[DMANET] PhD studentship in optimization/renewable energy, Strathclyde Business School (Glasgow, UK)

A PhD studentship in optimization is available at the Dept. of Management Science, University of Strathclyde Business School, Glasgow, UK, for the project topic entitled "Optimization of Offshore Renewable Energy Arrays for Minimal Life-Cycle Costs".

Funding is available to cover 3 years of tuition fees plus a tax free stipend (£14,653 for 2017-18, and projected to increase to £15,020 for 2018-19 and £15,395 for 2019-20). The studentship is open to candidates from any nationality (UK/EU/international), however, the fees will be covered at the UK/EU level.

The application deadline is 28th February 2017.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

A fundamental difficulty in developing offshore renewable energy (ORE) sites is that the uncertain environmental conditions make accurately assessing the life-cycle costs of a site a challenging problem. In particular, logistical operations throughout the life of a site are subject to uncertain operating conditions, and it is therefore difficult to plan and schedule these operations, and to estimate the resulting durations and costs. Similarly, the generating potential throughout the operation of a given site is dependent on the realised weather as well as the availability of each asset, and uncertainties in each of these make it difficult to accurately predict the profits to be gained from energy production. Decisions on aspects such as the size, layout and composition of a site are therefore difficult to accurately quantify and compare.

This project will aim to develop optimisation models to identify the best strategy for designing an ORE site. A complimentary PhD project in the Dept. of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering at Strathclyde will take an alternative approach to the problem, and as both projects progress in parallel, mutual developments will feed into both projects. This will provide a cross-disciplinary approach to a challenging research problem with potential industry impact.

FUNDING AND ELIGIBILITY

Funding is available to cover 3 years of tuition fees at the UK/EU level, plus a tax free stipend of £14,653 for 2017-18, and projected to increase to £15,020 for 2018-19 and £15,395 for 2019-20. The student will be given opportunities to attend a conference and/or specialized training every year.

The PhD project requires a highly numerate graduate with interests in renewable energy. Candidates should have at least a strong Honours degree or equivalent (a strong 2:1 Honours degree, or a B.Sc. degree with 3.3 GPA in a 4.0 system), or preferably a Master's degree in a quantitative discipline such as industrial engineering, operations research, mathematics or computer science (amongst others). Experience in programming and fundamental knowledge in optimization are not essential but highly desirable. Candidates who are not native English speakers will be required to provide evidence for their English skills (such as by IELTS or similar tests that are approved by UKVI, or a degree completed in an English speaking country).

Applications are admitted until 28th February 2017, or until a suitable candidate is found thereafter.

ABOUT PARSOCIAL
Computational methods to represent, model and analyze problems using social
information have come a long way in the last decade. Computational methods,
such as social network analysis, have provided exciting insights into how
social information can be utilized to better understand social processes,
and model the evolution of social systems over time. We have also seen a
rapid proliferation of sensor technologies, such as smartphones and medical
sensors, for collecting a wide variety of social data, much of it in real
time. Meanwhile, the emergence of parallel architectures, in the form of
multi-core/many-core processors, and distributed platforms, such as
MapReduce, have provided new approaches for large-scale modeling and
simulation, and new tools for analysis. These two trends have dramatically
broadened the scope of computational social systems research, and are
enabling researchers to tackle new challenges. These challenges include
modeling of real world scenarios with dynamic and real-time data, and
formulating rigorous computational frameworks to embed social and
behavioral theories. The IEEE Workshop on Parallel and Distributed
Processing for Computational Social Systems (ParSocial) provides a platform
to bring together interdisciplinary researchers from areas, such as
computer science, social sciences, applied mathematics and computer
engineering, to showcase innovative research in computational social
systems that leverage the emerging trends in parallel and distributed
processing, computational modeling, and high performance computing.

The papers selected for ParSocial will be published in the workshop
proceedings. Proceedings of the workshops are distributed at the conference
and are submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library after
the conference.

