  • Apr 2, 2018: Workshop proposals deadline
  • Apr 9, 2018: Notification of acceptance/rejection of a workshop

Workshop Organization

ICDF2C workshops are dynamic and intimate forums in which to explore and discuss topics in depth. We, therefore, encourage having an international team of organizers for a workshop who are from different institutions and represent a variety of perspectives. We aim for a balanced workshop program offering a diverse set of themes. Because of the unique opportunity for discussion this forum offers, we encourage workshop plans that emphasize interactive components, group activities, and discussion over those that focus on individual talks. Organizers should be active themselves in the field in which they propose a workshop. All listed organizers are expected to attend those workshops they are organizing; i.e., do not include a potential organizer who may not be present at the workshop. Any change to the workshop organization team must be submitted in writing at least two weeks prior to the position paper deadline for individual workshops. No changes to the workshop organization team can be made after this date to ensure that potential participants submitting position papers to workshops are aware of the final organization team. Please feel free to discuss ideas for a workshop proposal by email with the workshop chairs prior to submission.

Proposal Submission Process

All submissions should be submitted through Easychair no later than at the date provided above. For pre-proposal submission, inquiries contact the workshops chair Ibrahim Baggili.

Proposal Content

  • Workshop title
  • Description of topic(s), potential speakers, program length, hands-on activity and potential audience (1,000 words)
  • Name, affiliation and e-mail address for each organizer
  • Identification of the primary contact person(s)
  • Proposer Resume(s)
  • Soliciting Submissions: Indicate how you plan to attract submissions and/or participants. Tactics may include creating a workshop web page, circulating a call to relevant mailing lists (indicate these please as well), and publicizing your workshop at other relevant venues.

Workshop Selection

Workshop proposals will be peer-reviewed by the Co-Chairs and a committee of experts based on the criteria described below. We aim to select a diverse set of workshops and avoid having multiple workshops on overlapping themes. Organizers of selected workshops will be asked to produce a Call for Papers to describe the workshop to potential participants and solicit submissions.

The criteria for assessment will include:

  • Originality and technical merit of the topic
  • Wider interest in the topic
  • Topical link to the main conference
