Social Computing in Education
Chinese University of Hong-Kong –
The Web has changed the landscape of how humans interact socially. With the advent of Web 2.0, Social Computing has become a new paradigm in ways we communicate, teach, learn, and educate. In this talk, I will first introduce Social Computing and its various platforms such as blogs, wikis, mashups, social bookmarks, etc. and how they can be used in the education environment for teaching and learning. I will highlight other interesting issues such as security, trust, etc. in using these technologies for learning. Lastly, we examine some current challenges and potential future promises of Social Computing in education.
Dr. Irwin King is currently with the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He received the BSc degree in Engineering and Applied Science from California Institute of Technology and his MSc and PhD degree in Computer Science from the University of Southern California.
Dr. King research interests include machine learning, web intelligence and social computing, and multimedia processing. In these research areas, Dr. King has published over 150 refereed journal and conference manuscripts. In addition, he has contributed over 20 book chapters and edited volumes.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
