2nd IEEE Workshop on Interoperability in Scientific Computing
====================================
***SUBMISSION OF PAPERS EXTENDED TO APRIL 7, 2014
http://www.im.uu.se/events/

In conjunction with IEEE COMPSAC July 22-24 2014, Vasteras, Sweden.

The 38th Annual International Computers, Software & Applications Conference,
sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society and the IEEE Cloud Computing Initiative, will
be held in Vasteras, Sweden from 21st - 25th July 2014. The 2014 Workshop on
Interoperability in Scientific Computing (WISC '14) will be 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 an increasing
trend in 'Big Data' science is in the long-term interest in allowing greater access to
and preservation of models and their data, and to enable simulations to be combined in
order to address ever more complex issues. Model-driven approaches, markup languages,
metadata specifications, and ontologies 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. These interactions requires the ability to interoperate, and is
characteristic of 'Big Data' applications that are becoming more prevalent, even in the
sciences. 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 crosscutting themes in future interoperability research applied
to the broader domain of scientific computing.

The first instance of this workshop (WISC '11) was successfully held as part of
the IEEE eScience conference in 2011 in Stockholm, Sweden, where all accepted papers
were published in the workshops proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society and
archived on IEEE eXplore. We look forward to your contributions and participation
in WISC '14.

CALL FOR PAPERS

We invite submissions for high-quality papers within the context of scientific computing in
any of the traditional sciences (physics, chemistry, biology), engineering, economics 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
* Model-driven approaches to model and data integration
* Applying standardised data formats in computational models and data
* Domain-specific ontologies for the sciences.

Proceedings of the IEEE COMPSAC workshops will be published by the IEEE Computer Society,
and will be made available online through IEEE eXplore. Selected papers from the
workshop will be invited to submit extended versions for consideration for a special
research topic on Interoperability in Scientific Computing and Health Informatics to be
published in Frontiers in Physiology in late 2014.

SUBMISSION PROCESS

Authors are invited to submit papers with unpublished, original work of not more
than 6 pages, as per the Paper Guidelines of the main IEEE COMPSAC conference (see
http://compsac.cs.iastate.edu/mainconference.php for details). Please follow the IEEE
Computer Society Press Proceedings Author Guidelines in preparing your paper. Each accepted
workshop paper is required to be registered at full rate by one of its authors.

Please submit via EasyChair (https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=compsac2014) and
take care to select the Workshop on Interoperability in Scientific Computing track.
