ICWE 2009 - Call for Workshop Proposals

ICWE 2009 invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference, related to the ICWE topics. Submissions of workshop proposals focusing on new emerging topics are also more than welcome.

The organizer(s) of approved workshops will be responsible for advertising their workshop, for the reviewing process for their workshop's papers, and for the collection of camera-ready copies of accepted papers (verifying that they comply with the formatting rules), as well as preparing own proceedings (we encourage workshop organizers in particular to consider open sites for on-line proceedings such as http://CEUR-WS.org). Organizers (including co-organizers) are expected to attend their entire workshop and to provide a summary of the event, for presentation to ICWE audience.

The conference organizers will arrange a special track for submissions of the workshop papers under general easychair account for ICWE 2009.

Local organization provides first-class facilities (e.g. wifi all around, good meals, nice scenery and the like).

The workshop may be cancelled if the number of submissions is low.
