Conference Call for Workshops

The 16th eScience Conference (eScience 2020) will be held in Osaka, Japan from September 8 – 11, 2020.
The eScience 2020 conference promotes innovation in collaborative research and education across all disciplines,
throughout the research lifecycle.

The eScience conference has a long history of hosting a wide range of well-attended workshops
broadly related to eScience. These workshops play a crucial role in the conference
by providing opportunity for researchers to present their work
and to have in-depth discussions of particular topics of interest to the community.

eScience 2020 welcomes proposals for workshops to be held with the main conference on September 8, 2020.

Workshop organizers are responsible for establishing their own program committee, paper submission system,
collecting and evaluating submissions, notifying authors of acceptance or rejection in due time,
ensuring a transparent and fair selection process, organizing selected papers into sessions,
and assigning session chairs. Proposals that show clear focus and objectives in areas of emerging
or developing interest guaranteed to generate significant interest in the community will be prioritized.

The proceedings of the workshops will be included in the eScience 2020 proceedings. As such,
workshop organizers must follow the publication timeline of the main conference.
For each paper selected for publication, at least one of the authors must be registered for
eScience 2020 to present the paper in person.
