EuroSys'19: Call for Workshops 

# General Information 

- Website: 

- Venue: 
Dresden, Germany

- Conference Date: 
25-28 March, 2019

- Workshops Day:
25 March, 2019

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for workshops to
be held in conjunction with the EuroSys’19 conference. The purpose of workshops
is to provide a forum for exchanging opinions, presenting ideas, and discussing
preliminary results in an interactive atmosphere.

Proposals should include (within the limit of 5 pages):

- The workshop name and a 150–200-word abstract describing the workshop,
  suitable for the conference web site.
- A brief CV of each of the organizers including contact addresses and the
  identification of a single primary contact.
- A short summary of the topic, scope and significance of the workshop,
  including a discussion on the relevance to EuroSys topics (please include
  information about past iterations of the workshop, if any).
- Information about the procedure for selecting papers and/or presentations,
  plans for dissemination (for example, online proceedings, special issues of
  journals, position statements distributed to the participants, etc.), the
  expected number of participants, and the planned workshop format.

The definitive dates for workshop submissions, notifications and camera-ready
deadlines are yet to be set. We expect that EuroSys paper notifications will be
sent out 21st of December 2019, thus the workshop submission deadlines should
be after that. Workshop notifications must probably be sent out by mid of
February 2019, so that authors can benefit from the early registration rate.
Workshop organizers will be expected to agree with the workshop chairs on the
dates used for their workshop before announcing them.

All proposals will be judged on their merits and the best proposals will be
accepted. Specifically, workshops that have been organized at previous
iterations of Eurosys are not automatically accepted this year. For instance,
we will take into account the success of previous events (in terms of
attendance, submissions, etc.) in our deliberations.

All workshops will be offered to participate in a common poster and
demonstration session in the afternoon of the workshops day, similarly to some
of the previous EuroSys occurrences. The afternoon coffee break will be
extended to one hour to accommodate for this session. Workshop organizers will
be encouraged to propose their speakers and authors to prepare a poster or
demonstration for this common session, in order to stimulate intra- and
inter-workshop interactions.

# Responsibilities

The EuroSys organization provides:

- A link on the EuroSys Web site
- Management of registration for participants
- Setup of meeting space and related equipment
- Coffee breaks and workshop lunch arrangements
- Organization of the common poster and demonstration session during the
  extended afternoon coffee break

The publication of proceedings is not a requirement for EuroSys workshops.
Workshops wishing to publish online proceedings will have to do it on the ACM
digital library. Workshop proceedings are published in separate volumes from
the EuroSys conference proceedings, but are listed as side events of the
conference. The publication process is under the responsibility of the workshop
organizers but the main conference publication chair will provide the following
bootstrap support:

- Establish contact between the ACM services and workshop publication officers
- Provide ISBN numbers
- Provide support for publishing on the on-site proceedings volume (e.g. USB

The main responsibility of organizing a workshop goes to the chairperson(s) of
the workshop. The workshop organization must take care of:

- Set up and host a webpage for the workshop
- Coordinating deadlines and acceptance notifications for workshop papers with
  the EuroSys Workshop co-chairs
- Workshop publicity, call for papers, and submission and review process
- Providing a brief description of the workshop for inclusion on the EuroSys
  Web page
- If using published proceedings, coordinate with ACM offices to collect
  camera-ready copies of the papers and copyright forms and prepare the final
- Scheduling workshop activities in collaboration with the EuroSys local
