Compute 2011 & Elements 2011, the annual conference of ACM Bangalore Chapter, will be held on 25th and 26th March, 2011. This will be the fourth in the series of Compute, the flagship conference of ACM Bangalore Chapter.
It is widely recognized that Information Technology and applied research in Computer Science will play an increasingly vital role in business and industry. This is particularly true in the area of information management and knowledge services. There has been an explosive growth of digital content and handheld devices and vast networks of sensors have become ubiquitous. As a result of these developments, massive amounts of data and information are becoming available for numerical and symbolic processing and analysis. This information is a virtual goldmine for society, government and industry, but the task of extracting, analyzing and storing relevant information and making it available to the right user (or application) at the right time poses formidable technological challenges, many of which remain unsolved. The aim of this conference is to bring together researchers, practitioners and technology market movers in order to advance the state of the art and practice in computer science research as it applies to these technological challenges and to help bridge the digital divide. We invite submission from both researchers and practitioners in the broad area of contemporary information management. An indicative list of appropriate topics is as follows:
- Search the Internet and the Enterprise Intranet
- Information Lifecycle Management
- Data Management
- Business Intelligence and Data Warehousing
- Data Mining
- Text mining: Extraction of Sentiments, Opinions, Entities, Facts and Events
- Text Summarization and Classification
- Structured-unstructured Information Integration
- Image Mining and Classification
- Information Standards
- Information as a Service
- Anywhere Anytime Access to Information (mobility, pervasive computing)
- Artificial Intelligence and its role in Information Management
- Information Accessibility/Usability (especially for Web)
- Cloud based Information Storage, Access and Retrieval
- Semantic Web, Web 3.0, and Semantic Technologies
- Web 2.0, and Rich Internet Applications
- High Performance Information Management, including Data Grids, Low Latency App
The theme for ‘elements 2011’, the first annual conference of Bangalore ACM SIGGRAPH, is ‘beyond today, tomorrow’. The focus of this conference is three fold:
- Bring the best of research and development happening today that will form the defining moment tomorrow, not only for Computer Graphics but Computing in general, and hence the theme, ‘BEYOND TODAY, TOMORROW’.
- Bring together thought leaders from industry and academia to talk about the innovation happening today that will define the future, tomorrow.
- Bring together enthusiasts consisting of researchers, technologists, gamers, artists, developers, filmmakers, scientists, practitioners, market movers and other professionals who share an interest in computer graphics and interactive techniques.
The first edition of ‘elements 2011’ will have six invited talks and two workshops in the area of computer graphics and interactive techniques, comprising
- core topics: modeling, animation, rendering, and imaging
- related areas: hardware/GPU, information/scientific visualization, human-computer interaction, computer vision, and applications such as film special effects and computer games.
- general topic, though, relevant to the community
