FSE 2016 is soliciting proposals for workshops to be held in
conjunction with the main symposium. Submit a workshop proposal to FSE
to bring together groups of researchers on relevant and exciting
topics. All proposals will be evaluated according to the criteria of
relevance, anticipated level of enthusiasm for the topic, expected
number of participants, and proposers’ experience in organizing a
successful workshop.

FSE 2016 workshops aim to provide opportunities for exchanging views,
advancing ideas, and discussing preliminary results in various areas
of software engineering research and applications. Workshops are not
an alternative forum for presenting full research papers.
