We invite you to submit proposals for one-day or half-day workshops to be run on the first day of the ECIR 2015
conference, the 29th of March 2015. ECIR workshops provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less
formal and possibly more focused way than the main conference. We therefore expect that the workshops
offer a common forum to engage and encourage researchers (especially PhD students and early career
researchers) to present and discuss their work, and to obtain valuable feedback in an interactive,
supportive and friendly environment. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the workshop’s
organisers. We are looking for exciting and dynamic workshops that have significant scope for
participant interaction. Researchers and practitioners from all segments of the information
retrieval community are invited to submit proposals for review. The organisers of approved workshops
are expected to define the workshop’s focus, gather and review submissions, and !
 decide upon the content of its programme. The organisers are also responsible for selecting the channels
for publishing the workshop proceedings.

[Dbworld] IEEE BigData 2014 Call for Doctoral Consortium

IEEE BigData 2014 Call for Doctoral Consortium

Overview

The IEEE International Conference on Big Data (IEEE BigData) to be held on Oct 27-30, Washington DC, USA
(http://cci.drexel.edu/bigdata/bigdata2014/index.htm) provides a leading forum for
disseminating the latest research, development, and applications in big data. The IEEE BigData 2014
Doctoral Consortium will provide doctoral students with the opportunity to have substantive
interaction with other researchers in this demanding field regarding their proposed dissertation research.

The objectives of the Doctoral Consortium are:
●	To give doctoral students a forum for presenting and discussing their research with experienced
researchers in the field of big data.
●	To provide students with an opportunity to establish a supportive community, including other
doctoral students at a similar stage of their dissertation research.

Mentoring

Each student participating in the Doctoral Consortium will be assigned a senior researcher, a leader in
the diverse specialties that make up the big data field, to serve as a mentor who will provide advice not
only on the substance of the research but also on career-related issues. The day of the Doctoral
Consortium will feature student presentations with plenary discussions, individual meetings with
experienced researchers, and interactive networking sessions over meals and breaks.

Financial Support

Thanks to generous funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF), we will be able to support all the
accepted students. Funds are requested for student travel awards to defray the cost of participation and
will be granted to Ph.D. students at U.S. Universities who attend the consortium.

Eligibility and Selection Criteria

The doctoral student symposium is aimed at Ph.D. students who are either in the early stages of formulating
a topic for their doctoral dissertations or are close to completing a thesis proposal (or equivalent).
The goal of the symposium is to provide early feedback that will improve the quality of their work. We will
give preference to students who are far enough from completing their thesis that the feedback they
receive at the event can impact their work. Before submitting, students should discuss this criterion
with their advisor or supervisor, who must write a short letter of support as part of the application.
Those accepted are required to attend the event in person.

Selection will be based upon the expected potential of both the student and their proposed work, as well as
the expected benefit to the student from participation. Priority will be given to students whose
research goes beyond locally available expertise at their home institutions. Special consideration
will be given to women and under-represented minorities.

Submission Guidelines

Required Materials. The application to participate in the doctoral student symposium must include:

     1. A solely-authored written paper (5 pages max) that will consist of:
    ●	An extended abstract summarizing the applicant’s Ph.D. research, including: Problem
description, background, and significance; novelty relative to the state of the art (related work and
their shortcomings); approach, data, methods; current results and future plans.
     ●	Applicant Curriculum Vitae.

     2. A one page appendix to the paper (placed after the references) that should include the following:
     ●	A statement by the student (half a page or less) explaining why they want to participate in the IEEE
BigData 2014 Doctoral Consortium at this point in their doctoral studies, and how they hope it will
contribute to the development of their work and potential future career.
     ●	A statement by their advisor / supervisor saying how the student would benefit by attending the
Consortium and explaining what particular expertise areas essential to the student's studies are not
available locally at the student's home institution. Advisors should also specifically state whether
the student has written, or is close to completing, a thesis proposal (or equivalent), and when they
expect the student would defend their dissertation if they progress at a typical rate.

Format Requirements. Submitted papers must be written in English, formatted according to IEEE Format
guidelines, and submitted as a single PDF file (embedding all required fonts). The paper should be no more
than 6 pages in length (including the one page appendix). The first page must contain the title of the
paper, full author name, affiliation and contact details, an abstract of up to 250 words, and up to 3
keywords describing the topic areas. 

