PLENARY SPEAKERS

X Biography:

Dr Encarnación Hidalgo-Tenorio is a senior lecturer in English linguistics at the University of Granada, Spain, where she has been teaching undergraduate and master courses since 1993. Although she loves English grammar lectures, her main research area is Critical Discourse Analysis, where she focuses on notions such as representation and power enactment as manifested mainly in public discourse. After the publication of her PhD thesis in 1996, she has written extensively on language and gender, and has also paid attention to the analysis of the way identity can be discursively construed. In her research, she has tried to develop or reconsider some very interesting principles mainly taken from Systemic Functional Grammar such as Transitivity, Modality or Appraisal Theory. In the last years, she has directed two research projects funded by the European Union and the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, dealing with how Otherness is shaped in social media, and with the detection and analysis of on-line terrorist discourse.

X Biography :

Dr Miguel-Angel Benitez-Castro is a lecturer in English at the School of Education of the University of Zaragoza (Teruel Campus). He successfully completed his PhD at the University of Granada back in December 2013, with a thesis on the formal, syntactic, semantic and textual features of English shell-noun phrases (e.g. fact, issue, problem) in a range of English text types. His main research interest lies in discourse analysis, inspired particularly by Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) and based on corpus-driven methodologies, which he has managed to apply to his general focus on the interface between lexical choice, discourse structure and evaluation. This general interest is reflected in his previous and ongoing research on shell-noun phrases(e.g. Benitez-Castro 2015), on the evaluation of social minorities in public discourse (e.g. Bartley & Benitez-Castro 2016) and, currently, along with Dr Hidalgo-Tenorio,on the refinement of SFL’s linguistic theory of evaluation (i.e. Appraisal Theory)on the basis of psychological emotion theories and of the analysis of a corpus of interviews with victims of abuse (e.g. Benitez-Castro & Hidalgo-Tenorio Forthcoming). He is now also a member of the research team of a 4-year project funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness, led by Dr Hidalgo-Tenorio and Dr Castro-Peña (University of Granada), on the detection and analysis of on-line terrorist discourse.

While many traditional robots are limited by a predefined set of alternatives for interactions and collaborations, one of the challenging goals in robotics and computer science is to build future robots and devices in physical or virtual forms that are multi-disciplinary in nature, connected to the world knowledge, and interact with humans to solve general as well as domain specific problems.

This workshop will gather people from industry and academia to create an opportunity to discuss how Semantic Computing can be effectively applied for smart interactions between humans and robots for problem solving, where Semantic Computing addresses the derivation, description, generation, integration, and use of the semantics (“meaning”, “context”, “intention”) of sources that may be static, dynamic, structured, semi-structured, unstructured, or a mixture of the above.

The international workshop on Future Robotic Computing and Machine Vision (FRCMV’17) aims at providing an international forum for academia and industry people aiming at understanding, modeling, designing or applying innovative solutions for all aspects involving Machine Vision and Future Robotic Computing

The innovative technologies developed over the last five years start to develop a picture of what smart cities will look like within the next decade.

Smart City is the product of accelerated development of the new generation information technology and knowledge-based economy, based on the network combination of the Internet, telecommunications network, broadcast network, wireless broadband network and other sensors networks where Internet of Things technology (IoT) as its core. The main features of a smart city include a high degree of information technology integration and a comprehensive application of information resources. The essential components of urban development for a smart city should include smart technology, smart industry, smart services, smart management and smart life.

The Internet of Things is about installing sensors (RFID, IR, GPS, laser scanners, etc.) for everything, and connecting them to the internet through specific protocols for information exchange and communications, in order to achieve intelligent recognition, location, tracking, monitoring and management. With the technical support from IoT, smart city need to have three features of being instrumented, interconnected and intelligent. Only then a Smart City can be formed by integrating all these intelligent features at its advanced stage of IOT development.

The explosive growth of Smart City and Internet of Things applications creates many scientific and engineering challenges that call for ingenious research efforts from both academia and industry, especially for the development of efficient, scalable, and reliable Smart City based on IoT. New protocols, architectures, and services are in dire needs to respond for these challenges.

The motivation of International Workshop on Smart City and Internet of Things (SCIoT’17) is to bring together scholars, professors, researchers, engineers and administrators resorting to the state-of-the-art technologies and ideas to significantly improve the field of Smart City based on IoT.

A parameter-based approach to the linguistic expression of emotion

Appraisal Theory is aimed to understand how social relations are negotiated through alignment, as linguistically realised by the axes of engagement, graduation and attitude. Of the three subsystems, the latter has attracted more attention so far. Attitude helps classify instances of emotion talk and emotional talk through the meaning domains of AFFECT, and JUDGEMENT and APPRECIATION, emotional talk entails the more indirect expression of emotion by attending to ethical and aesthetic values. As such, there is growing consensus about the desirability of treating JUDGEMENT and APPRECIATION as expressing individual opinion, with AFFECT, on the other hand, pertaining to self- and other-report emotion. Why happiness and satisfaction are separate categories when, psychologically, happiness may be both hedonic and eudaimonic; why antipathy is treated under unhappiness when, psychologically, it derives from anger and/or disgust This paper thus offers a more refined version of AFFECT, relying especially on neuroscience and cognitive dimensional appraisal theories of emotions.

Top Machine Learning MOOCs at the service of pedagogical innovation in the face of the challenges of massification At the university level in Africa.

Distance education and e-Learning has been subject of many research these last years. It seems that its adoption in higher education is faced today challenges in most developing countries resulting from global economy changes and rapid expansion of knowledge. Scripted courses that are posted online do not require as many resources and their production cost is relatively low. The same realization is possible for the South, where we find the same problems facing the growing number of students. Audiovisual digital contents also enable us to save time, going to an hybrid teaching or even flipped classroom in some cases. The idea is not to suppress the face-to-face courses but, instead, to place teachers at the center of this educational innovation. The online posting of free contents allows students to deepen knowledge autonomously and independently. We will present the low-cost economical model that has been used to support this initiative and the challenges we are facing. Some provided ideas on the critical success factors of this initiative will be described and discussed.

15:00 - 15:30 Prof. Abdelouahid Lyhyaoui
The impact of IT in the development of Tangier as a smart city

The changes taking places in Tangier can greatly benefit from the research carried out in the field of Information Technology (IT) which has so far been the biggest enabler of worldwide businesses by automating, accelerating and increasing business processes. IT brings pragmatic contributions to the empowerment of people to operate day to day effectively. This led to the emergence of many types of smart environments, such as smart homes, hotels, hospitals, and so on. Technologies are gaining tremendously in both the market and intellectual activities because of their approach centered on people leading directly or indirectly to the formation of the overall concept of smart cities to meet the various needs of their residents. The purpose of this presentation will therefore be to highlight the contribution of research results in the field of IT in improving the services the city of Tangier can offer as, a smart city in various sectors such as the environment, public transport and communication in Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN).

Arabic NLP In The Context of Intelligent Systems

Artificial Intelligence and Intelligent systems have become so popular that not only academia but also industry is extensively using them. Large and known companies such as Google, Facebook, Apple, etc. are investing a lot in this direction, buying start-ups and setting up dedicated research centers to promote and foster innovative ideas and technologies relying on the use of intelligent algorithms. In other words, in computer science today, Intelligence is the trend. For the specific case of the Arabic language, the recent rise in the number of Arabic Internet users has generated a rapid increase in Arabic digital content. Processing this volume of information and taking advantage of it requires the development of tools and programs that are dedicated to Arabic Natural Language Processing (ANLP).
