Title of invited lecture: Big Data, Big Data Mining and Data Science

Abstract. At present, Big Data becomes reality that no one can ignore. Big Data is our environment whenever we need to make a decision. Big Data is a buzz word that makes everyone understands how important it is. Big Data shows a big opportunity for academia, industry and government. Big Data then is a big challenge for all parties. This talk will discuss some fundamental issues of Big Data problems, such as data heterogeneity vs. decision heterogeneity, data stream research and data-driven decision management. Furthermore, this talk will provide a number of real-life Bid Data Applications. In the conclusion, the talk suggests a number of open research problems in Data Science, which is a growing field beyond Big Data.


Prof. Fuad Aleskerov

National Reasearch University Higher School of Economics, Moscow, Russia


Title of invited lecture: Choice Procedures in Big Data Analysis

Abstract. A set of choice procedures is presented for an analysis of big data, specially, in the search problem. These procedures include different versions of a superposition of super-threshold choice rules, and several other rules, including Pareto-rule and uni-criterial rule.
It is shown that the proposed procedures perform better than known procedures, e.g., Support Vector Machines. A comparison of different procedures on Microsoft Data is presented.

Title of invited lecture: Tools for Collaborative Decision Making

Abstract. Decision-making has evolved recently thanks to the introduction of information and communication technologies in many organizations, which has led to new kinds of decision-making processes, called “collaborative decision-making”, at the organizational and cognitive levels. The author will present the development of the decision-making process in organizations. Decision-aiding and its paradigm of problem solving are defined, showing how decision-makers now need to work in a cooperative way. Definitions of cooperation and associated concepts such as collaboration and coordination are given and a framework of cooperative decision support systems is presented, including intelligent DSS, cooperative knowledge-based systems, workflow, group support systems, collaborative engineering, integrating with a collaborative decision-making model in part or being part of global projects. Several models and experimental studies are also included showing that these new processes have to be supported by new types of tools, several of which are described in order to calculate or simulate solutions or global solutions for decision-making modification. Definitions and new trends for these models are given, along with types of systems.


Prof. Ioan Dumitrache

Title of invited lecture: From Computer Controlled Processes to Intelligent Cyber-Physical Systems

Abstract: The real progresses in computer to computer (C2C), mobile, ad-hoc and wireless communication, in the development of Internet-based service-oriented platforms as well as in sensors and actuators technologies, allows now the creation of wireless sensors and actuators networks (WSAN), which, interacting with embedded control systems give a new dimension and creates new challenges for control applications.

Actually, there are created the technological premises for solving the problem of global optimization for complex processes, including communication, data/ information processing aspects and real-time control.

Quality of Control (QoC) and Quality of Services are designed as integrated behavioral attributes for such networked control systems.

But it is necessary to develop also a new approach in modeling and analysis of such systems, in order to take full advantage from the technology. Such an approach is supposed to take into consideration all dynamical and energetic aspects related to physical processes, integrated with data and information processing and communication performances, as they appear in such networked real-time complex systems.

Naturally evolving from C2 (computer from control), through C4 (computer, communication and cognition for control), the Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) paradigm represents the most recent integrative concept which is providing the framework for abstraction and modeling, design and analysis of complex systems, including physical systems, WSAN, (embedded) control systems and computers.

CPS are engineered systems that are built from and depend upon the synergy of computational and physical components. They bring together two innovation areas: embedded systems and global digital networks. Networked systems are included today in all infrastructures, giving them features of intelligence, but making them, at the same time, more vulnerable.

In this paper will be highlighted relevant aspects of the evolution of control system theory and technology, from C2 towards CPS, underlining the main challenges and research directions and the connections with other fields of interest as mathematics, physics, biology and neurology, which should be taken into account by engineers in order to relies reliable, intelligent, flexible, smart CPS.

There are also included some special applications of CPS in power systems, mobility and advanced production, underlining their high potential for innovation and sustainability.
