Proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag
Ayia Napa, Cyprus, 31 Oct - 4 Nov 2005

The OTM 2005 Federated Conferences will be held in Ayia Napa,
Cyprus, 31 Oct - 4 Nov 2005.

Proposals for workshops are solicited for affiliation with
OTM 2005. The main goal of the OTM 2005 workshops is to
stimulate and facilitate an active exchange, interaction
and comparison of approaches, methods, and ideas in several
domains.Workshops on new emerging topics or specific relevant
aspects of consolidated ones are particularly encouraged.

The format of each workshop is to be determined by the organiser's,
but it will likely follow that of the workshops held in the previous
editions. Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit workshop
proposals to the OTM 2005 Workshop Chair, Pilar Herrero
([log in to unmask]),
no later than Friday, February 11, 2005. Submission should be made by e-mail
(ASCII/PS/PDF/DOC format are accepted) using "OTM Workshop Proposal
as the email subject.

In order to make it easier to evaluate your proposal, it would be greatly
appreciated if in crafting your proposal you could include the following

* A brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the
   workshop goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.

* A brief discussion of why and to whom the workshop is of interest.

* A list of related workshops held within the last two years, if any,
   and their relation to the proposed workshop.

* If applicable, detailed information about previous editions of
   the same workshop (e.g., number of submissions, number of attendees).

* A preliminary call for participation/papers.

* The names, postal addresses, phone numbers, and email addresses of
   the proposed workshop organizing committee.

* The name of the primary contact for the organizing committee;
   an email address of this person should be given.

* A description of the qualifications of the individual committee
   members with respect to organizing scientific events, including a
   list of workshops previously arranged by any members of the proposed
   organizing committee, if any.

* The Advertising procedure: How do the committee members plan
   to advertise their workshop

* A brief description of  how the proposed workshop could complement
   the three main conferences scopes.

The selection of the workshops to be included in the final OTM 2005
program will be based upon a number of factors, including:
the scientific/technical interest of the topics, the quality of the
proposal, the need to avoid strictly overlapping workshops, and the
unavoidable need to limit the overall number of selected workshops.

Workshop organizers will be responsible for the following:

  * Making a Web site for the workshop to be located in the
    main web site
    (All the conferences and workshops MUST be located in this
    main web site)

  * Advertising the workshop and issuing a call for participation/papers.

  * Collecting submissions, notifying acceptances in due time, and
    ensuring a transparent and fair selection process. All workshop
    organizers commit themselves to adopt the same deadlines for
    submissions and notifications of acceptance.

  * Ensuring that the workshop organizers and the participants get
    registered to the workshop and are invited to register to the main

At least one PC co-chair per OTM Workshop MUST be registered
and present for the whole event.

OTM'05  reserves the right to cancel any workshop if the above
responsibilities are not fulfilled or if too few attendees register
for the workshop.
