Call for Abstracts: Eleventh International Kawasaki Disease Symposium

Feb. 3-6, 2015 Honolulu, Hawaii

Abstract Submissions Close: September 22, 2014

This 3 ½ day conference includes lectures, discussions, and oral/poster presentations focusing on the latest advances in Kawasaki disease. Kawasaki disease is the major cause of acquired childhood heart disease in developed countries. Children who develop significant coronary artery aneurysms as a result of Kawasaki disease have a lifetime increased risk of myocardial ischemia, infarction, and sudden death. The study of Kawasaki disease and its treatment are likely to yield important answers to general questions in cardiovascular health and disease that apply equally to pediatric and adult populations.

The Eleventh International Kawasaki Disease Symposium seeks to address the influence of genetics on disease susceptibility and outcomes, the mechanisms of coronary artery damage following severe acute inflammation, the role of immune modulation and other novel therapies in preventing artery damage, the potential use of serum biomarkers for diagnosis and prognosis, the use of newer imaging techniques to assess abnormalities of the coronary arteries and myocardium, and new therapies regarding anticoagulation and vascular health. Current data regarding the worldwide epidemiology will be highlighted, as well as psychosocial issues, guidelines and nursing practice .

Since the historic first International Kawasaki Disease Symposium in 1984, the international symposium has been held every 3 years in Japan, the United States, or Taiwan, drawing attendees from all continents.

Who Should Attend -  The audience will consist of pediatric and adult cardiologists, pediatricians and pediatric subspecialists in immunology, infectious disease, and rheumatology;  cardiovascular surgeons; pathologists; basic scientists in genetics, molecular biology, microbiology, and cardiovascular pathophysiology; public health officials from county and state agencies and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention; epidemiologists; and nurses working in pediatric cardiology and public health who have an interest in Kawasaki disease.


Summarize prevailing hypotheses regarding KD etiology, and discuss emerging research supporting or contradicting these hypotheses.

Summarize current findings regarding diagnostic and prognostic biomarkers for KD, and their potential significance to clinical practice.

Summarize the most recent research and clinical findings regarding genetic susceptibility to KD and to KD coronary artery disease.

Call for Abstracts: Workshop on e-Science and Social Networks (eSoN 14)

Call for Abstracts: Workshop on e-Science and Social Networks (eSoN 14)

Workshop to be held with IEEE e-Science 2014 20 or 21 October 2014, Guarujá, Sao Paulo, Brazil

Important dates

Paper Submissions Due: June 27, 2014

Notification of Acceptance: July 18, 2014

Camera Ready Versions Due: August 4, 2014

Workshop: October 20 or 21, 2014

Social networking is profoundly changing the way that people communicate and interact on a daily basis. As e-Science is inherently collaborative, social networks can serve as a vital means for supporting information and resource sharing, aiding discovery of connected individuals, improving communication between globally dispersed individuals, and even measuring scientific impact. Consequently, e-Science systems are increasingly integrating social networking concepts to improve collaboration. For example researcher profiles and groups exist in publication networks, such as Google scholar and Mendeley, and e-Science infrastructures, such as MyExperiment, NanoHUB and GlobusOnline all utilize social networking principles to enhance scientific collaboration. In addition to incorporating explicit social networks, e-Science infrastructures can also leverage implicit social networks extracted from relationships expressed in collaborative activities (e.g. publication and grant authorship or citation networks).

This workshop aims to bring together researchers from a diverse range of areas to establish a new community focused on the application of social networking to analyze and improve scientific collaboration. There are two complementary areas of focus for this workshop 1) how to efficiently share infrastructure and software resources, such as data and tools through social networks, and 2) how to analyze and enhance collaboration in e-Science through both implicit and explicit social networks, for example analyzing scientific impact through citation networks or improving collaboration by associating data and tools with networks of publications and researchers.
Scope of workshop

The topics of interest are, but not limited to, the use of social networks to analyze and improve collaborative e-Science:

The use of social networks and social networking concepts in e-Science and eResearch

Social network applications used for e-Science

Social network based resource sharing and collaboration architectures

New forms of collaborative computing and resource sharing

Crowdsourcing of scientific applications using social media

Social Cloud computing

Novel applications of digital relationships and trust

Definition of novel principles, models and methodologies for harnessing digital relationships

Extraction of implicit social networks from scientific activities (publication, citation and grants)

Analysis of collaborative scientific activity through social networks
