We invite proposals for one-day workshops to be held in conjunction with the
MODULARITY: aosd.12 conference. We encourage proposals on conference-related
topics that are novel or of emerging importance. Each workshop proposal will
be evaluated according to the value and relevance of its topic, the
expertise and experience of the workshop organizers, and the workshop's
potential for attracting participants and generating useful results. We
stress the importance of active and creative workshops that foster a
collaborative environment of interest to both practitioners and researchers.
We encourage workshop proposals that are highly interactive, rather than


Submission Guidelines


A workshop proposal must be authored by at least two organizers, preferably
from different institutions, and should contain the following three


1) About the Organizers


- Name: Organizer's full name

address, URL, phone number, and fax number

- Brief biography: 100-200 words, focusing on the organizer's expertise in
the field and experience as a workshop organizer

2) About the Workshop


- Title: Workshop title and acronym

- Abstract: 150-200 words describing the workshop, suitable for the
conference Web site and advance program

- Topics and motivation: What are the topics, themes, and areas of interest
of the workshop? How is the workshop relevant to AOSD? How does the workshop
connect AOSD to other research communities, if at all?

- Goals and expected results: Explicitly state the goals of the workshop and
how you intend to reach them. What are the expected results of the workshop?
How will these results be disseminated?

- Format: What is the planned workshop format? What will be done to
stimulate collaborative interaction? What are the planned pre- and
post-workshop activities?

- Participants: What is the expected number of participants? Explain why
this workshop will attract a sufficient number of attendees. Specify the
participant selection process.

- Previous workshops: Have there been previous workshops on the same topic?
When, where, and how many participants?

- Required equipment: Overhead projector, PC projector, whiteboard, flip
charts, microphone, etc.



3) A Preliminary Call for Workshop Papers


This will necessarily repeat some of the information from the previous
sections, but should be targeted towards prospective participants. The
workshop call for papers should address the following items:


- Overview of the motivation, topics, and goals

- Workshop format

- Deadlines of the workshop

- Submission guidelines and review process

- References to previous workshops (Web sites)


ACM Publication


The conference organizers are negotiating with ACM to enable the inclusion
of the workshop papers in both the electronic conference proceedings and in
the ACM Digital Library. We suggest the workshop organizers make use of this
option. For ACM publication, final versions of each workshop paper will have
to be prepared using ACM formatting, granting ACM copyright and will have to
be limited in length to five pages. The workshop organizers are responsible
for assembling their workshop proceedings and therefore ensuring correct
formatting. Workshop organizers should send the workshop chairs the list of
accepted papers by Friday, January 13, 2012 and the workshop proceedings by,
January 27, 2012. (Hard deadlines)


Note that the above requirements are for the actual workshop papers that are
to be published by ACM, not the workshop proposals. Workshop proposals
should mention these paper formatting requirements in the sample Call for
Papers, and have compatible deadlines.


Submission requirements


Proposals must be submitted in ASCII text or PDF format. Relevant supporting
materials, such as proceedings from previous offerings of the proposed
workshop (or other workshops run by the proposal authors), should be
included if available but are not required for submission.


To obtain a balanced and cohesive workshop program, the Conference Committee
will collaborate closely with workshop organizers and reserves the right to
circulate proposals to other submitters in view of possible workshop
mergers. The organizers of an accepted workshop will be required to create
and maintain a Web site in a timely manner to serve as a workshop
information center and to provide a repository for documenting pre- and
post-workshop activities. Recommended paper submission deadline and
notification deadlines will be notified here when available.


How to submit


Workshop proposals must be sent via email to the Workshop Chairs at, and
must be received no later than Friday, September 23, 2011. Notifications to
submitters will be made no later than Friday, September 30, 2011.

By Friday, October 14, 2011, workshop initial web sites should be set up and
notified to the Workshop Chairs, and preferably calls for papers should have
been sent out.
