[DMANET] CFP: [2 Days Left] - ICC'17 Workshop - 5th IEEE SCPA 2017 - May 21-25, 2017. Paris, France

-------------------- CALL FOR PAPERS (DEADLINE EXTENDED) -----------------
5th IEEE International Workshop on Smart Communication Protocols and Algorithms (SCPA 2017)
May 21-25, 2017. Paris, France
In conjunction with IEEE ICC 2017
http://scpa.it.ubi.pt/2017/
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Selected papers will be invited to the Special Issue on Smart Protocols and Algorithms of the International Journal Network Protocols and Algorithms (ISSN: 1943-3581) or to the Special Issue on Recent Advances on Communications and Networking Technology Journal (ISSN: 2215-082X (Online); ISSN: 2215-0811 (Print)).


Communication protocols and algorithms are needed to communicate network devices and exchange data between them. The appearance of new technologies usually comes with a protocol procedure and communication rules that allows data communication while taking profit of this new technology. Recent advances in hardware and communication mediums allow proposing new rules, conventions and data structures which could be used by network devices to communicate across the network. Moreover, devices with higher processing capacity let us include more complex algorithms that can be used by the network device to enhance the communication procedure.
Smart communication protocols and algorithms make use of several methods and techniques (such as machine learning techniques, decision making techniques, knowledge representation, network management, network optimization, problem solution techniques, and so on), to communicate the network devices to transfer data between them. They can be used to perceive the network conditions, or the user behavior, in order to dynamically plan, adapt, decide, take the appropriate actions, and learn from the consequences of its actions. The algorithms can make use of the information gathered from the protocol in order to sense the environment, plan actions according to the input, take consciousness of what is happening in the environment, and take the appropriate decisions using a reasoning engine. Goals such as decide which scenario fits best its end-to-end purpose, or environment prediction, can be achieved with smart protocols and algorithms. Moreover, they could learn from the pas!
t and use this knowledge to improve
future decisions.
In this workshop, researchers are encouraged to submit papers focused on the design, development, analysis or optimization of smart communication protocols or algorithms at any communication layer. Algorithms and protocols based on artificial intelligence techniques for network management, network monitoring, quality of service enhancement, performance optimization and network secure are included in the workshop.
We welcome technical papers presenting analytical research, simulations, practical results, position papers addressing the pros and cons of specific proposals, and papers addressing the key problems and solutions. The topics suggested by the conference can be discussed in term of concepts, state of the art, standards, deployments, implementations, running experiments and applications.

Topics of interest:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Authors are invited to submit complete unpublished papers, which are not under review in any other conference or journal, including, but are not limited to, the following topic areas:
- Smart network protocols and algorithms for multimedia delivery
- Application layer, transport layer and network layer cognitive protocols

[DMANET] CFP: Special Session on “Smart Cities” - MIC 2017 (Barcelona)

**********************************************************************

* Special Session on "Smart Cities" *

* Metaheuristic International Conference (MIC 2017) *

* Barcelona, Spain, July 4th-7th 2015 *

* *

* http://mic2017.upf.edu/special-sessions/ *

**********************************************************************

Smart Cities represent a new community of researchers, developers and
innovators where new intelligent applications are continuously seek. As a
way of creating these intelligent products and services, metaheuristics
appear as a way of developing scalable, highly restricted and data driven
applications.

This special session provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and results
among researchers, developers, and practitioners working on the application
of heuristic and metaheuristic methods to address problems related to smart
cities.

As a key point to distinguish old applications and the new smart city
environment, potential authors are requested to attack several edges of a
problem (holistic vision, e.g. routes and pollution), use real data, deal
with the actual city problem (not with a very abstract model of it) and

[DMANET] Two postdoc positions in Warwick

Dear colleagues,

we are advertising two postdoc positions in combinatorics with a particular
focus on combinatorial limits and extremal combinatorics. However no
previous experience with research in these areas is required; applications
from recent PhD graduates are particularly welcome.

One of the positions is EPSRC-funded and the other is ERC-funded. The
expected starting date is October 2017 but the exact starting date of the
24-month ERC-funded position can be negotiated. The closing date for
applications to the positions is January 5, 2017. I enclose links with
further details.

