As a potential workshop organizer, please consider the following points while you prepare your proposal:

  • Workshop attendees are required to register to the joint conference event. Attendance to workshops is included in the registration fee.
  • Workshops will benefit from the EDBT/ICDT 2012 organizational infrastructure and receive administrative support (registration, badges, refreshments, hotel booking, etc.).

Your proposal should contain the following pertinent information:

  • Names, affiliations, and e-mail addresses of the workshop organizers. Please mark the primary contact person.
  • A brief description of the workshop, including the workshop's name and topic, and a short summary of the technical issues in the focus of the workshop. A sketch of the workshop's Call for Papers will be helpful.
  • Preferred workshop duration, format and an estimate of the number of expected participants.
  • Information on the workshop program committee (as far as available to you then) and a note on your plans regarding workshop proceedings publication.
  • Short information on previous editions of the workshop series (if applicable), including conference it was co-located with, number of registrants, number of submitted papers, number of accepted papers, and any other information you feel is relevant.

Based on the input you provide, the decision about the acceptance or rejection of your proposal as a co-located workshop will be made by the EDBT/ICDT 2012 General, Program, and Workshop Chairs. We expect you to work with the EDBT/ICDT 2012 local organizers on the details and publicity aspects of your accepted workshop.
