GPC 2012 : The 7th International Conference on Grid and Pervasive Computing
Conference Series : Grid and Pervasive Computing
Call For Papers
GPC 2012 Call for Papers
Grid and Pervasive Computing covers research issues and challenges in the field of computer science and engineering in areas of grid and pervasive computing. Grid computing connects computer resources from multiple domains for solving computationally complex scientific, technical or business problems in a distributed fashion. Pervasive computing aims at creating computational devices and systems that will blend into environment to support everyday human activities via natural human computer interaction.
GPC 2012 aims to bring together researchers and practitioners from interested communities of grid computing and pervasive computing to explore ideas and solutions to challenges in the areas of grid and pervasive computing. Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers with the following topics, but not limited to
Cloud, cluster and grid computing
Mobile, peer-to-peer and pervasive computing
Sensor and Ad hoc networks
Mobile agents and networking
Middleware, resource management, and runtime environments
Programming models, tools and environments for distributed and pervasive computing
Grid and pervasive applications, including eScience and eBusiness applications
Creation and management of virtual enterprises and organizations
Grid and cloud computing economy and business models
Semantic web, semantic grid, metadata and ontologies related to pervasive and distributed computing
Distributed multimedia analysis and processing
Authors are invited to submit original contributions. Paper submissions shall be in English, should be complete, should not exceed 15 pages in length and should be in full conformance with LNCS paper style.
The GPC 2012 proceedings will be published by Springer as a volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. The publisher will arrange the indexing of the proceedings in all major indexing services.
Jan 15, 2012 Submission of papers, workshop and tutorial proposals
Feb 19, 2012 Notification to authors
Mar 4, 2012 Camera-ready papers due
May 11-13, 2012 The conference
Call for Workshops
Workshops on themes within the conference scope may be arranged to discuss matters of immediate technical interest as well as to foster action on longer-term technical objectives. The work reported in workshops can be still under development and the aim of presenting the work can be to trigger interaction on the topic between the authors presenting their work and the audience. All accepted workshop papers will be published jointly in the GPC 2012 Workshops post-proceedings by Springer as a separate volume in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. The publisher will arrange the indexing of the proceedings in all major indexing services. Publishing the workshop proceedings after the conference allows the workshop to act as another round of (informal) reviewing and quality improvement, as the camera-ready papers will be submitted after the conference. A workshop can include 1-4 sessions, allowing 5-20 presentations. Paper length is limited to 12 pages in LNCS format.
The workshop organizers are expected to select papers for the workshop using a peer review process that obeys the GPC 2012 conflict of interest policy (here). Moreover, the workshop organizers are expected to organize a workshop session at the GPC 2012 conference. All workshop participants (including workshop organizers and authors of the accepted papers) will pay the normal GPC2012 registration fee. The papers presented at the workshop session will be included in the GPC 2012 workshop post-proceedings. Finally, the workshop organizers are expected to deliver the camera-ready papers in the correct format by the post-proceedings deadline - more information can be found from here.
Workshop proposals should be submitted by e-mail to the Workshop Chairs:
Jan 29, 2012 Submission of workshop proposals (extended)
Feb 19, 2012 Notification to workshop organizers

Call for Tutorials
Tutorials should address subjects that fall within the scope of the conference and may be proposed as either half-or a full-day events. Proposals should include a title, an abstract, a description of the topic, a detailed outline of the presentation, a description of the presenter's lecturing expertise in general and with the proposed topic in particular, the proposed duration (half day or full day), the intended level of the tutorial (introductory, intermediate, or advanced), the recommended audience experience and background, and a statement of the reasons for attending. The providers of full-day tutorials will receive a complimentary conference registration (for one or two instructors) and a fee.
Proposals should be submitted by e-mail to the Tutorial Chairs:
Jan 15, 2012 Submission of tutorial proposals
Feb 19, 2012 Notification to tutorial organizers