[DMANET] CfP: LION 11, Eleventh Learning and Intelligent Optimization Conference

===== CALL FOR PAPERS =====

LION 11, Eleventh Learning and Intelligent Optimization Conference

Submission deadline: December 18, 2016

Conference dates: 19-21 June, 2017

Conference location: Nizhny Novgorod, Russia

More info: http://intelligent-optimization.org/lion11/


===== Scope =====


Practitioners using heuristic algorithms for hard optimization problems are confronted with the burden of selecting the most appropriate method, in many cases through expensive algorithm configuration and parameter tuning. Scientists seek theoretical insights and demand a sound experimental methodology for evaluating algorithms and assessing strengths and weaknesses. This effort requires a clear separation between the algorithm and the experimenter, who, in too many cases, is "in the loop" as a motivated intelligent learning component. LION deals with designing and engineering ways of "learning" about the performance of different techniques, and ways of using past experience about the algorithm behavior to improve performance in the future. Intelligent learning schemes for mining the knowledge obtained online or offline can improve the algorithm design process and simplify the applications of high-performance optimization methods. Combinations of different algorithms can further improve the robustness and performance of the individual components.

This meeting, which continues the successful LION series, explores the intersections and uncharted territories between machine learning, artificial intelligence, mathematical programming and algorithms for hard optimization problems. Russia has a long tradition in optimization theory, computational mathematics and "intelligent learning techniques" (in particular cybernetics and statistics). The location of LION11 in Nizhny is an occasion to meet researchers and consolidate research and human links. In internet time the value of a conference must go well beyond presenting scientific papers. In particular, we are discussing and planning:


- Contests in continuous and discrete optimization.
- Sessions dedicated to commercial software and open source initiatives.
- Parallel computing, supercomputing, and cloud for "big optimization".
- Elevator pitches about new and crazy ideas (also by PhD students).
- Tutorials about methods and software.


===== Submission Instructions =====


Please prepare your paper in English using the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) template. Papers must be submitted in PDF.

Types of Submissions

When submitting a paper to LION11, authors are required to select one of the following three types of papers:

* Long paper: original novel and unpublished work (max. 15 pages in LNCS format);
* Short paper: an extended abstract of novel work (max. 6 pages in LNCS format);
* Work for oral presentation only (no page restriction; any format). For example, work already published elsewhere, which is relevant and which may solicit fruitful discussion at the conference.


===== Publication Details =====


Post-conference proceedings are published by Springer-Verlag in its LNCS series. A special issue of a scientific journal with invited extended version of the best papers is being planned.


===== Further Information =====


Up-to-date information will be published on the web site
http://intelligent-optimization.org/lion11/. For information
about local arrangements, registration forms, etc., please refer to the
above-mentioned web site or contact the local organizers.

LION 11 will be collocated with the 7th International Conference on Network Analysis (June 22-24, 2017).

[DMANET] CFP: Ieee CEC2017 Special SessiononModelReductioninMulti-Objective and Robust Design Optimization

* Apologies if you received multiple copies



* Please kindly forward to those who may be interested.


***


IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation 2017, Donostia - San Sebastián, Spain, June 5-8, 2017

***


Special Session on Model Reduction in Multi-Objective and Robust Design Optimization


https://sites.google.com/site/adloptimization/home


***


Submission deadline: January 16, 2017.


***


IEEE CEC 2017 is a world-class conference that aims to bring together researchers and practitioners in the field of evolutionary computation and computational intelligence from all around the globe. The special session aims to promote research on theoretical and practical aspects of multi-objective optimization, surrogate assisted optimization and robust design optimization, etc.



*Scope and Motivations*


With model reduction, e.g. Proper Orthogonal Decomposition (POD, also called Principal Components Analysis, PCA) based model reduction, expenses of optimization process can be greatly reduced. Take the standard ZDT series test functions for example, it takes around 20 iterations for the MOO with POD model reduction to search the true Pareto front. The model reduction can also be used in surrogate assisted optimization and evidence approximation. With model reduction, surrogate and evidence computation can be constructed on a reduced data set, thus the sample size can be greatly reduced.



The optimization with model reduction shows advantages over conventional MOOs and can be potentially extended to the scenarios such as optimization problems with many objectives. However, to implement successfully the methods in design optimization with expensive model under uncertainty, a series of issues such as evidence approximation, model fidelity management, optimization algorithm and the strategy to integrate them, etc. should be resolved. We therefore propose the special issue on Model Reduction in Multi-objective and Robust Optimization.



Scope and Topic:


The session seeks to promote discussion and presentation of related novel works. Topics may include, but are not limited to:

Multi-objective optimization Many-objective optimization Robust design optimization Multi-Fidelity optimization Uncertainty modeling Parameter reduction Data mining in Multi-objective and Many-objective Optimization Model fidelity management Surrogate of expensive model Model reduction in Multi-objective and Many-objective Optimization Infill strategy of surrogate Surrogate assisted optimization Evidence approximation of epistemic uncertainty Multi-objective robust optimization under uncertainty Applications of design optimization with model reduction, particularly the aerospace engineering design Preliminary space mission design under uncertainty Multi-objective optimization in preliminary space mission design
