Microsoft's Build conference will be a 'digital' online-only event for 2020

Microsoft's Build conference will be a 'digital' online-only event for 2020Microsoft's big event for developers in Seattle is traditionally where it shows off a lot of things that also impact us as consumers using Windows, Office or its other products, but this year it will be an exclusively virtual one. The company revealed in a statement to The Verge that "…we will deliver our annual Microsoft Build event for developers as a digital event, in lieu of an in-person event. We look forward to bringing together our ecosystem of developers in this new virtual format to learn, connect and code together."

Yesterday, Washington governor Jay Inslee announced a ban on events with more than 250 people that will run at least until the end of March. While that's set to expire before the Build event in May, Microsoft is acting now to prepare people for a "virtual format" instead of waiting any longer to see if it's extended. Facebook F8 and Google I/O were scheduled to take place earlier in May, and both have already canceled any in-person component of those developer events.

Last year Microsoft showed off the new Linux kernel for Windows 10 and Minecraft AR, and this year we expect to hear a lot more about its support for developers creating apps to run on Windows 10x and dual-screen devices like the Surface Neo.

Shoptalk March Conference Canceled Due to Coronavirus Fears

Shoptalk is the latest conference to succumb to fears over the spread of the coronavirus.
Leaders of the annual retail and e-commerce event, set to be held later this month in Las Vegas, have decided to reschedule the conference to mid-September. Just this week, representatives of the conference had held firm that the four-day event would go on as planned, simply without attendees from certain countries, including China and Iran, where the COVID-19 virus, better known as the coronavirus, has been widespread.
“The guidance of various health and safety organizations and our commitment to ensuring the well-being of our community necessitated the shift,” an event spokeswoman said. “We considered input from many of our sponsors, attendees and speakers, as well as the impact of widespread corporate travel restrictions during March across the retail industry.”
The World Health Organization has yet to declare Coronavirus a global pandemic, but did declare it an emergency. The virus is a respiratory illness and is described by WHO as generally “mild” and only one in five of those affected are thought to be in need of hospital care, typically the elderly and those with underlying health conditions.

Movado Cancels Davos Watch Conference Over Coronavirus

The coronavirus has caused another cancellation: Movado’s Swiss watch conference in Davos.
The watch group has pulled the plug on its event, which had been planned for March 14 to 18, owing to growing concern over the coronavirus in Europe.
“When the virus was largely contained within China, we felt we could keep the Davos summit but scale it back to become a conference for our European and Middle-Eastern customers,” Movado chairman and chief executive officer Efraim Grinberg said in a statement. “Now with cases growing in Europe, we feel that we must act to protect the health and safety of our customers and employees and therefore have canceled the summit.”
This year was set to be Movado’s third annual stand-alone conference — a format the group launched in 2018 as an alternative to Baselworld. Each year the company hosts a keynote speaker, which in the past has included Tony Blair and Amal Clooney. Despite the lavish set-up, Movado estimates that its stand-alone conference costs the firm about 20 percent of what it once spent on the Baselworld fair.
Movado’s announcement follows a similar release Thursday by Baselworld’s competitor Watches & Wonders, which is also canceled due to the coronavirus.
Baselworld, however, appears to still

Reselling, Re-consuming: IFM Conference Highlights Strength of Secondhand Market

PARIS — “I love the idea that my thrifted worker’s pants may have previously belonged to someone named Gerard.”
This sentence was uttered by Emilie, one of the seven young fashion aficionados interviewed in “Radical Fashion Kids,” a 15-minute documentary produced by the Institut Français de la Mode, which was unveiled on Wednesday during the Fashion Reboot conference, a day of talks dealing with the fashion industry’s current challenges.
“Radical Fashion Kids” featured a range of Gen Zers, from 13-year-old Ondine, who stopped buying fast fashion after watching the documentary “The True Cost” to 19-year-old Peter, who doesn’t see the point of brick-and-mortar stores as he can scroll through resale platforms on his phone in bed. Their interviews drove home a key point: The secondhand market is stronger than ever.
According to IFM teacher Thomas Delattre, 40 percent of French consumers bought at least one secondhand item in 2019, up from 30 percent in 2018 and 15 percent in 2009. “This is true across all socio-professional categories and touches both men and woman equally,” he told the audience during a presentation named “Re-consuming: New Needs, New Strategies,” based on a study of French consumers led by the IFM.

