The call for workshop proposals is now closed.

The following workshops have been accepted for collocation with ASE 2013.

Call for Papers — Workshop Proposals

A workshop co-located with the ASE 2013 conference should provide an opportunity for exchanging views, advancing ideas, and discussing preliminary results on topics related to Automated Software Engineering. Workshops may also serve as platforms to nurture new scientific communities. Workshops should not be seen as an alternative forum for presenting full research papers. The workshops co-located with the conference will be organized before the main conference (Monday, Tuesday). The organizers will decide the exact day after the proposals have been reviewed and accepted. A workshop may last one or two days.

Proposals for organizing workshops should be written in English, limited to 5 pages (in IEEE format), and submitted in PDF to both workshop co-chairs Marcelo d’Amorim and David Lo by E-mail. Workshop proposals should include the following information:

  • Theme and goals of the workshop including its relevance to the field of Automated Software Engineering
  • Targeted audience and the expected number of participants (minimum and maximum)
  • Workshop format (e.g., paper presentations, breakout sessions, panel-like discussions, combination of formats)
  • The equipment, room capacity, and any other resource necessary for the organization of the workshop
  • Participant solicitation and selection process
  • Publicity strategy that will be used by the workshop organizers to promote the workshop
  • Brief description of the organizer’s background, including relevant past experience on organizing workshops and contact information
  • Initial version of the call for papers that the workshop organizers intend to use
  • Preferences for workshop dates, duration (1 or 2 days), and any other scheduling constraints

Note that the workshop co-chairs will consider the preference of workshop dates specified by the organizers, but the acceptance of a workshop proposal does not guarantee adherence to the requested date/time. The workshop co-chairs will assume that workshop proposers will be able to run a workshop on the dates that ASE 2013 has reserved for workshops.

Review Process

Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the ASE 2013 tutorials and workshop cochairs. Acceptance will be based on an evaluation of the workshop’s potential for generating useful results, the timeliness and expected interest in the topic, the organizer’s ability to lead a successful workshop, and the potential for attracting a sufficient number of participants. Accepted workshops must adhere to the common deadlines listed below for submissions of papers, acceptance of papers, and preparation of proceedings.
