Call for Workshops

Important Dates
Proposal submission due: 15 November 2017
Notification of acceptance: 15 December 2017
Workshops: 8-9 September 2018
Conference: 8-12 September 2018

The PPSN 2018 Organising Committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with PPSN 2018. The workshops are intended to be forums for presenting and discussing, for example, new emerging approaches or critical reflections within a subfield. They provide an excellent opportunity to meet people with similar interests, to be exposed to cutting-edge research and to exchange ideas in an informal setting. The organisers of an accepted workshop are responsible for its coordination, publicity (e.g., for sending out call for papers/abstracts), collecting and reviewing the papers/abstracts, and maintaining a webpage providing a list of accepted talks. Moreover, organisers can decide between half-day and full-day workshops. The workshop format is also up to the organisers. However, we encourage to facilitate interactive sessions. We suggest to solicit concept papers or abstracts of not more than a few pages’ length, instead of full papers.