Nutrition Conference for Feed Manufacturers: University of Nottingham, Volume 7

Nutrition Conference for Feed Manufacturers: University of Nottingham, Volume 7


Nutrition Conference for Feed Manufacturers: 7 is a collection of papers dealing with horse nutrition and ruminant nutrition. This collection of papers is divided in four parts. Part 1 deals with the evaluation of the dietary needs of ruminants, finding the need to replace their feeding systems by replacing the starch equivalent system with the metabolizable energy system. Feed and energy value calculation are likewise explained where metabolizable energy (ME) is shown to be easily calculated with reference to the Agricultural Research Council system and later analyses. Observations on the efficiency of utilization of metabolizable energy in meat and milk follow, as feeding not only involves the efficient use of energy from the feed but also of nutritional contents and composition of the feed. Practical application and calculation are then discussed to achieve best practices. In Parts 2 and 3, the evaluation of the dietary energy for pigs, poultry nutrition, food intake of practice broilers and laying fowl, and formulation problems are discussed. Part 4 discusses horse nutrition with detailed descriptions of the anatomy of the digestive tract, digestion and absorption of nutrients, and the horses’ protein requirement. Energy requirements for the maintenance, growth, and reproduction of the horse using calculations based on the National Research Council basal allowance is discussed. Students and professors of veterinary medicine, stable owners, horse feed manufacturers, horse enthusiasts and equestrians will find this volume helpful.

History of Computing in Education: Ifip 18th World Computer Conigress Tc3 / Tc9 1st Conference on the History of Computing in Education 22 – 27 August 2004 Toulouse, France

History of Computing in Education: Ifip 18th World Computer Conigress Tc3 / Tc9 1st Conference on the History of Computing in Education 22 – 27 August 2004 Toulouse, France


This book looks at the history of computing in education from two points of view as a history of the impact of computing on education over the past forty years and as the use of the history of computing as a pedagogical tool in computing education. These two intertwined views look back at computer education and the ways in which organizations have attempted to use computers to enhance teaching and learning from elementary education through university studies in several countries. Topics include: considerations of cybernetics and informatics; government sponsored open source software for school education; learning with the artificial sciences; technology leading to historic changes; ICT in Catalan schools; streams in the history of computer education in Australia; growth of computing technology for education in India; computing and education in the UK; evolution of e-inclusion for the disabled; educational hypermedia computing; keyboard training; studies of educational computing projects; and using computing history to enhance teaching. History of Computing in Education is unique in its topic, the field having not been the subject of extensive study in the past. While there have been several books on the history of computing, a study of the impact of computing on education is only now receiving due attention. This book derives from contributions made at the History of Computing in Education conference at the IFIP 18th World Computer Congress, held in August 2004 in Toulouse, France and sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP). Teachers, students, researchers, authors, and education developers should find this work as a welcome addition to their educational repertoire. It will also provide new dimensions of breadth and depth in the evolution of computing in education.

Advances in Digital Forensics IX: 9th Ifip Wg 11.9 International Conference on Digital Forensics, Orlando, FL, USA, January 28-30, 2013, Revised Selec


Digital forensics deals with the acquisition, preservation, examination, analysis and presentation of electronic evidence. Networked computing, wireless communications and portable electronic devices have expanded the role of digital forensics beyond traditional computer crime investigations. Practically every crime now involves some aspect of digital evidence; digital forensics provides the techniques and tools to articulate this evidence. Digital forensics also has myriad intelligence applications. Furthermore, it has a vital role in information assurance – investigations of security breaches yield valuable information that can be used to design more secure systems. Advances in Digital Forensics IX describe original research results and innovative applications in the discipline of digital forensics. In addition, it highlights some of the major technical and legal issues related to digital evidence and electronic crime investigations. The areas of coverage include: Themes and Issues, Forensic Models, Forensic Techniques, File system Forensics, Network Forensics, Cloud Forensics, Forensic Tools, and Advanced Forensic Techniques. This book is the ninth volume in the annual series produced by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) Working Group 11.9 on Digital Forensics, an international community of scientists, engineers and practitioners dedicated to advancing the state of the art of research and practice in digital forensics. The book contains a selection of twenty-five edited papers from the Ninth Annual IFIP WG 11.9 International Conference on Digital Forensics, held in Orlando, Florida, USA in the winter of 2013.
