Call for Workshop Proposals

Proposals' Deadline: 1st October 2012
Workshop Dates: 25th and 26th March 2013

As with previous AOSD conferences, Modularity: AOSD 2013 will host a
vibrant workshop programme. We invite proposals for one or two day
workshops to be hosted in conjunction with Modularity: AOSD 2013. We
encourage workshop proposals on all conference-related topics,
particularly those that are novel or emerging within the community.
However, the topics of the workshops are not limited to aspects and
AOSD.  The workshop chairs will evaluate each proposal based upon the
relevance of the workshop, it's potential to attract participants and
the likelihood of interesting results emerging. Precedence will be
given to those workshops that propose an innovative format and foster
a collaborative environment between participants. We also welcome
proposals for local workshops (i.e. those where English is not the
primary language), however, English based papers/discussions are
strongly encouraged.

Submission Guidelines

Workshop proposals must be authored by at least two organisers and
should contain the following sections:

1. Workshop Organisers' Information

* The name and contact information of each organiser.

their expertise that is relevant to the workshop and experience as a
workshop organiser.
* Identify a primary contact for the workshop.

2. Workshop Details

* What are the expected goals and results of the workshop? How will
these be achieved?
* An overview of the workshop format, this should include activities
to stimulate collaboration and interaction.
* What is the expected number of participants? How will the workshop
attract this number of people?
* Details of previous workshops in this series or on similar topics.

projector, whiteboard/flipcharts, etc.?

3. Preliminary Call for Papers

A preliminary call for papers should also be included in the workshop
proposal, this will naturally repeat some of the previous information
provided but should instead target potential workshop participants.
The following information should be included:

* Workshop name/acronym.

date, camera-ready date, etc. (these should align to the suggested

Workshop Proceedings

The workshop chairs are currently in negotiation with the ACM to
include the workshop proceedings in the ACM digital library. The
inclusion of a workshop's proceedings in the digital library is
optional and is at the discretion of each workshop's organisers.
However, for consistency we suggest each workshop request papers to be
submitted in ACM formatting and use the following dates for
submissions to meet ACM's publication deadlines:

* Workshop Paper submission deadline: 7th January 2013
* Workshop Paper notification date: 28th January 2013
* Workshop Paper camera-ready deadline: 18th February 2013

How to Submit

Workshop proposals must submitted on or before 1st October 2012 in PDF
format by emailing the workshop chairs at workshops at aosd.net There are
no strict page limits being enforced, however, organisers are strongly
encouraged to keep their proposals concise.

To ensure a balanced workshop program, the workshop chairs will work
closely with the other conference organisers and may suggest the
merging of workshops when deemed appropriate. Upon a workshop proposal
being accepted, the workshop organisers should create and maintain a
workshop website that contains the information set out in call for
papers as well as providing the workshop program in due course. The
workshop chairs will assist in co-ordinating publicity of the
