      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 


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