We apologize if you receive multiple copies of this call

*** MODULARITY '16 ***

15th International Conference on Modularity
March 14-17, 2016
Málaga, Spain


Workshops are a good venue for students to get initial feedback on their first
research endeavors, and for more experienced researchers to brainstorm with
their peers about emerging topics in their
field. Workshops are incubators for 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 community.

We hereby solicit proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the
main Modularity'16 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
environment 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 domain 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 Modularity'16,
expected level of interest in the topic, and the organizers ability to lead
a successful workshop.

* Important Dates

    Workshop proposal submission deadline: October 30, 2015
    Notification: within two weeks after submission

* Workshop Proceedings

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. The inclusion of a workshop's proceedings in the
digital 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

    Workshop Paper submission deadline: December 5, 2015
    Workshop Paper notification date: February 6, 2016
    Workshop Paper camera-ready deadline: February 13, 2016

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 Guidelines for Workshop Proposals

A workshop proposal must be authored by at least two organizers, preferably
from different institutions, and should contain a draft text of the
call-for-papers/presentations in ASCII text or PDF format.

It must be sent via email to the Workshops Co-Chairs at
workshops at modularity.info.

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.

Francisco Ortin and Hidehiko Masuhara at workshops at modularity.info.
