ASE 2024 Call for Workshop Proposals

ASE workshops foster the growth of emerging scientific communities in the area of Automated Software Engineering. They provide a platform for the exchange of views and ideas, and discussion of initial findings on topics. Only one-day workshops will be considered for acceptance. It's important to note that these workshops are in-person events and that ASE does not support hybrid participation. Registration fees for workshops will be waived only for a single keynote speaker per workshop.

All dates are 23:59:59 AoE (UTC-12h).

  • Deadline for workshop proposal submission: Wednesday, March 6, 2024

Workshop Proposal Guidelines

Workshop proposals must be no more than 4 pages in length and conform to the ASE Format and Submission Guidelines (without the double blind restriction). Each proposal should contain the following information. We invite submissions of proposals for workshops that will run alongside the conference. Workshop proposals should include the following information:

  • A brief (max 200 words) abstract of the theme and goals of the workshop, including its relevance to the field of Automated Software Engineering. The abstract should include the theme, goals, and topics of the workshop, as well as a motivation of its relevance and timeliness, including an account of the workshop’s history (if any).
  • A brief description of the organizers’ background, including relevant experience organizing workshops, and their contact information, including the identification of the main contact.
  • Targeted audience and the expected number of participants (minimum and maximum).
  • The equipment, room capacity, and any other resource necessary to organize the workshop.
  • A short description of the workshop and a link to a detailed workshop web page to be linked from the ASE 2024 web page.
  • An initial version of the call for papers that the workshop organizers intend to use (max. 1 page)
  • The workshop format: forms of participation supported (demo, position statement, panel discussion, working session, …) and plans for generating and stimulating discussion. Additionally, a description of this format intended for the ASE 2024 web pages.
  • State whether or not your workshop’s proceedings will appear in the ACM digital library. For a workshop paper to appear in the proceedings, at least one of its authors must register for the workshop.
  • The paper selection procedure, including the types of papers permitted (demos, short, long, position statements, and so on, together with page limits), the expected dates for submission and notification of acceptance, names of proposed and confirmed program committee members.
  • Publicity plans, including a substantiated assessment of the number of expected participants, as well as the participant solicitation and selection process. (Also indicate whether workshop attendance will be open or closed.)
  • Ideally, a workshop proposal should consist of an up-to-two page description (to be potentially included in the conference proceedings, if accepted) and an appendix (up to two pages) containing additional material, if appropriate.
  • Please note that the workshop call for papers should contain the following notification: “ By submitting your article to an ACM Publication, you are hereby acknowledging that you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies, including ACM’s new Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects. Alleged violations of this policy or any ACM Publications Policy will be investigated by ACM and may result in a full retraction of your paper, in addition to other potential penalties, as per ACM Publications Policy. Please ensure that you and your co-authors obtain an ORCID ID, so you can complete the publishing process for your accepted paper. ACM has been involved in ORCID from the start and we have recently made a commitment to collect ORCID IDs from all of our published authors. The collection process has started and will roll out as a requirement throughout 2022. We are committed to improve author discoverability, ensure proper attribution and contribute to ongoing community efforts around name normalization; your ORCID ID will help in these efforts."

Evaluation Criteria

The ASE 2024 workshop co-chairs will assess workshop proposals. The evaluation criteria will include anticipated interest in the workshop's topic, the potential to foster exchange of ideas, the likelihood of attracting an adequate number of participants and the organizer's capability to effectively lead the workshop. Accepted workshops must adhere to the shared deadlines specified for paper submission and acceptance, and the preparation of proceedings.
