SUBMISSION OF WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for workshops on 
topics in the field of computer science, related to logic in the broad sense. 
Each workshop proposal must indicate at least one conference to be affiliated 
with, and among those exactly one primary hosting conference.

It is suggested that prospective workshop organizers contact the relevant 
conference Workshop Chair(s) before submitting a proposal.

Proposals should be submitted electronically to EasyChair at the following 
address:  http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=floc14cfw

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 should include:

* contact information of the workshop organizers
* proposed primary hosting conference (and possibly other affiliated 
conference(s))
* estimate of the audience size
* proposed format and agenda (for example, paper presentations, tutorials, demo 
sessions, 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 preferred period

The FLoC Organizing Committee will determine the final list of accepted 
workshops based on the recommendations from the Workshop Chairs of the hosting 
conferences and subject to the availability of space and facilities.
