Call for Workshops
The purpose of the workshops is to provide a setting for participants to discuss scientific work, technical issues, exchange research ideas, and to demonstrate applications and software tools. The workshops may be driven by fundamental academic interests or by needs from specific current or emerging application domains. We encourage a diversity of workshops relating to Petri nets or other models of concurrency. Proceedings from the workshop will be published in the CEUR workshop proceedings series and selected best papers from the workshop will be published in a special volume of the TopNoC LNCS subseries.
All workshop proposals must be written in English.
Proposals for workshops should be no more than 3 pages in length and submitted to the workshop and tutorial (W&T) chairs before June 15, 2016 (see below).
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 theme that will be its focus.
– A brief description of why and to whom the workshop is of interest.
– The names and contact information (web page, email address) of the Program Committee (PC) chairs, i.e., the workshop organizers. Moreover, a tentative list of workshop PC members should be given.
We suggest one or two PC chairs and a number of PC members from different countries that reflects the expected number of submissions. Moreover, the following additional information is requested:
-A list of related workshops or similar events to be held in the same year or which has been held within the previous two years.
-If the workshop has taken place before:
–How often has the workshop taken place so far?
–Which conference(s) has the workshop been collocated with so far?
–Number of participants in the last instalment.
-A discussion of the proposed format and agenda.
-The proposed duration (half, one or two days).
-Procedures for selecting papers.
-Potential invited speakers.
-Expected audience and number of participants.
A description of the qualifications of the workshop organizers with respect to organizing this workshop (e.g., papers published in the proposed topic area, previous workshop organization, other relevant information).
Each workshop program committee (in particular the chairs) will be responsible for the following:
– Producing a web page and a “Call for Papers/Participation” for their workshop.
– Providing a brief description of the workshop for the Petri Nets conference web pages and program and providing a workshop web page the Petri Nets 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.
– Appointing session chairs.
The local organization of the Petri net conference will take care of the production of CEUR workshop proceedings. Workshop chairs are not allowed to submit papers to their workshops.
After the conference, we will invite a number of the best workshop papers to contribute to a Joint Post-proceedings, to be published in “Transactions on Petri Nets and Other Models of Concurrency” (ToPNoC), a subseries of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS). That is, a selection of papers from all workshops will be combined into a single volume. The revised papers will go through an additional round of reviewing. The W&T chairs of the conference will be responsible for liaison with the publisher, organising the additional round of reviewing and the final selection. The workshop chairs will play an important role in suggesting papers and the final selection.
