Call for Workshops: Euro-Par 2015
21st International European Conference on Parallel and Distributed Computing
Vienna, Austria, 24-28 August 2015
Euro-Par is the prime European conference covering all aspects of parallel and distributed processing, ranging from theory to practice, from small to the largest parallel and distributed systems and infrastructures, from fundamental computational problems to full-fledged applications, from architecture, compiler, language and interface design and implementation, to tools, support infrastructures, and application performance aspects.
To provide a meeting point for researchers to discuss and exchange new ideas and hot topics related to parallel and distributed computing, Euro-Par 2015 will co-locate workshops with the main conference and invites proposals for the workshop program.
The workshops will be held on 24-25 August 2015, the two days before the main conference.
Workshop Proposal Guidelines
The proposals should include the following information:
- Workshop title and acronym, preference for length (half or full-day)
- Information on the organizers, including a short biography of each organizer (5-10 lines)
- A tentative program committee
- Motivation of the workshop:
- scientific objective,
- interest to the Euro-Par community
- positioning with respect to the currently existing Euro-Par workshops
- Description of the workshop:
- format (contributed papers, invited talks, panels, posters, etc.)
- organizational aspects
- Workshop background (previous editions)
- Link to international projects/initiatives
The decision about the acceptance/rejection of a workshop proposal will be made on the basis of the overall quality of the proposal and the degree to which it matches the scope of the conference. In the case that several workshop proposals have very similar objectives and scopes, a merge of overlapping workshops may be recommended. The topics covered by a workshop should not overlap with the main topics of the conference. Decisions will be made on a rolling basis. Proposals can already be sent starting from 1 December 2014, and the organizers may be notified before the notification deadline in case of a strong proposal.
Responsibility of Workshop Organizers
- Preparing the call for papers for the workshop and publicizing it
- Maintaining the workshop Web site
- Selecting the workshop program committee
- Selecting papers through a rigorous peer-review process using the provided EasyChair installation
- Delivering the final workshop program to the Euro-Par 2015 conference co-chairs in time
- Delivering the preliminary workshop proceedings in time before the conference
- Providing the Euro-Par Steering Committee with a Management Report, after the conference, with keys indicators such as: number of submitted and accepted papers, program committee and review process management
- Delivering the final workshop proceedings with a revised version of the papers in time after the conference in the required Springer LNCS format (12 pages max.) and writing an introductory preface to the workshop. Camera-ready papers will be published only if the management report has been delivered
- Registering for the conference
Workshop Proceedings and Paper Review
The workshop proceedings will be published in a separate LNCS workshop volume after the conference. The principal coordinator of each workshop will appear as an editor of the workshop volume. Registered workshop participants will receive an electronic copy of the volume by email. All authors of accepted papers will be requested to sign a Springer copyright form.
The Euro-Par organizers will provide an EasyChair setup for all Euro-Par 2015 workshops, and its use is mandatory to facilitate paper submissions, reviewing, and collecting the camera-ready versions. The workshop papers will not be published in the proceedings otherwise. Each workshop will be an independent track within the Workshops' EasyChair installation, but it will be fully manageable by the respective organizers.
