11th IEEE/ACM CLUSTER, CLOUD AND GRID (CCGRID) 2011
Newport Beach, California, USA
May 23-26, 2011
CALL FOR WORKSHOPS
The IEEE CCGrid Organizing Committee invites workshop proposals for
CCGrid 2011. Workshop proposals are invited on specific aspects of
Grid, Cloud and Cluster Computing, particularly relating to the
subject areas indicated by the topics below. We encourage workshops
which will discuss fundamental research issues driven by academic
interests or more applied industrial or commercial concerns. The
format of the workshop will be determined by the organizers.
Workshops can vary in length from a half day to a full day. Having
more than one co-organizer for a workshop is strongly advised.
Workshop proceedings will be published as part of the CCGrid11
proceedings. So, it is very important that high quality workshops
are accepted, and that workshop chairs observe strict quality
strandards in the selection of papers for their events. Workshop
attendees are required to register for the main conference.
IMPORTANT DATES AND PROPOSAL SUBMISSION:
Workshop proposals and any enquiries should be sent by e-mail to the
workshop chair mentioned below. Proposals should be submitted in PDF
format (printable on A4 paper).
Workshop Proposals Due: October 10, 2010
Notification: October 20, 2010
URL for Workshop Website Due: October 30, 2010
Workshop: May 2010
Proposals for workshops should be no more than 2 pages in length.
They should contain the following information:
o Title and brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the
goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.
o A brief description of why and to whom the workshop is of interest.
o A list of related workshops or similar events held in the last 3 years,
or to be held in 2010.
o The names and contact information (web page, email address) of the
proposed organizing committee. This committee should consist of two or
three people knowledgeable about the technical issues to be addressed,
preferably not members of the same institution. A description of the
qualifications of the proposed organizing committee with respect to
organizing this workshop (e.g., papers published in the proposed topic
area, previous workshop organization, other relevant information).
Each workshop organizing committee will be responsible for the following:
o Producing a web page and a "Call for Papers/Participation" for
their workshop. The URL should be sent to the workshop chair.
o The call must make it clear that the workshop is open to all members
of the Grid and Cluster Computing community. It should mentions that
at least one author of each accepted submission must attend the workshop
and that all workshop participants must pay the CCGrid 2011
conference fee (and a workshop fee if applicable).
o Finally, it should also clearly describe the process by which the
Organizing Committee will select the participants.
o Ensure that all workshop papers are a maximum of 6 pages in length (in IEEE
format). It is the responsibility of the workshop organizers to ensure
that this page limit has been adhered to.
o Additional pages may be purchased (in some circumstances) subject to
approval of the proceedings chair. Provide a brief description of the
workshop for the conference web page and program.
o Selecting the participants and the format of the workshop.
The publication of proceedings will be by the IEEE in the same volume as
the main conference. The acceptance notification (by workshop chairs)
therefore should be the same as "conference paper acceptance"
notification (i.e. the dates should be the same).
All other details can be up to workshop organisers to set. Advertising
the workshop beyond the conference web page. Assistance in
producing a camera-ready version of the workshop proceedings.
Important matter: The CCGrid 2011 Organizing Committee may decide, if the
workshop is too small (i.e. does not attract enough submissions) to merge
this with another. So we encourage workshop organisers to attract a large
community. In extreme situations we may also cancel workshops if there are
not enough submissions.
Workshop organizers must ensure that suitable quality measures have been
taken to ensure that the accepted papers are of high quality. All papers
must be reviewed by an International Programme Committee (with a minimum of
3 reviews per paper). The organizers should also try to observe an acceptance
rate of around 45% (but not more than 50% of the submitted papers).
The CCGrid 2011 Organizing Committee will be responsible for the following:
o Providing a link to a workshop's local page.
o Providing logistics support and a meeting place for the workshop.
o In conjunction with the organizers, determining the workshop date and time.
o Providing copies of the workshop proceedings to attendees.
