2008 IEEE International Conference on Networking, Sensing and Control
Sanya, China, April 6-8, 2008

Sponsored by the IEEE Systems, Man and Cybernetics Society

http://liu.ece.uic.edu/ICNSC08

The 2008 IEEE International Conference on Networking, Sensing and Control will be held in Sanya, China. The main theme of the conference is advanced technologies for emergency planning and response. Effective management of emergency events, including natural disasters and terrorist attacks, requires more sophisticated command, control, communication and coordination systems, which in hence raises challenge to researchers in the areas of networking, sensing, human factors, operational research, logistics, decision-making, information fusion, control theory, and system simulation. This conference will provide a remarkable opportunity for the academic and industrial community to address new challenges and share solutions, and discuss future research directions. It will feature plenary speeches, industrial panel sessions, funding agency panel sessions, interactive sessions, and invited/special sessions. Contributions are expected from academia, industry, and emergency management agencies. The conference will feature plenary speeches given by worldwide renowned scholars, regular sessions with broad coverage, and some special sessions focusing on popular topics.

ABOUT SANYA

Sanya is located on the southernmost tip of Hainan Island of China. Sanya is the island's most famous tropical resort, wonderful in the baking summer months and also a popular spot in winter too. Once home to China's most reviled exiles. Sanya has been transformed from a spot that no one wanted to visit at the 'end of the world', to become one of China's most popular, most beautiful and relaxed areas. Sanya town is situated on a small peninsula, connected to the mainland by two bridges. The town itself is a noisy and atmospheric place. This is an active naval base and men in uniform, 'ladies of the night' and fishermen all mingle together around the docks and wharf area. This is a great place to soak up some atmosphere and the night market here is especially lively with seafood thrown on the streets, stores selling all types of weird and wonderful wares (including smuggled goods from Vietnam) and huge tea warehouses, all adding to the chaotic feeling about this place. And it is the beaches that are the biggest attraction here. Sanya has some of the most beautiful and well-maintained stretches of sand not just in China but in southern Asia. The sand here is white, palm trees provide shelter from the sun and the sea is wonderfully blue and warm. This is just about the only place in China with a really laid-back feeling and atmosphere. You could spend anything from a few days to a week or so here, soaking up the sun, relaxing and just enjoying the unique and relaxed ambience that dominates this place.

CFP: 3rd Int'l Workshop on Automated Specification and Verification of Web Systems (WWV'07)

[ We apologize for multiple copies ]

*******************************************************************
           Preliminary Call For Papers

     3rd International Workshop on Automated
          Specification and Verification
               of Web Systems (WWV'07)

        San Servolo island, Venice (Italy)
                 December 14, 2007

           http://wwv07.dimi.uniud.it/
*******************************************************************

SCOPE

The  increased  complexity  of Web sites and the explosive growth of
Web-based applications has turned their design and construction into
a  challenging problem. Nowadays, many companies have diverted their
Web   sites   into   interactive,   completely-automated,  Web-based
applications (such  as  Amazon, on-line banking, or travel agencies)
with  a  high complexity that requires appropriate specification and
verification  techniques and tools. Systematic, formal approaches to
the  analysis  and  verification  can  address  the problems of this
particular  domain  with  automated  and  reliable  tools  that also
incorporate semantic aspects.

We solicit original papers on formal methods and techniques applied
to Web sites, Web services or Web-based applications, such as:

* rule-based approaches to Web site analysis, certification,
    specification, verification, and optimization
* formal models for describing and reasoning about Web sites
* model-checking, synthesis and debugging of Web sites
* abstract interpretation and program transformation applied
    to the semantic Web
* intelligent tutoring and advisory systems for Web specifications
    authoring
* Web quality and Web metrics
* Web usability and accessibility
* Testing and evaluation of Web systems and applications

The WWV series provides a forum for researchers from the communities
of Rule-based programming, Automated Software Engineering, and
Web-oriented research to facilitate the cross-fertilization and the
advancement of hybrid methods that combine the three areas.

LOCATION

WWV'07 will be held in December in the convention centre of the
island of San Servolo, Venice, Italy.

