CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS
Revised Deadline: April 10th, 2011CONTEXT'11 invites proposals for the workshop program. Workshops will be held on September 26th/27th immediately prior to the main program of the conference.
GENERAL INFORMATIONThe main goal of the CONTEXT'11 workshop program is to stimulate and facilitate an active exchange on unique and interdisciplinary applications, ideas, approaches, and methods about specific topics in the general area of Modeling and Using Context. The Workshops provide a setting that fosters informal discussion and active engagement among attendees. Researchers from all disciplines are invited to submit proposals for workshop for review. Workshops on specific relevant aspects of broader topics and newly evolving areas of Context are particularly encouraged.
Workshops in general will be one full day in duration, exceptionally lasting half a day or two days. Format and content of each workshop will largely be determined by each workshop's organizing committee. Proposals for "mini-conference" style workshops are discouraged and ample time should be allotted for general discussion. Workshop organizers and attendees must register for the main CONTEXT'11 conference.
For presenting workshop summaries to all conference attendees, a time slot of about 10 minutes each will be provided in coordination with the main conference's regular sessions. These summaries should be presented by at least one of the workshop's organizers.
SUBMISSION OF PROPOSALSWorkshop proposals should include a main document and an appendix. The main document should be no longer than two pages and include:
- The proposed title of the workshop
- The names of the workshop organizers
- A brief introduction to the area
- Expected results of the workshop
- Any important references (max 5)
- A brief description of the technical issues the workshop addresses
- A brief discussion of target audience and relevance to CONTEXT'11
- A description of the intended workshop format and style
- A preliminary workshop schedule
- A description of the paper review process
- A list of potential program committee members with affiliations
- An estimated number of attendees with justification
- A list of related workshops with dates and location
- Contact information, titles and affiliations of workshop organizers. Workshop organizers should consist of three individuals knowledgeable about the technical issues to be addressed and, ideally, not being from the same institution
RESPONSIBILITIES OF CONTEXT'11 AND WORKSHOP ORGANIZERSFor all accepted proposals, CONTEXT'11 will be responsible for:
- Providing a meeting place for the workshop
- Determining the workshop date and time
- Duplicating working notes
- Setting up a web site for the workshop
- Advertising the workshop and issuing a call for papers/participation
- Review and select presentations and papers
- Providing the complete workshop's working notes as single PDF file
- Ensure registration of workshop organizers and participants to the main conference
- Arrange for special requirements with the CONTEXT'11 Workshop Chair no later than August 30th, 2011
CONTEXT'11 reserves the right to cancel any workshop if the above responsibilities are not fulfilled, or if too few attendees register for the workshop. In special cases, the CONTEXT'11 program committee may suggest the consolidation of workshops, to prevent the need for cancellation.
The decision on the acceptance of workshops to be included in the final CONTEXT'11 program will be based upon multiple factors, among others, scientific and/or technical interest of the topic, the proposal's quality, distinctness and balance of the workshop's topics, and the capacity of the conference workshop program.
