Call for Workshop Proposals

ICWE 2013 invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with ICWE 2013 and related to the topics of interest of the conference. ICWE workshops allow for the presentation and discussion of ongoing work in a less formal setting than the main conference. Submissions of workshop proposals focusing on new emerging topics are also welcome.
The organizers of approved workshops will be responsible for advertising their workshop, for managing the reviewing process, and for the collection of camera-ready copies of accepted papers (verifying that they comply with the formatting rules). Workshops may be cancelled or merged with other workshops if the number of submissions is low.

Workshop proceedings of ICWE 2013 will appear as post-proceeding in the Springer LNCS series.

Conference facilities such as meeting rooms, wireless Internet and meals will be provided by the local organizers. Organizers are expected to attend their entire workshop and to provide a summary of the event, for presentation to ICWE audience. Dedicated and proactive workshop organization is strongly encouraged.


       Workshop proposals should include the following information:

  1. Title: The title of the workshop.
  2. Format: Length of the workshop (1 day, 1/2 day) and planned length of presentations at the workshop.
  3. Purpose: How does the focus of the workshop fit to the main conference and how will the workshop serve the ICWE community? What are the main goals? Please include a list of the workshop topics. If applicable, report on outcomes and results of previous editions of the workshop series.
