3–5 April 2019 Single-Molecule Sensors and NanoSystems International Conference – S3IC 2019

Munich, Germany

Sensor systems have emerged that exhibit extraordinary sensitivity for detecting physical, chemical, and biological entities at the micro/nanoscale. Particularly exciting is the detection and analysis of molecules on miniature devices that have many possible applications in health, environment, analysis, and security. A new class of label-free micro and nanosensors are starting to emerge that allow us to observe dynamic processes at the single molecule level directly, with unprecedented spatial- and temporal resolution and without significantly affecting the natural and functional movements of the molecules. Micro- and nanosensors by virtue of their small interaction length probe molecules over a dynamic range often inaccessible by other techniques. Their small size enables an exceedingly high sensitivity, and the application of quantum optical measurement techniques can allow us to approach or surpass classical limits of detection. Advances in optical and electrical measurement methodology, laser interferometry, quantum optics, micro/nanofluidics, control of molecules and reactions at the nanoscale, DNA origami/synthetic molecular machines, in-vivo and wearable sensing materials, they all contribute to the rapid progress of the field of Single Molecule Sensors and nanoSystems. It is this convergence of previously often disparate fields that is accelerating the advancements in micro and nano-sensing.

This conference will bring together researchers in the rapidly advancing field of Single Molecule Sensors and nanoSystems. The conference focusses on the most recent advances in micro and nano-sensing techniques that have either demonstrated single-molecule detection or that claim single-molecule detection capability on sensor chips in the longer term.

Topics:
Single-Molecule Devices and Sensor Technologies
Single-Molecule Spectroscopy
Quantum Limits in Biodetection
Biophotons and Biophotonics Sensors
Molecular Machines, Synthetic Biology and DNA Origami
In-vivo and wearable Sensor Devices, Materials and Systems
Integrated Sensor Chips and multiplexed Sensing
Modelling and Analysis of Sensors and Systems
Micro/Nanofluidics and chemical control at the Nanoscale

3–6 September 2019 GeoInformation for Disaster Management (GI4DM 2019)

Prague, Czech Republic

The world has experienced several devastating disasters in this century, first an Earthquake of a very high magnitude and then Tsunami afterwards or heavy rain flows, followed by floods and landslides are common occurrences. These are conditions where even the most advanced EWS cannot make a significant difference. So, most of the potential to mitigate such a disaster in the future would have to be in the field of vulnerability reduction by adaptation, e.g. in urban planning and construction, based on risk and vulnerability maps.

Another question is the quality and coordination of disaster mapping activities to support response measures. Here we should coordinate all efforts globally as most of the disasters nowadays affect Trans boundaries. So the Geoinformation technologies will and better expressed should help in all facets of Disaster Management. An international effort in this direction is the Gi4DM series of Conferences, which was held for the first time in 2005 in Delft after the Indian Ocean Tsunami and repeated every year in almost all parts of the world. The upcoming conference in next September 2019 will demonstrate the last international advances in Geoinformation regarding the Disaster Management.

The MindCare Community leverages the opportunities offered by the technological advancements to provide an improved diagnosis, a better support to both healthy subjects and patients, and also to extend the theoretical knowledge.

In addition to its timeliness, the event comprises a broad range of interests. The theme invites ideas on how to achieve more efficient use of resources based largely on the IoT-based machine-to-machine (M2M) interactions of millions of smart meters and sensors in the smart grid specific communication networks such as home area networks, building area networks, and neighborhood area networks. The smart grid also encompasses IoT technologies, which monitor transmission lines, manage substations, integrate renewable energy generation (e.g., solar or wind), and utilize hybrid vehicle batteries. Through these technologies, the authorities can smartly identify outage problems, and intelligently schedule the power generation and delivery to the customers. Furthermore, the smart grid should teach us a valuable lesson that security must be designed in from the start of any IoT deployment. Since there is an alarming lack of standards to address the protection of the secret keys and/or the life-cycle security of the embedded smart grid devices, intruders could use conventional attack techniques to breach the security just as in any other IoT deployment.

4–6 February 2018 1st International Conference on Health Monitoring of Civil & Maritime Structures - HeaMES 2018

London, UK

There is a need for the development of activities related to structural health monitoring , not only in civil but also in maritime structures. Maximising the availability and productivity of a marine vessel, whilst operating safely and with minimal impact on the environment, is a major concern of operators. Ships such as FPSOs have certain constraints, loading characteristics and damage consequences that make them different to other offshore installations and conventional ships, and often more challenging to maintain and operate. Market research show that there is a need for SHM which could handle structural & fatigue analysis and risk based inspection to address the structural in-tegrity monitoring of offshore structures. Currently, operators are using multiple software’s to carry out integrity and inspection planning. Radical developments telecommunication and sensor technology are about to transform the way that asset management is conceived and carried out. Sensors and structural health monitoring system are becoming a normal part of buildings. Sensors can be permanently con-nected to a distributed management network so that owners, users, and in general, all those involved in the management process - con-nected via the Internet - can check conditions during construction and operation. Whereas today the structural engineer conceives the sin-gle building or bridge as a stand-alone project, in future it is likely that structures will be regarded as cells of a complex infrastructure net-work. Design specifications, real-time operation, and any decision on maintenance, upgrading and reconstruction of the single cell will re-flect the management policy of the whole system, properly accounting for concepts such as cost, risk and sustainability.

