Ian Foster --- Large and diverse data result in challenging data management problems that researchers and facilities are often ill-equipped to handle. I propose a new approach to these problems based on the outsourcing of research data management tasks to software-as-a-service providers. I argue that this approach can both achieve…

Paul Bogdan --- Cyber-physical systems (CPS) constitute a new generation of networked embedded systems that interweave computation, communication and control to facilitate our interaction with the physical world. They will stand at the foundation of novel smart healthcare systems, which monitor individual physiological process…

Eric Mjolsness --- Predictive modeling languages are aimed at describing approximately the way things are, or could be, and how processes work or could work. By contrast programming languages are aimed at specifying exactly how to do a computation. There is a useful overlap between these kinds of formal languages including ideas…

Vaclav Petricek --- Humans have a mixed record in choosing romantic partners. Are looks or brains more important for a happy marriage? Matchmaking then is an age-old concept that has been revolutionalized with the advent of Internet. Suddenly the pool of potential partners that one can plausibly consider has exploded and thanks to…
