Responsibilities of Workshop Organizers

Workshop organizers are expected to organize and facilitate all proposed
workshop activities. We suggest the page limit for workshop papers to be
4–6 pages excluding references using the single-column ACM Master Article
Submission Template
<>, but it is
up to the organizers to make this decision. Due to the very tight schedule,
we unfortunately cannot include the contributions of workshop participants
into the official conference proceedings and the ACM Digital Library.

Workshop organizers will be asked to:


   Organize and manage the review of submitted workshop papers (e.g.
   through a reviewing system such as EasyChair)

   Set a workshop position paper submission deadline (on or before October
   2, 2020) and an author notification date (on or before October 19).

   We will provide workshop organizers a special code for early bird
   registration that they can give to authors in the acceptance notification.
