ICCS 2013 Call For Workshops

Call for Workshop Proposals

Deadline: 15th October 2012

We invite proposals for workshops. Workshops are intended to provide a forum for the discussion of a specific topic from the field of Computational Science between an international group of researchers. Each workshop should have at least 8 paper presentations and preferably no more than 20. The workshop organiser will be responsible for advertising the workshop, reviewing and selecting the papers. Financial assistance for the workshop organiser will be limited to one fee waiver for the conference. Papers accepted for Workshops will be published in the ICCS 2013 Proceedings. After the Conference some papers presented at the Workshops will be considered for publication in appropriate journals as Special Issues with the Workshop organiser as the Guest Editor of the journal.

Typical topics for workshops would be:

• Bio Computing
• Bio Complexity
• Computational Brain Dynamics
• Medical Computing
• Social Computing
• Computational Finance
• Computational Economy
• Computational Geophysics
• Atmospheric and Oceanic Computational Science
• Agent-Based Simulation
• Scientific Visualization

The conference theme this year being “Computation at the Frontiers of Science,” workshops with an interdisciplinary focus that highlight the broader impact of computing in various scientific disciplines will be particularly welcomed.

Proposals to organise workshops should include the following information:

• Title of the workshop
• Name, affiliation, mailing address and e-mail address of the proposer(s).
• Names of at least three PC members for the workshops
• A description of the topic of the session (not exceeding 100 words) plus a short description on how the session will be advertised so as to ensure a sufficiently wide range of authors.
• A description of how the workshop will contribute to the field of Computational Science.
• A brief introduction of the proposer, explaining his/her qualifications.

The deadline for proposal submission is *October 15, 2012*.
Please submit your proposal through our conference engine.

Deadlines for workshop papers will in principle be the same as for main-track papers (see www.iccs-meeting.org/iccs2013)
The Workshop organiser will be required to use the ICCS paper submission engine and to review the papers on basis of the same criteria as those in the main track. The list of papers accepted for a workshop should be sent to the Workshops Chair before February 15, 2013

The final acceptance of a workshop will be based on the quality of these papers, the coherence of the workshop and degree to which a broad audience is addressed.
