In recent years, there has been exponential growth in both the development and use of mobile applications,
thus presenting new challenges to software engineering. Mobile platforms are rapidly changing, with
the addition of diverse capabilities such as GPS, sensors, and touch or pen input modes.  When running on
mobile platforms, modern applications need to scale on demand according to the hardware abilities.
During development, security and authorization processes for data flows are very important. However,
the popularity of bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies in schools, universities and the workplace
bring new possibilities of security data leaks. Developing robust mobile applications therefore
requires advanced practices and tools. Some of these are architecture techniques that relate to
platform complexity; improved refactoring tools for hybrid applications using dynamic languages;
developing applications in multiple languages; and testing and verification techniques for
applications that run on different devices.

CFP: Workshop on Clusters, Clouds and Grids for Life Sciences (CCGrid-Life 2015) In conjunction with CCGrid 2015 + SI (FGCS, impact factor: 2.639)

Workshop on Clusters, Clouds and Grids for Life Sciences (CCGrid-Life
2015)In conjunction with CCGrid 2015 - 15th IEEE/ACM International Symposium
on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing, May 4-7, 2015, Shenzhen, Guangdong,
ChinaMore details at lsgc.org/ccgrid-life/
<http://lsgc.org/ccgrid-life/>WelcomeIn the last 20 years, computational
methods have become an important part of developing emerging technologies
for the field of bioinformatics and biomedicine. Research areas such as
biomodelling, molecular dynamics, genomics, neuroscience, cancer models,
evolutionary biology, medical biology, biochemistry, biophysics,
biotechnology, cell biology, nanobiotechnology, biological engineering,
pharmacology, genetics therapy, or automatic diagnosis, rely heavily on
large scale computational resources as they need to manage Tbytes or Pbytes
of data with large-scale structural and functional relationships, TFlops or
PFlops of computing power for simulating highly complex models, or many-task
processes and workflows for processing and analyzing data.This new situation
demands appropriate IT-infrastructures, where bioinformatic and medical data
can be processed within an acceptable timespan - reaching from minutes in
health-care applications to days in large-scale research projects.
Large-scale distributed IT-systems such as Grids, Clouds and
Big-Data-Environments are promising to address research, clinical and
medical research community requirements. They allow for significant
reduction of computational time for running large experiments, for
speeding-up the development time for new algorithms, for increasing the
availability of new methods for the research community, and for supporting
large-scale multi-centric collaborations. However, specific challenges in
the employment of such systems for bioinformatic applications such as
security, reliability and user-friendliness, often impede straightforward
adoption of existing solutions from other application domains.This workshop
aims at bringing together developers of bioinformatic and medical
applications and researchers in the field of distributed IT systems. On the

Second CfP: C&T 2015, 27-30 June 2015, Limerick, Ireland

Call for Papers
7th International Conference on Communities and Technologies (C&T 2015)
27-30 June 2015, Limerick, Ireland

Important Dates
• 1 Feb 2015 Papers, Workshop and Tutorials Proposals due
• 1 Mar 2015 Notification of acceptance (for Workshop &Tutorial Proposals)
• 1 Apr 2015 Notification of acceptance (for Full Papers)
• 1 May 2015 Camera Ready Papers
• 1 May 2015 Workshop Papers, Work-in-Progress Papers, Doctoral Consortium
Submissions and Student Volunteers Applications due
• 1 June 2015 – Early bird registration ends
• 27-28 Jun 2015 Workshops, Tutorials and Doctoral Consortium
• 29-30 Jun 2015 C&T Conference

In September 2003, the biannual conference series ‘Communities and
Technologies (C&T)’ started with a meeting in Amsterdam attracting some 350
participants.  Almost at the same time, the more policy, advocacy and
practice-oriented Community Informatics (CI) series of conferences began in
Prato, Italy in 2002, along with an online email network and the Journal of
Community Informatics. It is time to cross fertilize these discussions and
to identify convergences, overlaps, divergences and common paths, as well
as challenges for future research, advocacy, policy and practice.
We cordially invite submissions to the Seventh International Conference on
Communities and Technologies (C&T 2015), hosted from 27 to 30 June by the
University of Limerick, Ireland. This biennial meeting serves as a forum
for stimulating and disseminating research on the complex connections
between communities - both physical and virtual - and information and
communication technologies. This seventh edition of the conference will
mark a stronger opening toward Community Informatics work.

Role of social media in natural disasters (request for participation)

(sent on behalf of my colleague: Duncan Reed, The Open University, UK. Duncan's contact details are given
below; he is grateful to colleagues who replied to his previous request a couple of months ago.)

Dear all:

For my dissertation related to the role of social media in natural disasters, I am investigating how useful
social media is during natural disasters, how its usefulness can be improved, and what the effects are
when the infrastructure is unavailable. So if you have been recently affected, or know someone that has
(you can forward the URL below) then please click the link below and complete the questionnaire.

I am looking for three types of participants:

1. People directly affected e.g. Victims
2. People indirectly affected e.g. Friends and Family of victims
3. People working for, or volunteering for, relief organisations or governments*
* in both an ‘on the ground’ and backend IT capacity

The participant data will be anonymised ahead of its analysis and presentation in the dissertation. The
research project and materials have been approved by the Ethics Committee of The Open University, UK.

The URL for the Survey is https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NaturalDisasterSurvey

Should you not wish to fill up the questionnaire but are happy to be interviewed, then please write to me. My
email address is <duncan.reed <at> my.open.ac.uk<mailto:duncan.reed <at> my.open.ac.uk>>

Please feel to contact me if you have any queries.
