[Dbworld] Final CFP - HaCDAIS 2011: The 2nd International Workshop on Handling Concept Drift at ICDM 2011

Apologies for possible cross posting. 
The hard deadline for submission to HaCDAIS workshop is this Friday, the 5th of August.

                    Call for Papers:
  HaCDAIS 2011:  The 2nd International Workshop on
   Handling Concept Drift in Adaptive Information Systems
               organized at IEEE ICDM 2011
         December 10, 2011 - Vancouver, Canada.
           http://wwwis.win.tue.nl/hacdais2011/
===============================================================
AIM and SCOPE
===============================================================
The objective of the workshop is to provide a forum for
discussion of recent advances in handling concept drift in
adaptive information systems, and to offer an opportunity for
researchers and practitioners to identify and discuss recent
advances and new promising research directions.

In the real world data is often non stationary. In predictive
analytics, machine learning and data mining the phenomenon of
unexpected change in underlying data over time is known as
concept drift. Thus the learning models need to be adaptive to
the changes.

The problem of concept drift is of increasing importance to
machine learning and data mining as more and more data is
organized in the form of data streams rather than static
databases. Different approaches for detecting and handling
concept drift have been proposed, and many of them have already

Over the last two decades, many organizations and individuals have relied on electronic collaboration
between distributed teams of humans, computer applications, and/or autonomous robots to achieve
higher productivity and produce joint products that would have been impossible to develop without the
contributions of multiple collaborators. Technology has evolved from standalone tools, to open
systems supporting collaboration in multi-organizational settings, and from general purpose tools to
specialized collaboration grids. Future collaboration solutions that fully realize the promises of
electronic collaboration require advancements in networking, technology and systems, user
interfaces and interaction
paradigms, and interoperation with application-specific components and tools.

[Dbworld] Postdoc Position in Risk Analytics and High Performance Computing

====================================================
Postdoctoral Fellowships in Risk Analytics and 
High Performance Computing (HPC)
====================================================

Applications are invited for Postdoctoral Fellowships
(renewable) and funded graduate studies positions in 
Risk Analytics and High Performance Computing
(HPC) under the supervision of Dr. Andrew Rau-Chaplin from
Faculty of Computer Science at Dalhousie University.

The research focuses on two intertwined themes, namely, the
design of 1) scenario-based catastrophic risk models and 2)
analytical systems for the management and analysis of
portfolios of catastrophic risk. Candidates with one or more of
the following research interests are encouraged to apply: 1)
Catastrophe Modeling for Wind, Earthquake or Flood Risk, or 2)
Mathematical Modeling, Simulation, and Optimization, or 3) High
Performance Computing - Applications for Clusters and Clouds

*****Qualifications*****
Successful candidates for the Post Doctoral postions will 
hold a recent Ph.D. in Computer Science, Mathematics, 
Statistics, Engineering, or a related science. 
They will have experience working on modeling,
stochastic simulation, optimization, or HPC oriented projects,
and strong algorithm design, implementation, and evaluation
skills. We are seeking individuals who can bring strong
technical skills and enthusiasm to an area of research ripe for
innovation and who will be able to integrate well into a larger
team. Knowledge of reinsurance or risk analytics is not
required. Of key importance is a candidate's willingness and
ability to come up the learning curve quickly in areas she or
he has not been previously exposed to.

*****Industrial Connection*****
These positions are made possible in large part by FlagstoneRe,
a global reinsurance company that focuses on specialty and
property catastrophe reinsurance. The postdoctoral fellows will
work closely with the supervisor (Dr. Rau-Chaplin), and members
of FlagstoneRe's research, analytics, and HPC teams. Flagstone
Re values highly motivated individuals with strong team spirit
and high research standards who can balance theoretical
concerns and practical issues.

*****Timeline and Application Procedures*****
These positions are open immediately. The initial contract is
one year with possible extension. Applicants should send a full
Curriculum Vitae, letters from two referees and a cover letter
highlighting their prior achievements and a brief summary of
their statement of their interest and experience in this area.
Electronic submissions are encouraged. Applicants are strongly
encouraged to contact Andrew Rau-Chaplin as early as possible
to express interest and to ask any questions. Applications will
be considered until the positions are filled.
