PhD Positions in Advanced Navigation and Operational Autonomy for Aerial Robotics, University of Nevada

The recently established “AgilE RobotIcs & Autonomy Lab” (AERIAL) at the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR) is opening PhD positions in the field of advanced navigational and operational autonomy for aerial robotics. The
main focus of the envisaged research efforts will be related with leveraging the currently achieved autonomy levels towards enabling what we call autonomous aerial service robotic co-workers, a new class of robots that simultaneously perceive their environment, decide their actions, collaborate with other robots, plan and actuate themselves so that useful work tasks take place for the benefit of our societies.

PostDoc and Ph.D. Positions at L3S Research Center, Germany

The L3S Research Center, Hannover, Germany, invites applications for

one PostDoc and one Ph.D. research position

in the area of Temporal Retrieval, Exploration and Analytics in Web Archives, in the context of my ERC Advanced Grant ALEXANDRIA,

Within ALEXANDRIA, we will significantly advance semantic and time-based indexing for Web archives using human-compiled knowledge available on the Web, to efficiently index, retrieve and explore information about entities and events from the past. In doing so, we will focus on the concurrent evolution of this knowledge and the Web content to be indexed, and take into account diversity and incompleteness of this knowledge. We will further investigate mixed crowd- and machine-based Web analytics to support long-running and collaborative retrieval and analysis processes on Web archives.

CALL FOR PAPERS The Fourth Global Forum of Critical Studies Asking Big Questions Again 23 - 24 October 2015, Lucca, Italy

Deadline for Paper Proposals: 20th of September 2015 

The Fourth Euroacademia Global Forum of Critical Studies aims to bring into an open floor the reflexive and questioning interaction among academics, intellectuals, practitioners and activists profoundly concerned with evaluative understandings of the world we’re living in. The focus of the forum is to initiate an arena where no question is misplaced and irrelevant as long as we acknowledge that evaluation, critical thinking and contestation are accessible trajectories to better understand our past, present and alternative scenarios for the future.
