Workshops Description and Topics
Workshop on Applied Statistics and Data Analysis using Computer Science ? ASDACS
Applied Statistics and Data Analysis are areas that include a vast number of techniques developed in Computer Science such as numerical analysis, database methodology, computer graphics, software engineering and human-computer interface. A research, based on a certain theory regarding the topic under investigation, can propose some statements or hypothesis about the reasons of certain behaviour. The next step consists in testing some predictions with suitable experiments where several questions must be answered in order to obtain data. Depending on the outcomes of the experiment, the theory on which the hypotheses and predictions were based will be supported or not. By the nature of this line of scientific investigation the statistical methods assumes a major importance to determining the validity of empirical research. It is also important to quantify findings and present them with appropriate indicators of measurement. Several areas such as Medicine, Therapies, Biochemical Technology, Engineering and Economics relate Statistical Knowledge and Computer Science in order to analyse data obtained in the context of empirical research. This workshop will provide researchers and practitioners a forum for exchanging ideas, experiences, problems understanding and visions for the future. The workshop will also provide a platform for researchers and developers to present results using the available tools and software packages for data analysis and to identify the problems in the theory and practice of empirical research recognizing future developments.

Workshop on Internet of Things ? IoT
Internet of Things (IoT) only take off if combined with cloud computing and with a big ?mountain? of sensors and actuators embedded in the environment able to collect, monitor and transfer data from real objects to databases or caches and vice-versa. This huge quantity of information generated by sensors, or targeted at actuators, should be streamed to any number of devices and services just in time. This means that there will be a lot of data navigating in the network infrastructure that needs to be promptly processed so that operators and companies can ensure that information is always updated. Also, privacy and security issues must be properly addressed. The cloud computing can help to handle massive volumes of data while remaining accessible from anywhere for any device. Information can be extracted from massive data using Big Data and Cloud technologies, in a secure and safe way, and clouding is one technology capable of handling this data and delivering in real time. The Internet of Things is becoming a reality, however it still has some way to go before it reaches maturity, but is getting there and cloud computing will certainly be one driver force to get there. The Workshop will primarily focus on IoT enabling technologies that advance the research in the area of Internet of Things.
