[polarsys-iwg] Last call for Proposals for Workshops at FM2015 (20th Intl. Symposium on Formal Methods); 22.-26. June, 2015, Oslo

News: extra support for workshops offered by FME board

Deadline for proposals: November 14, 2014


The 20th International Symposium on Formal Methods (FM 2015) will take
place in Oslo, Norway, June 22-26, 2015. For this major event, we are
inviting people to submit proposals for workshops.

The purpose of the workshops is to provide an informal setting for
workshop participants to discuss technical issues, exchange research
ideas, and to discuss and/or demonstrate applications. These workshops
may be driven by fundamental academic interests or by needs from
specific application domains. We encourage a diversity of workshops
relating to different varieties of formal models. We also explicitly
welcome satellite events in a non-traditional format, such as formal
methods-related competitions.

To give an extra impulse to the success of workshops, the FME board
offers the possibility to apply for an extra support of 500 euro to
workshops and tutorials. This can be used e.g. to waive the fee of an
invited speaker, the organizer(s) of a tutorial, partial coverage of a
workshop dinner, making manual or books available to tutorial
participants, or any specific things that may contribute to the
scientific quality and/or social interaction within the workshop. Exact
details on how to apply for this support will be provided when the
workshop proposal is accepted.

All workshop proposals must be written in English.

Proposals for workshops should be no more than 3 pages in length and
submitted to the Workshops chair before November 14, 2014 (see below).

A workshop proposal should include a draft call-for-papers containing at
least the following information:

    Title and brief technical description of the workshop, specifying
the goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.
    The names and contact information (web page, email address) of the
Programme Committee (PC) chairs, i.e., the workshop organisers.
Moreover, a tentative list of workshop PC members should be given. We
suggest one or two PC chairs and at least 10 PC members coming from
different countries.

Moreover, the following additional information is requested:

    If the workshop has taken place before:
        How often has the workshop taken place so far?
        Which conference(s) has the workshop been colocated with so far?
        Number of participants in the last installment.
    A discussion of the proposed format and agenda.
    The proposed duration (half, one or two days).
    Procedures for selecting participants and papers.
    Potential invited speakers.
    Expected number of participants.

Each workshop programme chair will be responsible for the following:

    Producing a web page and a "Call for Papers/Participation" for their
    Providing a brief description of the workshop for the conference web
page and programme, and providing a workshop web page the conference can
refer to for details.
    Selecting the papers for the workshop proceedings and providing the
camera ready copies ready for publication.
    All advertising of the workshop beyond web page advertising.
    Appointing session chairs, etc.

The local organisation of the conference will take care of the
production of informal or electronic workshop proceedings, assuming that
the proceedings are camera ready.
