About ASE Workshops

Workshops at ASE provide an opportunity for exchanging views, advancing ideas, and discussing preliminary results on topics related to Automated Software Engineering. Workshops can also serve as platforms to nurture new scientific communities. Workshops should not be seen as an alternative forum for presenting full research papers.

Call for Workshop Proposals

ASE 2020 is soliciting proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference. The workshops will be co-located with the conference and take place on Monday September 21, 2019 or Friday September 25, 2020. The organizers will decide the exact day after the proposals have been reviewed and accepted. Only one-day workshops can be accepted.

Workshop registration will be waived for one keynote speaker per workshop.

Proposals for organizing workshops should be written in English, limited to 4 pages (in IEEE format, following the formatting guidelines for the main track), and submitted electronically through the ASE 2020 HotCRP submission site.

All submissions must not exceed four pages in PDF format and conform, at time of submission, to the IEEE Conference Proceedings Formatting Guidelines (title in 24pt font and full text in 10pt type, LaTeX users must use \documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran} without including the compsoc or compsocconf option). Submissions should be made through the EasyChair submission site:

Workshop proposals should include the following information:

  • Theme and goals of the workshop including its relevance to the field of Automated Software Engineering.

  • Targeted audience and the expected number of participants (minimum and maximum).

  • Workshop format (e.g., paper presentations, breakout sessions, panel-like discussions, combination of formats).

  • The equipment, room capacity, and any other resource necessary for the organization of the workshop.

  • Publicity strategy, participant solicitation and selection process that will be used by the workshop organizers to promote the workshop.

  • Brief description of the organizer’s background, including relevant past experience on organizing workshops and contact information.

  • Initial version of the call for papers that the workshop organizers intend to use (max. 1page)

  • Workshop duration and any other scheduling constraints.

Note that the workshop co-chairs will consider the scheduling constraints specified by the organizers, but the acceptance of a workshop proposal does not guarantee adherence to the requested date/time. The workshop co-chairs will assume that workshop proposers will be able to run a workshop on the dates that ASE 2020 has reserved for workshops.

Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the ASE 2020 workshop co-chairs. Acceptance will be 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 the potential for attracting a sufficient number of participants. Accepted workshops must adhere to the common deadlines that will be listed for submissions of papers, acceptance of papers and preparation of proceedings
