SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:
Prospective authors are invited to submit their full paper
(about 5 to 7 pages - single space, font size of 10 to 12) to
Prof. H. R. Arabnia by Feb. 25, 2008 ([log in to unmask]). email
submissions in MS Doc or PDF formats are preferable. All reasonable
typesetting formats are acceptable (later, the authors of accepted
papers will be asked to follow a particular typesetting format
to prepare their papers for publication.)
The length of the Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to
7 (IEEE style) pages. Papers must not have been previously published
or currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The first page of
the draft paper should include: title of the paper, name, affiliation,
postal address, and email address of each author as well as the name
of the conference the paper is being submitted to (ie, GCA'08).
The first page should also identify the name of the Contact Author
and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the
content of the paper.
Each paper will be refereed by two experts in the field who are
independent of the conference program committee. The referees'
evaluations will then be reviewed by one member of the program
committee who will recommend a decision to the co-chairs of the track.
The track chairs will make the final decision. Lastly, the Camera-Ready
papers will be reviewed by one member of the program committee.
The list of co-sponsors of GCA'08 will soon be finalized which
will include research laboratories and centers affiliated with major
institutions. The reputation and caliber of the co-sponsors of the
2008 conference will be comparable to the 2007 offering of the
conference which included:
Academic Co-sponsors: Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)
Media Lab., MIT + Computational Biology and Functional Genomics Lab.,
Harvard University + Statistical Genomics and Computational Biology
Lab., Dept. of Statistics, Harvard University + Biomedical Cybernetics
Lab., Harvard University + Texas Advanced Computing Center, University
of Texas at Austin + Statistical and Computational Intelligence Lab.,
Purdue University + Center for Computational Biology and
Bioinformatics, Indiana University and Purdue University Indianapolis
(IUPUI) + University of Iowa's Medical Imaging HPC Lab. + BioMedical
Informatics and Bio-Imaging Lab. of Georgia Institute of Technology
and Emory University + Intelligent Data Exploration and Analysis Lab.,
University of Texas at Austin + Statistical Genetics Research Group
of Columbia University, New York + Institute for Informatics Problems
of the Russian Academy of Sciences + University of North Dakota
(Grand Forks, North Dakota).
Corporate Co-sponsors: Google, Intel, and Salford Systems.
Other Co-sponsors: Int'l Technology Inst. (ITI), GridToday, HPCwire,
HPC Software Inc., STEM Education Society, and Hodges' Health.
MEMBERS OF PROGRAM AND ORGANIZING COMMITTEE:
The program committee includes members of the chapters of World
Academy of Science (chapters: supercomputing; scientific computing;
AI; imaging science; databases; simulation; software engineering;
embedded systems; internet and web technologies; communications;
computer security; and bioinformatics.) The names of the members
of the program committee will soon be posted on the web site.
Those interested in joining the program committee should email
Prof. H. R. Arabnia ([log in to unmask]) the following information: Name,
affiliation and position, complete mailing address, email address,
tel/fax numbers, a short biography together with research interests.
For the list of the members of program committee of GCA'07, refer to:
Many members of the program committee include renowned leaders, scholars,
researchers, scientists and practitioners of the highest ranks; many
are directors of research laboratories, fellows of various societies,
heads/chairs of departments, deans and provosts.
