Call For Workshop Proposals

Workshop Proposal Submission Deadline: 15 April 2013

Workshop Acceptance Notification: 1 June 2013

Workshop organizers will be responsible for the following:

  • Constituting the workshop program committee
  • Advertising the workshop
  • Managing the paper review and selection process
  • Ensuring that at least one author of each accepted paper attends to present the paper (this may require announcing regulations that stipulate this as a prerequisite for the publication of the paper in the workshop proceedings.)
  • Ensuring that the workshop delivers useful scholarly/research value via active discussion/debate.

Workshops may be held for a full day or for half a day.

At least one author for each paper accepted to a workshop will need to register for the workshop programme.


It is likely that, as in previous years, the post-proceedings of the accepted workshops will be jointly published as a Springer volume. A formal proposal to Springer will only be made after the accepted workshops and their program committees are finalised. Workshops organisers can opt out of the volume should they wish to; a decision on this is required at workshop submission stage for planning purposes.

Working notes of the workshops (including papers to be eventually published in the joint workshop volume) will be printed locally for distribution on the workshop day.


Workshop proposal shall be submitted to workshop co-chairs at and should include the following information:

  • Workshop title
  • Name, affiliation, postal and e-mail addresses of each (proposed) workshop chair
  • A brief (1-page) CV of each (proposed) workshop chair, highlighting prior experience in organizing similar fora
  • A brief description of the topic of the workshop and its relevance to the conference (not exceeding 500 words)
  • Proposed duration of the workshop (full-day or half-day)
  • A list of likely program committee members
  • A description of the paper review and selection process (it is recommended that each paper is reviewed by 3 distinct members of the workshop program committee)
  • An estimate of the number of submissions that will be attracted on the basis of workshops held in previous years or any other information.
  • Plans for invited talks if any.
  • A commitment as to whether or not the workshop organisers would like the post-proceedings to appear in Springer together with the other workshops.
  • Any further information deemed relevant, e.g., previous workshops held on similar themes.
