Special Sessions

Deep Learning Based Perception for Autonomous Systems

Special Session Name:
Deep Learning Based Perception for Autonomous Systems

Organizers:
Sergiu Nedevschi - Technical University of Cluj-Napoca
In the framework of the PN-III-P4-ID-PCCF-2016-0180 SEPCA project

The goal of this special session is to present principled mathematical and computational models in order to construct the next generation of autonomous vehicles able of integrated visual perception tasks based on computer vision and machine learning.

HiPerGRID

Special Session Name:
HiPerGRID - High Performance Grid Middleware

Organizers:
Nicolae Tapus, Valentin Cristea, Florin Pop - University Politehnica of Bucharest
and the management team of the Cloud Cercetare UTCN – CLOUDUT project in the POC/398/1/1/ action (http://cloudut.utcluj.ro/en/).

HiPerGRID is an annual event dedicated to dissemination and evaluation of current advances in Grid, Cloud and Datacenters research. Following the success of last years HiPerGRID invited session held in conjunction with the International Conference on Intelligent Computer Communication and Processing (ICCP) organised in Cluj-Napoca, Romania by Technical University of Cluj-Napoca, aims at providing a venue and an open forum for researchers, designers, practitioners, developers, and industrial / governmental partners to present, discuss, and exchange related ideas, results, and experiences in the area of distributed systems. HiPerGRID supports community of researchers, developers, practitioners as well as current and potential Grid and Cloud users who work in the field of grid and cloud technologies and their applications.

Middleware refers to resource management, execution management, data management, security, monitoring and discovery, accounting, and other functions required by Virtual Organizations to operate effectively a shared services environment. Obtaining high performance Grid and Cloud Middleware through new, innovative solutions is a challenge of today research, due to the strong requirements imposed by the dynamic behavior of the user and resource communities.

The event also aims at stimulating synergies between Grid and Cloud communities and related technology communities (P2P, Service Orientation, Workflow management,etc.).
