                   First Call for Workshop Proposals

                             DisCoTec 2014

               9th International Federated Conference on
                    Distributed Computing Techniques


                     Berlin, Germany, June 3-6 2014


DisCoTec 2014 invites proposals for one-day workshops to be part of
the joint event. DisCoTec 2014 hosts conferences in the area of
coordination languages, distributed systems and formal methods for
distributed systems, ranging from practice to theory. We invite
workshops in these areas to provide a forum for presentations of
preliminary research results and ongoing work as well as presentations
of research work to a focused audience. DisCoTec workshops provide a
vivid and open forum for discussions.

One-day workshops will be held in conjunction with the main events.
Prospective workshop organizers are requested to follow the guidelines
below and are encouraged to contact the workshops chair (Kirstin
Peters) if any questions arise.

* Proposal Submission Guidelines *

Workshop proposals must be written in English, not exceed 5 pages with

Proposals should include the following information:
   * The title, theme, and goals of the workshop.
   * The targeted audience and the expected number of participants. We
     prefer that workshops remain open to participation from any members
     of the community, but by-invitation-only workshops will also be
     considered. Please explicitly state your preference.
   * The publicity strategy that will be used by the workshop organizers
     to promote the workshop.
   * The participant solicitation and selection process.
   * Publication plan. Each workshop is responsible for managing its own
     publication (e.g., pre- and/or post- proceedings), if any is desired.
   * Approximate budget proposal (see Budget section below for details).
   * A preliminary version of the call for papers, which must include
     important dates (e.g. submission, notification, and camera-ready
   * The equipment and any other resource necessary for the organization
     of the workshop; and whether a poster session is planned.
   * A brief description of the organizer's background, including relevant
     past experience on organizing workshops and contact information.

* Review Process *

Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the following committee:
   * Uwe Nestmann, TU Berlin, Germany (general chair)
   * Kirstin Peters, TU Berlin, Germany (workshops chair)
   * Margit Russ, TU Berlin, Germany (organization chair)

Acceptance is based on an evaluation of the workshop's potential for
generating useful results, the timeliness and expected interest in the
topics, the organizer's ability to lead a successful workshop, and
potential for attracting sufficient number of participants.

* Workshop Publicity *

Workshop publicity is responsibility of the workshop organizers. In
particular they are in charge of
    1. Providing a workshop description (200 words) for inclusion on
       the DisCoTec website.
    2. Hosting and maintaining web pages either on the DisCoTec
       website or linked from it.
    3. Editing workshop proceedings, if any.
    4. Publicising the event.

* Budget *

DisCoTec will provide registration and organizational support for the
workshops. Registration fees must be paid for all participants,
including organizers and invited guests.

To cover lunches, coffee breaks and basic organizational expenses,
all workshops will be required to charge a minimum participation fee
(the precise amount is still to be determined). Each workshop may
increase this fee to cover additional expenses such as publication
charges, student scholarships, costs for invited speakers, etc. All
fees will be collected by the DisCoTec organizers as part of the
registration and will be used to cover the expenses of each
workshop as agreed with the workshop organizers.
