Open Architecture Control Systems Summer School
29 August - 2 September 2014, Międzyzdroje (Poland)
The iLOAD event will take place in Międzyzdroje, Poland, We would like to host all young researchers who are interested in control system issues and want to extend and share their knowledge and ideas. During our event there will be the possibility to become familiar with the latest trends in programming of National Instruments and ifm electronic equipment. An additional attraction will be a trip to Cargotec factory and visiting laboratories of the West Pomeranian University of Technology.
Use of IB in Biosurfactants
3 September 2014, Berlin, Germany
The BIO-TIC project has organised this workshop with the aim to identify technological, non-technological and market hurdles for the uptake of industrial biotechnology in bio-surfactants and develop recommendations and solutions to overcome the identified hurdles. Input from market, policy and technological experts is crucial to help us develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry and further build on the roadmaps being developed as part of this project.
Biobased surfactants can be produced either from oils and fats via oleochemical production or from sugars, e.g. molasses by fermentation. Biobased surfactants can be used for a wide range of applications, the largest of which are currently detergents, followed by personal care products and industrial and institutional cleaners. The BIO-TIC project estimates that in 2030 the biobased surfactants market in Europe could have a market value of between 0.8 MEUR and 1.8 BEUR. The market value could be greater than this if the various hurdles to biosurfactants are addressed.
1st International Conference on Engineering, Science & Technology Innovation (ICESTI 2014)
10-13 September 2014, Kuta – Bali, Indonesia
ICESTI 2014 will provide a forum for accessing the most up-to-date and authoritative knowledge from both industrial and academic worlds, sharing best practice in the field of Engineering, Science, and Technology towards sustainable development.
The conference will provide an opportunity to highlight recent developments and to identify emerging and future areas of growth in these exciting fields. The first event of this conference series (ICESTI 2014) will be held in Bali, Indonesia, on 10-13 September 2014. ICESTI organizing committee are inviting submissions from scientists, academicians and industry practitioners worldwide.
CO2-based Chemicals Production using Industrial Biotechnology
24 September 2014, Lyon, France
The BIO-TIC project has organised this workshop with the aim to identify technological, non-technological and market hurdles for the uptake of industrial biotechnology in CO2 based chemicals production and develop recommendations and solutions to overcome the identified hurdles. Input from market, policy and technological experts is crucial to help us develop recommendations which best answer the needs of industry and further build on the roadmaps.
CO2 is increasingly being considered by many as a commodity rather than a waste product. The largest current use for CO2 is currently in enhanced oil recovery. However, CO2 holds great potential as a feedstock for chemicals production using IB processes, especially in the EU where the research base is strong and where there is an abundance of CO2 available. CO2 is not part of the food chain so avoids any issues over food v fuel. However, public perception, and logistical and cost challenges in terms of CO2 transport and distribution could hamper the potential of CO2 to be used for chemicals and substantial R&D is needed to bring many opportunities to fruition.

MMME 2014 - International Conference on Mining, Material and Metallurgical Engineering
11-12 August 2014, Prague, Czech Republic
MMME'14 is a comprehensive conference for sharing information, experiences, and advances in various theoretical and applied aspects of mining, material, and metallurgical engineering. We believe that the wide-ranging conferences such as MMME can have significant impacts by bringing together experts from the related different and often separated fields which help create unique opportunities for collaborations and shaping new ideas for experts and researchers.
The 2014 International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation - HPCS 2014
21-25 July 2014, Bologna (Italy)
The HPCS 14 conference is to address, explore and exchange information on the state-of-the-art in high performance and large scale computing systems, their use in modeling and simulation, their design, performance and use, and their impact. In Cooperation with the ACM, IEEE, IFIP.
Robust Manufacturing Conference (RoMaC 2014)
7-9 July 2014, Bremen, Germany
Understanding the cause and effects of multi-scale changes in global production networks is of major interest. New methodological approaches from different science disciplines are promising to contribute to a new-level comprehension of network processes. Scientists and researchers from all disciplines with an interest in Production Planning and Control are welcome to participate and contribute novel ideas focusing on robust manufacturing.
Smart Data Forum
25-26 June 2014, Nice, France
The exponential growth in the volume of personal and professional data raises new challenges. The digital deluge will lead to radically different patterns of behavior on the part of individuals and corporations, revolutionizing service delivery and value creation. Properly processed and analyzed, this data can become “Smart Data”.
Smart Data 2014 is positioned as a think tank for the monetization of digital assets, delivering: • new viewpoints for project initiators in corporate and governmental environments • expert guidance on the protection and analysis of big data • an overview of best practices and the latest solutions.
