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.

Energy Virtual Experience – EVEx 2020
The event “Energy Virtual Experience” ( EVEx 2020) will take place online, from October 26 to 30.
“Energy Virtual Experience” will provide 4 different interactive experiences: EVEx Talks, EVEx MasterClass, EVEx Academy, and EVEx Expo/Busines. These four experiences will be centered on “Ibero-American post-pandemic energy transition”.
Looking to stimulate interdisciplinary studies and innovative solutions in energy area, call for papers and projects will be launched soon.
INESC-ID researcher and IST Professor, Rui Castro, is member of the scientific committee of EVEx 2020.
