12–14 September 2017 The 2nd International RILEM/COST Conference on Early Age Cracking and Serviceability in Cement-based Materials and Structures

Brussels, Belgium

We are honored to organize and host the annual scientific meeting of the COST Action TU1404 ( in 2017 in conjonction with the 2nd International RILEM/COST Conference on Early Age Cracking and Serviceability in Cement-based Materials and Structures EAC-02 from 12 to 14 September, 2017, in Brussels, Belgium. This International RILEM Conference follows the RILEM International Conference on Early Age Cracking in Cementitious Systems (EAC’01) organized in March, 2001, in Haifa, Israel, by Prof. Konstantin Kovler. The EAC’01 conference was dedicated to early age cracking in cementitious systems, one of the most prominent topics tackled by COST Action TU1404.

14–16 June 2017 7th International Workshop on Folk Music Analysis

Malaga, Spain

The submission system for the 7th International Workshop on Folk Music Analysis is now OPEN!

The 7th International Workshop on Folk Music Analysis will take place in Malaga, Spain, 14-16 June 2017. This International Workshop brings together researchers from the field of ethnomusicology and the field of computational and analytical musicology ( )

FMA 2017 will provide the attendants with a fantastic forum to share research, thoughts, needs and discoveries between ethno-musicologists, musicians, librarians, students, museum curators, computer science experts and music information retrieval researchers to foster the creation of cross-disciplinary collaborative networks and the development of new interdisciplinary tools, methods techniques and ideas to promote the enrichment of music, specially folk music and the
preservation and dissemination of World's musical cultural heritage.

FMA 2017 will feature a great Program that includes:
* Tutorials. (Tutorial proposal deadline February 15, 2017)

* Oral and poster presentation of research papers. (Paper submission deadline March 13, 2017)

* Demo session. (Late breaking and demos submission deadline April 24, 2017)

* Keynote speakers.

Submissions for all categories are welcome. All research papers (both abstracts and full papers) will be peer-reviewed.

The conference venue will be the Green Ray Building at Universidad de Malaga.

FMA 2017 will not only offer interesting papers, posters, tutorials, etc., it also aims at giving the participants an unforgettable stay. The social program will provide participants with an opportunity to relax after meetings, to experience Malaga, and to network with other FMA 2017 participants.

9–14 July 2017 The 20th World Congress of the International Federation of Automatic Control

Toulouse, France

The IFAC World Congress is the forum of excellence for the exploration of the frontiers in control science and technology. This Congress is attended by a worldwide audience of scientists and engineers from academia and industry. It offers the most up-to-date and complete view of control and automation techniques, with the widest coverage of application fields.

10–14 July 2017 1st Summer School on Complex Fluid-Flows in Microfluidics

Porto, Portugal

The course schedule will be updated regularly and at this moment i can be subject of changes. It will be a 5-days course and each day will be fully dedicated to a single unit (6h/day):

1.- Complex Fluids and Rheology in Microfluidics (Monday - 6h)
2.- Fabrication techniques in Microfluidics (Tuesday - 6h)
3.- Fluid-Flow characterization in Microfluidics (Wednesday - 6h)
4.- Numerical Simulations in Microfluidics (Thursday - 6h)
5.- Optimization in Microfluidics (Friday - 6h)

The afternoon sessions will be a sort of hands-on/clinic workshop, that is, selected participants will expose in a 10-minutes presentation their practical problems related to the unit of the day, their problems will be analyzed and they will receive feedback from the professors and the rest of the participants. The submission of an abstract explaining the problem to be presented is therefore encouraged at the moment of the registration.

7–10 August 2017 International Sorption Heat Pump Conference--ISHPC 2017

Tokyo, Japan

A Series of this conference was initiated as Absorption Working Fluid Workshop at Stockholm, Sweden in 1980. It was the first international forum on absorption heat pump/refrigeration technologies, and continued as International Sorption Heat Pump Conference every two to three years by expanding its scope to comparable technologies, such as adsorption heat pump/refrigerators, chemical heat pumps, desiccant air conditioning, sorption energy storage etc.

11–15 December 2017 HeteroNanoCarb 2017

Benasque (Aragon), Spain

Following the success of the first two editions organized in 2013 and 2015 (HeteroNanoCarb13, HeteroNanoCarb15), HeteroNanoCarb17 will provide a unique forum for researchers, scientists, and engineers from different countries worldwide who are actively involved in the research on issues to disseminate their latest research results and development achievements. In addition to the exciting scientific and technological themes, the conference offers a platform to promote and encourage interaction among researchers for collaboration. To allow researchers from various stages of their career to take advantage of this event, the technical program will consist of a combination of invited, contributed oral, and poster presentations.
