CCGrid 2008: Call for Workshops
The IEEE CCGrid Organizing Committee invites workshop proposals for CCGrid'2008 to
be held in Lyon, France, in May 2008.
Workshop proposals are invited on specific aspects of
the Grid and Cluster Computing, particularly relating to the subject areas indicated by the
topics below. We encourage workshops which will discuss fundamental research
issues driven by academic interests or more applied industrial or commercial
concerns. The format of the workshop will be determined by the organizers.
Workshops can vary in length from a half day to a full day. Having more than
one co-organizer for a workshop is strongly advised.
Workshop proceedings will be published as part of the CCGrid08 proceedings. So,
it is very important that high quality workshops are accepted, and that
workshop chairs observe strict quality strandards in the selection of papers for their
Workshops attendees should register to the main conference.
Important Dates and Proposal Submission
Workshop proposals and any enquiries should be sent by e-mail to any one of the workshop
chairs mentioned below. Proposals should be submitted in PDF format (printable on A4 paper).
| Workshop Proposals Due: || September 10, 2007 |
| Notification: || September 20, 2007 |
| URL for Workshop Website Due: || October 1, 2007 |
| Workshop: || 18-22 May, 2008 |
Proposals for workshops should be no more than 2 pages in length. They should
contain the following information:
Title and brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.
A brief description of why and to whom the workshop is of interest.
A list of related workshops or similar events held in the last 3 years, or to be held in 2007.
The names and contact information (web page, email address) of the
proposed organizing committee. This committee should consist of two or three
people knowledgeable about the technical issues to be addressed, preferably not
members of the same institution.
A description of the qualifications of the proposed organizing committee with respect
to organizing this workshop (e.g., papers published in the proposed topic area, previous
workshop organization, other relevant information).
Each workshop organizing committee will be responsible for the following:
Producing a web page and a "Call for Papers/Participation" for their
workshop. The URL should be sent to the workshop chair. The call must make it
clear that the workshop is open to all members of the Grid and Cluster Computing community.
It should mentions that at least one author of each accepted submission
must attend the workshop and that all workshop participants must pay the
CCGrid 2008 workshop registration fee, as well as the conference fee. Finally, it
should also clearly describe the process by which the Organizing Committee will
select the participants.
Ensure that all workshop papers are a maximum of 6 pages in length (in IEEE format).
Provide a brief description of the workshop for the conference web page and program.
Selecting the participants and the format of the workshop.
The publication of proceedings will be by the IEEE alongside the conference proceedings (in many
cases this is in the same volume as the main conference). The acceptance notification (by workshop chairs)
therefore should be the same as "conference paper acceptance" notification (i.e. the dates should be the same).
All other details can be up to workshop organisers to set.
Advertising the workshop beyond the conference web page.
Producing a camera-ready version of the workshop proceedings.
Important matter: The CCGrid 2008 Organizing Committee may decide, based
on the submission score to cancel or merge workshops before the conference.
So we encourage workshop organisers to attract a large community.
The CCGrid 2008 Organizing Committee will be responsible for the following:
- Providing a link to a workshop's local page.
- Providing logistics support and a meeting place for the workshop.
- In conjunction with the organizers, determining the workshop date and time.
- Providing copies of the workshop proceedings to attendees.