[DMANET] 2018 Flajolet Lecture Prize : call for nominations by 28 Feb 2017

2018 FLAJOLET LECTURE PRIZE

Call for Nominations: the due date is 28 February 2017

The Philippe Flajolet Lecture Prize for outstanding contributions to
analytic combinatorics and analysis of algorithms is awarded every two
years by the Analysis of Algorithms (AofA) community that owes its
existence to Philippe Flajolet. The first Flajolet Lecture was
presented by D. E. Knuth at the 2014 AofA International Conference on
Probabilistic, Combinatorial and Asymptotic Methods for the Analysis of
Algorithms, Paris, France, and the second one by Bob Sedgewich at the
2016 AofA Conference in Krakow, Poland.

The prize is named in honor and recognition of the extraordinary
accomplishments of late Philippe Flajolet, who spent most of his
scientific life at INRIA, France. Philippe is best known for
fundamental advances in mathematical methods for the analysis of
algorithms. His research laid the foundation of a subfield of
mathematics, now known as analytic combinatorics. Analytic
combinatorics is a modern basis for the quantitative study of
combinatorial structures (such as words, trees, mappings, and graphs),
with applications to probabilistic study of algorithms that are based on
these structures. It also strongly influences research in other
scientific domains, such as statistical physics, computational biology,
and information theory. Flajolet's work takes the field forward by
introducing original approaches in combinatorics based on two types of
methods: symbolic and analytic. The symbolic side is based on the
automation of decision procedures in combinatorial enumeration to derive
characterizations of generating functions. The analytic side treats
those functions as functions in the complex plane and leads to precise
characterization of limit distributions. Beyond these foundational
contributions, Philippe's research opened new avenues in various domains
of applied computer science, including streaming algorithms,
communication protocols, database access methods, data mining, symbolic
manipulation, text-processing algorithms, and random generation.

The next Flajolet Lecture will be delivered at the 2018 AofA Conference
in Uppsala, Sweden. Nominations are due on 28 February 2017. The winner
will be selected by a Prize Committee consisting of:

Michael Drmota, Chair (TU Wien)
Mireille Bousquet-Melou (Univ. Bordeaux)
Peter Winkler (Dartmouth College)
Bob Sedgewick, ex officio (Princeton University)

The nomination letter should summarize his/her contributions in one or
two pages. All nominations should be sent to Michael Drmota at
michael.drmota@tuwien.ac.at .

In selecting the Flajolet-Prize winner, the Committee will pay
particular attention to a sustained record of high-impact, seminal
contributions to the research areas most directly impacted by the work
of Flajolet: the foundations of analysis of algorithms and/or analytic
combinatorics. The selection may also be based partly on educational
accomplishments and contributions such as fundamental textbooks and
high-quality students. The final selection will be approved by the
Steering Committee of the AofA.

[DMANET] Workshop on Deep Learning for Music - Call for Abstracts/papers

International Workshop on Deep Learning for Music

In conjunction with the 2017 International Joint Conference on Neural
Networks

(IJCNN 2017))

14-19 May (1 day), Anchorage

More info <http://dorienherremans.com/dlm2017/>

There has been tremendous interest in deep learning across many fields of
study. Recently, these techniques have gained popularity in the field of
music. Projects such as Magenta (Google's Brain Team's music generation
project), Jukedeck and others testify to their potential.

While humans can rely on their intuitive understanding of musical patterns
and the relationships between them, it remains a challenging task for
computers to capture and quantify musical structures. Recently, researchers
have attempted to use deep learning models to learn features and
relationships that allow us to accomplish tasks in music transcription,
audio feature extraction, emotion recognition, music recommendation, and
automated music generation.

With this workshop we aim to advance the state-of-the-art in machine
intelligence for music by bringing together researchers in the field of
music and deep learning. This will enable us to critically review and
discuss cutting-edge-research so as to identify grand challenges, effective
methodologies, and potential new applications.


