[Condor-users] Call for Workshops: IEEE/ACM CCGrid 2013

                      **** CALL FOR WORKSHOPS ****

                The 13th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on
                     Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing
                            (CCGrid 2013)

          Delft University of Technology, Delft, the Netherlands

                           May 13-16, 2013



Workshop proposals are invited for CCGrid 2013 on specific aspects of Grid, Cloud
and Cluster Computing, particularly relating to the subject areas indicated by the
topics below. We encourage workshops that 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
CCGrid 2013 proceedings. So, it is very important that high quality workshops are
accepted, and that workshop chairs observe strict quality standards, no more than
50% acceptance, in the selection of papers for their events. Workshop attendees are
required to register for the main conference.


Workshop proposals and any enquiries should be sent by e-mail to the workshop chairs.
Proposals should be submitted in PDF format (printable on A4 paper).

Workshop Proposals Due: October 20, 2012
Notification:           November 3, 2012
Workshops:              May 13-16 2013


Proposals for workshops should be between 2 to 5 pages in length. They should contain
the following information:
o Title and brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the goals and the
  technical issues that will be its focus.
o A brief abstract of the workshop (less than 200 words), intended for the CCGrid 2013
  web site.
o A brief description of why and to whom the workshop is of interest.
o A list of related workshops or similar events held in the last 3 years or to be held
  in 2012/2013.
o 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 brief 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
o Link to a preliminary web site of the workshop and a preliminary call for papers
o A list of committed and proposed PC members.


Each workshop organizing committee will be responsible for the following:
o Producing a web page and a "Call for Papers/Participation" for their workshop. The
  URL should be sent to the workshop co-chairs for CCGrid 2013.
o The call must make it clear that the workshop is open to all members of the
  Distributed Computing community. It should mention that at least one author of each
  accepted submission must attend the workshop and that all workshop participants must
  pay the conference fee.
o Finally, it should also clearly describe the process by which the Organizing
  Committee will select the participants.
o Ensure that all workshop papers are a maximum of 6 pages in length (in IEEE format).
  It is the responsibility of the workshop organizers to ensure that this page limit has
  been adhered to. Additional pages may be purchased (in some circumstances) subject to
  approval of the proceedings chair.
o Provide a brief description of the workshop for the conference web page and program.
o Selecting the participants and the format of the workshop.

The publication of proceedings will be by the IEEE in the same volume as the main
conference. Camera-ready due date for the accepted workshop papers will be the same as the
main conference. Therefore, workshop organizers should set the acceptance notification date
at least 2 weeks earlier than the camera-ready due date. All other details can be up to
workshop organizers to set, such as advertising the workshop beyond the conference web page
and assistance in producing a camera-ready version of the workshop proceedings.

Important Note:

Workshop organizers must ensure that suitable quality measures have been taken to ensure that
the accepted papers are of high quality. All papers must be reviewed by an International
Programme Committee (with a minimum of 3 reviews per paper).

The CCGrid 2013 Organizing Committee will be responsible for the following:
o Providing a link to a workshop's local page.
o Providing logistics support and a meeting place for the workshop.
o In conjunction with the organizers, determining the workshop date and time.
o Providing copies of the workshop proceedings to attendees.

Important Note:
The CCGrid 2013 Organizing Committee may decide, if the workshop is too small
(i.e. does not attract enough submissions) to merge it with another workshop. So we encourage
workshop organizers to attract a large community. In extreme situations we may also cancel
workshops if there are not enough submissions.

Conference Topics of Interest and Area Keywords:

Topics of interest to the conference include (but are not restricted to):
o Autonomic Grid Computing
o Content Distribution Networks
o Cloud Computing
o Cluster Computing
o Grid Computing
o Peer-2-Peer Computing
o Multi-Core Systems
