Synopsis: With advances in remote sensors, sensor networks, and the proliferation of location sensing devices in daily life activities and common business practices, the generation of disparate, dynamic, and geographically distributed spatiotemporal data has exploded in recent years. In addition, significant progress in ground, air- and space-borne sensor technologies has led to an unprecedented access to earth science data for scientists from different disciplines, interested in studying the complementary nature of different parameters. These developments are quickly leading towards a data-rich but information-poor environment. The rate at which geospatial data are being generated clearly exceeds our ability to organize and analyze them to extract patterns critical for understanding in a timely manner a dynamically changing world. Computer science and geoinformatics are collaborating in order to address these scientific and computational challenges and provide innovative and effective solutions.

More specifically, efficient and reliable data mining techniques are needed for extracting useful geoinformation from large heterogeneous, often multi-modal spatiotemporal datasets. Traditional data mining techniques are ineffective as they do not incorporate the idiosyncrasies of the spatial domain, which include (but are not limited to) spatial autocorrelation, spatial context, and spatial constraints. Extracting useful geoinformation from several terabytes of streaming multi-modal data per day also demands the use of modern computing in all its forms. Thus, we invite all researchers and practioners to participate in this event and share, contribute, and discuss the emerging challenges in spatial and spatiotemporal data mining.

Topics: The major topics of interest to the workshop include but are not limited to:

  •     Theoretical foundations of spatial and spatiotemporal data mining
  •     Spatial and spatiotemporal analogues of interesting patterns: frequent itemsets, clusters, outliers, and the algorithms to mine them
  •     Spatial classification: methods that explicitly model spatial context
  •     Spatial and spatiotemporal autocorrelation and heterogeneity, its quantification and
  •     efficient incorporation into the data mining algorithms
  •     Image (multispectral, hyperspectral, aerial, radar) information mining, change detection
  •     Role of uncertainty in spatial and spatiotemporal data mining
  •     Integrated approaches to multi-source and multimodal data mining
  •     Resource-aware techniques to mine streaming spatiotemporal data
  •     Spatial and spatiotemporal data mining at multiple granularities (space and time)
  •     Data structures and indexing methods for spatiotemporal data mining
  •     Spatial and Spatiotemporal online analytical processing, data warehousing
  •     Geospatial Intelligence
  •     Climate Change, Natural Hazards, Critical Infrastructures
  •     High-performance SSTDM
  •     Applications that demonstrate success stories of spatial and spatiotemporal data mining

Proceedings: Accepted papers will be included in a ICDM Workshop Proceedings volume, to be published by IEEE Computer Society Press, which will also be included in the IEEE Digital Library.

Paper Submission: This is an open call-for-papers. We invite both full papers (max 8 pages) describing mature work and short papers (max 6 pages) describing work-in-progress or case studies. Only original and high-quality papers conforming to the ICDM 2016 standard guidelines will be considered for this workshop.

[Dbworld] CFP 3rd EAI International Conference on Safety and Security in Internet of Things

Call for Paper

3rd EAI International Conference on Safety and Security in IoT


26-28 November, 2016 
Paris, France

The infrastructure of large cities is getting more and more vulnerable to natural and man-made disasters.
Complex ICT infrastructures, critical dependencies and unforeseen cascading effects can aggra-vate
single hazard events to a threatening crisis of whole infrastruc-tures. With the dense population and
the critical dependency on infrastructures, such crises become a serious threat to the safety and
security of citizens and industries. When the "unforeseen" happens, public security comes to its
limits. Whether cyber, natural or industrial disasters - effective risk management must be a
contin-uous process that recognizes new threats and opportunities, in par-ticular in relation to new
technological evolutions.
Internet of Things (IoT) will have an enormous impact on our future infrastructures. In the context of
safety and security this is at the same time a challenge (How can we design IoT infrastructures se-cure and
resilient?) and an opportunity (How can we use IoT for better safety and security?).
In particular, in urban environments, the increasing deployments of IoT technologies and the rise of
sensored and automated cities are opening up new avenues of threads and opportunities towards pub-lic
safety and security. Although, there have been a number of de-ployment of diverse IoT systems, our
understanding of these sys-tems and their implications in the context of safety and security has just
scratched the surface.

