*** MODULARITY '15 ***

14th International Conference on Modularity
March 16-19, 2015
Ft. Collins, Colorado, USA


Workshops are a good venue for students to get initial feedback on their
research endeavors, and for more experienced researchers to brainstorm with
their peers about emerging topics in their field. Workshops are incubators
research. In contrast to conference technical tracks, where presentations
dominate Q&A and interaction, workshops have the potential to foster
spontaneous in-depth discussions of emerging research topics in a focused

We hereby solicit proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the
main Modularity'15 conference. We encourage proposals on conference-related
topics that are novel or of emerging importance. We stress the importance of
active and creative workshops that promise to form a collaborative
of interest to both practitioners and researchers. Workshops can be full or
half day, and devoted to a specific topic of interest in the modularity
or in its neighborhood. Workshops should have a focused topic, provide
opportunity for lively discussion, and attract enthusiastic participants.

Workshop proposals will be judged on originality, relevance to
expected level of interest in the topic, and the organizers ability to lead
successful workshop.

The conference organizers are negotiating with ACM to enable the inclusion
the workshop papers in both the electronic conference proceedings and in the
ACM Digital Library. The inclusion of a workshop's proceedings in the
library is optional and is at the discretion of each workshop's organizers.
However, for consistency we suggest each workshop request papers to be
submitted in ACM formatting (sigplanconf style, 9pt font size) and use the
following dates for submissions to meet ACM's publication deadlines:

    Workshop Paper submission deadline: January 26, 2015
    Workshop Paper notification date: February 16, 2015
    Workshop Paper camera-ready deadline: February 24, 2015

Note that the above requirements are for the actual workshop papers that
are to
be published by ACM not the workshop proposals, and such dates are still
temporary. 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.

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
The organizers of an accepted workshop will be required to create and
a Web site in a timely manner to serve as a workshop information center and
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 Workshops Chair at
workshops at aosd.net, and must be received no later than Oct 15, 2014.
Notifications to submitters will be made no later than Oct 20, 2014. By Nov
2014, workshop initial web sites should be set up and notified to the
Chair, and calls for papers should have been disseminated.