SUBMISSION PROCEDURE

Submissions must be received by October 21, 2007. In addition, an
ASCII version of the title and abstract must have been submitted by
October 14, 2007. Submitted papers should be at most 15 pages in the
Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  (ENTCS) style, and
should include an abstract and the author's information. See the
author's instructions of ENTCS style at http://www.entcs.org.

PUBLICATION

Accepted papers will be published in a preliminary proceedings volume,
which will be available during the workshop. Publication of the workshop
post-proceedings in the Elsevier series Electronic Notes in Theoretical
Computer Science (ENTCS) is envisaged.

Information from the SC meeting in Siedlce 2007

Information from the SC meeting in Siedlce June 2007

====================================================

 

During the SC meeting at the Petri Net conference in Siedlce a number of important

decisions were made.

 

Kurt Jensen

SC chair 

 

----------------------- 

 

Special issues in Fundamenta Informaticae

=========================================

 

It has been decided to make special issues of the Fundamenta Informaticae Journal

based on some of the best papers accepted for the Petri Net conferences.

The PC-chairs will be the editors of the special issue. This will mean

that they will be in charge of the selection of papers to be invited and the

reviewing of the improved papers. The other members of the PC will also be

involved (both in the selection and in the reviewing process).

This will be effective already for the 2007 conference in Siedlce.

 

 

Transactions on Petri Nets and other models of Concurrency (ToPNoC)

===================================================================

 

The first 2-3 volumes are expected to appear in 2008 (or in the beginning of 2009).

One of them will contain selected papers from workshops (and tutorials) in

Siedlce. The others will contain selected papers within particular areas (similar

to some of the volumes that have been published in "Advances in Petri Nets").

More information about ToPNoC can be found at:

 

  http://www.springer.com/east/home/computer/lncs?SGWID=5-164-6-417809-0

 

 

Advanced course in 2010

=========================

 

The next Advanced Course on Petri Nets will take place in the fall of 2010

in Rostock (in the northern part of Germany).

Karsten Wolf will be the course director and the head of the local

organising committee. To assist him in the detailed planning of the scientific

contents, the SC has appointed three scientific directors:

- Wil van der Aalst (chair),

- Gianfranco Balbo,

- Maciej Koutny.

Together with Karsten Wolf they will be the editors of the ToPNoC volume containing

the course material.

 

 

Changes to the Steering Committeee

==================================

 

Gianfranco Ciardo, USA has accepted our invitation to join the Steering Committee

and he participated in the SC meeting in Siedlce.

 

Due to retirement Tad Murata leaves the SC. On behalf of all

the SC members and the entire Petri Net community, I want to express our

gratitude for all the work and ideas that Tad has provided over a very

long series of years. We wish him all the best in his future life.

 

 

2009 conference in Paris

=========================

 

Guiliana Franceschinis and Karsten Wolf will be the two PC-chairs.

The conference will be co-located with the International Symposium

on Rapid System Prototyping. This means that the two events will take place at the

same time -- sharing location, invited speakers, workshops, tutorials, etc.

 

 

Petri Net conferences in 2010-2012

==================================

 

An invitation for proposals to organise the Petri Net conferences in 2010-2012

will be made via the Petri Net web pages and mail list in the Spring of 2008.

 

 

Later deadline for tutorial proposals

=====================================

 

It was decided to move the deadline for proposals of advanced tutorials to

January 5 (half a year before the conference).  The change will be effective for the

2009 conference in Paris. The deadline for workshop proposals remains at June 1

(one year before the conference).

 

 

Best paper rewards

==================

 

At the SC meeting in Turku we decided to institute a "Best Paper Award". The

experience from this year is positive and hence we will continue.

The PC and in particular the PC chairs are responsible for the selection

of the paper to be rewarded. The award is a nice diploma.

 

 

Workshops and advanced tutorials at the 2008 conference in Xi’an

================================================================

 

Jonathan Billington and Maciej Koutny will be the two W&T chairs for the

Xi’an conference. The following workshops and tutorials have been accepted

:

Call for Workshops: CCGrid08


     8th IEEE International Symposium on Cluster Computing and the Grid
                        18-22 May 2008, Lyon, France
                       http://ccgrid2008.ens-lyon.fr

        Workshops proposals Submission deadline : 10th September 2007

Call for Workshops proposals

The IEEE CCGrid Organizing Committee invites workshop proposals for
CCGrid'2008 to be held in Lyon, France, in May 2008.