Topics

Papers and abstracts on the application of deep learning techniques on
music are welcomed, including but not limited to:

-

Deep learning applications for computational music research
-

Modeling hierarchical and long term music structures using deep learning
-

Modeling ambiguity and preference in music
-

Software frameworks and tools for deep learning in music

More info <http://dorienherremans.com/dlm2017/>

2017 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation Special Session and
Competition on: "Niching Methods for Multimodal Optimization"

Niching Methods for Multimodal Optimization*

============
Objectives
============

Population or single solution search-based optimization algorithms (i.e.
{meta,hyper}-heuristics) in their original forms are usually designed for
locating a single global solution. Representative examples include among others
evolutionary and swarm intelligence algorithms. These search algorithms
typically converge to a single solution because of the global selection scheme
used. Nevertheless, many real-world problems are "multimodal" by nature, i.e.,
multiple satisfactory solutions exist. It may be desirable to locate many such
satisfactory solutions, or even all of them, so that a decision maker can
choose one that is most proper in his/her problem domain. Numerous techniques
have been developed in the past for locating multiple optima (global and/or
local). These techniques are commonly referred to as "niching" methods. A
niching method can be incorporated into a standard search-based optimization
algorithm, in a sequential or parallel way, with an aim to locate multiple
globally optimal or suboptimal solutions. Sequential approaches locate optimal
solutions progressively over time, while parallel approaches promote and
maintain formation of multiple stable subpopulations within a single
population. Many niching methods have been developed in the past, including
crowding, fitness sharing, derating, restricted tournament selection, clearing,
speciation, etc. In more recent times, niching methods have also been developed
for meta-heuristic algorithms such as Particle Swarm Optimization, Differential
Evolution and Evolution Strategies.

Most of existing niching methods, however, have difficulties that need to be
overcome before they can be applied successfully to real-world multimodal
problems. Some identified issues include: difficulties to pre-specify some
niching parameters; difficulties in maintaining found solutions in a run; extra
computational overhead; poor scalability when dimensionality and modality are
high. This special session aims to highlight the latest developments in niching
methods, bringing together researchers from academia and industries, and
exploring future research directions on this topic. We invite authors to submit
original and unpublished work on niching methods. Topics of interest include
but are not limited to:

- Theoretical developments in multimodal optimization
- Niching methods that incurs lower computational costs
- Handling the issue of niching parameters in niching methods
- Handling the scalability issue in niching methods
- Handling problems characterized by massive multi-modality
- Adaptive or parameter-less niching methods
- Multiobjective approaches to niching
- Multimodal optimization in dynamic environments
- Niching methods applied to discrete multimodal optimization problems
- Niching methods applied to constrained multimodal optimization problems
- Niching methods using parallel or distributed computing techniques
- Benchmarking niching methods, including test problem design and performance
metrics
- Comparative studies of various niching methods
- Niching methods applied to engineering and other real-world multimodal
optimization problems

Please note that we are NOT interested if the adopted task is to find
a single solution of a multimodal problem.

Furthermore, a companion competition on Niching Methods for Multimodal
Optimization will also be organized in conjunction with our special
session. See further information at:

http://www.epitropakis.co.uk/cec17-niching/competition/

The aim of the competition is to provide a common platform that encourages fair
and easy comparisons across different niching algorithms. The competition
allows participants to run their own niching algorithms on 20 benchmark
multimodal functions with different characteristics and levels of difficulty.
Researchers are welcome to evaluate their niching algorithms using this
benchmark suite, and report the results by submitting a paper to the associated
niching special session (i.e., submitting via the on-line submission system of
CEC'2017). In case it is too late to submit the paper (i.e., passing the
CEC'2017 submission deadline), author may submit their results in a report
directly to the special session organizers, in order to be counted in the
competition.