Potential topics of interest, which can be investigated from different perspectives (social,
organizational, technological) include, but are not limited to, the fol-lowing application domains:

•  Ensuring the resilience and security of IoT dependent infrastructures

- Models, methods and tools for testing IoT infrastruc-tures
- Design of resilient IoT infrastructures
- Detection, prevention, response and mitigation of cyber threats to IoT
- Trust and identity management in IoT
- Security protocols in IoT
- Risk analysis and management for IoT infrastructures
- Threat modeling in IoT

•    Using IoT for crisis and emergency management

- IoT for threat and hazard detection
- IoT for situation-awareness
- IoT for crisis and emergency response
- IoT for command & control
- IoT for emergency forces

•    Privacy in IoT
•    Security and IoT Cloudification

•	The event is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading community-based
organization devoted to the ad-vancement of innovation in the field of ICT.
•	All accepted papers will be submitted for publication in Springer and made available through
SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries.
•	Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing services: Elsevier (EI), Thomson
Scientific (ISI), Scopus, Crossref, Google Scholar, DBLP.

[Dbworld] CfP 9th Workshop on Social and Human Aspects of Business Process Management

The 9th Workshop on Social and Human Aspects of 
Business Process Management (BPMS2'16)

September 19, 2016 Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia
Call for Papers
Deadline for workshop paper submissions: June 6th, 2016
Workshop Theme
The involvement of human aspects into Business Process Management takes place both on a social and
individual level. Social software is a new paradigm that is spreading quickly in society, organizations
and economics. Enterprises use social software to improve their business processes and create new
business models. Social software is used both in internal and external business processes. Using social 
software, the communication with the customer is increasingly bi-directional. E.g. companies
integrate customers into product development to capture ideas for new products and features. Social
software also creates new possibilities to enhance internal business processes by improving the
exchange of knowledge and information, to speed up decisions, etc.

In parallel to the fact that more and more enterprises are using business process management also the
individual is involved in a multitude of business processes. This creates a number of new challenges. 
Individuals have to cope with multiple process contexts and thus have to administer data appropriately.
Furthermore, individuals have to integrate the external business processes into their own work
environment or even to couple several external business processes. Human aspects of business process
management relate to the individual who creates a process model, to the communication among people,
during and after the process execution, and to the social process of collaborative modeling. Human
aspects also relate to the interaction / collaboration / coordination / cooperation that should be
implemented in the business process or to specific human-related aspects of the business process itself
and their representations in models.
Up to now, the interaction of social and human aspects with business processes has not been investigated in
depth. Therefore, the objective of the workshop is to explore how social software interacts with
business process management, how business process management has to change to comply with weak ties,
social production, egalitarianism and mutual service, and how business processes may profit from these
The workshop will discuss three topics. Social Business Process Management, Social Business and Human
Aspects of Business Process Management. Social Business Process Management is the use of social
software to support one or multiple phases of the business process life cycle.

1.	Social Business Process Management (SBPM)
-	Which phases of the BPM lifecycle (Design, Deployment, Operation, and Evaluation) can profit the most
by social software?
-	Do we need new BPM methods and/or paradigms to cope with social software?
-	Is there an influence of weak ties, social production, egalitarianism and mutual service provisioning
on BPM methods themselves?
-	How are trust and reputation established in business processes using social software?
-	How do weak ties, social production, egalitarianism and mutual service provisioning influence the
design of business processes?
-	How does social software interact with WFMS or other business process support systems?
-	What is the impact on conceptual models for those categories of business processes which are not
2.	Social Business: Social software supporting business processes
-	Which new possibilities for the support of business processes are created by social software?
-	Are there business processes which require sociality, especially when they are not predictable (as
production workflows) but collaborative or ad hoc?
-	How can we use Wikis, Blogs etc. to support business processes? 
-	Which types of social software can be used in which phases of the BPM lifecycle? 
-	What new kinds of business knowledge representation are offered by social production?
3.	Human Aspects of Business Process Management
-	What requirements are created for individuals by participating in a multitude of business processes? 
-	Which concepts and technologies exist to support the individual in coping with different external
business processes
-	Which further human aspects of business process management exist?
-	Human-centric business processes
-	Human resource management in business processes


Based on the eight previous successful BPMS2 08 to BPMS2 15 workshops, the goal of the BPMS2 16 workshop is to
promote the integration of business process management with social software and to enlarge the

[Dbworld] CFP Sweds16



4th Swedish Workshop on Data Science (SweDS 2016)
Skovde, Sweden
November 10-11, 2016

SweDS-16, the fourth Swedish National Workshop on Data Science, brings together researchers,
practitioners, and opinion leaders with interest in data science. The goal is to further establish this
important area of research and application in Sweden, foster the exchange of ideas, and to promote
collaboration. As a followup to the very successful previous editions, held at the University of
Borås, Stockholm University, and Blekinge Institute of Technology we plan two full days of inspiring
talks, discussion sessions, a student forum, and time for networking. We invite stakeholders from
academia, industry, and society to share their thoughts, experiences and needs related to data science.
The workshop is organised by the Skovde Artificial Intelligence Lab (SAIL) at the University of Skovde.

