Group at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Aalborg with
competencies in the fields of adaptive Web technologies and
personalisation, as
well as the L3S Research Center offer-ing competencies in the field of data
text mining, machine learning and social media data analysis, also related to
health and medicine.

Présentation de la proposition:
The objective of this project is to develop technologies that help to improve
monitoring and detecting public health events early based on informal and
formal knowledge sources avail-able in the Web. Considered data sources
audio data (e.g., radio broadcasts), news articles, and social media data such
as medical Weblogs or forums. In particular, the goal of this work is to fuse
medical semantics and Web 2.0. Formal knowledge (e.g., provided by medical
ontologies such as SNOMED CT or the UMLS) will help to incorporate semantics
into the medical text and data mining process.

PS-AT-2770: http://www.ideal-ist.net/Countries/AT/PS-AT-2770

L?Université d?Innsbruck, université autrichienne recherche des partenaires
Projet: STREP

Dans le défi: 3.6 Computing Systems
Nom provisoire du projet: Parallelisation and Optimisation of Applications for
Multicore Parallel Architectures
Date de clôture: 01/04/2009

This project aims at creating at a sophisticated programming and runtime
environment which will provide a generic and scalable infrastructure for
massively-parallel applications from industry and SMEs. The project will
support and ease development of parallel applications, enhance efficiency of
porting across multiple parallel architectures, as well as reduce the costs
developing and maintaining parallel applications for multicore parallel

Présentation de la proposition:
Existing programming paradigms for parallel computers are too complex and too
low level or too high level at the cost of performance to be achieved on
multicore computers or clusters of multicore processors. Parallelizing and
optimizing programs is thus tedious, time-consuming and error-prone not only
for programmers with little or no experience in the field of parallel
processing but also for experts.
Within this project we target mostly C and C++ (Fortran is an option as well)
codes coming from industry and SMEs that are computationally and data
We will use compiler technology and performance analysis combined with dynamic
methods to semi-automatically parallelize and tune applications for a variety
of computers based on multicore processors and clusters of them.

Expertises demandées:
We are looking for partners from industry or SMEs that can provide an
application written in C, C++ or Fortran as a pilot for this project. The
application can be sequential or preferably already parallel (such as MPI or
Openmp) which will be subject to an improved parallelisation or
optimisation by
the developed environment.

Partenaires recherchés:
Industry or SME partner

BAE SYSTEMS, une entreprise anglaise recherche des partenaires pour un:
Projet: STREP

Dans le défi: 5.1 Personal Health Systems
Nom provisoire du projet: Diagnosis and Health Monitoring
Date de clôture: 01/04/2009

Advanced healthcare diagnostics using probabilistic reasoning

Présentation de la proposition:
Probabilistic expert systems utilising Bayesian methods are capable of
providing the best diagnostic advice from evidence in the form of symptoms.
However, in order to make these systems computationally tractable some
simplifying assumptions are often made; such as there is only one underlying
disease that could be causing the symptoms; or that only a certain number of
positive symptoms can be considered at any one time. Modified Bayesian methods
such as Binary Node 2 layer Bayesian networks with noisy-or conditional
probabilities BN2NO seek to overcome the limitations but are only partially
successful. This project seeks solutions that can overcome all the
drawbacks of
the current generation of diagnostic software.

Expertises demandées:
1. Teaching Hospital or health centre - provider of representative data to
the developed systems. This should be in the area of a) Cardiovascular
b) Diabetes c) Renal failure d) Liver failure: the choice is still open.
2. Medical equipment supplier - a company to exploit the technology with
experience in the area of wearable, portable or implantable devices.
3. Universities - computer science or maths departments interested in
the algorithms

Partenaires recherchés:
1. Teaching Hospital or health centre.
2. Medical equipment supplier.
3. Universities.

Projet: STREP

Dans le défi: 7.3 ICT for Governance and Policy Modelling
Nom provisoire du projet: PreMaGo - Web-based Prediction Markets for
Participatory Governance
Date de clôture: 01/04/2009

PreMaGo will develop and evaluate an new prediction market model for
funding decisions by aggregating information from a possibly large
community of
stakeholders. The concept will be realised as an open, web-based collaboration
platform with facilities for suggesting and discussing prospective funding
projects and for voting about which of these funding projects will benefit
their stakeholders most. The implementation of the concept will be based on
semantic and social networking technologies as well as data mining and
reputation/trust building measures. The PreMaGo concept and platform will be
evaluated in 2-3 domains such as funding projects of regional community
administrations and goverments, research funding agencies, charitable
foundations or funding of open-source software development.

Présentation de la proposition:
The PreMaGo concept is based on the following principles:
 Transparency. Funding decisions are currently affected by various
flow barriers. Increasing transparency and openness with regard to project
ideas, evaluations, reviews, progress reports and interfaces between project
results will help to remove information flow barriers and ultimately make
publicly funded projects more efficient.
 Community intelligence. Funding decisions as well as success assessment
be primarily based on the judgment of a large stakeholder community.
 Big impacts with small steps. Conceiving and realising bright ideas does
not require hundred man-year developments or multi-million amounts of funding.
Their realisation can be achieved by bringing together innovative ideas with
clearly defined features and requirements based on direct stakeholder
Technologically the PreMaGo platform will employ innovative next generation
and Web technologies, such as:
 Social networking communication models for prompt and efficient information
 Semantic technologies for structuring, classifying, annotation, interlinking
and searching possibly large proposal/project idea spaces,
 Data mining and decision support techniques, which empower funding
organizations to timely identify stakeholder needs and promising project

 Reputation and trust building measures, which allow participants of the
platform to assess the reliability, track record, competences etc. of other
In the PreMaGo project, we will (1) develop a transparent, fair and efficient
prediction market model for aggregating information with regard to funding
decisions, (2) implementing a open, web-based collaboration platform for
organising this market and the participatory funding process based on next
generation ICT and Web technologies, (3) evaluating the concept and platform
with selected funding organizations in different domains.
First preliminary steps towards this goal were already made with Cofundos ? a
market for open-source software R&D (available at http://Cofundos.org) and the
ParticipatoryResearch initiative (online at http://wiki.cofundos.org).

Expertises demandées:
Profile1: Social sciences, economy or political sciences in particular with
expertise in prediction markets, governance of science, participatory

Profile2: Experience with funding projects e.g. in the local administration,
charitable foundations or research funding domains

Partenaires recherchés:
Profile1: Research organizations in particular social sciences

Profile2: Funding organizations, e.g. foundations, research funding agencies,
local community administrations or governments
