Conflict-free Replicated Data Types: An Overview

Nuno Manuel Ribeiro Preguiça, Universidade Nova de Lisboa – Abstract: Internet-scale distributed systems often replicate data at multiple geographic locations to provide low latency and high availability, despite node and network failures. Geo-replicated systems that adopt a weak consistency model allow replicas to temporarily diverge,…

BADA – Big Automotive Data Analytics

Ahmad Al-Shishtawy, RISE Research Institutes of Sweden – Abstract: The BADA project fuses big data analytics with the automotive industry in Sweden. It is a collaboration between RISE SICS, Volvo cars, Volvo trucks, Scania, and the Swedish Transport Agency. The goal of the project is…

Learning with Sociable Robots and Artifacts

Sandra Y. Okita, Teachers College, Columbia University – Abstract: People often turn to others to improve their own learning. Technological artifacts (e.g. humanoid robots, pedagogical agents/avatars) often consist of human-like qualities ranging across appearance, behavior, and intelligence. These features often elicit a social response from…

Atomic Transaction Commit for Modern Data Stores

Alexey Gotsman, IMDEA Software Institute in Madrid – Abstract: Modern data stores often need to provide both high scalability and strong transactional semantics. They achieve scalability by partitioning data into shards and fault-tolerance by replicating each shard across several servers. A key component of such…

TerraHidro: Modelação Hidrológica Distribuída

O sistema TerraHidro, voltado para modelagem…

SCHOOLS ARE STUCK, CAN GAMES FIX THEM?

Francisco Miranda, SpotGames – Abstract: Today’s children and young people are increasingly disinvesting from their school paths. However, one approach has been dramatically effective in motivating all young people to pursue, in a dedicated and persistent way, personal (though seemingly virtual) self-improvement goals – games….

Scalability and Efficiency in Graph Mining

Wagner Meira Jr, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais – Abstract: Despite significant research, graph mining remains a challenging task, due to characteristics such as its computational complexity and the large spectrum of models that may be mined. In this talk we discuss some of these…
