CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS: 28th International Conference on Logic Programming, Sep 4-8, 2012, Budapest, HUNGARY

http://www.cs.bme.hu/iclp2012/

ICLP 2012, the 28th International Conference on Logic Programming, will be held in Budapest, 
Hungary, from September 4 to 8, 2012.

Workshops collocated with an international conference are one of the best venues for the 
presentation and discussion of preliminary work, novel ideas, and new open problems to a wide 
and interested audience. Collocated workshops also provide an opportunity for presenting 
specialized topics and opportunities for intensive discussions and project collaboration. 
The topics of the workshops collocated with ICLP 2012 can cover any areas related to logic 
programming, (e.g., theory, implementation, environments, language issues, alternative paradigms, 
applications), including cross-disciplinary areas. However, any workshop proposal will be 
considered.

The format of the workshop will be decided by the workshop organizers, but ample time should be 
allowed for general discussion. Workshops can vary in length, but the optimal duration will be 
half a day or a full day.

Workshop Proposal:
==================

Those interested in organizing a workshop at ICLP 2012 are invited to submit a workshop proposal. 
Proposals should be in English and about two pages in length. They should contain:


  * The title of the workshop.
  * A brief technical description of the topics covered by the workshop.
  * A discussion of the timeliness and relevance of the workshop.
  * A list of some related workshops held in the last years
  * The requested number of half-days allotted to the workshop
    and an estimate of the number of expected attendees.
  * The names, affiliation and contact details (email, web page,
    phone) of the workshop organizers together with a designated
    contact person.

  * Previous experience of the workshop organizers in
    workshop/conference organization.

Proposals are expected in ASCII or PDF format. All proposals should be submitted to the Workshop 
Chair by email by February 10, 2012.

Reviewing Process:
==================

Each submitted proposal will be reviewed by the Workshop Chair and the Conference Program Chairs. 
Proposals that appear well-organized and that fit the goals and scope of ICLP will be selected.  
The decision will be notified by email to the responsible organizer by February 26, 2012.

The definitive length of the workshop will be planned according to the number of submissions 
received by the different workshops. For every accepted workshop, the ICLP local organizers will 
prepare a meeting place and arrange the distribution of the workshop proceedings (usually on a 
pendrive). The proceedings, however, should be produced by the workshop organizers. Any workshop 
registration fees will be handled together with the conference fees.

Workshop Organizers' Tasks:
===========================

  * Producing a "Call for Papers" for the workshop and posting it
    on the Internet and other means.A web page URL which will linked
    into the ICLP 2012 home page should be provided by April 30, 2012.

  * Providing a brief description of the workshop for the conference
    program.

  * Reviewing/accepting submitted papers.

  * Scheduling workshop activities in collaboration with the local
    organizers and the Workshop Chair.

  * Sending workshop program and workshop proceedings in PDF
    format to the Workshop Chair for distribution at the conference.

  * The use of the Computing Research Repository (CoRR) for the
    workshop proceedings is strongly recommended. For guidelines, see:
      http://dtai.cs.kuleuven.be/projects/ALP/electronic_publishing.html
    We encourage reading these instructions in advance so that you can
    ask paper authors to prepare the final versions of their papers
    accordingly.
