A workshop proposal should include a draft call-for-papers containing at least the following information:

  • Title and brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.
  • The names and contact information (web page, e-mail address) of the Programme Committee (PC) chairs, i.e., the workshop organisers.

Each workshop programme chair will be responsible for the following:

  • Providing a brief description of the workshop for the conference web page and programme, and providing a workshop web page the conference can refer to for details.
  • Selecting the papers for the workshop proceedings and providing the camera-ready copies ready for publication.
  • All advertising of the workshop beyond web page advertising.

ESOCC 2017 Workshops are planned to be held September 27th, 2017. On request, additional arrangements for Sept. 26th may be possible (two-day workshops, PC meetings). The workshop participants will be required to register for the workshop through the ESOCC 2017 main registration page.

The local organisation of the conference will take care of the production of informal or electronic workshop proceedings, assuming that the proceedings are camera-ready.
