Call for Workshop Proposals



The organizers and chairs of the workshop shall have responsibility of the call for papers, forming program committee, review and selection of papers as well as planning the workshop program. The registration fee for workshops will be determined by the conference (not the workshop itself). The fees will be paid to the conference, and the conference will provide workshop facilities including the working notes printing, the meeting room, coffee break, lunch, dinner, proceedings, etc.


The proceedings of the ISPEC 2016 workshops will be published by Springer LNCS series (Indexed by EI).


Prospective workshop organizers should send a proposal containing the following information to ISPEC 2016 Workshop Chairs:


 - Title of the workshop (Full name and Abbreviation)

 - Objectives, scope, and contribution to the main conference (up to 1 page)

 - Short bio of the key organizers and their experience on conference/workshop organization

 - Procedure for selecting papers, plans for dissemination (for example, how to advertise and special issues of journals),     and the expected number of participants

 - A tentative list of program committee members

 - The workshop website URL address


Approved workshops should strictly follow the important dates, particularly the paper status notification and camera-ready dates. The submission deadline could be later than that of the main conference. But a workshop should have sufficient time, say 5-7 weeks, for generating peer reviews. Generally, each paper should receive 3 peer reviews.


We look forward to your stimulating proposals and contributions to ISPEC 2016 workshops. A workshop proposal should be submitted to workshop chairs via email by April 1, 2016: { pmu AT zurich DOT ibm DOT com; m DOT d DOT ryan AT cs DOT bham DOT ac DOT uk; syu AT deakin DOT edu DOT au }
