Data Analytics and Management in Data Intensive Domains. XVIII International Conference, DAMDID/RCDL 2016, Ershovo, Moscow, Russia, October 11 -14, 2016, Revised Selected Papers
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 28th International Conference on Data Analytics and Management in Data Intensive Domains, DAMDID/RCDL 2016, held in Ershovo, Moscow, Russia, in October 2016.
The 16 revised full papers presented together with one invited talk and two keynote papers were carefully reviewed and selected from 57 submissions. The papers are organized in topical sections on semantic modeling in data intensive domains; knowledge and learning management; text mining; data infrastructures in astrophysics; data analysis; research infrastructures; position paper.
One of the most sensitive radio telescopes at the frequency of 110 MHz is a Big Scanning Antenna (BSA) in Pushchino Radio Astronomy Observatory of Lebedev Physical Institute (PRAO LPI, Moscow region, Russia). Since 2012 in the BSA the continuous survey observation was started in multibeam mode in the frequency band of 109–112 MHz. Now 96 beams covering from −8 and up to +42° in declination are used. The number of frequency bands are 6 with a time resolution of 0.1 s and 32 bands with the time resolution of 0.0125 s. In a fast mode (32 bands, 0.0125 s) daily data flow is 87.5 GB (32 TB per year). The data provide a great opportunity for both short-term and long-term monitoring of the various radio sources. The sources are fast radio transients of different nature, such as fast radio bursts (FRB), possible counterparts of gamma-ray bursts (GRB), and sources of gravitational waves, the Earth’s ionosphere, interplanetary and interstellar plasma. Based on the BSA observations the database is constructed. We discuss data base prop- erties, the methods of transient search and allocation in database. Using this database we were able to detect 83096 individual transient events in the period of July 2012 – October 2013, which may correspond to pulsars, scintillating sources and fast radio transients. We also present first results and statistics of transients classification. In particular we report parameters of two candidates in new RRAT pulsars.
The analysis of the large infrastructure projects of information support of specialists realized in the world in the field of materials science is carried out (MGI, MDF, NoMaD, etc.). The brief summary of the Russian information resources in the field of inorganic chemistry and materials science is given. The project of infrastructure for providing the Russian specialists with data in this area is proposed.
