Age Difference And Social Solidarity: Managing Diversity In Aging Societies

Website: http://www.differenceandsolidarity.org/2018-wroclaw-conference.html

Age Difference And Social Solidarity SWPS

In partnership with and hosted by the ‚Between Transnational Mobility and Locality’ Research Group, SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities, II Faculty of Psychology, Wrocław, Poland. During the conference that will take place between 9 – 10 July, 2018 such topics will be undertaken:

  • Intergenerational solidarity and social, political and cultural strategies – public, private and NGO – to develop solidarity across generations
  • Generational issues in balancing respecting differences and maintaining social cohesion in contemporary societies
  • Policy and practice differences in meeting the needs of older and younger age groups in the society, with attendant problems in policy areas such as health care, social welfare and pensions, labor and retirement regulation, equality legislation and policies against inequality, and civic and public provision
  • The possible choices in new initiatives, policies and demographic strategies in the management of generational diversity
  • Issues of social solidarity and multi-culturalism in pluralist societies – the challenges of age and fertility differences between migrants, diasporic communities and established  population,
  • Global questions of age and generational change and economic and development change
  • Ethnic and cultural and institutional and kinship differences in understanding in managing ageing and elderly care
  • Ageing societies, Europe and crisis in the EU – the generational implications of migration and refugee crises (and Brexit/separatisms)
  • Ageing, generational change, critical pedagogy and the reconception of life-long learning in the life course

Viruses of Microbes 2018

Website: http://meetings.embo.org/event/18-virus-microbe

Viruses of Microbes

The central theme of the workshops that will take place in July, 9 – 13 is ‘Biodiversity and future applications’ of viruses infecting microbes (algae, archaea, bacteria, fungi, protozoa and viruses). Viruses have always been a key element of microbial diversity and evolution, as well as a tool for molecular biologists to learn more about how the host cell functions. This information has also been put to productive use more recently to control infections and fouling in many areas of our modern life. The conference talks are grouped into sessions covering key areas of ecology, host-virus dynamics, biotechnological, medical aspects, and structural biology. A main objective of this EMBO Workshop is to stimulate new understandings of the role that viruses of microbes play in ecosystems and in the sustainable development of human technologies.

 

12th International Conference on Cryocrystals and Quantum Crystals

Website: http://cc2018.intibs.pl

Organized by Institute for Low Temperature and Structure Research Polish Academy of Sciences. The scope of CC is wide, including, but not limited to, films, nanoscale systems, charged species in cryocrystals, spectroscopy of cryocrystals, ultra-low temperature and high-pressure studies, matrix isolation in cryocrystals, ultrafast dynamics in crystals, order-disorder phenomena, technological applications and instrumentation. The present conference CC-2018 is a continuation of the series which started with meeting in Almaty (Alma-Ata) Kazakhstan. The general approach of the Conference aims at organizing a forum for exchange ideas on various aspects of physical, chemical and technological properties of solidified gases, and gathering together the best experts in the field. The conference will take place between 26 – 31 August, 2018.

ITSHC 2018 International Thermal Spraying and Hardfacing Conference

Website: http://www.itshc.pwr.edu.pl/

ITSHC 2018 International Thermal Spraying and Hardfacing Conference

ITSHC 2018 conference will take place between 26 – 28 September. The aim of the conference is to present the latest researches and developments in the field of thermal spraying, as well as of hardfacing. Papers will be mainly dedicated to: new materials and technologies, properties of coatings and weld deposits, novel characterization methods as well as new industrial applications in different operating conditions. In addition, the problems concern training of specialists, quality and certification system at thermal spraying and hardfacing technologies will be discussed. The session dedicated to generative techniques (with particular emphasis on 3D printing) of metallic materials will be included since this year’s edition. The oral as well as poster sessions are planned. Detailed announcement: http://www.itshc.pwr.edu.pl/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/ITSHC_Announcement_2.pdf

14th International Conference on Grammatical Inference

Organizers of 14th International Conference on Grammatical Inference invite all interested scholars to take part in the event, to be held on September 5 - 7, 2018 at the University of Science and Technology.

The 14th International Conference on Grammatical Inference is to be held in Wrocław, Poland, September 5 – 7, 2018

Academia Europaea Wrocław Knowledge Hub as a platform of communication between local academic institutions and European academic society is passing the news about organized by Professor Olgierd Unold (Wroclaw University of Technology) conference on grammatical inference.

The Organizers of 14th International Conference on Grammatical Inference invite all interested scholars to take part in the event.

ICGI is a conference on all aspects of grammatical inference, including (but not limited to) theoretical and experimental analysis of different models of grammar induction, and algorithms for induction of different classes of languages and automata.
This year the conference will be held in a collocation with a cyclic conference organized by the Polish Bioinformatics Society (https://www.ptbi.org.pl/website/).

The conference focuses on grammatical inference: the field of machine learning applied to discrete combinatorial structures such as strings, trees or graphs. The conference seeks to provide a forum for presentation and discussion of original research papers on all aspects of grammatical inference including, but not limited to:

  • Theoretical aspects of grammatical inference: learning paradigms, learnability results, complexity of learning
  • Efficient learning algorithms for language classes inside and outside the Chomsky hierarchy. Learning tree and graph grammars. Learning distributions over strings, trees or graphs
  • Grammatical inference from strings or trees paired with semantics representations, or learning by situated agents and robots
  • Theoretical and experimental analysis of different approaches to grammar induction, including artificial neural networks, statistical methods, symbolic methods, information-theoretic approaches, minimum description length, complexity-theoretic approaches, heuristic methods, etc.
  • Novel approaches to grammatical inference: induction by DNA computing or quantum computing, evolutionary approaches, new representation spaces, etc.
  • Successful applications of grammatical inference to tasks in natural language processing such as unsupervised parsing, bioinformatics, web interface design, robot navigation, machine translation, pattern recognition, language acquisition, software engineering, computational linguistics, spam and malware detection, cognitive psychology, etc.

Confirmed Speakers:
Prof. Johannes Soeding, Max-Planck-Institut (H-index = 45)
Prof. Colin de la Higuera, Nantes University (H-index = 22)
Prof. Frits W. Vaandrager, Radboud University Nijmegen (H-index = 48)
