BreSci - XII Brazilian e-Science Workshop
Satellite Event of the XXXVIII Congress of the Brazilian Computer Society
Natal-RN, Brazil, July 22-26, 2018

In the last decades, there has been a revolution in the way science and engineering have been conducted by using information and communication technologies (ICTs) in an intensive way. This new way of performing science, called e-Science, plays a fundamental role in the methodology of work adopted by many research groups around the world. Aiming to collaborate with e-Science efforts, proposing a forum for the discussion of relevant topics in this area of study, the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) will hold, on July 22-26, 2018, the 12th edition of the Brazilian e-Science Workshop (XII BreSci). The event is part of the activities of the XXXVIII Brazilian Computer Society Congress (CSBC) and will be based at the Natal Convention Center, in the city of Natal, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil.

- Deadline for papers submission: April 2nd until 12:00 p.m. (BRT), 2018
- Preliminary acceptance notice with suggestion of corrections: April 27, 2018
- Deadline for submission of the final version: May 4th, 2018
- XII BreSci: 23 and 24 July 2018


The activities in the workshop include the presentation of full papers, work in progress, abstracts, as well as invited talks distributed over two days within CSBC programming. Topics of interest in BreSci XII include (but are not limited to) those listed below:

Both the main and application tracks will accept submissions of complete papers (up to eight pages) and short papers (up to four pages), written in English or Portuguese. Papers should be formatted according to the SBC template (

All submissions will be reviewed according to the following criteria: suitability for workshop scope, relevance, technical quality, originality and clarity. Papers describing preliminary and ongoing work may also be submitted. Results are desirable (especially in full papers), but not required. Papers will be reviewed in pairs, and the selected papers will be published in the proceedings of the event and should be presented in technical sessions during the workshop.

Submissions should be made via the Brazilian Computer Society submission system (JEMS):
