Microsoft e-Science Conference
This is a quick update regarding the 2008 Microsoft eScience Workshop, December 7-9th, 2008 in Indianapolis, IN, USA
The registration site is open at https://www.escienceworkshop2008.com/RegistrationSelect.aspx. We are fortunate to have a block of rooms at the Conrad Hotel Indianapolis which is very close to the event venue. For reservations, go to their website at: http://www.conradindianapolis.com/. In order to receive the workshop rate you must book no later than November 6th.
Amid a chorus of requests, the paper submission deadline has been extended to September 15th.
We are unable to accept any submissions after this date in order for acceptance announcements to go out by the end of October. It is not necessary for you to submit a paper in order to attend.
If you are planning to submit a paper we’d love to accept your 1-2 page position papers, preferably focusing on a computational solution provided to a domain science. For additional details, please see the call for papers at: http://research.microsoft.com/workshops/escience2008/CallForPapers.aspx. We are particularly interested to see presentations and posters that discuss research challenges and how they were or could be overcome through technological means.
The Microsoft External Research team is looking forward to seeing you in Indianapolis this year. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to contact me or send mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
