                            CALL FOR PAPERS
              eScience 2020: The 16th eScience Conference
                         September 8 – 11, 2020
                              Osaka, Japan

  eScience 2020 welcomes the international community of researchers
and software engineers from all disciplines to present and discuss
their scientific practices involving data science, artificial
intelligence and computing. Researchers from the humanities to
physics, engaged in collaborative data- or compute-intensive research,
are invited to attend. The objective of the eScience Conference is to
promote innovation in collaborative research across all disciplines,
throughout the research lifecycle.

  The digital world is transforming science and society,
simultaneously presenting new opportunities and challenges. One of
these challenges is keeping up-to-date with the latest developments in
computer science. Furthermore, some disciplines are well advanced in
exploiting computational technologies and data science, while others
are just scratching the surface. The aim of this conference is
cross-fertilization across research disciplines, to advance science
and humanities by fully exploiting the use of technology and
cyberinfrastructure. Disciplines include, but are not limited to: life
sciences, health research, arts, digital humanities and social
sciences, physics, chemistry, astronomy, climate, environmental
science, and earth science. Digital technologies include, but are not
limited to: machine learning, natural language processing, real time
data analysis, interoperability and linked data, multi-scale and multi
model simulations, high performance computing, workflow technologies,
reproducibility, visualization, open science and image processing.

  This year, the conference is divided into special tracks in addition
to the Main Track, namely:

  - Machine Learning for eScience
  - Software Tools & Infrastructure
  - eScience for location-based services

  This call for papers is for papers in all tracks of the conference,
all in IEEE format. Three types of papers will be accepted:

  - Research papers (Full papers 8-10 pages and Short papers 4 pages):
    focus on new research achievements, spanning core technologies and

  - Experience papers (Full papers 8-10 pages and Short papers 4
    pages): focus on practical outcomes through applying computer-,
    data- and information-science tools and techniques to novel

  - Posters (2 pages): focus on early stage results for presentation
    in a poster session, giving presenters a chance to showcase their
    latest results and innovations.

  To be eligible for an oral presentation, you must submit the
abstract of your full paper before Friday April 3, and your full paper
before Friday April 10, 2020. Papers will also be considered for a
poster presentation. All papers are single-blind peer reviewed and if
accepted published in the conference proceedings. It is a requirement
that at least one author of each accepted paper attends the

  On September 8, the day prior to the conference, there will be
workshops and tutorials. Please refer to the call for workshops and
call for tutorials separately.

  In addition, this year, eScience is co-located with the Global
Research Platform Workshop. The two conferences will offer shared
events such as shared evening reception and opportunities for mingling
during the breaks. Conference attendees will have the option to
register for one or both conferences, in full or in part. These two
audiences share interests, content, and culture, and we will announce
further details of our collaboration in 2020. This is an opportunity
to attend both events!
