Call for Workshops and Tutorials
A plain-text ASCII version of the document is available. Please advertise this to any appropriate forums that have not already received this.
The PDCAT08 Organizing Committee invites workshop/tutorial proposals for PDCAT08 to be held in Dunedin, New Zealand, in December 2008.
Workshop/tutorial proposals are invited on specific aspects of parallel and distributed computing, particularly relating to the subject areas indicated by the topics below. We encourage workshops/tutorial driven by both academic and industrial interests. The format of the workshop/tutorials will be determined by the organizers.
Workshops can vary in length from a half day to a full day. Having more than one co-organizer for a workshop is strongly encouraged.
Workshop proceedings will be published as part of the PDCAT08 proceedings. So, it is very important that high quality workshops are accepted, and that workshop organisers observe strict quality strandards in the selection of papers for their events.
Workshops attendees should register for the main conference.
Important Dates and Proposal Submission
Workshop/tutorial proposals and any enquiries should be sent by e-mail to the Tutorial & Workshop chair, Laurent Lefevre (Laurent.Lefevre@ens-lyon.fr).

Proposals should be no more than 2 pages in length. They should contain the following information:
- Title and brief technical description of the workshop/tutorial, specifying the goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.
- A brief description of why and to whom the workshop/tutorial is of interest.
- A list of related workshops/tutorials or similar events held in the last 3 years, or to be held in 2008.
- The names and contact information (web page, email address) of the organisers.
- A description of the qualifications of the organisers (e.g., papers published in the proposed topic area, previous workshop/tutorial organization, other relevant information).
Responsibilities of workshop organisers
Each workshop organizing committee will be responsible for the following:
- Producing a web page and a "Call for Papers/Participation" for their workshop. The URL should be sent to the workshop chair.
- It should mention that at least one author of each accepted submission must attend the workshop and that all workshop participants must pay the PDCAT08 conference registration fee.
- It should clearly describe the process by which the Organizing Committee will select the submissions.
- Ensure that all workshop papers are a maximum of 6 pages in length (in IEEE format).
- Provide a brief description of the workshop for the conference web page and program.
- The publication of proceedings will be by the IEEE alongside the conference proceedings (in many cases this is in the same volume as the main conference). The acceptance notification (by workshop organisers) therefore should be the same as "conference paper acceptance" notification (i.e. the dates should be the same). All other details can be up to workshop organisers to set.
- Advertising the workshop beyond the conference web page.
- Producing a camera-ready version of the workshop proceedings.
- Important matter: The PDCAT08 Organizing Committee may decide, based on the number and quality of submissions, to cancel or merge workshops before the conference. So we encourage workshop organisers to attract a large community.
The PDCAT08 Organizing Committee will be responsible for the following:
- Providing a link to a workshop's local page.
- Providing logistics support and a meeting place for the workshop.
- In conjunction with the organizers, determining the workshop date and time.
- Providing copies of the workshop proceedings to attendees.
