- Conference Information
The conference IBERGRID'2011 is being organized by the Institute of Physics of Cantabria in Santander and will take place from 8 to 10th of June 2011.
IBERGRID'2011 is the fifth edition of a series of Iberian Grid Infrastructure Conferences initiated in 2007 under the framework of the bilateral agreement for Science and Technology signed in November 2003 between Portugal and Spain, aiming to leverage the construction of a common Iberian Grid Infrastructure and to foster cooperation in the fields of grid computing and supercomputing.
The main goal of the IBERGRID'2011 conference is to constitute a forum where the advances in the development of grid infrastructures, technologies and applications are discussed by the main players in Iberian and Latin American countries. This year’s conference lemma is “The Digital Infrastructure for European Researchers”, specially aiming at future plans and integration activities in the frame of the European and International e-Science arena.
- Important Dates
Papers due: MARCH 7th 2011
Early Bird registration ends: MAY 10th 2011
Conference in Santander: JUNE 8-10, 2011
In order to encourage contributions, besides the usual conference proceedings publication, this year a selection of the best contributions will be published in the Journal "Computing and Informatics".
It is important to respect the deadlines as the peer-review process will take longer than in previous years, due to editorial constraints.
- Topics of interest
The principal topics of IBERGRID 2011 include:
- European Grid Initiative - EGI and IBERGRID infrastructure
- Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe - PRACE
- Virtualization techniques on top of computing resources
- Interactive SuperComputing
- Green IT : designing of Computing Center facilities
- Large Data Repositories
- Applications over very high performance networks
- ESFRI implementations in the Iberian area
- LHC Computing Grid and Tier-0 topology
- Applications oriented to Volunteer computing
- Expanding beyond classic user communities
Priority will be given to papers describing ongoing R&D collaborative Grid projects between Portuguese, Spanish and Latin American institutions.
- Paper submission
Full papers are invited on all topics of the conference and related fields relevant to the conference scope. In order to encourage authors to write their contributions, besides the usual conference proceedings publication, this year a selection of the best contributions will be published in the Journal "Computing and Informatics".
It is important to respect the deadlines as the peer-review process will take longer than in previous years due to the editorial constraints in the Journal.
Structure for paper submission:
- Authors and authors affiliations, including postal and e-mail addresses.
- 3 to 5 keywords
- Abstract (500-1000 words)
- Full text in English limited to a maximum of 12 A4 pages
- Short biographies (maximum of 100 words) of each author
Student authors wishing to participate in the best paper award competition must include the following footnote text in their papers "Candidate to the best student paper award" and provide information that ensures they are currently a graduate, master or doctoral student.
All papers must be submitted in English. English, Portuguese and Spanish are accepted languages for oral presentation of papers at conference sessions.
Detailed paper submission instructions for authors are available on the
web page of the event: ibergrid.eu/2011/submission
There will be an opportunity for companies, research groups or projects to present new results or demonstrations. Demonstrations and exhibits will be offered throughout the conference in the exhibition area around the conference rooms. Proposals of scientific demos can be submitted through the call for papers and industrial exhibits please contact