These events are supported by the newly established IEEE CIS Task Force on
Multi-modal Optimization (http://www.epitropakis.co.uk/ieee-mmo/)

[DMANET] DICE-FOPARA 2017: Call for Papers

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

8th Workshop on Developments in Implicit Computational complExity and
5th Workshop on Foundational and Practical Aspects of Resource
Analysis
(DICE-FOPARA 2017)

Affiliated with ETAPS 2017
April 22 - 23, 2017, Uppsala, Sweden
http://cbr.uibk.ac.at/events/dice-fopara

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

OBJECTIVES

The first joint international workshop on Developments in Implicit
Computational complExity (DICE) and
FOundational and Practical Aspects of Resource Analysis (FOPARA) will be
held in Uppsala, Sweden, from April 22-23, 2017 as part of ETAPS.

The DICE workshop explores the area of Implicit Computational Complexity
(ICC), which grew out from several proposals to use logic and formal
methods to provide languages for complexity-bounded computation (e.g.
Ptime, Logspace computation). It aims at studying the computational
complexity of programs without referring to external measuring
conditions or a particular machine model, but only by considering
language restrictions or logical/computational principles entailing
complexity properties.

The FOPARA workshop serves as a forum for presenting original research
results that are relevant to the analysis of resource (e.g. time, space,
energy) consumption by computer programs. The workshop aims to bring
together the researchers that work on foundational issues with the
researchers that focus more on practical results. Therefore, both
theoretical and practical contributions are encouraged. We also
encourage papers that combine theory and practice.

Given the complementarity and the synergy between these two communities,
and following the successful experience of co-location of DICE-FOPARA
2015 in London at ETAPS 2015, we will hold
the 8th Workshop on DICE and the 5th Workshop on FOPARA together at
ETAPS 2017.


TOPICS

The joint international DICE-FOPARA workshop serves as a forum for
presenting original and established research results that are relevant
to the implicit computational complexity theory and to the analysis of
resource (e.g. time, space, energy) consumption by computer programs.
The workshop aims to bring together the researchers that work on
foundational issues with the researchers that focus more on practical
results. Therefore, both theoretical and practical contributions are
encouraged, as well as papers that combine theory and practice.

Areas of interest to the workshop include, but are not limited to,
the following:

* type systems for controlling/inferring/checking complexity
* logical and machine-independent characterisations of complexity classes
* logics closely related to complexity classes
* linear logic
* semantics of complexity-bounded computation
* rewriting and termination orderings
* interpretation-based methods for implicit complexity
* programming languages for complexity-bounded computation
* theoretical foundations of program complexity analysis
* application of implicit complexity to security
* resource static analysis for embedded or/and critical systems;
* semantic methods to analyse resources, including quasi-interpretations;
* practical applications of resource analysis;
* resource analysis by term and graph rewriting.


SUBMISSIONS

We ask for submission of *regular papers* describing original work
(10--15 pages) or *extended abstracts* (2--6 pages) presenting already
published work or work in progress.

With respect to regular papers, submissions will be in particular
verified for
originality and novelty and the manuscript must not have been published,
nor is presently submitted, elsewhere. With respect of submissions of
extended abstracts already published manuscripts are acceptable, but
have to be within the scope of the workshop and potentially give rise to
lively discussions during the meeting.

After the workshop we plan to edit a special issue of DICE-FOPARA 2017
in a renown journal in conjunction with the 7th Workshop on Developments
in Implicit Computational complExity (DICE 2016).

Regular papers must be prepared using the LaTeX EPTCS class (see
http://eptcs.org/). Accepted regular papers will appear in an EPTCS
volume (application pending). Papers should be submitted electronically
via the submission page:

https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dicefopara2017


IMPORTANT DATES

Paper submission February 19, 2017
Notification March 19, 2017
Final versions due March 26, 2017
Workshop date April 22-23, 2017


CONFERENCE VENUE
