Call for Workshop Proposals

You are hereby cordially invited to submit Proposals for Workshops and thus become a part of EDBT 2006. The topics of these co-located workshops should be related to the EDBT conference topics of interest (for a non-exhaustive list, please see the EDBT 2006 CfP at http://www.edbt2006.de/call_for_papers.htm).

Please submit your proposals (in plain text or PDF) via e-mail to the Workshop Chair Torsten Grust, Technical University of Munich (grust@in.tum.de), by June 24, 2005. Advance notices welcome.

As a potential workshop organizer, please consider the following points while you prepare your proposal:

  • Workshops will share the attractive location, the Munich House of Artists near the Munich city center ``Stachus'', with the EDBT conference (http://www.kuenstlerhaus-muc.de).
  • EDBT workshops will run as satellite events, either directly before or after the core conference. Pre-conference workshops (1/2 or 1 days) will take place on Sunday, March 26, 2006. Post-conference workshops (1/2 up to 2 days) will be scheduled on Thursday and Friday, March 30-31, 2006.
  • Workshop attendees are not required but are, of course, encouraged to register for the core EDBT conference.
  • Workshops will benefit from the local EDBT 2006 organizational infrastructure and receive administrative support (registration, badges, refreshments, hotel booking, etc.). A fixed amount per workshop attendee and day will be charged for these services. Otherwise, you may impose workshop fees as you see fit.
  • Your proposal should contain the following pertinent information:
    • Names, affiliations, and e-mail addresses of the workshop organizers. Please mark the primary contact person.
    • Preferred date and workshop duration (see above) and an estimation of the number of expected participants.
    • A brief description of the workshop, including the workshop's name and topic, and a short summary of the technical issues in the focus of the workshop. A sketch of the workshop's Call for Papers (including dates) will be helpful.
    • Information on the workshop program committee (as far as available to you then) and a note on your plans regarding workshop proceedings publication.
    • Short information on previous editions of the workshop series (if applicable).
  • Based on the input you provide, the decision about the acceptance or rejection of your proposal as a co-located workshop will be made jointly by the EDBT 2006 General, Program, and Workshop Chairs. Notifications will be sent out no later than July 8, 2005.
  • Finally, we expect you to work with the EDBT 2006 local organizers on the mentioned details and publicity aspects of your accepted workshop.
