Mini-Workshop Call

Call for Papers



Fifth UK e-Science All Hands Meeting

The Fifth UK e-Science All Hands Meeting (AHM 2006) will be held from 18-21 st September 2006 at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham.

Proposals for mini-workshops are now invited. These are sessions focused on a particular topic that are organised by individuals to bring together a number of presenters in a panel or mini-symposium format. These sessions will be scheduled in parallel with other conference sessions, but with the expectation that individuals will not move between sessions.

A proposal to organise a mini-workshop should be submitted by email to the Chair of the AHM 2006 Programme Committee (see below), and include the following:

  • The title of the mini-workshop.
  • The name, affiliation, and contact details of the organiser.
  • The format of the mini-workshop, e.g., panel or mini-symposium.
  • The approximate duration of the mini-workshop. It is expected that workshops at AHM 2006 will last between 75 and 180 minutes.
  • An abstract of no more than one page giving the aims of the mini-workshop, the motivation for holding it, and the target audience.
  • A mini-workshop chair and a tentative list of speakers/participants should be identified.

Organisers of approved mini-workshops will be responsible for:

  • Liasing with the AHM 2006 Organising Committee to ensure their session is appropriately resourced.
  • Advertising their mini-workshop and soliciting contributions.
  • Refereeing contributions and recommending which should be accepted by the AHM 2006 Programme Committee. The PC will delegate to mini-workshop organisers responsibility for refereeing submissions in accordance with the conference guidelines. To ensure a uniform high quality of submitted papers the PC will retain overall control of the mini-workshop programme.

The deadline for submission of mini-workshop proposals is 20 th February 2006. Applicants will be notified of acceptance or rejection by 1 st March 2006. The workshops will then be publicised on the AHM website, and thereafter mini-workshops featuring contributed papers will follow the schedule for regular conference papers (deadline 1 st May 2006). Mini-workshop papers will appear in the conference proceedings.

Programme Committee:

Chair, Professor Paul Watson, Newcastle University ( paul.watson@ncl.ac.uk).

Deputy Chair, Professor Jie Xu, Leeds University (jxu@comp.leeds.ac.uk).
