Call for Papers
OMII-UK was formed in January 2006 as a partnership between the existing
OMII activity at the University of Southampton, and software activities
at the University of Manchester within the myGrid project and the
OGSA-DAI project at the National e Science Centre and EPCC. OMII-UK aims
to provide software and support to enable a sustained future for the UK
e-Science community and its international collaborators – www.omii.ac.uk .
The OMII-UK collaboration delivers software (e-infrastructure services
and tools) that enables researchers to start using similarly enabled
remote data and compute resources to support their work. These
components can be downloaded individually directly from the development
websites, our own repository, or as a packaged and integrated release.
It is our vision that these components will provide working solutions to
the community rather than toolkits that need further integration effort.
Following on from last year’s successful workshop at AHM2006
(www.omii.ac.uk/wiki/STAFFAHM2006Workshop) a second workshop at AHM2007
will bring together both the OMII-UK user and developer communities. We
are seeking papers and presentations relating to:
- the use of OMII-UK software to support applied science communities
- the development of software to support end-user communities using
OMII-UK software as a base
- the end-user functionality being developed within the OMII-UK
commissioned software programme
To ensure a uniformly high quality of presentations, all mini-workshop
papers will be subjected to the same reviewing procedure as regular AHM
papers. Papers should be submitted through the regular online submission
system at http://www.allhands.org.uk and marked for consideration of the
All mini-workshop papers will be subject to the same reviewing procedure
as regular AHM submissions. During submission you can specify that you
wish it to be considered for the OMII-UK workshop. High quality workshop
papers that are judged to be unsuitable for the workshop to which they
are submitted will automatically be considered as regular papers.
To submit abstracts to this mini-workshop please go to the submissions
page at the AHM website
(http://www.allhands.org.uk/news/paper_submissions.cfm), which includes
