COMPSAC 2013 Call for Workshop Proposals

PDF Call for Workshop Proposals

Workshop themes should be (closely) related to the COMPSAC conference theme. Each workshop proposal should clearly indicate its strength and usefulness and how it complements COMPSAC's conference theme: "The Expanding Sphere of Software and Data." A COMPSAC workshop can be seen as complementary to the COMPSAC main conference, or providing better insight into the COMPSAC topics.

Workshop proposals shall include the following items:
* Workshop's title
* Workshop's organizer(s)' name, affiliation, e-mail address(es).
* Workshop's goal, theme, and topics of interest / workshop scope.
* Workshop's PC (Program Committee) members: name and affiliation.
* Prospective invited speakers (optional)
* Expected number of workshop sessions
* Information on the previously organized Workshops (if any).

Please follow the template-proposal to create your own proposal, and send it to the COMPSAC 2013 workshop chairs no later than November 15th, 2012.

Workshop Ads and Paper Reviewing Process

Every submitted workshop paper will be reviewed by 3 reviewers assigned by the respective workshop chairs from the workshop's PC. The organizers of the accepted workshops are responsible for promoting and advertising their workshops on lists, and personal professional networks, with proper reference to COMPSAC 2013.

Workshop Organizer's Responsibility

Workshop organizers should organize their workshop under the chairmanship of COMPSAC workshop chairs. The responsibilities of the workshop organizers include: (i) distributing the CFpapers on appropriate mailing lists and to relevant research groups, (ii) update the workshop’s web page when needed (with the help of COMPSAC’s web master), (iii) configure the workshop’s paper submission system (with the help of COMPSAC’s web master), and most of all (iv) ensure that the accepted papers are of high quality, while striving for an acceptance ratio of less than 70%.

We encourage workshop organizers to propose a workshop invited speaker also, to increase the workshop's appeal.

Handling of COMPSAC Workshop Papers

COMPSAC 2013 uses a web-based paper review system (MyReview). Workshops will also have to use the same system for paper review. The COMPSAC workshop chairs have the responsibility to configure the dedicated workshop review system, and to input the workshop organizers and respective PC members, as members of the workshop’s review system.

Workshop papers are to be processed as follows:
* Workshop author(s) will submit papers to the corresponding workshop.

* Workshop organizers will inform COMPSAC Workshop Chairs with a list of submitted papers (i.e., paper title and author(s) name and e-mail).

* Workshop organizers will start the paper reviewing process by assigning papers to the respective PC. At least three reviewers should be assigned to each submitted paper.

* Workshop organizers will provide a list of accepted and rejected papers (i.e., paper title, author(s) name and e-mail, and a small justification of why the paper has been accepted / rejected) to the COMPSAC workshop chairs. IEEE CS (Computer Society) Press will send the Author's Kit to authors, accordingly.

* It is possible that some relevant papers, rejected by the main conference, yet bearing enough research value, will be redirected from the main conference to specific workshops. If the authors agree with having their paper considered by some workshop, the respective workshop chairs/organizers will be informed by the general COMPSAC workshops chairs that they need to contact the authors to communicate that their paper is going to be considered by their workshop, inform the authors that they need to resubmit their 6-page workshop version of the conference paper through the workshop’s submission site, and also communicate a date of notification. The workshop chairs can decide themselves or with the help of their PC members, which of the redirected papers are suitable for their workshop. After deciding one way or another, the respective workshop organizers/chairs need to notify the respective authors of their decision.

* Workshop authors will send their camera-ready papers to IEEE CS Press by the respective deadline.

* Workshop organizers will send a WORKSHOP Program (i.e., timetable, session name, session chair, paper title and author(s) names) to COMPSAC workshops chairs.
