Jan. 26 — The ways scientific research is conducted and its results are taken up are undergoing radical changes as a result of the digital revolution. Researchers in all disciplines are increasingly adopting digital tools, techniques and practices in communities and projects that span multiple disciplines, laboratories, organizations, and national boundaries. The e-Science 2015 conference is designed to bring together leading international and interdisciplinary research communities, developers, and users of e-Science applications and enabling IT technologies. The conference aims to serve as a forum to present recent research advances in e-Science and highlight associated activities worldwide, providing an outlook of challenges and opportunities we will face in the future.
Call for Papers
e-Science 2015 will follow the previous e-Science conferences in encouraging submissions that explore advances in the application of technology in particular disciplines, covering both data-oriented and compute-oriented approaches, as well as extreme scale approaches and applications.
Major topics include, but are not limited to
- New ways to engage and collaborate with external stakeholders, e.g.:
- Scientists from other disciplines
- Stimulating startups and industrial collaboration
- Citizen scientists
- General public
- Addressing the challenge of anti-science
- Progress in thematic areas, e.g.:
- Arts, humanities (including Digital Humanities) and e-Social science
- Bioinformatics and e-Health
- Climate, Environmental & Earth Sciences
- Cyberinfrastructure to support e-Science, including novel hardware, software and services
- Data science, data management and digital repositories
- e-Science in the cloud
- Education and e-Science practice
- Physical Sciences and Engineering
- Sustainability and service management issues, e.g.:
- Quality of Service in collaborative environments
- Quality aspects of e-Science tools
- Security and trust (including migration of services from organisation to another)
- Long-term sustainability (20 – 50 year perspective)
- Abstract submission deadline: 8 March 2015
- Paper Submission Deadline: 15 March 2015
- Notification of Acceptance: 15 May 2015
- Camera Ready Papers due: 7 June 2015
- Conference Dates: 31 August – 04 September 2015
The conference proceedings are planned to be made available online through the IEEE Digital Library.
Authors are invited to submit papers with unpublished, original work of not more than 10 pages of double column text using single spaced 10 point size on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines. Templates are available from http://www.ieee.org/publications_standards/publications/authors/author_templates.html. Authors should submit a PDF file that will print on a postscript printer to https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ieeeescience2015.
It is a requirement that at least one author of each accepted paper attend the conference.
Call for Workshops
Multiple eScience workshops will be held on 3rd and 4th September 2015, co-located with the main 2015 eScience conference (see programme outline).
The workshops share the goal of bringing together leading international and interdisciplinary research communities, developers, and users of eScience applications and enabling IT technologies. Workshops play a crucial role in the conference by providing opportunity for researchers to present their work in a more focused way than the conference itself and to have in-depth discussions of particular topics of interest (described in more detail in the conference CfP) to the community.
We cordially invite you to submit workshop proposals on any e-Science related topic to the Workshop Chair via e-mail ([email protected]). The proposals should include:
- A description of the workshop, its focus, goals, and outcome
- A draft call for papers
- Names and affiliations of the organisers 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 organisers are responsible for establishing a program committee, paper submission system, collecting and evaluating submissions, notifying authors of acceptance or rejection in due time, ensuring a transparent and fair selection process, organising selected papers into sessions, and assigning session chairs. Proposals showing clear focus and objectives in areas of emerging or developing interest will be prioritised.
For each paper selected for publication, at least one of the authors must be registered for e-Science 2015 to present the paper in person. The proceedings of the e-Science 2015 workshops are expected to be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA and made available online through the IEEE Digital Library.
- Workshop submission deadline: 22th February 2015
- Notification of Acceptance: 3rd March 2015
- Camera Ready Papers due: 7 June 2015
- Workshop Dates: 3rd – 4th September 2015
Workshop proposals should be emailed to [email protected]
