[Dbworld] Postdoctoral Fellowships at the Database Systems and Information Management Group at TU Berlin

IPODI Fellowship Opportunities at TU Berlin 

2nd CALL FOR APPLICATIONS OPEN UNTIL 15 DECEMBER 2014

The International Post-Doc Initiative (IPODI) at the Technische Universität Berlin (TUB) will award
twenty-one two-year fellowships between 2013-2018 to female researchers in three open calls. The
second call for applications is now open with applications being accepted up until December 15, 2014.
IPODI is part of an initiative (Wissenschaftlerinnen an die Spitze) that aims to increase the number of
women in leadership positions. IPODI is currently seeking applications from outstanding female
researchers, regardless of their nationality or age, who are involved in fields of research represented
at TU Berlin. The TUB Database Systems and Information Management (DIMA) Group welcomes IPODI
applicants interested in conducting R&D in Data Management and Information Systems. They will be
offered a unique opportunity to engage and collaborate with researchers, not only in the DIMA Group, but
also with (the forthcoming) Berlin Big Data Center (BBDC) research partners at the German R!
 esearch Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), the Zuse-Institute Berlin (ZIB), and the Fritz Haber
Institute (FHI) of the Max Planck Society. The goal will be to jointly design, build, apply, and evaluate a
large-scale analytics system that is capable of conducting deep data analysis on huge, heterogeneous,
high-velocity datasets. We plan to conduct research that will lay the foundation for automatic
optimization and processing of iterative data analysis programs in a massively parallel,
fault-tolerant way, build scalable machine learning and data analysis algorithms, and apply them in
varying domains, including material sciences, healthcare, and information marketplaces. We intend to
evaluate our research jointly with other research institutions and companies in real-world
application settings. Furthermore, our results will be made available open-source. Applicants should
have completed a PhD in Database Systems and have the zeal to work in a leading research environm!
 ent at the forefront of technology innovation, interested in b!
 uilding systems and putting research results into practical use. Ideally, you have specialized in the
area of data management, during your PhD studies, with additional skills in large-scale data
processing, programming languages and compilers, distributed systems, parallel programming, and/or
benchmarking and system evaluation, documented by a strong publication record. A good knowledge of the
Hadoop ecosystem, as well as parallel database implementation skills will be useful. Moreover, a good

[Dbworld] CFP: Journal of Web Semantics special issue on geospatial semantics

The Journal of Web Semantics seeks submissions for a special issue on
geospatial semantics (http://bit.ly/jwsCFPgs) edited by Yolanda Gil
and Raphaël Troncy. Submissions are due by January 31, 2015.

Geospatial reasoning has an increasingly larger scope in the
semantic web. More and more information is geolocated, more
mobile devices produce geocoded records, and more web mashups are
created to convey geospatial information. Semantics can enable
automated integration of geospatial information, and track the
provenance of the data shown to an end user. Semantics can also
improve visualizations and querying of geospatial data. Semantics
can also support crowdsourcing of geospatial data, particularly
to track identity through name and property changes over
time. Several recent workshops on geospatial semantics have
emphasized the interest in the community on these topics. Of note
are workshops organized by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)
and the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) indicating a strong
interest in standardization efforts in geospatial semantics. This
special issue aims to synthesize the recent trends in research
and practice in the area of geospatial semantics.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  * Combining semantic information with more traditional
    representations and standards for geospatial data
  * Exploiting semantics to enhance visualizations of geospatial
    information
  * Use of semantics to support geospatial data integration and
    conflation
  * Semantic mashups of geospatial data
