[Dbworld] Second Call for Papers: 2nd International Workshop on Executable Modeling (EXE 2016)

------------------------------------------------------------------------
Second Call for Papers:
2nd International Workshop on Executable Modeling (EXE 2016)
co-located with MODELS 2016
October 3, 2016, Saint-Malo, France
http://www.modelexecution.org/exe2016
------------------------------------------------------------------------

We are pleased to invite you to submit papers to the Second International Workshop on Executable Modeling
(EXE 2016), held in conjunction with the ACM/IEEE 19th International Conference on Model Driven
Engineering Languages and Systems (MODELS) at Saint-Malo, France, on October 3, 2016.

---------------------------
Scope and Topics
---------------------------
The complexity of modern software systems, time-to-market pressures, and the need for high quality
software are current challenges faced by the software industry. To address these challenges,
model-driven engineering (MDE) advocates the elevation of models into the center of the development
process. Models provide abstractions over the system to be developed, while also providing enough
detail to automate the development of implementation artifacts and perform early software analysis. 
In this context, executable models become more and more important. Executable models provide
abstractions of a system’s behavior and constitute the basis for performing early analyses of that
behavior. The ability to analyze a system’s behavior early in its development has the potential to
turn executable models into important assets of a model-driven software development process.
Despite the potential benefits of executable models, there are still many challenges to solve, such as the
lack of maturity in the definition of and tooling for executable modeling languages, and the limited
experience with executable modeling in much of the software development industry. EXE 2016 will provide
a forum for researchers and practitioners to discuss these challenges and propose potential solutions,
as well as to assess and advance the state-of-the-art in this area.

GOALS
Due to the availability of high-throughput platforms (e.g. next generation sequencing, microarray and
mass spectrometry) and clinical diagnostic tools (e.g. medical imaging), a recent trend in
Bioinformatics and Biomedicine is the increasing production of experimental and clinical data.
Considering the complex analysis pipeline of the biomedical research, the bottleneck is more and more
moving toward the storage, integration, and analysis of experimental data, as well as their correlation
and integration with publicly available data banks.

[Dbworld] Special Issue on Sensor Data Computing as a Service in Internet of Things

CALL FOR PAPERS
Special Issue on Sensor Data Computing as a Service in Internet of Things
IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing
Second Issue 2017 (June Issue)
The internet-of-things (IoT) has gained signi?cant attention over the past decade. It “allows people
and  things to be anytime, anyplace, with anything and anyone, ideally using any path/ network and any
service." Sensor data computing as a service model (also called sensing as a service) envisions to o?er
sensor data to interested consumers on demand. It will provide access to sensors or sensor data as a
service similar to other utility-based models such as infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS),
platform-as-a-service (PaaS), and software-as-a-service (SaaS). Sensor data computing as a service
model is also expected to be on top of an  IoT infrastructure and creates novel business and ?nancial
opportunities to increase the sustainability of IoT. The number of things connected to the internet
exceeded the number of people on earth in 2008. By 2020, there will be 50 to 100 billion devices connected to
the internet, ranging from smartphones, pcs, and ATMs to manufacturing equipmen!
 t in factories and products in shipping containers. It has been estimated that every individual on earth
will have more than six devices connected to the  internet by 2020. The sensory  data these object produce
have signi?cant value to many di?erent parties from supply chain management to healthcare services.
Sensor data computing as a service model allows interested parties to buy data from an open market. Sensor
data computing as a service model needs to be supported by wide range of sensing and communication
technologies. Majority of these sensor data will come from the internet connected smart objects. This
special issue will comprise a state of the art research ?nding related sensor data computing as a service
model. This feature will include board range of technologies that involve in deploying and capturing
sensor data to processing them in the cloud to deliver them to interested consumers on demand.
All the articles should address the challenges in sensor Data Computing as a Service model explicitly.
Topics of interests include (but are not limited to):
• Sensor data computing as a service architectures, platforms, and middleware
• IoT infrastructure to support sensor data computing as a service
• Real-time sensor data analysis
• Sensor data management, processing and analysis
• Naming, address management and end-to-end addressability

[Dbworld] 6th CFP: Deadline June 30th 2016-pecial Issue on Fuzzy Approaches for Handling Big Data (Fuzzy Sets


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

[Apologies if you receives multiple copies of this CFP] 
***************************************************************************************
Fuzzy Sets & Systems (FSS) (http://www.journals.elsevier.com/fuzzy-sets-and-systems/)
  Call for Papers for a Special Issue on Fuzzy Approaches forÊ Handling Big Data ********************************************************************************


Guest Editors: 
Prof. Sadok BEN YAHIA, Faculty of Sciences of Tunis, Tunisia 
Prof. Anne LAURENT, University of Montpellier, France
Prof. Gabriella PASI, University of Milano, Italy

Scope and Topics:

Big data is often referred to as being related to the paradigms of the 4V (Volume, Variety, Velocity,
Veracity). Huge data sets require ad hoc computational approaches to be managed and analyzed. Besides
the efficiency issue related to their dimensions, there is the important and complex issue of mining
useful information from data.

Several are the scientific challenges associated with big data, ranging from data capture, storage,
sharing, modeling, analysis, and visualization. Among the complex aspects to be addressed there is the
integration across heterogeneous, interdependent complex data resources for real-time analytics and
decision making. 

This special issue aims to publish selected research articles presenting fuzzy logic based techniques in
the emerging field of Big Data. More specifically, it seeks for contributions standing at the cross-road
of theory and applications of fuzzy techniques in Big Data, including:
