Accepted papers and workshop program available here.

PhD students and post-doctoral fellows are eligible for full scholarships for participation provided by the conference organization. Candidates should register by June 30th. For more details, please check the pages at http://escience.ime.usp.br/scholarships.

Call for papers

IEEE e-Science 2014 will host a workshop of works in progress. Although the workshop is open to any interested researcher, the intended target audience is mainly of graduate students at any stage of their research, as well as post-docs starting a career in this area. Students and young researchers are invited to present their projects, preliminary findings, including prototypes, benchmark datasets, and case studies. Students who are still on a preliminary stage in their proposals, or formulating their specific research goals, are particularly encouraged to participate. This conference will provide participants a great opportunity of contact with key researchers in the field, gathering and discussing ideas worth pursuing in their projects. Attendees willing to learn about cutting-edge research in the field are also welcome. The workshop will take place in a single day, prior to the start of IEEE e-Science. Workshop registration will entitle participants to the entire conference.

The workshop will bring together junior and senior researchers, to increase their interaction and expand the community. In the workshop, researchers and graduate students will discuss their work directions from the perspective of peers and experienced researchers of the program committee. The presentations shall be followed by helpful feedback and possibly novel perspectives on the topics of research and on future steps.

Submitted papers will be evaluated by the  program committee, who will evaluate their merit and adequacy. All accepted papers will be published by IEEE. It is a requirement that at least one author of each accepted paper attend the conference.    All authors are expected to attend the full day of presentation and to participate in the discussions.