    Notification to authors/presenters: Sep 10, 2016
    Workshop registration: Sep 16, 2016
    Workshop: Nov 10 - 11, 2016

* Topics: 

Data science focuses on the extraction of knowledge from data. The overall aim is to make better use of the
ever increasing amount of data generated by individuals, societies, companies, and science. To achieve
this aim, the objectives are to identify relevant challenges and problems, to study, develop and
evaluate solutions based on efficiency and effectiveness, and to perform successful implementations.
Data science is based on theory and methods from many fields, including: computer vision, data mining &
knowledge discovery, machine learning, optimization, statistics, and visualization.

Data science is not about blindly sifting through data in the hope for interesting results and
discoveries. In contrast, data science requires the ability to make sense of our complex world and the
domain under study, and to use this understanding and the available data to develop suitable
mathematical models that help us explain and predict interesting phenomena.

* Topics of Interest. They include, but are not limited to, the following

** Methods and Algorithms

    Classification, Clustering, and Regression
    Probabilistic & Statistical Methods
    Graphical Models
    Spatial & Temporal Mining
    Data Stream Mining
    Feature Extraction, Selection and Dimension Reduction
    Data Cleaning, Transformation & Preprocessing
    Multi-Task, Multi-label, and Multi-output Learning
    Big Data, Scalable & High-Performance Computing Techniques
    Mining Semi-Structured or Unstructured Data
    Text & Web Mining
    Data privacy

[Dbworld] CFP: The 8th International ACM Conference on Management of Digital EcoSystems, Hendaye, France

* Please distribute widely and accept our apologies for cross-posting *


     The 8th International Conference on Management of Digital EcoSystems (MEDES'16) 
                      In-Cooperation with ACM, ACM SIGAPP and IFIP WG 2.6
                                   November 1-4, 2016 
                                    Hendaye, France

Description and Objectives

In the world of the Internet of Things (IoT), the rapid growth and exponential use of digital components
leads to the emergence of intelligent environments namely "digital ecosystems" connected to the web and
composed of multiple and independent entities such as individuals, organizations, services, software
and applications sharing one or several missions and focusing on the interactions and
inter-relationships among them. With the help of the computational intelligence, these digital
ecosystems can exhibit new self-* properties (such as self-management, self-healing and
self-configuration) environments, thanks to the re-combination and evolution of its "digital
components", in which resources provided by each entity are properly conserved, managed and used. The
underlying web-based resources mainly comprehend big data management, innovative services, smart and
self-* properties platforms.

Due to the multi-disciplinary nature of digital ecosystems, they are highly complex to study and design.
This also leads to a poor understanding as to how managing resources will empower digital ecosystems to be
innovative, intelligent and value-creating. The application of Information Technologies has the
potential to enable the understanding of how entities request resources and ultimately interact to
create benefits and added-values, impacting business practices and knowledge. These technologies can
be improved through novel techniques, models and methodologies for fields such as big data management,
web technologies, networking, security, human-computer interactions, artificial intelligence,
e-services and self-organizing systems to support the establishment of digital ecosystems and manage
their resources.

The International Conference on Management of Digital EcoSystems (MEDES),previously named "The
International Conference on Management of Emergent Digital EcoSystems", aims to develop and bring
together a diverse community from academia, research laboratories and industry interested in
exploring the manifold challenges and issues related to resource management of Digital Ecosystems and
how current approaches and technologies can be evolved and adapted to this end.

MEDES 2016 calls for full papers presenting interesting recent results or novel ideas in all areas of
Emergent Digital EcoSystems.  At the same time, the conference calls  for short papers presenting
interesting and exciting recent results or novel thought-provoking ideas that are not quite ready, and
preferably include a system demonstration. 

MEDES 2015 seeks contributions in the following 10 areas:

1. Digital Ecosystem Infrastructure
2. Green computing
3. Computational and Collective Intelligence
4. Services
5. Trust, Security & Privacy
6. Data & Knowledge Management
7. Internet of Things and Intelligent Web
8. Human-Computer Interaction
9. Networks and Protocols
10. Open Source 

Paper Submission

Submissions must be in an electronic form as PDF format and should be uploaded using the conference
website. The submitted paper should be at most 8 ACM single-space printed pages. Papers that fail to
comply with length limit will be rejected. 

Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 peer reviewers. After the preliminary notification date,
authors rebut by evidence and arguments all reviewer inquiries and their comments. Based on the rebuttal
feedback, reviewers notify authors with the final decision. Selection criteria will include:
relevance, significance, impact, originality, technical soundness, and quality of presentation.
Preference will be given to submissions that take strong or challenging positions on important emergent
topics related to Digital Ecosystems. At least one author should attend the conference to present the

The conference Proceedings will be published by ACM and indexed by the ACM Digital Library and DBLP.
