IEEE eScience 2018 calls for contributions


26 Feb 2018 Amsterdam - The 14th IEEE Conference on eScience will take place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from 29 October to 1 November 2018. The organizers are now inviting contributions for inclusion in the conference programme.

The 14th IEEE Conference on eScience brings together leading international researchers and research software engineers from all disciplines to present and discuss how digital technology impacts scientific practice. eScience promotes innovation in collaborative, computationally- or data-intensive research across all disciplines, throughout the research lifecycle.

The three-day conference programme consists of two single track days open for all eScience contributions. New this year is a multitrack day with focused sessions on Exascale Computing for High Energy Physics, Weather and Climate science in the digital era, Data Handling and Analytics for Health, Advances in eScience for the Humanities and Social Sciences, and Computer Science: Tools & Infrastructure.

On the day prior to the conference there will be workshops and tutorials.

The following calls are open:

  • Call for Papers
  • Call for Workshops & Tutorials
  • Call for Abstracts: Data Handling and Analytics for Health
  • Call for Abstracts: Exascale Computing for High Energy Physics
  • Call for Abstracts: Advances in eScience for the Humanities and Social Sciences
  • Call for Abstracts: Weather and Climate Science in the Digital Era

Key dates for contributions are the following:

  • Abstract submission deadline: 25 May 23:59 (AoE)
  • Full paper submission deadline: 1 June 23:59 (AoE)
  • Notification of acceptance: 15 August 2018
  • Camera-ready papers: 17 September 2018

The Chair & Supervisory Committee includes:

  • General chair: Wilco Hazeleger, Netherlands eScience Center, The Netherlands

Programme chairs:
