CSCESM2014: International Conference on Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Social Media
12-14 December 2014, Thessaloniki, Greece
The International Conference on Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Social Media (CSCESM2014) will be held over three days, with presentations delivered by researchers from the international community, including presentations from keynote speakers and state-of-the-art lectures.
All registered papers will be included in SDIWC Digital Library, and in the proceedings of the conference. All submitted papers will be reviewed by a minimum of two reviewers. The published proceedings will be indexed in ResearchBib ProQuest, and Google Scholar Databases, in addition, they will be reviewed for possible inclusion within the INSPEC, EI, DBLP, Microsoft Academic Research, ResearchGate, and Google Scholar Databases.
Implementing the Science and Innovation Strategy
29 January 2015, London, UK
The UK Government's Innovation Strategy is due to be released alongside the 2014 Autumn Statement. This timely conference will bring together key policymakers with stakeholders central to the strategy's implementation to discuss the likely impact of the proposals and the challenges for putting policy into practice.
At this early stage we expect topics for discussion to focus on priorities for public spending on science, efforts to boost private investment in R&D and further steps Government can take to support business and university collaboration to increase the commercialisation of UK research. Sessions will also include discussion on the the impact that Government's focus on 'eight great technologies' has had so far and the next steps for developing these technologies in the UK.
Addressing the STEM skills gap - progression to university, employer engagement & postgrad training
25 February 2015, London, UK
Timed to follow the publication of the 'one year on' report of the Perkins' Review of Engineering Skills, expected in late 2014, delegates at this conference will assess progress made by the sector to close the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) skills gap by encouraging more young people to study these subjects and take up careers in related industries.
The conference also coincides with the Government's Your Life campaign, announced by the Chancellor in May 2014, which aims to increase the number of young people, particularly women, studying STEM subjects by 50% over the next three years.
The future for Open Access and the move towards Open Data
26 March 2015, London
This conference is timed to follow the publication of RCUK's review of the impact of Open Access so far - expected early 2015 - and will focus on key remaining implementation issues as well as looking forward to next steps for policy in light of the UK government's stated aim of adopting an Open Data culture for publicly funded research.
Delegates will discuss ways universities, academics and publishers can maximise the potential of Open Access and raise awareness of its uses among the public and businesses - and ways forward for sharing best practice across the sector. They will also assess how Open Access has been implemented in practice since the Finch Review.

European Biofuels Technology Platform - 6th Stakeholder Plenary Meeting
14-15 October 2014, Brussels, Belgium
The EBTP 6th Stakeholder Plenary Meeting (SMP6) - Biofuels for Low Carbon Transport and Energy Security - will take place at the Diamant Conference Centre, Brussels, on 14-15 October 2014. The meeting will start around midday on the 14th and conclude in the early afternoon on the 15th, with the aim of maximizing opportunities for networking and discussion.
The SPM6 Speaker Programme can be found on the website. Entrance to SPM6 is free for all European biofuels stakeholders from industry, academia, research organisations, common interest groups or other associations with an interest in biofuels production and use. The conference capacity is limited to 200 participants and attendance is subject to successful registration. You can register via this link: http://www.biofuelstp.eu/forms/spm6regform.html
3rd GRF One Health Summit 2014
5-8 October 2014, Davos, Switzerland
The 3rd GRF One Health Summit will further develop and strengthen the One Health paradigm and its global movement. In particular this 3rd global gathering will focus on the added value of a global One Health approach and a stronger involvement of the private sector and policy.
The deadline for abstract submission is extended to 30 April 2014. Submit your abstract now on one of the conference topics.
ExpeER International Conference 2014
24-25 September 2014, Paris
The Earth's rapidly changing environment is putting critical ecosystem services at risk. There are many challenges involved in understanding global environmental changes, and in providing societies with the policy-relevant knowledge base to deal with them. These challenges will reach across many aspects of scientific endeavour.
In this context the Experimentation in Ecosystem Research conference will provide a platform for discussions on cutting-edge technological tools, large-scale integrative experimental design, technical constraints, data access and last but not least ecosystem modelling. The conference will attract speakers and delegates from around the world and will offer opportunities to reinforce global cooperation. Main topics Grand challenges: With the current set of Experimental Research infrastructures in ecosystem science, do we have the capacity to tackle the grand challenges of today and tomorrow? In vitro and in natura : How realistic are they, and how they can be better linked? Technologies: Which emerging technologies could enhance (or are needed for) the performance and services offered by our RIs? Data: Towards an e-infrastructure for ecosystem research - challenges and opportunities Modelling: How accurate is our capacity to forecast and upscale, and what is missing? How can we communicate uncertainty? How do we strike the right balance between modelling and experiments?
Virtual Physiological Human Conference 2014
9-12 September 2014, Trondheim, Norway
The Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) is very pleased to host the 3rd VPH conference by the Virtual Physiological Human Institute. This biannual conference series grew out of the FP7 Virtual Physiological Human Network of Excellence. It has become one of the major instruments for maintaining the coherence and momentum of the highly multidisciplinary VPH community.
The members of the VPH community subscribe to the view that substantially improved healthcare can only be achieved through converged efforts of the life sciences, the mathematical sciences and engineering. On 14 January 2014 in Strasbourg, Members of the European Parliament specifically endorsed the work of the VPH Institute by recognising the role of the VPH initiative towards improving healthcare in their eHealth Action Plan 2012-2020. VPH2014 participants may thus enjoy the rare claim that they contribute to an initiative that has earned the support of the elected representatives of EU citizens and is directly supported in EU policy.
