The ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems 2014 is the twenty-second event in a series of symposia and workshops dedicated to GIS. ACM SIGSPATIAL 2014 will take place from Nov 4 to 7 in Dallas, Texas, with the aim of bringing together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners to engage in interdisciplinary discussions and to foster collaborative research on all aspects of geographic information systems.
The ACM SIGSPATIAL International Conference on Advances in Geographic Information Systems 2014 (ACM SIGSPATIAL 2014) is the twenty-second event in a series of symposia and workshops that began in 1993 with the aim of bringing together researchers, developers, users, and practitioners in relation to novel systems based on geo-spatial data and knowledge, and fostering interdisciplinary discussions and research in all aspects of geographic information systems.
The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) has announced the names of the 2013 ACM Fellows, an honor bestowed upon inidividuals who have achieved significant advances in computing research and development.
The contributions of the 50 members named as 2013 Fellows span multiple disciplines within the field of computing. They hail from the world’s leading universities, corporations and research labs.
WMSCI 2014 is an international forum for scientists and engineers, researchers and consultants, theoreticians and practitioners in the fields of Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics. The forum focuses into specific disciplinary research, and also in multi, inter, and trans-disciplinary studies and projects. One of its aims is to relate disciplines, fostering analogical thinking and, hence, producing input to the logical thinking.
Complexity, Cybernetics, and Informing Science/Engineering are increasingly being related on the conceptual, methodological, and practical dimensions. T. Grandon Gill’s book (Informing Business: Research and Education on a Rugged Landscape) shows the strong and important relationships between Complexity and Informing Science (specifically academic informing), and the potentiality of these relationships in supporting the integration of academic activities: Research, Education, and Consulting or real Life Problem Solving.
Education (cognitive development) and training (performance in a specific skill) are different but highly related notions. They have common means to achieve their objectives as it is the case of, for example, teaching, learning and e-learning. Informatics is supporting both of them with an increasing frequency and effectiveness in more and more activities and domains. The objective of ICETI 2014 is to bring together researchers, professionals and practitioners from the three areas so they can share their knowledge and experiences in an multi- and inter-disciplinary intellectual climate.
The comprehensive and profound impact of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) on society is a very known fact. In turn, private, public and academic organizations are generating new requirements and demands that must be addressed by ICT. Demand-Pull and Technological-Push are interacting with each other through cybernetic loops. Society and ICT are co-regulating each other via negative Feedback Loops and synergistically co-evolving via positive feedback loops.
The purpose of the Fourth Ibero-American Conference on Complexity, Informatics and Cybernetics (CICIC 2014) is to bring together academics and practitioners, researchers and experts from the three areas to submit the results of their research and experiences in a disciplinary field and in a multidisciplinary forum for the purpose of an exchange of ideas and opinions that can enable the emergence of analogies (analogical thinking source and entry point of logical thinking), and promote interdisciplinary communication and cross-fertilization.
The 5th International Multi-Conference on Complexity, Informatics and Cybernetics (IMCIC 2014) is held jointly with The 20th International Conference on Information Systems Analysis and Synthesis (ISAS 2014).
