fees. It is not necessary to register for FLoC in

- Mid-FLoC workshops: Wednesday & Thursday, July 14-15
- Post-FLoC workshops: Tuesday & Wednesday, July 20, 21 .
* Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for
workshops on topics relating logic, broadly understood, applied to
computer science. Each workshop proposal must indicate one sponsoring
conference among the participating conferences. (It is suggested
that prospective workshop organizers contact the relevant conference
Workshop Chair before submitting a proposal.) Workshops will have to be
financially self-supporting, unless the sponsoring conference
accepts financial responsibility. The FLoC Organizing Committee will
determine the final list of accepted workshops based on the recommendations
from the Workshop Chairs of the sponsoring conferences and subject to
the availability of space and facilities
* Proposals should consist of two parts. First, a short scientific
justification of the proposed topic, its significance, and the
particular benefits of the workshop to the community, as well as a list of
previous or related workshops (if relevant). A second, organizational part
- contact information of the workshop organizers.
- proposed sponsoring conference.
- estimate of the audience size.
- proposed format and agenda (for example, demo sessions, tutorials, etc.)
- potential invited speakers.
- procedures for selecting papers and participants.
- plans for dissemination, if any (for example, special issues of journals) .
- duration (which may vary from one day to two days) and
- special technical or AV needs.
* Workshops are strongly encouraged to find external financial support.
This will be wholly their responsibility. Modest funding, based upon
numbers of registrants, minus FLoC local expenses, will be made available
to each workshop.
* Proposals are due by July 31, 2009. Organizers will be notified by
September 15, 2009. Proposals should be submitted electronically
to EasyChair at the following address (which opens June 18, 2009):
(Clearly indicate at the top of the proposal the relevant conference)
