Second IEEE/ACM International Conference on Big Data Computing (BDC 2015): Second Call for Papers

*** Second Call for Papers ***

Second IEEE/ACM International Conference on Big Data Computing
(BDC 2015)

December 07-10, 2015, St. Raphael Resort, Limassol, Cyprus

Co-located with the 8th IEEE/ACM International Conference
on Utility and Cloud Computing (UCC 2015)


Rapid advances in digital sensors, networks, storage, and computation along
with their availability at low cost is leading to the creation of huge collections
of data -- dubbed as Big Data. This data has the potential for enabling new
insights that can change the way business, science, and governments deliver
services to their consumers and can impact society as a whole. This has led
to the emergence of the Big Data Computing paradigm focusing on sensing,
collection, storage, management and analysis of data from variety of sources
to enable new value and insights.

To realize the full potential of Big Data Computing, we need to address
several challenges and develop suitable conceptual and technological
solutions for dealing them. These include life-cycle management of data,
large-scale storage, flexible processing infrastructure, data modeling,
scalable machine learning and data analysis algorithms, techniques for
sampling and making trade-off between data processing time and accuracy,
and dealing with privacy and ethical issues involved in data sensing, storage,

Call for Papers - DChanges 2015: ACM DocEng Workshop on (Document) Changes: modeling, detection, storage and visualization

*** Apologies for cross-posting ***

                            3rd International Workshop on

             (Document) Changes: Modeling, Detection, Storage and Visualization


          Part of 15th ACM SIGWEB International Symposium on Document Engineering

                      Lausanne, Switzerland, September 8th, 2015


DChanges 2015 is the third edition of the International Workshop on (Document) Changes: Modeling,
Detection, Storage and Visualization in conjunction with the 15th ACM SIGWEB International Symposium
on Document Engineering. This year, the workshop will be held in Lausanne (Switzerland) in September 2015.

The focus of the workshop is the study of changes in all its aspects and applications: algorithms to detect
changes, models to describe differences, techniques to track changes, versioning of human-readable as
well as computer-oriented files, tools to detect meaningful changes among a myriad of modifications.

We want to look at these topics from different perspectives, and take on different approaches. The
workshop brings together researchers and practitioners from industry and academia. It is a unique
occasion to discuss these issues in an informal setting and to foster collaboration.

The previous editions emphasised a strong need for novel algorithms and interfaces to better understand
and exploit detected changes. Several issues were pointed out as still unsolved: interfaces do not scale
when dealing with many changes, changes at different levels of abstraction are often not sufficiently

Workshop on ‘Critical Ways of Making: Design Artefacts, De-Computation and Un-Crafting’, extended Deadline

*** We apologize if you receive multiple copies ***

Final Call for Participation: “Critical Ways of Making: Design Artefacts, De-Computation and Un-Crafting”
One day workshop to be held August 17, 2015
as part of Critical Alternatives 2015 , Aarhus, DK (

Due to multiple requests: deadline extended to June 1st.

Design processes and creative artefacts are a powerful way to explore alternative scenarios for
information technology and its place in society. In this workshop, we introduce De-Computation (a
critical design process) and Un-Crafting (an associated method) for generating designs. Both
approaches focus on taking apart objects and artefacts, as well as their underlying assumptions,
paradigms and interpretations. We invite researchers, designers, activists and practitioners from
the fields of human-computer interaction, education, design, craft, DIY electronics, making, and
design for activism, to explore the themes of computational thinking, design making, and critical
practice. The guiding questions for the workshop are: How can de-computing and un-crafting things allow
space for critical reflection about interaction design and computer technologies? How can critical
design practices account for our contested and shifting relationship with information technologies?
How can emerging attitudes to craft processes contribute to a new model for how artefacts are situated in
the context of every day life?

This one-day workshop will take a creative, co-creation approach to the topic, encouraging
collaborative exploration and allowing for surprising and playful results.

*** Topics

We invite designers, authors, researchers and craft practitioners to submit a description of relevant
research, theoretical reflections, a design project, or alternative making project that addresses,

HCOMP 2015 Workshop Proposals Due Midnight (PST) TONIGHT

HCOMP 2015
November 8-11, 2015
*May 22, 2015: Workshop Submission Deadline*

The HCOMP conference is cross-disciplinary, and we invite submissions
across the broad spectrum of crowdsourcing and human computation work.
Human computation and crowdsourcing is unique in its direct engagement and
reliance on both human-centered studies and traditional computer science.
The HCOMP conference is thus aimed at promoting the scientific exchange of
advances in human computation and crowdsourcing among researchers,
engineers, and practitioners across a spectrum of disciplines who may
otherwise not have the opportunity to hear from one another.

The theme for HCOMP 2015 is "Intersections": intersections between people
and technology, intersections between different stakeholders, intersections
of the physical and virtual, and intersections between diverse perspectives
in the HCOMP community and beyond.

*Workshop and tutorial proposals are due Midnight PST on May 22, 2015.*
*Email workshop submission to Kate Starbird (Workshop
Chair): kstarbi <at> <kstarbi <at>>*

Authors of papers, *workshops*, and tutorials will be notified about the
acceptance and rejection of their submissions on June 19, 2015.

Call for Chapters: Open Education: from OERs to MOOCs (Springer publisher)

Call for Chapters:

Springer book: Open Education: from OERs to MOOCs

* Publisher:
The book will be published by Springer in 2016 under its Lecture Notes in Educational Technology series (

* Introduction
This book will focus on the emerging phenomenon of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) within the context
of open education movement, and review existing policies, guidelines and initiatives to promote the use
of ICT in education through the development and use of open educational resources from the international
practices, including implementation and licensing issues. The word limit is between 5000 to 7000 words.

* Important Dates 
June 20, 2015 - Abstract received (according to the structure provided by editors)
July 20,  2015 - Feedback on abstract provided
November 20,  2015 - Chapter received (in Springer's author template provided by editors)
January 20, 2016 - Review and feedback on chapters
February 20, 2016 - Final camera-ready chapters received

* Description
The focus on Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) in recent years has opened up new opportunities to
re-think the Open Education movement. At the core of this trend are Open Educational Resources (OERs)
which aim to ensure wider access to open licensed available online educational resources for everyone.
To promote openness in education and to support the development and availability of OERs, there is a need
for national policies and large scale strategic and purposeful initiatives. Nowadays, with the growing
interest in free online learning, these initiatives should be repurposed to be inclusive and to promote
open access to all available online course content whatever its shape, OERs, OpenCourseWare (OCW) or
Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC). This book will focus on reviewing existing policies, guidelines and
initiatives to promote the use of ICT in education through the development and use of open educational
