8th IEEE International Conference on eScience – CALL FOR WORKSHOPS

8th IEEE International Conference on eScience
October 8-12, 2012
Chicago, IL, USA

The 8th IEEE eScience conference (e-Science 2012), sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society’s Technical Committee for Scalable Computing (TCSC), will be held in Chicago Illinois from 8-12th October 2012. The eScience 2011 conference is designed to bring
together leading international and interdisciplinary research communities, developers, and users of eScience applications and enabling IT technologies.

Multiple e-Science 2012 Workshops will be held on Monday and Tuesday, 8th and 9th October, co-located with the main conference.

Workshops are an important part of the conference in providing opportunity for researchers to present their work in a more focused way than the conference itself and to have discussion of particular topics of interest to the community. We cordially invite you to submit workshop proposals on any eScience related topic to the Workshop Chair.

To help those interested know their purpose and scope, workshop proposals should include:

  • A description of the workshop, its focus, goals, and outcome
  • A draft call for papers
  • Names and affiliations of the organizers and tentative composition of the committees
  • Expected numbers of submissions and accepted papers
  • Prior history of this workshop, if any. Please include: number of submissions, number of accepted papers, and attendee count.

Workshop organizers are responsible for establishing a program committee, collecting and evaluating submissions, notifying authors of acceptance or rejection in due time, ensuring a transparent and fair selection process, organizing selected papers into sessions, and assigning session chairs. Proposals will be selected that show clear focus and objectives in areas of emerging or developing interest guaranteed to generate significant interest in the community.

Once accepted, the workshop should establish its own paper submission system. For each paper selected for publication, an author must be registered for eScience 2012. Each paper must be presented in person by at least one of the authors. It is expected that the proceedings of the eScience 2012 workshops will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA and will be made available online through the IEEE Digital Library.


Workshop proposals should be emailed to escience2012-workshops@fnal.gov


Workshop submissions due: 23rd January 2012
Notification of workshop acceptance: 6th February 2012

While it is up to the workshop organizers to work with the authors of any papers to be published from the workshop presenters, it should be noted that information about these will be needed by 27th August 2012 and final camera ready papers are needed by 17th
September 2012.
