 First Call for Satellite Events Proposals: Workshops and Tutorials
 17th International Federated Conference on Distributed Computing Techniques
 DisCoTec 2022
 Lucca, Italy, 13-17 June 2022

DisCoTec 2022 is one of the major events sponsored by the International
Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) and the European Association
for Programming Languages and Systems (EAPLS). It gathers conferences and
workshops that cover a broad spectrum of distributed computing subjects —
from theoretical foundations and formal description techniques, testing and
verification methods, to language design and system implementation

Pre-conference workshops and tutorials will take place on Monday, June 13,
2022, and post-conference workshops on Friday, June 17, 2022.

Submissions of workshop proposals must reach the workshop chairs by
December 21, 2021.

* Workshops *

The DisCoTec 2022 organising committee solicits proposals for workshops to
provide a vivid and open forum for discussions among active researchers on
topics related to the distributed computing field. The aim is to facilitate
the exchange of ideas and experiences via presentations of preliminary
research results and ongoing works, as well as presentations of research
work to a focussed audience.

A workshop associated with DisCoTec 2022 can be one-day or half-day in
length. Workshop registration will be done together with the main
conferences, allowing workshop-only registrations as well.

A workshop proposal must include the following information:
  - name of the workshop
  - contact information of the Workshop Chair(s)
  - brief description of the aim and scope of the workshop (max. 500 words)
  - tentative Program and Organization Committees, if available
  - number of (expected) submissions and/or attendees
  - history of the workshop, if any, including the numbers of submissions,
    accepted papers, and attendees of the last edition
  - any other relevant information (e.g., invited speakers, panels)

Important dates (for all workshops):
  - December 21, 2021: Workshop proposal submission deadline
  - December 27, 2021: Notification of accepted workshop proposals
  - Mid April 2022: Workshop paper submission deadline
  - Mid May 2022: Notification of accepted workshop papers
  - June 13 and 17, 2022: Workshops

The submission and notification deadlines of the workshops are at the
discretion of the individual workshop chairs. However, the notification
must be no later than the early registration deadline for DisCoTec 2022 (to
be announced).

Workshop proposals can be submitted to the Workshop Chair via the following

* Tutorials *

The DisCoTec 2022 organising committee encourages proposals for tutorials
to complement the program of the main conferences and co-located workshops.
The scope of a tutorial should focus on emerging topics and aspects of the
distributed computing field, ranging from new practical techniques and
technologies to lessons learnt from projects and industry experiences. No
marketing or product-specific tutorials will be accepted.

A tutorial associated with DisCoTec 2022 can be short (1 session lasting up
to 1.5 hours) or long (2 sessions lasting up to 3 hours in total).
Tutorials will be included in both full and workshop-only registrations.

A tutorial proposal must include the following information:
  - title of the tutorial
  - contact information and short bio of the tutorial speaker(s)
  - brief description of the aim and scope of the tutorial (max. 500 words)
  - brief discussion about why the tutorial topic is relevant to the
    DisCoTec community  (max. 200 words)
  - intended audience (academics, students, practitioners, etc.)
  - any prior experience for the speaker(s) giving this or related tutorial

Important dates (for all tutorials):
  - February 28, 2022: Tutorial proposal submission deadline
  - March 07, 2022: Notification of accepted workshop proposals
  - June 13, 2022: Tutorials

Tutorial proposals can be submitted to the Workshops and Tutorials Chair
via the following form:

* COVID-19 pandemic *

DisCoTec 2022 should take place physically in Lucca. Anyway, we are
monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic development and are prepared to run the
conferences and the satellite events virtually or in a hybrid fashion in
the unfortunate situation that a physical event is not feasible. The paper
selection process and the publication of proceedings will not be affected
regardless of whether the event is held physically, virtually or in a
hybrid fashion.
