Call for Workshop & Tutorial Proposals

📝

WORKSHOPs

Following the success of previous editions, FPL 2020 will host several workshops on September 3rd & 4th, 2020. We are soliciting proposals for new and recurring workshops to be organized within FPL 2020, as they provide excellent opportunities to bring together researchers and practitioners from different communities to share their experiences in an interactive atmosphere, and to foster collaboration for new and innovative projects. We invite you to submit workshop proposals on any topic related to the broad set of Architectures and Technology, Applications and Benchmarks, Design Methods and Tools, Self-aware and Adaptive Systems, and Trends and Education before the deadline of April 15th, 2020 June 14th, 2020 (extended!).

Workshop proposals will be assessed and reviewed quickly, on a First-Come-First-Served basis, to give enough time and resources to the workshop organizers to attract high-quality submissions. Therefore, early submissions - from March 1st till June 14th - are welcome and will get the go/no-go notification within one week from the submission.

We strongly encourage workshops that focus on innovative and original ideas related to the core topics of FPL. Organizers can choose between invited presentations (to be listed at the time of submission), open call for papers, or a combination of both. Any other forms of interaction with the audience - panels, demos, posters - are of course welcome, as we see workshops as a means of providing as many and dynamic forms of engaging the audience as possible.

For workshops that do include an open call for papers, we point out that the organizers are in charge of setting up the submission, review, and camera-ready management processes. The organizers must also indicate what their expectation for the workshop is (papers submitted, papers accepted).

Workshop organizers are free to arrange the publication of their workshop papers independently. FPL 2020 does not provide workshop proceedings, but will consider including the workshop papers on the website, as long as the workshop organizers can provide their final papers in time.
