CCGrid 2012 — The 12th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Grid Computing
May 13-16, 2012, Ottawa, Canada – Delta Ottawa City Centre Hotel, 101 Lyon Street, Ottawa
Call for Workshops
Workshop proposals are invited for CCGrid 2012 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 2012 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.
Important Dates and Proposal Submission
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).
Proposals for workshops should be no more than 2 pages in length. They should contain the following information:
Each workshop organizing committee will be responsible for the following:
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: The CCGrid 2012 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.
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 2012 Organizing Committee will be responsible for the following:
