Acceptance is based on an evaluation of the workshop's potential for
generating useful results, the timeliness and expected interest in the
topic, the organizer's ability to lead a successful workshop, and
potential for attracting sufficient number of participants.
Workshop publicity is responsability of the organizers. In particular they
are responsible for the following items:
1. A workshop description (200 words) for inclusion on the DisCoTec site.
2. Hosting and maintaining web pages to be linked from the DisCoTec site.
Workshop coordinators can integrate their pages into the wiki-page of
3. Workshop proceedings, if any. If there is enough interest, the
organizer of DisCoTec 2011 may contact the editor-in-chief of the
Electronic Proceedings in Theoretical Computer Science
(http://info.eptcs.org/) for having a common volume dedicated to the
workshops of DisCoTec 2011.
4. Publicising the event.
DisCoTec will provide registration and organizational support for the
workshops. Registration fees must be paid for all participants, including
organizers and invited guests.
To cover lunches, coffee breaks and basic organizational expenses, all
workshops will be required to charge a minimum participation fee (the
precise amount is still to be determined). Each workshop may increase this
fee to cover additional expenses such as publication charges, student
scholarships, costs for invited speakers, etc. All fees will be
collected by the DisCoTec organizers as part of the registration, then
additional funds will be redistributed to the individual workshop
