Call for Workshops

PODC 2013
The 32nd Annual ACM SIGACT-SIGOPS Symposium on
Principles of Distributed Computing
Montreal, Canada, July 22-24, 2013

The 32nd Annual ACM SIGACT-SIGOPS Symposium on Principles of Distributed Computing (PODC 2013), which will be held in Montreal, Canada on July 22-24, 2013, invites proposals for up to 2 day workshops that are closely related to the scope of the conference, i.e. on topics related to the theory, design, analysis, implementation, or applications of distributed systems and networks. Workshops will be held in conjunction with PODC (and SPAA which is co-located this year) on the days immediately preceding (or following) the conference program. Interested members of the community are invited to send proposals for workshops by email to the general chair (faturu AT csd DOT uoc DOT gr).

The following are required in a workshop proposal:

  • Title of the workshop.
  • An abstract describing the main focus of the workshop and why it would be of interest to the PODC community.
  • Names and contact information of the organizers.
  • Estimated number of submitted and accepted papers, duration of the workshop, and a brief description of the review process.

Although PODC will provide organizational and administrative support for the workshops, the workshops must bear their own expenses (e.g., those associated with the meeting rooms and catering). The budget of PODC and the workshops, in principle, could be integrated, but the details will need to be worked out. The proposals should be submitted to the general chair as soon as possible, but no later than November 30, 2012. Notification of acceptance will be sent shortly after the deadline.

Contact: Panagiota Fatourou (general chair), e-mail: faturu AT csd DOT uoc DOT gr.
