8 June 2020 HI4NLP, Workshop on Hybrid Intelligence for Natural Language Processing Tasks (co-located at ECAI-2020)

Santiago de Compostela, Galicia, Spain

There have been spectacular advances in many tasks of natural language processing (NLP) by making use of artificial intelligence (IA) techniques such as machine/deep learning (M/DL). However, these improvements do not affect all NLP tasks, specifically those that require deep linguistic knowledge, natural language understanding, semantic inference and reasoning. In hybrid architectures, M/DL approaches co-exist with symbol-manipulation as symbolic models seem to play an important role in inference and reasoning about abstract knowledge.

We call hybrid intelligence (HI) those architectures that integrate symbolic information into statistical or neural-based models so as to allow machines to learn new knowledge in a more 'intelligent' way by endowing them with common sense and deep understanding. The main aim of HI in NLP is to inject deep and structured linguistic knowledge (not just annotated text) into M/DL models so as to develop hybrid architectures for NLP tasks. In more general terms, the concept of HI consists of combining machine and human intelligence to overcome the shortcomings of existing AI systems. Abstract and structured knowledge from specialists can be used not just as training data to learn uninterpretable black-box models, but also to design the models themselves by making them more transparent, easy to interpret by humans, and more efficient for specific purposes.

HI4NLP will provide a forum for discussing about exciting research on HI methodology for NLP tasks. It is open to any contribution that requires deep semantic analysis, such as semantic relation extraction, discourse analysis, argument mining, rumour detection, and so on. Strategies can combine statistical or neural-based models with symbolic information based on propositions, regular patterns, rules, or whatever language resource aimed at representing abstract and structured knowledge.

25–26 June 2020 19th European Conference on Cyber Warfare and Security (ECCWS 2020)

Chester, UK

While the current geopolitical situation and the wave of incidents disclosed in the past years (such as the Mirai botnet, Stuxnet and Blackenergy, among others) has helped promoting general awareness about the impact of cyber-attacks on a variety of digital assets, from online services to critical infrastructures, there is still a lot of work to be done. This situation is further aggravated by trends such as the increasing popularity of all kinds of connected, Internet-of-Things (IoT)- based devices, deployed almost everywhere, from household LANs to Industrial Automation and Control Systems (IACS).

This scenario constitutes a game-changer for protection frameworks and strategies, as infrastructure boundaries are pushed beyond the monolithic, self-hosted and stakeholder-centric model towards distributed and capillary service and device deployments involving several domains, such as cloud, telecommunications infrastructure and utility providers. Such systems need to be securely managed, monitored and configured, while preventing risks arising and from cyberattacks, intrusions and malware, compromising their operation or resulting in disasters.

Collaboration is key to bring together all the interested entities and individuals, such as researchers, telecommunications operators, utilities, security solution providers and even defense organizations, in order to better understand how to work together towards establishing an optimal defense framework. From this perspective, the ECCWS provides a privileged forum for technical exchange about the study, management, development and implementation of systems and concepts to combat cyber warfare or to improve information systems security. There are several strong strands of research and interest that are developing in the area including the understanding of threats and risks to information systems, the development of a strong security culture, as well as incident detection and post incident investigation.

2–4 September 2020 Interdisciplinary Information Management Talks (IDIMT 2020)

Kutná Hora, Czech Republic

The world is increasingly dependent on complex, software intensive systems. Due to their multiple influences on all segments of our society they have to be analysed, planned, and designed in an interdisciplinary fashion.

In the 27 years of their history the IDIMT-conferences have established themselves as a truly interdisciplinary and international forum for the exchange of concepts and visions in the area of complex and/or software intensive systems, management and engineering of information and knowledge, systemic thinking, business engineering, and related topics. The increasing pervasiveness of systems and the related importance of information as a vital resource requires the consideration of synergies in an interdisciplinary and holistic cooperation of various disciplines such as systems engineering, electronics,, management techniques, sociology, business, and education.

IDIMT involves a multi-national, multidisciplinary audience in discussing up-to-date and evolving topics and issues. The conference will follow the well-established pattern of a single stream of sessions, each introduced by a keynote and followed by shorter position papers, their full text being included in the proceedings. At least 20 minutes are set aside at each session for a plenary discussion.
