Call For Papers: Sixth UK e-Science All Hands Meeting
The Sixth UK e-Science All Hands Meeting (AHM 2007) will be held from 10-13th September 2007 at the East Midlands Conference Centre in Nottingham.
The aim of the meeting is to provide a forum in which e-Science projects from all disciplines can be discussed, and where the results from projects can be demonstrated. The conference will therefore feature presentations by groups throughout the UK who are active in e-Science projects, in addition to poster sessions, mini-workshop sessions, project demonstrations, tutorials, and birds-of-a-feather sessions. The schedule will also include a number of invited Keynote speakers involved in leading Grid and e-Science activities.
There are several options for participation (please note that to reflect the increasing quality of the submissions we are asking for full papers to be submitted for review, rather than abstracts):
- Regular paper. Each paper can be up to 8 pages in length. Full papers (not abstracts) should be submitted. Papers not accepted as full papers can be reconsidered as poster submissions. The submission deadline is the 16th April 2007.
- Presentation in a mini-workshop. The mini-workshops are sessions organised by individuals to bring together a number of presenters for a particular theme. Details of the workshops, and individual calls for workshop papers will be posted on the AHM web-site in the second week of February.
- Poster Presentation. There will be a poster session where colleagues will have the opportunity to explain projects to the conference delegates. Each poster paper can be up to 8 pages in length and must be submitted for review by 16th April 2007.
- Birds-of-a-Feather/Tutorial. Up to five, two-hour sessions will be organised. Birds-of-a-Feather are sessions that do not have the normal session format; for example discussions, panels, tutorials on key aspects of e-Science, etc. If you wish to organise one of these then please submit a 2 page summary to the PC Chair describing the aims, schedule and intended audience by 16th April 2007.
A full review process will be managed by the AHM Programme Committee.
Details of the format required for the papers, and how to submit is available at http://www.allhands.org.uk/
There will be proceedings for the conference, which will be provided in CD format with an ISBN number. As in previous years we are aiming to have the best papers published in special issues of at least one journal. This year the Programme Committee will present a best paper award, and that paper will be presented in a plenary session. There will also be a Best Student Paper award, with 1st, 2nd and 3rd classifications. For a paper to qualify, it must have a student as the lead author, and the PC chair must be informed by e-mail of this once the paper has been submitted. This 1st placed paper will also be presented in a plenary session.
Chair, Professor Jie Xu, University of Leeds (firstname.lastname@example.org).
