Workshop Date: 8-10 June 2011
Place: University of Westminster, London, UK
Deadline for paper/abstract submission: 1st April 2011
Notification of acceptance: 22nd April 2011

Registration deadline: 27 May 2011
Date of the workshop: 8-10 June 2011
IWSG-Life’11 will bring together scientists from the field of life sciences, bioinformatics and computer science. The aim is to exchange experiences, formulate ideas and introduce up-to-date technological advances in molecular and systems biology, in the context of Science Gateways.
We invite the submission of papers related to various aspects of molecular and systems biology and Science Gateways/Portals. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
Call for papers
There are three alternatives for researchers to present their work: talks, quick (lightning) talks, and demonstration sessions. Submission of a full paper may result in a talk and submission of an abstract may result in a lightning talk or a demonstration.
Authors of best papers will be invited to submit a significantly extended and updated version of their paper into the Journal of Grid Computing for a Special Issue on Science Gateways.
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. Accepted full papers will be published as open access, online-only workshop proceedings and will result in fully citable articles. The proceedings will be available online, approximately one week prior to the workshop opening. 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. They have to be formatted according to the layout style required by the OUP bioinformatics journal. Formatting requirements can be found at here. The paper length must not exceed eight 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 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).
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.
Abstracts will be accepted electronically in PDF format only and are to be submitted through our EasyChair conference site. The abstract length must not exceed 200 words and the abstracts 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.
