Call for Workshops Proposals

The 12th International Federated Conference on Distributed Computing Techniques (DisCoTec 2017) invites proposals for one-day workshops to be part of the joint event. DisCoTec 2017 hosts conferences in the area of coordination languages, distributed systems, and formal methods for distributed systems, ranging from practice to theory. We invite workshops in these areas to provide a vivid and open forum for discussions, presentations of preliminary research results and ongoing work as well as presentations of research work to a focused audience.

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 workshops chair (Romain Rouvoy) if any questions arise.

Acceptance will be based on an evaluation of the workshop’s potential for generating useful results, the timeliness and expected interest in the topics, the organizer’s ability to lead a successful workshop, and potential for attracting participants.

Workshop Publicity

Workshop publicity is responsibility of the workshop organizers. In particular they are in charge of

  1. Providing a workshop description (200 words) for inclusion on the DisCoTec 2017 website.
  2. Hosting and maintaining web pages either on the DisCoTec 2017 website or linked from it.
  3. Editing workshop proceedings, if any.
  4. Publicising the event.

Budget

DisCoTec 2017 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 (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 and will be used to cover the expenses of each workshop as agreed with the workshop organizers.
