Workshop Proposal

The purpose of these workshops is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and possibly more focused way than the conferences themselves. It offers a good opportunity for young researchers to present their work and to obtain feedback from an interested community. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the organisers, but it is expected that they contain ample time for general discussion. The preference is for one day workshops, but other schedules will also be considered. All the accepted abstracts will be included in the conference proceedings.

The proposal must include.

  1. The name of the workshop.
  2. A statement of goals for the workshop.
  3. The names and addresses of the organisers.
  4. The names of potential participants, such as program committee members.
  5. A description of the plans for call for participation.
  6. The expected number of attendees and the planned length of the workshop.
  7. The topic of the workshop should be relevant to the main conference and details of any previous workshops.
  8. The URL of the workshop web site.
