Call for Proposals

In 2017, the European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP), will be held in Barcelona, Spain. ECOOP will host an array of workshops on a variety of topics in computing from June 19th through 20th. Typically, a workshop either addresses a focused topic in depth or explores connections between object-oriented technologies and other areas.

Proposals

The deadline for workshop proposals will be January 31st, 2017.

A workshop proposal should include the following information:

  1. Name of the workshop.
  2. Duration of the workshop (half-day, full-day, multi-day).
  3. An abstract: 150-200 words describing the workshop, suitable for the ECOOP web site.
  4. A preliminary Call For Workshop Papers describing the workshop’s focus and its main topics.
  5. A summary of the workshop format: e.g., refereed papers, and/or short papers, and/or invited talks, and/or problem solving, and/or brainstorming sessions. How will papers or other submissions be reviewed?
  6. A description of how the workshop papers and results will be published or otherwise disseminated.
  7. References to previous editions of the workshop (if any) including information about the number of participants.
  8. About each organizer:
    • Name, affiliation, and contact information.
    • Primary contact: identify one organizer as the primary contact.
    • A brief biography (up to 200 words), focusing on the organizer’s expertise in the field and experience as a workshop organizer.
  9. Any special requirements that the workshop may have.

Proposal Submission

Workshop proposals should be submitted by email to the ECOOP 2017 workshop organizers, Werner Dietl (wdietl@uwaterloo.ca) and Ernest Teniente (teniente@essi.upc.edu).

Schedule

Each workshop will have to pay attention to the following estimated timing constraints: the workshop’s web page should be up two weeks after notification of acceptance, the Call for Papers should be public by February 20th, the deadline for submission April 20th, and notification May 15th.

Evaluation

  • Proposals will be reviewed by the ECOOP 2017 workshop organizers once submission has closed.
  • Notification will be sent one week after submission has closed.
  • Each proposal will be evaluated according to the value and relevance of its workshop topic, the expertise and experience of the workshop organizers, and the potential of the proposed workshop to attract participants and generate useful results.
  • The number of accepted proposals will be limited by the availability of the conference rooms.

Special Points

We ask you to set up your PC chair and your web page as soon as possible. When building your PC, please consider that it is important that PC members attend the workshop to have lively discussions. It is motivating for workshop participants to meet experts in the field.

Dissemination

A proposal should clearly state how the results of the workshop – the papers and other outcomes – will be made available to participants and others, both before and after the workshop event. Guidance will be provided to organizers who wish to publish their proceedings with Dagstuhl LIPIcs.

Contact

For additional information about this Call for Workshops, please contact the ECOOP 2017 workshop organizers, Werner Dietl (wdietl@uwaterloo.ca) and Ernest Teniente (teniente@essi.upc.edu).
