Call for Workshop Proposals









The International Symposium on Cluster, Cloud and Internet Computing (CCGRID) invites proposals for workshops to be co-located with CCGrid 2023. Workshops provide a forum for discussion among researchers and practitioners on focused topics or emerging research areas relevant to the CCGRID community. Organizers may structure workshops as they see fit, including invited talks, panel discussions, presentations of work in progress, peer-reviewed short/full papers, or a combination of the above.

Workshops are typically held on the first day of the conference (May 1) in parallel tracks, and are recommended to be scheduled for half a day (~3 hours of technical program), but could be proposed for a full day (~6 hours) depending on interest and space constraints. Organizers should design workshops for approximately 20—40 participants, to balance impact and effective discussion.

Peer-reviewed papers accepted by the workshops will be published in the CCGRIDW 2023 companion proceedings to be published online in the IEEE Xplore digital library. Each paper must have at least two reviews to be eligible to appear in the proceedings.

All authors and presenters at the workshop should register for the CCGRID conference at the regular registration rates. One complimentary registration will be provided to a keynote speaker for each workshop.

All deadlines are in Anywhere on Earth (AoE), UTC-12 timezone.
