Call for Contributions - ECOOP Workshops
25th European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP 2011)
25 - 29 July, Lancaster, UK

ECOOP 2011 will host an exciting array of workshops that address a variety
of topics in object-oriented technology.  A workshop is a forum for
exchanging ideas and theories that are still in an evolutionary stage. 
Typically, a workshop will either address a focused topic in depth or
explore connections between object-oriented technologies and other areas
of interest.  ECOOP 2011 invites proposals for workshops lasting one or
two days.


- Workshops proposals due: 1 December, 2010
- Notification of acceptance: 22 December, 2010
(Accepted proposals will be expected to meet other deadlines as described

A workshop proposal should include the following information:

A Preliminary Call For Workshop Papers, including:
- Name of the workshop
- Number of days for the workshop
- An abstract: 150-200 words describing the workshop, suitable for the
ECOOP Web site
- A summary of the workshop format: e.g., refereed papers, and/or short
papers, and/or invited talks, and/or problem solving, and/or brainstorming
sessions.  How will papers or other submissions be reviewed?
- A description of how the workshop papers and results will be published
or otherwise disseminated (see note below)
- References to previous workshops on the same/similar topic (if any)

About Each Organizer:
- Name, affiliation, and contact information
- Primary contact: identify one organizer as the primary contact
- A brief biography (up to 200 words), focusing on the organizer's
expertise in the field and experience as a workshop organizer

Overview Of Topic:
- In addition to describing the workshop focus, the overview should also
provide some information about the expected workshop participants
?who are the likely attendees?

Proposal Submission and Review
Workshop proposals should be submitted by email to
ecoop11-workshops at comp.lancs.ac.uk.

Proposals will be reviewed by the ECOOP 2011 Workshop Co-chairs.  Each
proposal will be evaluated according to the value and relevance of its
workshop topic, the expertise and experience of the workshop organizers,
and the potential of the proposed workshop to attract participants and
generate useful results

To ensure the success of the ECOOP 2011 workshop program, accepted
workshops will be expected to meet additional deadlines as summarized

- Workshop call for papers and web site: 1 February, 2011
The web page should also contain the names of the PC members, if any.
- Workshop paper submission deadline: 1 April, 2011
- Workshop paper author notification: 10 May, 2011
- Workshop full program disseminated: 15 May, 2011
- Workshop papers available: 15 June, 2011
The workshop papers should be available to participants, in accordance
with the workshop's plan for disseminating papers and results.

ïWorkshop events: 25 July, 2011 and 26 July, 2011

A proposal should clearly state how the results of the workshop --- i.e.,
the papers and other outcomes --- will be made available to participants
and others, both before and after the workshop event.   The ECOOP 2011
Workshop Co-Chairs will provide guidance to the organizers of accepted
workshops that wish to publish proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.

One should not rely on people's instantaneous and proactive participation
in a workshop.  Many participants tend to adopt a consumer role, rather
than a
producer role, during a workshop.  However, people tend to enjoy and
profit more from workshops in which they take an active role.  Thus,
prepared presentations and formally reviewed papers should usually precede
any creative sessions.

Large groups tend to behave like an audience, whereas groups of four to
eight people are much more likely to interact.  When planning
collaborative sessions, consider having several smaller groups rather than
one large group in order to foster the generation of new ideas.

For additional information about this call for workshops, please contact
the ECOOP 2011 Workshop Co-Chairs, Eric Eide, and Sophia Drossopoulou at
ecoop11-workshops at comp.lancs.ac.uk.
