CANCELED – Introduction to Compact Data Structures: A Strategy for Big Data Processing
Universidad de la Coruña –
The need to deal with huge amounts of data (big data world) has motivated the development of new data structures able to represent data and indexes to access them in compact space. The key idea in this field is to store and process the data in its compressed form avoiding decompression, except to show the data to final users. The advantage of this strategy is that more data can be placed in memory avoiding time for disk access or for data transmission. That is, this strategy takes advantage of the different speeds of the different memory hierarchy levels. The talk motivates this research field and will present some basic tools. Some examples of basic compressed data structures for the representations of trees and graphs will be used to explain, at a conceptual level, how those data structures work. To understand the talk, only basic knowledge about data structures and algorithms programing is necessary.

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.