HeaMAS 2018 provides an ideal platform for industry leading researchers, technology developers, industrial players and supply chain part-ners to converge. Bringing the pioneers together the conference aims to promote the methodologies, exchange of ideas and the way for-ward to commercialisation.

19–23 March 2018 14th Workshop on Context and Activity Modeling and Recognition (CoMoRea'18)

Athens, Greece

There is a growing interest in context-aware applications that intelligently support user tasks by acting autonomously on behalf of users. Among others, activity of the user is one important context. Behavior of context-aware applications depends not only on their internal state and user interactions but also on the context sensed during their execution. Some early models of context information already exist, however many research issues related to context information modeling are still not fully addressed. Existing context models vary in types of context information they can represent; e.g., either the user’s current situation or the physical environment. A more generic approach to context modeling is needed in order to capture various features of context information including a variety of types of context information, dependencies between context information, quality of context information and context histories. Tools for modeling and reasoning with the social context of groups of people are also needed. In addition, to ease software engineering problems, appropriate abstractions are necessary to support discovery and reuse of context information as well as scalable methods of context processing and management.

This workshop’s aim is to advance the state of the art in context modeling and reasoning and discuss fundamental issues in context processing and management. The goal is to identify concepts, theories and methods applicable to context modeling and context reasoning as well as system-oriented issues related to the design and implementation of context-aware systems.

In particular, the following topics are of interest to this workshop:

  • Context modeling techniques and domain-specific context models
  • Ontology-based approaches to context modeling and reasoning
  • Ontologies of Activities and Context
  • Hybrid context models and advanced issues in context modeling, including issues of information quality, ambiguity, and provenance
  • Context reasoning algorithms, their complexity and accuracy
  • Discovery, reuse, privacy, security and trust of context information
  • Distributed and scalable context management
  • Tool support for context modeling and development of context model-based applications
  • Machine learning and reasoning techniques for context and activity recognition
  • High Level Activity Recognition from Sensor Data
  • Machine Learning and Computer Vision for Context and Activity Recognition
  • Reference Datasets and Benchmarks for Activity Recognition and Context Reasoning

19–21 September 2018 5th International Conference on Physiological Computing Systems (PhyCS 2018)

Selille, Spain

Physiological data in its different dimensions, either bioelectrical, biomechanical, biochemical or biophysical, and collected through specialized biomedical devices, video and image capture or other sources, is opening new boundaries in the field of human-computer interaction into what can be defined as Physiological Computing. PhyCS is the annual meeting of the physiological interaction and computing community, and serves as the main international forum for engineers, computer scientists and health professionals, interested in outstanding research and development that bridges the gap between physiological data handling and human-computer interaction. PhyCS brings together people interested in creating novel interaction devices, adaptable interfaces, algorithms and tools, through the study, planning, and design of interfaces between people and computers that are supported by multimodal biosignals. We seek contributions that relate synergetic disciplines such as biomedical engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, affective computing, accessibility, usability, computer graphics, arts, etc. Researchers attending PhyCS seek to extend the state-of-the-art by harnessing the power of physiological data to refine the symbiosis between humans and computers in such way that the resulting interactive experiences lead to richer and improved outcomes. This may involve the design of new wearable devices that make physiological data acquisition more pervasive, the design of user interfaces capable of recognizing and adapting to changes in the physiological state of the user, and / or the creation of algorithms to enable robust and seamless control of computational resources using physiological data sources as input. We call for original submissions that describe novel technologies and applications in this field, and greatly encourage authors to complement their oral and poster communications with demonstrations showing novel physiological computing and interaction concepts or systems.

6–8 October 2010 16th International Workshop on Thermal investigations of ICs and Systems

Barcelona, Spain

THERMINIC Workshops are a series of events to discuss the essential thermal questions of microelectronic microstructures and electronic parts in general. These questions are becoming more and more crucial with the increasing element density of circuits packaged together and with the move to nanotechnology. These trends are calling for thermal simulation, monitoring and cooling. Thermal management is expected to become an increasingly dominating factor of a system’s cost. The growing power dissipated in a package, the mobile parts of microsystems raise new thermal problems to be solved in the near future necessitating the regular discussion of the experts in these fields. Finally, there is an increasing need for accurate assessment of the boundary conditions used in the analysis of electronic parts, which requires a concurrent solution of the thermal behaviour of the whole system. This year THERMINIC will address in addition to the “traditional” thermal management problems, also stress and thermal-stress-related-reliability issues, both in micro- and opto-electronics fields. These issues, including various nanotechnology applications, are of significant importance and of high interest to the engineering community engaged in the field of thermal phenomena in “high-tech” systems.
