13th IEEE International Conference on eScience

Auckland, New Zealand – October 24–27

The organizers of the 13th IEEE International Conference on eScience call for proposals for workshops to be held with the main conference, which will be held from October 24-27 in Auckland, New Zealand.

The eScience conference has a long history of hosting a wide range of well-attended workshops broadly related to eScience. These 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 an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to have in-depth discussions on a particular topics of interest to the community, and work at an earlier stage than that presented in the main conference. Workshops may be focused on any eScience-related topic including, but not limited to, interdisciplinary research, advanced cyberinfrastructure, data science, and education.

Workshop proposals should be submitted by email (escience2017-workshops@nesi.org.nz) and include the following information:

  • Workshop name and acronym
  • Workshop description (including its focus and goals) [< 1 page]
  • Draft call for papers
  • Names and affiliations of the organizers and tentative composition of the program committee
  • Expected numbers of submissions and accepted papers
  • Expected workshop length (half day/full day)
  • If the workshop has been run in the past, please include: number of submissions, number of accepted papers, and attendee count for each workshop

Workshop organizers 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, organizing selected papers into sessions, and assigning session chairs. Proposals showing clear focus and objectives in areas of emerging or developing interest will be prioritized.

The proceedings of the workshops will be included in the eScience 2017 proceedings to be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA and made available online through the IEEE Digital Library. As such, workshop organizers must follow the publication timeline of the main conference. For each paper selected for publication, at least one of the authors must hold a full registration for eScience 2017, and must present the paper in person.
