European Projects Showcase - IEEE CCGRID 2008
European Projects Showcase - IEEE CCGRID 2008 
Call for contributions    Project Descriptions and Presentations  
         European Project Showcase
         @ IEEE CCGrid 2008, May 2008 (Lyon)

       in collaboration with the
      European CoreGRID Network

"European Projects Showcase" event is taking place for the first time alongside the IEEE CCGrid 2008 conference. This is a 4 hour event (consisting of 2 sessions of two hours), aimed to highlight work taking place in Grid and Cluster Computing in Europe. The event will highlight European and nationally funded Grid projects in Europe, to those attending the IEEE CCGrid conference. Based on previous years, CCGrid has generally attracted a global participation, with significant numbers from Europe and the Asia/Pacific region.

We are expecting to run 16 presentations of 15 minutes each, from different projects across Europe working in Grid and Cluster Computing. This event is being run in collaboration with the European CoreGRID network of excellence. All submissions to this event will be featured on the CoreGRID site at: /mambo/content/view/626/1/

The European Project Showcase is scheduled to take place on May 22, 2008 from 14:00 to 18:30. See conference program linked via the CCGrid 2008 Web site at:

Submission Instructions and Selection Criteria

Authors are encouraged to submit a one page description of their project. The submission should be in PDF format, formatted to A4 paper. Please do not use any special fonts. Use a minimum of 10 points font size.

Please email your submission to: with subject line "European Project Showcase"

Due to a limited time, only 16 presentations will be selected. The criteria for selection are as follows:

1. Identify the current stage of the project. Has it recently started or finished? Projects which have mature deliverables/demonstrators will be given preference. Please indicate if your software deliverables are already downloadable for use.

2. Identify who is involved in the project -- those with a wider European participation in the project will be given preference.

3. Identify whether your project already has a user base.

4. Identify the particular area your project focuses on -- i.e. application area, infrastructure area (which one), etc. Projects which cover emerging application areas will be given preference -- such as interactive gaming, electronic markets, arts and humanities, etc. A diverse mix of application areas will be selected. So, the greater the novelty of your application domain -- the better!

5. Where there is a tie -- the earlier your submission, the greater the likelihood of selection.
