European Union Research Opportunities – Bid Workshop

(EURO-BW 2012)


As part of

The International Conference on High Performance Computing & Simulation (HPCS 2012) or

July 2 – July 6, 2012

Madrid, Spain

Submission Deadline: March 09, 2012

Submissions could be for full papers, short papers, poster papers, or posters


This workshop is designed to bring together researchers from across Europe, and the world, to discuss EU funded projects, and to share thoughts, ideas and case studies of previous (FP7), current (FP7) and future (FP8) European funded projects.

During the workshop we will focus upon sharing ideas on the preparation and development of a European Union (EU) bid, including scoping, developing a research team, co-ordination and delivering successful results.

A key focus of the workshop will be the establishment of new and exciting collaborations, so research visions for potential EU bids are welcome. Sessions will be organized where researchers can get together and work on a potential EU bid, or simply shape potential research ideas which may later be developed into a research bid.

The Workshop topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:

    • Preparing EU bids

    • Successful EU bids (case studies)

    • Sharing good practice

    • Successful co-ordination of research teams within an EU framework

    • Developing new research collaborations

    • Working towards FP8 (Horizon 2020)


You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on above and other topics related to European Union research opportunities and bid. Submitted papers must not have been published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Submission should include a cover page with authors' names, affiliation addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and email addresses. Please, indicate clearly the corresponding author and include up to 6 keywords from the above list of topics and an abstract of no more than 400 words. The full manuscript should be at most 7 pages using the two-column IEEE format. Additional pages will be charged additional fee. Short papers (up to 4 pages), poster papers and posters (please refer to for the submission details) will also be accepted for submission. Please include page numbers on all preliminary submissions to make it easier for reviewers to provide helpful comments.
