               e-Science 2005 Conference: Call for Participation
         International Conference on e-Science and Grid Technologies
                   Dec. 5-8, 2005, Melbourne, Australia

                      Sponsored/Organised By:
    IEEE Computer Society's Technical Committee on Scalable Computing
           Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics
                 University of Melbourne, Australia
                      Queen's University, UK
       National Centre for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA), USA
             National ICT Australia (NICTA), Australia

                           CALL FOR PAPERS

The next generation of scientific research and experiments will be carried
out by communities of researchers from organizations that span national
boundaries. These activities will involve geographically distributed and
heterogeneous resources such as computational systems, scientific
instruments, databases, sensors, software components, networks, and
people. Such large-scale and enhanced scientific endeavors, popularly
termed as e-Science, are carried out via collaborations on a global scale.

Grid computing has emerged as one of the key computing paradigms that
enable the creation and management of Internet-based utility computing
infrastructure, called Cyberinfrastructure, for realization of e-Science
and e-Business at the global level. Several national and international
projects around the world have been initiated to carry out research and
innovation activities that transform the vision of e-Science and Grid
computing into reality.

The e-Science 2005 conference, sponsored by the IEEE Computer Society
Technical Committee for Scalable Computing (TCSC) and Society for
Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM), is designed to bring together
leading international and interdisciplinary research communities,
developers, and users of e-Science applications and enabling IT
technologies. The conference serves as a forum to present the results of
the latest research and product/tool developments, and highlight related
activities from around the world.

The following topics concerning e-Science and Grid Computing are of
interest, but not limited to:

  * Enabling Technologies: Internet and Web Services
  * Collaborative Science Models and Techniques
  * Problem Solving Environments
  * Application Development Environments
  * Programming Paradigms and Models
  * Resource Management and Scheduling
  * Grid Economy and Business Models
  * Autonomic and Self-Organising Grid Networks
  * Virtual Instruments and Access Management
  * Sensor Networks and e-Science
  * Security Challenges
  * Software and Social Engineering
  * e-Science & Grid applications in Physics, Biology, Astronomy,
    Chemistry, Finance, and Engineering.


Authors are invited to submit papers of not more than 8 pages of double
column text using single spaced 10 point size on 8.5 x 11 inch pages, as
per IEEE 8.5 x 11 manuscript guidelines:

Authors should submit a PDF or PostScript (level 2) file that will print
on a PostScript printer. Full paper submission instructions will be placed
on the conference website. It is expected that the proceedings will be
published by the IEEE CS Press, USA and will be made available online
through the IEEE Digital Library.

e-Science 2005 will also feature workshops, tutorials, exhibits, and an
industrial track. To organize or participate in these please see the
conference web site.


The best 6 papers from the workshop will be selected for
journal length extension and their publication in a special issue of the
International Journal of Future Generation Computer Systems (FGCS). The
special issue is expected to be published in early 2006.
