IV e-Science Workshop

(in conjunction with CSBC 2010)
Belo Horizonte, MG, Brazil
July 2010


Deadline for submissions (full papers and posters): March 8th, 2010
Notification of acceptance: April 19th, 2010
Camera ready due: May 17th, 2010


Over the past decades, we have seen a revolution in the way science and engineering has been conducted. Specially, computation became an established third brand of science alongside theory and experiment. Scientists now need to access and exploit computational resources and databases that are geographically distributed through the use of high speed networks. Those resources must be modeled and managed in a similar way we model software development and data through software engineering processes and database techniques. In order to attack the next generation of scientific problems, multidisciplinary and distributed teams of scientists need to collaborate to make progress on these new challenges.

Current advances in Software Engineering and Database research, including ontologies, scientific process/workflow modeling, semantic web services, software component management, grid computing, resource modeling, process and data provenance, data curation, among others can help to address these challenges. Several national and international projects around the world have been initiated to carry out research and innovation activities that will transform the goal of e-Science and Grid computing into a reality.

The IV e-Science workshop aims at bringing together recent developments in databases and software engineering towards a computerized infrastructure to accomplish science in the large, supporting the next generation of scientific research and experiments. The definition, execution and management of scientific experiments can no longer be developed in an ad-hoc manner. The topic of e-science or cyberinfrastructure is part of the “Grand Challenges in Computer Science Research in Brazil – 2006 – 2016” report from the Brazilian Computer Society.

This workshop serves as a forum to present, discuss and establish new partnership among scientists that participate in research and product/tool developments, and highlights related activities from the Brazilian and international community. The first three versions of the event were co-located with SBBD/SBES, and showed that there is an interesting audience on the theme. New projects are taking place, based on partnerships on the database and software engineering area. In this forth edition, we would like to extend the possible fields of collaborations to other areas of Computer Science that have much to contribute to e-Science.


The topics of interest of the workshop include (but are not limited to):

- e-Science and Grid applications
- e-Science workflow management
- Ontologies and databases for e-Science
- Data and process provenance
- Collaborative Science Models and Techniques
- Data Access Management
- Virtual e-Science Organizations
- Service-Oriented Grid Architectures
- Grid economy and Business Models
- Autonomic, Real-Time and Self-Organizing Grids
- Web semantics for e-Science
- Enabling Technologies for e-Science: Internet and Web Services
- e-Science Experimentation Environments
- Experimentation processes for science in large scale
- Scientific Knowledge Management applied to science in large scale
- Arts, Humanities and e-Social Science
- Bioinformatics and Health
- Physical Sciences and Engineering
- Climate & Earth Sciences


The workshop will accept submissions of technical papers and posters written in either English or Portuguese. Technical papers must not exceed 8 pages, and posters must not exceed 4 pages. Papers and posters should be formatted according to the Brazilian Computer Society paper format. All papers and posters must be submitted using the JEMS conference system.

The technical papers and posters will be reviewed according to the following criteria: adequacy to the workshop scope, relevance, technical quality, clarity, and originality. Technical papers describing preliminary work and ongoing research are also eligible. Assessment of results is desirable but not a pre-condition for the submission of the paper. All technical papers must present related work. Technical papers and posters will be peer reviewed according to recommendations of the committee.

Selected technical papers will be orally presented during the workshop and published on the conference CD. Authors must prepare a poster that will be presented during the poster section.

Selected posters will be presented during a poster section in the event and published on the conference CD. Authors should be available to discuss them with the audience during the poster section.
