Call for Workshops

Workshops provide a forum for a small group of participants to gather around a shared topic and engage in discussion, creation and/or learning activities. Workshops offer an excellent opportunity for researchers and practitioners to share ideas, gain feedback, foster collaborations, co-create and conduct tutorials.

Workshops will be held concurrently on the first day of the conference (3/11) and maybe half a day or a full day in length. Workshops typically accommodate 15-20 participants each and are open to anyone who has registered for the conference (Some workshops may require the submission of a position paper or the payment of a small additional fee for the use of materials). 

A description of each accepted workshop will be published in the conference proceedings. Workshop organizers are encouraged to follow up the workshop activities via the publication of expanded versions of workshop papers in a special edition of a journal, a co-edited book or any other means that would best serve the objectives of the workshop.

Submission Requirements

  1. Paper (maximum 4 pages).
  2. The Paper should include the following:
    1. Title with the name of the proposed workshop
    2. Abstract, summarizing the workshop in 200 words
    3. Whether the workshop will be a full day workshop or a half day workshop
    4. Background and motivation for the workshop
  3. Maximum size of submission should not exceed 50MB

Workshops will be subjected to a double blind peer review by a panel of domain experts.  Authors are expected to anonymise their papers by removing all author and institutional identity from the title and header of the paper as well as any information embedded within the submission file.  However all references must remain intact, i.e. submitted papers should not have blank references (e.g., "8. REMOVED FOR REVIEWING").  In cases where you build on (and cite) your own work we suggest you refer to yourself in the third person, for example “This study builds on prior work by <author names> [8].” Submissions will be included in the ACM digital library.
