesting models and optimization
- Machine intelligence in distributed sensor systems and real time
analytics
- Communication and networking primitives and protocols
- Autonomy: closing the loop between sensing and actuation
- Task allocation, reprogramming, and reconfiguration
- Robustness, resilience and dependability
- Security and privacy issues
- Approaches, tools, and experience of deployment and operation
- Performance analysis: complexity, correctness, scalability
- Mobile and human-centered sensing
- Interoperability, heterogeneity and scalability
- Crowd sensing and social sensing techniques, applications, and systems
- Complex systems comprising wearable, robotic and/or fixed sensor
systems
- Novel and compelling applications

AACHEN
Aachen is a historic city in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany, at the
point where Germany borders on Belgium and the Netherlands.
Historically this spa-town was a prominent city, the place where the
German Kings were crowned, and the residence of Charlemagne who still
lies buried in the impressive cathedral he himself had built. The city
has many historical sites that remind of those days, including
medieval buildings, city gates, and beautiful fountains. Aachen is
Germany's westernmost city. It lies near the borders with Belgium and
the Netherlands and is nestled between the large national parks of the
Eifel and the Ardennes. The city has a population of 260,000, which
includes about 50,000 students and more than 4,000 academic staff from
across the world. Its lively student community lends the city just as
much character as its history. Aachen is famous for its Printen
gingerbread, its hot springs, its Mardi Gras carnival and one of the
world's largest equestrian tournaments. The historic city center and a
wealth of bars, cafes, and restaurants, combined with the nearby
nature parks, such as the Eifel, make Aachen a city where everyone
feels at home. The venue of the conference, the Tivoli football
stadium, is located on the border of the city center. This beautiful
venue will provide a unique atmosphere with great views and excellent
conference facilities.