Doctoral Consortium submissions must be submitted via the conference submission site. It is the
responsibility of the student to ensure that their submissions use no unusual format features and are
printable on a standard printer. 

Schedule
25 August 2014: Submissions due
15 September 2014: Acceptance notifications
27 October 2014: Doctoral Consortium

Doctoral Consortium Co-Chairs
●	Jingrui He (Stevens Institute of Technology)
●	Dimitrios Tsoumakos (Ionian University)

[Dbworld] OWLED 2014 - DEADLINE APPROACHING: JUL 30TH

APOLOGIES FOR MULTIPLE POSTINGS

11th OWL: Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED)
Riva del Garda, October 17th - 18th, 2014 co-located with ISWC 2014
http://www.w3.org/community/owled/workshop-2014/

DEADLINE APPROACHING!

Important Dates (All deadlines are Hawaii time)
	• Paper submission due: July 30, 2014
	• Acceptance notifications: September 5, 2014
	• Final papers due: September 18, 2014
	• OWLED workshop: 17-18 October, 2014

OWLED is now also a Community Group at the W3C. 
Everyone is invited to participate:http://www.w3.org/community/owled/ 

——————————————————————————————————————————————————

The aim of the OWL: Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED) is to establish an international forum for
the OWL community, where practitioners in industry and academia, tool developers and others interested
in OWL can describe real and potential applications, share experience and discuss requirements for
language extensions/modifications. OWL has become the representational model of choice for
supporting interoperability in many industries. This has been made possible thanks also to the
development of numerous OWL reasoning systems that efficiently deal with both intensional
(ontologies) and extensional (data) query answering. In this edition we aim to bridge the gap with the
reasoner evaluation community and welcome the submission of papers describing challenging ontologies
and/or tasks to be represented in OWL and processed by OWL reasoners. It also welcomes proposals for
improving the OWL 2 standard.

This year, we would like to invite submissions of the following types of papers:

Technical papers:  All submissions must be in English and be no longer than 12 pages (including
references). Papers that exceed this limit will be rejected without review.  These papers should present
research, implementation experience, and reports on the above and related topics. Space will be
reserved for authors to present their work at the workshop.

Short papers (4-6 pages, including references): These papers should present work that is in an early stage
and/or include publishable (novel) implemented systems that are of interest to the OWLED community; and
(in case of an implemented system), can be demonstrated at the workshop.

All submissions must be must be in PDF, and must adhere to the Springer LNCS style. For more details, see
Springer’s Author Instructions:
http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0. 

Papers can be submitted online using the Easychair Conference system: 

https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=owled2014

Papers related to any aspects of OWL and extensions, applications, theory, methods and tools, are
welcome. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

	- Application driven requirements for OWL
	- Applications of OWL, particularly
		- from industry or
		- for data integration
		- for service interoperability
		- for sophisticated/non-obvious inference
		- for knowledge discovery
	- and within specific domains such as
		- law
		- bio and biomed
		- eLearning
	- Experience of using OWL: notably, highly expressive ontologies or the OWL 2 Profiles
	- Evaluation of OWL tools e.g. reasoners
	- Benchmarks for OWL tools
	- Performance and scalability issues and improvements
	- Extensions to OWL
	- OWL and Rules
	- Implementation techniques and experience reports
	- Non-standard reasoning service (implementation and requirements for)
	- Explanation
	- Ontology comprehension and verbalisation
	- Multilingual OWL
	- Modelling issues
	- Tools, including editors, visualisation, parsers and syntax checkers
	- Collaborative editing of ontologies
	- Versioning of OWL ontologies
	- Alignment of OWL ontologies
	- Modularity
	- Query answering with OWL
	- SPARQL and OWL
	- Linked Data and OWL

[Dbworld] Interview with Jules J. Berman, former President of the Association for Pathology Informatics


Dear Colleagues,
I have interviewed Jules J. Berman, former President of the Association
for Pathology Informatics.

The focus of the interview is on how to manage Big Data.

Jules J. Berman: My own personal opinion is that data analysis is much less important than data
re-analysis. 
ItÕs hard for a data team to get things right on the very first try, and the team shouldnÕt be faulted for
their honest efforts. When everything is available for review, and when more data is added over time,
youÕll increase your chances of converging to someplace near the truth.

You can read the full text of the interview at the ODBMS Industry Watch.
