Call for Workshops

The workshop proposals must include: 

  • A title.
  • The names, affiliations and brief bio of the organizers (including a description of their qualifications relative to the topic area, and past experience in organizing/facilitating workshops or research meetings); take into account that a typical workshop should count no more than three co-chairs affiliated with different organizations. Name one organizer as the primary contact.
  • Proposed duration of the workshop – half or full day. The organizers may exceptionally consider well justified 2-day workshops.
  • Preference for a date – although you should consider that the proposal must not be conditioned on the workshop date, since it is likely that some workshops will not get their preferred date.
  • A statement of the workshop: objective/goals.
  • A statement detailing: Why is the workshop topic important? Why is the workshop timely?
  • A two-paragraph description of the workshop topic and themes.
  • List any other related or same workshops being conducted in the same year, or that were conducted, at any other venues.
  • A description of the workshop format: How many papers do you expect to have, how many invited speakers, type of activities (e.g., short paper presentation, invited talks, demos, posters, etc.), and an approximate timeline (breaks should be synchronized with scheduled breaks if possible.)
  • A description of how workshop submissions will be evaluated, and a tentative PC list (with indication of whether PC members have already been contacted and/or have expressed interest.)
  • An indication on whether the workshop registration will be open to all interested registered parties or limited.
