Workshops are to be submitted via EasyChair (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ace2019).
Proposals for workshops should be 1-2 pages long. Within the page limit, the submission should include:
- a summary of the proposed project with a description that would be sufficient for potential participants to decide if the workshop was of interest to them;
- a brief biography of the workshop facilitators;
- a description of the expected outcomes of the workshop;
- an estimate of the time required to run the workshop (half-day, full-day, or other); and,
- any lower and/or upper limits on the number of participants for the workshop to be viable.
Note that workshop proposals do not have to use standard ACM templates – text should simply be formatted to ensure it is readable for the program chairs. However, it must be presented as a pdf, because that’s what EasyChair will be expecting. The workshop proposals should not be anonymised as they will be reviewed by the program chairs.
Stop press, 7 September 2018: our EasyChair licence permits us only one submission deadline, and that was set to 2 September for abstracts with updating possible to 9 September. Therefore it is not now possible to initiate a submission for a workshop. Authors wishing to submit a workshop proposal should send the chairs (firstname.lastname@example.org) the title of the workshop and the name, email address, and affiliation of the lead author. The chairs will then add the ‘abstract’ for the proposal, and the lead author will then be able to access it, amend the details, and submit the required pdf.
