Workshop Proposals Submission Deadline: 15 April 2013
Workshop Acceptance Notification: 1 June 2013
Deadline for Papers Submitted to Workshops: 30 August 2013
Paper Acceptance Notification: 14 October 2013.

Workshop organizers will be responsible for the following:

Constituting the workshop program committee
Advertising the workshop
Managing the paper review and selection process
Ensuring that at least one author of each accepted paper attends to
present the paper (this may require announcing regulations that
stipulate this as a prerequisite for the publication of the paper in
the workshop proceedings.)
Ensuring that the workshop delivers useful scholarly/research value
via active discussion/debate.

Workshops may be held for a full day or for half a day.

At least one author for each paper accepted to a workshop will need to
register for the workshop programme. 


It is likely that, as in previous years, the post-proceedings of the
accepted workshops will be jointly published as a Springer volume. A
formal proposal to Springer will only be made after the accepted
workshops and their program committees are finalised. Workshops
organisers can opt out of the volume should they wish to; a decision
on this is required at workshop submission stage for planning

Working notes of the workshops (including papers to be eventually
published in the joint workshop volume) will be printed locally for
distribution on the workshop day.  


Workshop proposal should be submitted to the workshop co-chairs at
wc at icsoc.org and should include the following information

Workshop title
Name, affiliation, postal and e-mail addresses of each (proposed) 
     workshop chair
A brief (1-page) CV of each (proposed) workshop chair, highlighting 
     prior experience in organizing similar fora
A brief description of the topic of the workshop and its relevance 
     to the conference (not exceeding 500 words)
Proposed duration of the workshop (full-day or half-day)
A list of likely program committee members
A description of the paper review and selection process (it is 
     recommended that each paper is reviewed by 3 distinct members of
     the workshop program committee)
An estimate of the number of submissions that will be attracted on
     the basis of workshops held in previous years or any other
Plans for invited talks if any. 
A commitment as to whether or not the workshop organisers would like 
    the post-proceedings to appear in Springer together with the other 
Any further information deemed relevant, e.g., previous workshops held
     on similar themes.