Workshop proposals are invited on specific aspects of the Grid and
Cluster Computing, particularly relating to the subject areas indicated
by the topics below. We encourage workshops which will discuss
fundamental research issues driven by academic interests or more applied
industrial or commercial concerns. The format of the workshop will be
determined by the organizers. Workshops can vary in length from a half
day to a full day. Having more than one co-organizer for a workshop is
strongly advised.

Workshop proceedings will be published as part of the CCGrid08
proceedings. So, it is *very important* that high quality workshops are
accepted, and that workshop chairs observe strict quality strandards in
the selection of papers for their events.

Workshops attendees should register to the main conference.

Important Dates and Proposal Submission
-----------------------------------------

Workshop proposals and any enquiries should be sent by e-mail to any one
of the workshop chairs mentioned below. Proposals should be submitted in
PDF format (printable on A4 paper).

Workshop Proposals Due:     September 10, 2007
Notification:                     September 20, 2007
URL for Workshop Website Due:     October 1, 2007
Workshop:                     18-22 May, 2008

Proposal Requirements
---------------------------

Proposals for workshops should be no more than 2 pages in length. They
should contain the following information:

    * Title and brief technical description of the workshop, specifying
      the goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.

    * A brief description of why and to whom the workshop is of interest.

    * A list of related workshops or similar events held in the last 3
      years, or to be held in 2007.

    * The names and contact information (web page, email address) of the
      proposed organizing committee. This committee should consist of
      two or three people knowledgeable about the technical issues to be
      addressed, preferably not members of the same institution.

    * A description of the qualifications of the proposed organizing
      committee with respect to organizing this workshop (e.g., papers
      published in the proposed topic area, previous workshop
      organization, other relevant information).

Responsibilities
------------------------

Each workshop organizing committee will be responsible for the following:

# Producing a web page and a "Call for Papers/Participation" for their
workshop. The URL should be sent to the workshop chair. The call must
make it clear that the workshop is open to all members of the Grid and
Cluster Computing community.

# It should mentions that at least one author of each accepted submission
must attend the workshop and that all workshop participants must pay the
CCGrid 2008 workshop registration fee, as well as the conference fee.
Finally, it should also clearly describe the process by which the
Organizing Committee will select the participants.

# Ensure that all workshop papers are a maximum of 6 pages in length (in
IEEE format).

# Provide a brief description of the workshop for the conference web page
and program.

# Selecting the participants and the format of the workshop.

# The publication of proceedings will be by the IEEE alongside the
conference proceedings (in many cases this is in the same volume as the
main conference). The acceptance notification (by workshop chairs)
therefore should be the same as "conference paper acceptance"
notification (i.e. the dates should be the same). All other details can
be up to workshop organisers to set.

# Advertising the workshop beyond the conference web page.

# Producing a camera-ready version of the workshop proceedings.

# *Important matter*: The CCGrid 2008 Organizing Committee may decide,
based on the submission score to cancel or merge workshops before the
conference. So we encourage workshop organisers to attract a large
community.

The CCGrid 2008 Organizing Committee will be responsible for the following:

    * Providing a link to a workshop's local page.
    * Providing logistics support and a meeting place for the workshop.
    * In conjunction with the organizers, determining the workshop date
      and time.
    * Providing copies of the workshop proceedings to attendees.

Conference Topics of Interest and Area Keywords
------------------------------------------------------

Topics of interest to the conference include (but are not restricted to):

    * Autonomic Grid Computing
    * Multi-Core Systems
    * Grid Testbeds
    * Semantic Grids
    * Web 2.0 Technologies
    * Peer-2-Peer and Grid Computing
    * Workflow Tools and Applications
    * Programming Models

Workshop Chairs
-----------------

    * Franck Cappello (fci <at> lri.fr), INRIA, France
    * Omer Rana (o.f.rana <at> cs.cardiff.ac.uk), Welsh eScience Center
      and Cardiff University, UK
    * Zhiyi Huang (hzy <at> cs.otago.ac.nz), University of Otago, New
      Zealand
