Call For Papers

IEEE e-Science 2011 Workshop on Interoperability in Scientific Computing
5th December 2011, Stockholm, Sweden.
Full papers due: Monday 25th July 2011 **EXTENDED DEADLINE**

The seventh IEEE e-Science conference, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee for Scalable Computing (TCSC), will be held in Stockholm, Sweden from 5th - 8th December 2011. The Workshop on Interoperability in Scientific Computing will be held on the morning of Monday 5th of December, and is co-located with the main conference.

Approaches to modelling take many forms. The mathematical, computational and encapsulated components of models can be diverse in terms of complexity and scale, as well as in published implementation (mathematics, source code, and executable files). Many of these systems are attempting to solve real-world problems in isolation. However the long-term scientific interest is in allowing greater access to models and their data, and to enable simulations to be combined in order to address ever more complex issues. Markup languages, metadata specifications, and ontologies for different scientific domains have emerged as pathways to greater interoperability. Domain specific modelling languages allow for a declarative development process to be achieved. Metadata specifications enable coupling while ontologies allow cross platform integration of data.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from across scientific disciplines whose computational models require interoperability. This may arise through interactions between different domains, systems being modelled, connecting model repositories, or coupling models themselves, for instance in multi-scale or hybrid simulations. The outcomes of this workshop will be to better understand the nature of multidisciplinary computational modelling and data handling. Moreover we hope to identify common abstractions and cross-cutting themes in future interoperability research applied to the broader domain of scientific computing.


We invite submissions for high-quality papers (up to 8 pages in length) within the context of scientific computing in any of the traditional sciences (physics, chemistry, biology), engineering, or scientific/mathematical modelling applied to the social sciences and humanities. Papers should address progress, results or positions in one or more of the following areas:

* Use of metadata standards for annotating scientific models and data
* Curating and publishing digital models and data to online repositories
* Meta-modelling and markup languages for model description
* Theoretical frameworks for combining disparate models, multi-scale models
* Using standardised data formats in computational models
* Domain-specific ontologies for the sciences

It is expected that the proceedings of the e-Science 2011 workshops will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA, and will be made available online through the IEEE Digital Library.


Authors are invited to submit papers with unpublished, original work of not more than 8 pages of double column text using single spaced 10 point size on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, as per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines.

Templates are available from here:

Authors should submit a PDF or PostScript (level 2) file that will print on a PostScript printer. Papers conforming to the above guidelines should be submitted through the EasyChair submission system here:

Note, papers should NOT be submitted to the main e-Science 2011 paper submission system, as they will not be directed to the workshop organisers.

It is requested that at least one author of each accepted paper attend the conference and workshop.


Full papers due: Monday 25th July 2011 **EXTENDED DEADLINE**
Notification of acceptance: 18th August 2011
Camera-ready: 16th September 2011
Workshop date: 5th December 2011
