Postdoc and PhD positions – Scaling of Urban Forms and Environmental Impacts – Luxembourg

The SCALE-IT-UP project needs a postdoc (3 years) and a PhD student to work at the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER) and at the University of Luxembourg.The project is led by a geographer (Geoffrey Caruso, professor at the University of Luxembourg and LISER) and a physicist (Rémi Lemoy, postdoc at the University of Luxembourg), and will combine approaches from both disciplines to analyse statistically large spatial datasets regarding urban areas and their environmental impacts.

Call for Papers : New methods and epistemologies to explore simulation models

The study of complexity can not be anymore dissociated from intensive computational practices. Modeling and simulation have indeed taken a crucial role in the extraction of knowledge, especially in the study of systems with a high complexity such as socio-technical systems. Quantitative geography is a perfect illustration of how methodological, technical, empirical and theoretical advances necessarily strongly bind together: the use of computation centers in the seventies would be comparable to the current democrati- zation of grid computing which impact dramatically changes the way social science is practiced. The aim of this symposium is take a reflexive positioning on these trends, situate them regarding similar practices, and establish the most crucial future issues to be tackled within that stream of research.

Call for Contributions – CloudCom 2018

CloudCom is the premier conference on Cloud Computing worldwide, attracting researchers, developers, users, students and practitioners from the fields of big data, systems architecture, services research, virtualization, security and privacy, high performance computing, always with an emphasis on how to build cloud computing platforms with real impact.

Call for Papers – LDAV 2018 : Large Data Analysis and Visualization

The 8th IEEE Large Scale Data Analysis and Visualization (LDAV) symposium, to be held in conjunction with IEEE VIS 2018, is specifically targeting methodological innovation, algorithmic foundations, and
possible end-to-end solutions. The LDAV symposium will bring together domain experts, data analysts, visualization researchers, and users to foster common ground for solving both near- and long-term problems.

Happy Hour Conference on Complex Systems
