CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

Co-Chairs:

Reiner Wichert, Fraunhofer IGD, Germany

Jean Gelissen, Philips Research, the Netherlands

Kristof Van Laerhoven, TU Darmstadt, Germany

*Scope*

Workshops are an opportunity to meet in the context of the AmI-11 
conference and discuss a common theme and/or common topics of interest. 
In particular emerging and future areas in the field are subject to 
organize a workshop at AmI-11. The workshop should have the potential to 
move the field forward and suggest promising directions.

Interested workshop organizers are requested to submit a proposal to the 
conference. If the workshop is accepted the workshop is publicized as 
part of the conference programme and potential participants have to 
submit a position paper. It is our aim that refereed material from 
workshops will be bundled in separate proceedings by Springer Verlag 
(approval pending).

AmI-11 workshop proposals should fit into one of the following categories:

1. EU PROJECT WORKSHOPS intended for internal, restricted, or public 
exchange of research progress or proposals related to projects funded by 
the European Commission - typically in the context of FP7

2. FOCUSSED SCIENTIFIC WORKSHOPS emphasizing a relatively narrow topic 
related to the AmI-11 overall theme. The topic should be interesting and 
concise such as to attract a group of like-minded participants.

3. EARLY-WORK SCIENTIFIC WORKSHOPS soliciting well defended research 
project proposals, work-in-progress reports, and similar early papers of 
sufficient quality.

You should make the general goal of the workshop clear, topics to be 
discussed, a proposal for the schedule of the workshop, the type of 
workshop as either half-day or full-day, the type of participants you 
will expect to take part, means for marketing of the workshop, the 
procedures for handling the reviews as well as plans for using the 
outcome of the workshop. The submission should also include a 250 word 
Call for Participation to be used to promote the workshop.

Accepted workshop abstracts will be published in the Conference 
Proceedings (at least two pages long). After acceptance, a final, 
revised camera-ready version will be required in electronic form to go 
in the proceedings. Final camera-ready versions of accepted workshop 
proposals must be accompanied by a signed copyright form. After 
acceptance organizers should set up an external web page delivering all 
the necessary information for interested people. Workshops can be 
restricted to participation upon invitation only or they can be kept 
open. In any case, advance registration will be required in order to 
plan ahead for the required facilities. The criteria, reviewing and 
acceptance of each workshop papers is handled by their workshop organizers.

Only electronic submissions in PDF format are accepted; Workshop 
proposals should follow the Springer guidelines for Proceedings 
(http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-7-72376-0) and can be 
submitted using the Conference Review System at 
http://www.ami-11.org/submissions and must be submitted by the deadline 
indicated below.

Proposals for Scientific Workshops (scope 2+3 above) must include the 
following information:

1) Content of the Workshop: a) Title; b) Tentative Text of the Call for 
Papers; c) Abstract describing - as far as not yet covered d) the 
Rationale, tentative review/selection procedure and timeline, 
publication plans, expected number of participants, and further 
information considered relevant

2) For each of the (one through five) proposers: a) Name, Affiliation; 
b) Short Bio, including a description of the expertise in the topic(s) 
of the workshop;

3) Tentative Program Committee (Name+Affiliation of members)
