Capacity for Transformation - The e-AGE18 Conference

The e-AGE conference had established itself as an important venue for networking among experts and scientists. In 2018, e-AGE will be held under the patronage of HE Professor Adel Tweissi, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, in Amman, Jordan during 2-3 December 2018. This year e-AGE is technically sponsored by IEEE, and the presented papers will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore digital library. Selected papers will be published in a special issue of the International Journal of Advanced Pervasive and Ubiquitous Computing (IJAPUC). The focus will be on demonstrating successes in using the research and education e-Infrastructures at national, regional and global levels. In short words, e-AGE18 “CAPACITY FOR TRANSFORMATION” as the main theme of the conference.

e-AGE18 will include events, workshops and meetings centered around the following:

  • 11th Event on Euro-Mediterranean e-Infrastructure
  • 8th  Annual Meeting of ASREN
  • EUMEDCONNECT3 Project meeting
  • AfricaConnect2 Project meeting
  • Internet2 Middle East SIG Meetings
  • Workshops dedicated for e-Infrastructures users
  • Technical Workshops on R&E networking

Moreover, special sessions will be dedicated to specific domains, mainly focusing on experiences in connectivity and e-Infrastructure, applications and services across a variety of scientific domains. It is also important to show how research infrastructure creates tangible benefits to communities and collaborations. It is still critical to demonstrate how research connectivity can promote collaboration and innovation. Different discussions will be stimulated during e-AGE to drive outcomes and concrete results on practical steps towards developing a regional e-Infrastructure.

Authors are invited to submit full papers reporting on their original and unpublished research in e-Infrastructures and computational and data-intensive sciences. All papers will be peer-reviewed for relevance, quality and originality of research.

Posters are also welcomed, an effective poster presentation is not just a standard research paper stuck to a board. It should summarize your work with graphs and images to tell the story and should use text more sparingly. Featuring a poster at e-AGE will serve as an excellent advertisement for your work, and can act as a great conversation starter with e-AGE participants.

Topics of interest include, but not limited to:

  • Scientific computing and data-intensive e-Science in areas related to energy, environment, health, climate, water, agriculture, biology, economy, medicine, as well as in social sciences and humanities.
  • Perspectives on NRENs, including challenges, operation, sustainability, funding, governance, business models, security and services.
  • Problem-solving environments, Virtual Research Environments, Science Gateways and collaborative tools, applications and services.
  • Education and e-Learning Technologies, access to educational resources, repositories, libraries and contents, clouds, grids, parallel and distributed computing, and high performance computing.
  • Internet technologies and trends, Internet of Things, Security, SDN and AAIs.
