Call for Workshop Proposals
Call for Proposals for Mini Workshops AHM 2007
The Sixth UK e-Science All Hands Meeting (AHM 2007) will be held from 10th-13th September 2007 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 2007 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 2007 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:
- Liaising with the AHM 2007 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 2007 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 22nd January 2007. Applicants will be notified of acceptance or rejection by 1st February 2007. 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 16th April 2007).
Mini-workshop papers will appear in the conference proceedings.
