CALL FOR Workshops

Important Dates

Submission due: November 15, 2011

Notification of acceptance: December 15, 2011

Conference: September 1-5, 2012

Scope

The PPSN2012 Organising Committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with PPSN 2012. The workshops are intended to be forums to present and discuss new approaches, visions, or critical reflections within a subfield. They provide an excellent opportunity to meet people with similar interests, to be exposed to cutting-edge research and to exchange ideas in an informal setting. The organizers of an accepted workshop are responsible for its coordination, for its publicity (e.g., for sending out call for papers/abstracts), for collecting and reviewing the papers/abstracts, and for maintaining a webpage providing a list of accepted talks. The workshops can be half day or a full day long. The format can be decided by the organizers who are encouraged to plan interactive sessions. We suggest not to ask for full papers, but rather for concept papers or abstracts of not more than a few pages length. All workshops will be held during one day (Saturday, September 1st, 2012).
