2- Postdoc positions at Inria in Lyon, France
(source : V. Acuna)

Two postdoc opportunities at Inria in Lyon, France

In the context of a FP7 KBBE European Project, BacHBerry (?BACterial
Hosts for production of Bioactive phenolics from bERRY fruits"), we are
seeking two postdoc candidates, each for one year, renewable for up
to two years.

The candidates will work in the BAMBOO team at the Inria-UCBL in
Lyon, France (http://team.inria.fr/bamboo/), in interaction with the
partners of BacHBerry, in particular the CSI team at the IDMEC-IST
in Lisbon, Portugal (http://www.idmec.ist.utl.pt/).

Both BAMBOO and CSI are methodological teams with an expertise
in computational and systems biology.

This project aims at tapping the potential of living organisms or systems
to develop or make natural chemical compounds that are believed to be
useful for medicine, agriculture, bioremediation, biodegradation, or etc.
Most often, the compound is already produced by the organism but in
small quantity, and one needs then to manipulate it in order for the
production to be increased. Other situations require transplanting part of
the chemical factory of an organism into another, in general a bacterium,
for better efficiency. In some cases, the transplant might better be split
among a community of different bacteria in interaction.

BacHBerry is more specifically interested in the generation of bacterial
platforms for sustainable bio-based production of phenolic compounds
found in berry fruits. Phenolics are recognised for their antioxydant
health-promoting and functional properties, and applied across
applications as diverse as aromas, colours, nutraceuticals, and medicines.

More specifically, we are looking for candidates with a PhD in one of
the following areas: computer science, mathematics, statistics, computational
biology, metabolic engineering, regulation, or related, with a strong taste
for inter-disciplinary research, and with very good interpersonal skills.

Ideally, the person will have a long experience with graph algorithms,
discrete combinatorics and/or optimisation techniques.

Unsual CVs are welcome. Knowledge of the portuguese language would
also be a plus :-)

Applications should include a motivation letter, a CV, and the address
of three references.

The applications should be sent to:
   Marie-France Sagot, marie-france.sagot at inria.fr
putting also in copy the partner in Lisbon:
   Susana Vinga, susanavinga at gmail.com
ideally before July 31, 2014.

� A comprehensive understanding of, and evidence of primary research
within, Variational Analysis and Generalised Monotonicity is
� Experience with formulation of asymmetric variational inequalities
as minimization problems, amenable to efficient solution, is desired.
� No knowledge of biology is expected, but a willingness to work as
part of an interdisciplinary team is essential.

� A fully funded position with a very competitive salary.

Informal enquiries can be made to:
Dr. Ronan M.T. Fleming,
Systems Biochemistry Group,
Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine.

The University is an equal opportunity employer.
Formal applications in English only via this link: http://emea3.mrted.ly/f15v
Applications should contain the following documents:
� A detailed curriculum vitae
� Cover letter mentioning the reference number
� List of publications
� Description of past research experience and how future interests
complement the proposed mission
� Name and addresses of three referees

5- Workshop on Cloud Computing and Optimization
(source : D. Aussel)

Call for Papers


Cloud Computing is a technique for computing which is more and
more widely used for a lot of purposes.

It offers a new set of services and an easy way to benefit from
a huge capacity of computation. The management of Cloud Computing
also defines new  problems that may be solved by Optimization

This workshop aims at bringing together interested researchers
from Optimization and Cloud Computing/parallelism communities,
and to give them the opportunity to show how the integration
of techniques from Optimization can lead to interesting results
on large scale and complex problems of Cloud Computing; and how
Cloud Computing can be used for solving more efficiently some
Optimization problems.

Any paper presenting ideas, techniques and methods that may be
interesting for both communities are welcome. We explicitly
encourage the submission of new ideas and methods for integrating
Optimization and Cloud Computing techniques that have arisen from
real-world applications. We are also interested in prospective papers.

Submissions of extended abstracts are welcome.

Long papers (up to 15 pages excluding references), shorter papers
or position papers may also be submitted.

Submissions must be formatted in the Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS) style and send in PDF format by email to the
two organizers.

All submissions will be reviewed and those that are well-written
and make a worthwhile contribution to the topic of the workshop
will be accepted for publication in the workshop proceedings.
The proceedings will be available electronically at CP 2014.

Some papers may be selected for being part of a special issue
of a journal.

At least one author of each accepted paper must attend the workshop.
Please note that every workshop participant needs to be registered
for the workshop.

     Submission date: July 15th, 2014
     Notification of acceptance: August 15th, 2014
     Camera ready version: August 22nd, 2014
     Workshop day: September (TBD), 2014
