Workshop Proposal Submission

Workshop themes should be (closely) related to the COMPSAC conference theme.
Each workshop proposal should clearly indicate its strength and usefulness and how it complements COMPSAC's conference theme: "Trustworthy Software Systems for the Digital Society". A COMPSAC workshop can be seen as complementary to the COMPSAC main conference, or providing better insight into the COMPSAC topics.

Workshop proposals shall include the following items:
  •  Workshop's title
  •  Workshop's organizer(s)' name, affiliation, and contact address.
  •  Workshop's goal, theme, and topics of interest / workshop scope.
  •  Workshop's PC (Program Committee) members: name and affiliation.
  •  Prospective invited speakers (optional)
  •  Expected number of workshop sessions
  •  Information on the previously organized Workshops (if any).

Please follow the example-proposal to create your own proposal, and send it to the COMPSAC 2012 workshop chairs no later than December 8th, 2011.

Workshop Ads and Paper Reviewing Process

Every submitted workshop paper will be reviewed by 3 reviewers assigned by the respective workshop chairs from the workshop's PC. The organizers of the accepted workshops are responsible for promoting and advertising their workshops, on lists, with proper reference to COMPSAC 2012.

Workshop Organizers Responsibility

Workshop organizers should organize their workshop under the chairmanship of COMPSAC workshop chairs. The responsibility of the workshop organizers is mainly to ensure that the accepted papers are of high quality, and to strive for an acceptance ratio of less than 70%.

We encourage workshop organizers to propose a workshop invited speaker also, to increase the workshop's appeal.

Handling of COMPSAC Workshop Papers

COMPSAC 2012 uses a web-based paper review system. Workshops will also have to use the same system for paper review. The COMPSAC workshop chairs will create a dedicated workshop review system, having the workshop organizers and respective PC members, as the review system's members.

Workshop papers are to be processed as follows:
  •  Workshop author(s) will submit papers to the corresponding workshop.
  •  Workshop organizers will inform COMPSAC Workshop Chairs with a list of submitted papers (i.e., paper title and author(s) name and e-mail).
  •  Workshop organizers will start the paper reviewing process by assigning papers to the respective PC. At least three reviewers should be assigned  to each submitted paper.
  •  Workshop organizers will provide a list of accepted and rejected papers  (i.e., paper title, author(s) name and e-mail, and a small justification  of why the paper has been accepted / rejected) to the COMPSAC workshop chairs. IEEE CS (Computer Society) Press will send the Author's Kit to authors, accordingly.
  •  Workshop authors will send their camera-ready papers to IEEE CS Press.
  •  Workshop organizers will send a WORKSHOP Program (i.e., timetable, session name, session chair, paper title and author(s) names) to COMPSAC workshop Chairs.
