Call for Papers

Submission is closed.

There are three alternatives for researchers to present their work: talks, lightning talks, and demonstration sessions. Submission of a full paper may result in a talk, submission of an abstract may result in a lightning talk or a demonstration. Additionally, attendees are invited to participate in a structured discussion facilitated by EGI.eu.


Accepted full papers will be published in PubMed-listed proceedings together with the proceedings
of the Healthgrid Conference 2012.
Accepted abstracts will be published online on the IWSG-Life webpage.

Full papers

All full papers will be double-blind peer reviewed and evaluated on quality and relevance. All submissions are held in confidentiality prior to publication in the proceedings. Presenters will be given a 20-minute time slot (plus 5 minutes for questions) to provide a summary and update to their work.
Papers will be accepted electronically in PDF format only and are to be submitted through our EasyChair conference site at https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=hgiwsg2012 ("IWSG-Life - full paper" or "IWSG/HealthGrid joint session - full paper"). They have to be formatted according to the layout style required by the IOSPress. Formatting requirements can be found at: http://www.iospress.nl/authco/instruction_crc.html. The paper length must not exceed ten pages and the papers must be written in clear and readable English. Every accepted submission must register and pay for at least one person. We expect one of the authors to attend the workshop and present the work.
 
Abstracts
 
Abstracts can be submitted for the lightning talk or for the demonstration sessions. Authors must indicate clearly which presentation format they are aiming for. All abstracts will be double-blind peer reviewed and evaluated on quality and relevance.
Accepted lightning talk submissions will be given a 10-minute time slot (plus 5 minutes for questions) in an lightning talk session.

Accepted demonstration submissions will be given a 10-minute time slot (plus 5 minutes for questions) in a demonstration session. Demonstrations will be given live to the workshop audience.
