Call For Papers

WCEMP2008 - The 2008 Workshop on Advanced Computing for Critical
Systems and EMergency Preparedness and Response
July 12-18, Sao Paulo, Brazil

In conjunction with The
11th IEEE Intl Conf on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE2008)

Submission Deadline: Extended to March 10, 2008

With the increasing demand for total safety and security of critical systems,
decision making is crucial. In Collaborative Decision Making (CDM), information
sharing among multiple parties can lead to key decisions based on accurate
analysis of current event facts. When events lead to disaster, effective emergency
management systems can, in many cases, greatly minimize human and asset losses.
Advanced computing has increasingly enabled the creation of powerful and complex
decision making and emergency management systems.

The Workshop on Advanced Computing for Critical Systems and Emergency Preparedness
and Response will be a one-day workshop, held in conjunction with the 11th Intl
Conference on Computational Science and Engineering. The workshop will provide a
forum for researchers of different advanced computing areas to discuss how better
and more powerful tools and methodologies can be created to support decision making
and emergency management when applied to critical areas such as Air traffic control,
Avionics, Public transportation, Industrial plant and Process Control, Command and
Control, Surveillance, etc.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Autonomic computing
- Embedded and ubiquitous computing
- Distributed Simulations
- 3D Visualization
- Security, Privacy and Trust
- Grid, P2P and Web Services
- Advanced networking (wireless sensor networks, vehicular ad hoc networks, mobile
ad hoc networks, and WLANs, WPANs, WMANs and WWANs).

Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit research contributions representing original,
previously unpublished work,in PDF format with 5-10 keywords following the IEEE
CS format. Submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality,
significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. Final version of
accepted papers should be at most 6 pages and will be published by IEEE Computer
Society Press as CSE-08 workshop proceedings. At least one author of accepted
papers are requested to register and present their work at the conference, otherwise
their papers will be removed from the IEEE Digital Library after the conference.

Please submit your paper to the workshop through the submission page of CSE 2008 WS:
(in case the authors experience any problems with the submission process, please send
the paper directly to regina at

The IEEE instructions and template files for preparing papers are available at: (please consider the
two-column format).
