ICCBR 2007 Workshops:

The organising committee of the 7th International Conference on
Case-Based Reasoning ICCBR 2007 invites proposals for the Workshop
program.  Workshops will be held on 15 August 2007 in the Europa hotel
in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

General Information:

ICCBR 2007 workshops will provide an informal setting in which
participants will have the opportunity to discuss specific technical
topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active cross-fertilization of
ideas. Workshops that explore interactions between sub-areas of CBR,
focus on unique or interdisciplinary applications of CBR, and
investigate newly evolving areas of CBR are particularly encouraged.

The format and content of each workshop will largely be determined by
each workshop organizing committee although "mini-conference"
proposals are discouraged. To stimulate interaction and a broad
exchange of ideas, ample time should be allotted in each workshop for
general discussion.

As in past conferences, a time slot of about 20 minutes each will be
provided for the presentation of workshop summaries to all conference
attendants during the main conference. These summaries should be
presented by (one of) each workshop's organizers.

Each workshop organizing committee will be responsible for:

 1. Producing a Call for Participation for their workshop. It should
 clarify the process by which the organizing committee will review and
 select the papers and presentations. In addition, the submission
 procedure, format, and dates should be included, and be in accordance
 with the dates listed below;

 2. Review and select presentations and papers;

 3. Edit their workshop's notes and send them to the workshop
 coordinator (contact details below) in accordance with the dates listed.

ICCBR 2007 will provide:

* A meeting place for the workshop.
* Printing of the workshop notes.

Submission of Workshop Proposals

Members from all areas of the CBR and related communities are invited to
submit workshop proposals for review. Workshop proposals should provide
sufficient information to evaluate the quality and importance of the
topic, the goals of the workshop, and the size of the interested community.

Proposals should identify one or more chairs and a program committee.

Proposals should be 2-4 pages and contain the following information:

 * Proposed title of the workshop.
 * Contact information for the proposer, including the names, postal
   addresses, phone numbers, and email address.
 * A brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the
   workshop goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.
 * A brief discussion of why and to whom the workshop is of interest.
 * A draft call for papers.
 * A preliminary workshop agenda and schedule for the workshop. This
   should include a brief description of how the organizers intend to
   conduct the workshop (e.g., discussions, panel discussions, paper
   presentations, invited talks or other types of communication).
 * If available, a list of interested participants or groups. If a
   similar workshops were held in the past, include information about
   received submissions and attendance.
 * Intended means of advertising the workshop.
 * Contact information, including the names, postal addresses, phone
   numbers, and email addresses (if available) of the proposed workshop
   organizing committee. This committee should consist of three or four
   people knowledgeable about the technical issues to be addressed.
   Ideally, these people should not be from the same institution.

Workshop proposals should  be submitted via e-mail. Please forward an
electronic copy in pdf format as soon as possible but no later than
February 12, 2007 to the workshop coordinator:

 davils@uncc.edu (Subject: ICCBR 2007 Workshop Proposal)

Proposals will be reviewed by the organizing committee and prospective
organizers will be notified of their decision no later than February
26, 2007.

Other Information

Workshop papers should be submitted in Springer LNCS format, which is
the format required for the final camera ready copy, with a maximum of
10 pages. Authors' instructions along with LaTeX and Word macro files
are available on the web at http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html

Any special audio-visual requirements and special room requirements
must be arranged with the workshop coordinator. ICCBR reserves the
right to cancel any workshop if deadlines are missed, if too few
submissions are received, or if too few attendees register for the
workshop to support the costs of holding it. In special cases, the
ICCBR organizing committee may suggest the consolidation of workshops,
to prevent the need for cancellation.

To cover costs, it may be necessary to charge workshop participants a
workshop fee in addition to the normal ICCBR 2007 conference
registration fee.

Please, note that all workshop participants must register for the
conference, and that the workshops must be open to all registered
participants of ICCBR 2007.
