FMOODS & FORTE
It is a good tradition of the DisCoTec series to host one day of workshops as part of the joint event. The workshops will be held on June 9th. Below is the (already expired) call for workshops:
DisCoTec 2011 invites proposals for one day workshops to be part of the joint event. DisCoTec 2011 hosts conferences in the area of coordination languages, distributed systems and formal methods for distributed systems, ranging from practice to theory. Following a good tradition we invite workshops in these areas to provide a forum for presentions of preliminary research results and ongoing work as well as presentions of research work to a focused audience. DisCoTec workshops provide a vivid and open forum for discussions.
One day workshops will be held in conjunction with the main events. Prospective workshop organizers are requested to follow the guidelines below and are encouraged to contact the workshop chairs if any questions arise.
Submission and notification deadlines of the workshops are at the discretion of the individual workshop organizers, however notification must be no later than May 10th 2011, the early registration deadline, for DisCoTec.
Workshop proposals must be written in English, not exceed 5 pages with a reasonable font and margin, and be submitted in PDF format via email to Marcello Bonsangue (marcello at liacs.nl).
Proposals should include the following information:
Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the following committee:
Acceptance is based on an evaluation of the workshop's potential for generating useful results, the timeliness and expected interest in the topic, the organizer's ability to lead a successful workshop, and potential for attracting sufficient number of participants.
Workshop publicity is responsability of the organizers. In particular they are responsible for the following items:
DisCoTec will provide registration and organizational support for the workshops. Registration fees must be paid for all participants, including organizers and invited guests.
To cover lunches, coffee breaks and basic organizational expenses, all workshops will be required to charge a minimum participation fee (the precise amount is still to be determined). Each workshop may increase this fee to cover additional expenses such as publication charges, student scholarships, costs for invited speakers, etc. All fees will be collected by the DisCoTec organizers as part of the registration, then additional funds will be redistributed to the individual workshop organizers.
