The 15th IEEE International Conference on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE 2012) is seeking proposals for workshops to accompany the conference. We encourage members of the community to consider submitting proposals for workshops that bring together researchers and practitioners working on research topics of interest to the CSE community.
The purpose of these workshops is to offer researchers a good opportunity to present their work in a more focused way than the conference itself and to obtain feedback from an interested community.
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 on emerging topics guaranteed to
generate significant interest in the community will be selected.
Prospective workshop organizers are invited to submit proposals to
the workshop chairs, Massimo Cafaro
All proposals must provide the following information:
- Workshop name along with a brief 150 to 200-word abstract describing the event (suitable for the conference web site).
- If applicable, provide a description of past versions of the activity, including dates, organizers, submission and acceptance counts, attendance, and information with which conference the workshop was co-located.
- Brief rationale for the event and for co-locating with CSE.
- Names and affiliations of main organizers and, where relevant, tentative composition of the committees (as complete as possible).
- Event format, i.e., length of event (half-day or full-day), expected number of presented papers, invited talks, panels, demonstrations, number of days, etc.
- Expected number of submissions and participants.
- Draft Call For Papers (CFP), as complete as possible.
- Submission/reviewing deadlines (internal and external).
Proposals due: June 30, 2012
Acceptance notification: July 7, 2012
All workshops should maintain the same quality as the main conference. All the work papers will be included in the same conference proceedings. Once accepted, the workshop should establish own paper submission system. Each paper selected for inclusion in the proceedings must be registered for CSE 2012 at the same registration rates. Each paper must be presented in person by the author, or one of the authors. All the papers in the CSE 2012 workshops will be published in IEEE conference proceedings, in the same proceedings of CSE 2012, and will be made available to all conference registrants on site. All workshop papers will also be electronically available through IEEE Xplore Digital Database, and professionally indexed through INSPEC and EI Index. The accepted workshops can decide own submission deadlines but must follow the same camera-ready deadline and registration deadline as CSE 2012 main conference.
Please organize your workshop as early as possible to ensure your effort turn out to be fruitful. For further information on preparing a workshop proposal, please contact the Workshop Chairs.
