Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for
workshops on topics related to the conference tracks, namely:

atmosphere.

The main responsibility of organising a workshop goes to the
chairperson of the workshop.  The format of each workshop is
determined by its organisers.

The workshop proposals will be selected by the ICALP organization,
under advice of the ICALP PC chairs and EATCS.

Registrations for the workshops affiliated with ICALP 2008 will be
handled by the ICALP organizing committee.

Proposals should include:

* Name and duration (from half a day to two days) of the proposed
  workshop.

* Preference for a pre- or post-conference workshop, if any.  (Note,
  however, that the final choice of the day when the workshop will be
  held and other logistic aspects will be decided by the organizing
  committee.)

* A short scientific summary of the topic, including a discussion on
  the relation with the ICALP topics.

* A description of past versions of the workshop, if any, including
  dates, organisers, submission and acceptance counts, attendance.

* Procedures  for  selecting participants  and  papers,  and  expected
  number of participants.

* Plans  for   dissemination  (for  example, published  proceedings or
  special issues of journals).
