recognized as an autonomous city in 1307. From this date, the city was under the authority of the Burgundy
Duchy and Austrian Empire. In 1638, Belfort becomes a French city. After the war of 1871, France looses the
Alsace and Lorraine regions, except the city of Belfort for its outstanding defense. The statue of the
Lion of Belfort was made by Bartholdi to commemorate this event. Belfort is home to multiple academic
institutions, and where visitors can enjoy a variety of activities and entertainment. 

MobiSPC-2015 is co-organized & co-hosted by the University of Technology of Belfort-Montbeliard,
France. The University was created in 1999 from the fusion of two engineering schools. It is member of the

LATEST NEWS: PROFESSOR N. N. TALEB TO PARTICIPATE TO ANTIFRAGILE 2015 WITH A (REMOTE) KEYNOTE SPEECH !

Dear Madams, dear Sirs, 

this is to kindly invite you to consider submitting your articles to ANTIFRAGILE 2015,
the 2nd International Workshop on Computational Antifragility and Antifragile Engineering.

Resilience may be described as an intended emerging property resulting from the coupling of a system and
its environment(s). 
Depending on the interactions between these two "ends" and on the quality of the individual behaviors  that
both system
and environment(s) may exercise, different strategies may be chosen: 

- elasticity (preserving system identity by masking changes); 
- entelechism (guaranteeing the identity of the system by tolerating changes); 
- antifragility (adapting both the system and its identity so as to best fit the changing environment; and,
while doing so,
  learning how to manage "better" the adaptation processes).

The major focus of this workshop is computational and engineering aspects of antifragility, the term
recently introduced

[Dbworld] Deadline Extension: AAAI Spring Symposium 2015 - Structured Data for Humanitarian Technologies

Due to numerous requests we have extended the deadline and are now accepting submissions until Oct 31st, 2014.

=========================================================
CALL FOR PAPERS
AAAI 2015 Spring Symposium
Structured Data for Humanitarian Technologies: Perfect fit or Overkill?
March 23-25, 2015 • Palo Alto, California
http://www.knoesis.org/hemant/symposium/aaai2015
=========================================================

Technology is playing an increasingly important role in all aspects of humanitarian operations
including search and rescue, early warning, and coordination of relief logistics. However,
applications that support humanitarian operations often consume data stored in standalone databases,
or in spreadsheets requiring manual steps for data merging and management. Moreover, the data structure
is driven by schemas developed in isolation as opposed to ontological structures supported by the
community such as Humanitarian eXchange Language (HXL) and Management Of A Crisis (MOAC).
Consequently, the increasingly unorganized and scattered information becomes noise in the overall
system, slowing down decision making processes.

The goal of this symposium is to assess the role of Structured Data (SD) standards such as Linked Data, which
can be quickly reused, integrated and extended, in the humanitarian space. Using SD would permit
effective integration of and analysis over data generated by multiple parties, including informal
communities i.e. the "crowd" , relief organizations, and more formally by government agencies.
However, there are several important challenges that prevent its widespread adoption such as the lack of
data sources, lack of mature libraries, and lack of standards across different humanitarian sectors.
This symposium proposes to investigate the role of SD in the humanitarian relief domain. Is the
technology mature enough to warrant further investigation or do the disadvantages outweigh the utility
of SD for this domain?

The symposium will take place March 23-25, 2015. Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA, USA and will include a

[Dbworld] CFP - Special Issue on Crowdsourcing Geospatial Information (Geoinformatica Journal)

=========================================================================================
Special Issue on Crowdsourcing Geospatial Information - GeoInformatica Journal (Springer)
=========================================================================================

# CALL FOR PAPERS
Submission Deadline: December 8th, 2014
Link: http://goo.gl/gCqxVC

# Scope
The Internet in connection with smartphones and the sensor revolution continue to generate new data and
data types, new uses of data, as well as new applications. At the same time, the equations of the data
economy are being redefined as authorities continue to open up further their data repositories, whilst
at the same time individuals and online communities are generating valuable data and are increasingly
making them publicly available. Much of the generated data has a prominent geographic footprint and this
explosion of such volunteered geographic information (VGI) amounts to a massive expansion in our
ability to digitize the world. The domain that we aim to address with this special issue has been
characterized by terms such as “geographic information retrieval,”
“crowdsourcing,” “geospatial (semantic) Web,” “linked geospatial
data,” and “GeoWeb 2.0.”

# Topics of Interest
Papers submitted to this call could address the following research questions:
- How do we combine geospatial and Web data models and languages to model the geospatial data available in
the Web today? How do we express queries?
- How can linked data, semantics, ontologies, rules and associated reasoning techniques help?
- What data structures, algorithms and implemented systems are appropriate for the management of VGI?
What are appropriate benchmarks for the measuring the performance and comparing existing systems?
- How can we develop user interfaces for VGI? What are appropriate high‐level APIs that ease the rapid
development of such user interfaces? Can we build on already deployed platforms such as GoogleMaps,
BingMaps or OpenStreetMap?

[Dbworld] Deadline extension: CFP for Special Issue, International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks

Call-for-Papers

International Journal of Distributed Sensor Networks (IJDSN)

Special Issue on Advanced Big Data Management and Analytics for Ubiquitous Sensors

The convergence of pervasive sensing with location-aware and social
media technologies, along with infrastructure-based sensors, will lead
to the production and collection of "big data" in many areas such as
transportation, healthcare, and energy. The data may be structured or
unstructured, ranging from GPS trajectories to text, video, still
images, and others. This opens up new challenges and opportunities to
address the key aspects of sensor-based big data, namely, volume,
velocity, variety, and veracity.

This special issue aims to foster the dissemination of knowledge for
advanced issues in big data management and analytics for ubiquitous
sensors. It will also include a number of related topics such as
distributed/parallel processing of streaming data, privacy protection
and security issues in sensor-based big data, and data fusion
techniques for distributed big data. This special issue will be an
open international forum for researchers to summarize their latest
research results. Potential topics include but not limited to:

- Distributed/parallel processing for sensor-based, streaming big data
- Sensor-based big data management
- Data fusion for sensor-based, distributed big data
- Advanced analysis and mining techniques for sensor-based big data
- Efficient indexing and content retrieval for sensor-based big data
- Programming models for sensor-based big data processing
