IEEE e-Science 2011 Workshop on Interoperability in Scientific Computing
5th December 2011, Stockholm, Sweden.

The seventh IEEE e-Science conference, sponsored by the IEEE Computer
Society's Technical Committee for Scalable Computing (TCSC), will be
held in Stockholm, Sweden from 5th - 8th December 2011. The Workshop
on Interoperability in Scientific Computing will be held on the
morning of Monday 5th of December, and is co-located with the main

Approaches to modelling take many forms. The mathematical,
computational and encapsulated components of models can be diverse in
terms of complexity and scale, as well as in published implementation
(mathematics, source code, and executable files). Many of these
systems are attempting to solve real-world problems in isolation.
However the long-term scientific interest is in allowing greater
access to models and their data, and to enable simulations to be
combined in order to address ever more complex issues. Markup
languages, metadata specifications, and ontologies for different
scientific domains have emerged as pathways to greater
interoperability. Domain specific modelling languages allow for a
declarative development process to be achieved. Metadata
specifications enable coupling while ontologies allow cross platform
integration of data.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers from across
scientific disciplines whose computational models require
interoperability. This may arise through interactions between
different domains, systems being modelled, connecting model
repositories, or coupling models themselves, for instance in
multi-scale or hybrid simulations. The outcomes of this workshop will
be to better understand the nature of multidisciplinary computational
modelling and data handling. Moreover we hope to identify common
abstractions and cross-cutting themes in future interoperability
research applied to the broader domain of scientific computing.


We invite submissions for high-quality papers (up to 8 pages in
length) within the context of scientific computing in any of the
traditional sciences (physics, chemistry, biology), engineering, or
scientific/mathematical modelling applied to the social sciences and
humanities. Papers should address progress, results or positions in
one or more of the following areas:

* Use of metadata standards for annotating scientific models and data
* Curating and publishing digital models and data to online repositories
* Meta-modelling and markup languages for model description
* Theoretical frameworks for combining disparate models, multi-scale models
* Using standardised data formats in computational models
* Domain-specific ontologies for the sciences

It is expected that the proceedings of the e-Science 2011 workshops
will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press, USA, and will be
made available online through the IEEE Digital Library.


Authors are invited to submit papers with unpublished, original work
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

Templates are available from here:

Authors should submit a PDF or PostScript (level 2) file that will
print on a PostScript printer. Papers conforming to the above
guidelines should be submitted through the EasyChair submission system

Note, papers should NOT be submitted to the main e-Science 2011 paper
submission system, as they will not be directed to the workshop

It is requested that at least one author of each accepted paper attend
the conference and workshop.


Notification of acceptance: 18th August 2011
Camera-ready: 16th September 2011
Workshop date: 5th December 2011
