<Programming> 2020 : The Art, Science, and Engineering of Programming

March 23-26, 2020, Porto, Portugal
http://2020.programming-conference.org <http://2020.programming-conference.org/>

https://2020.programming-conference.org/track/programming-2020-workshops <https://2020.programming-conference.org/track/programming-2020-workshops>
To build a community and to foster an environment where participants can 
exchange ideas and experiences related to practical software 
development, ‹Programming› will host a number of workshops, during the 
days before the main conference. The workshops will provide a 
collaborative forum to exchange recent and/or preliminary results, to 
conduct intensive discussions on a particular topic, or to coordinate 
efforts between representatives of a technical community. They are 
intended as a forum for lively discussion of innovative ideas, recent 
progress, or practical experience on programming and applied software 
development in general for specific aspects, specific problems, or 
domain-specific needs. 

This year, we would like to host various types of meetings as well as 
traditional workshops.  Possible types of workshops include a meeting 
like a Dagstuhl Seminar or Shonan meeting, a gathering for an 
international research project, a tool demo/tutorial, hands-on workshops 
in which participants experience one or several aspects of practical 
software development, and so on. Open meetings are preferable but 
closed ones could be accepted. We are flexible; if you have any ideas 
or questions, please contact the workshops co-chairs.

The duration of workshops is in general one day, but we encourage the 
submission of half-day workshop proposals on focused topics as well. In 
exceptional situations, e.g., for workshops that involve actual practice 
of programming-related activities, workshop organizers can request a 2 
day workshop slot. If desired, the workshop proceedings can be published 
in the post-conference Companion Proceedings, in the ACM Digital Library. 

### Submission Deadlines

Deadline: October 3rd, 2019

Notifications will go out as soon as possible, within a week after the deadline.

including information for the questions marked with (*).

2(*). Who organizes the workshop?
    - Organizers and primary contact (name / affiliation / email)
    - Brief details on the organizers (previous workshop organizing experience, etc.)
    - Data on potential previous iterations of the workshop
        - How many participants do you expect (please make at least an educated guess)
        - What kind of equipment do you need (e.g., data projector, computer, whiteboard)
    - Advertisement: Planed advertisement strategy to ensure sufficient participation
3. Is there going to be a workshop program committee?

### Notes on Proceedings

Workshops that wish to have their proceedings published in the ACM DL will have the opportunity to have either a pre or post proceedings. However, chairs will be responsible for making sure that camera ready deadlines are respected so that final copies and metadata are collected on time. The deadlines mentioned above are **strict** and we won't be able to extend them. Please consider them carefully when determining your deadlines for the workshop.
