Guidelines for Workshop Proposals

Workshops provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to meet and discuss focused issues in an atmosphere that fosters interaction, exchange, and problem solving.

Workshops also provide the opportunity for representatives of a technical community to coordinate efforts and establish collective plans of action.

All topics related to object-oriented technology are potential candidates for workshops.
More specifically, workshops typically fall into the following categories :

Workshop topics are by no means limited to the examples mentioned above.
However, in each case the proposed area is supposed to have enough impetus to yield new results which can be considered important and worth more detailed investigation.

What should a proposal look like?

Workshop proposals should be submitted by the workshop proposal form or sent in ASCII or HTML format to the workshopchair, and they should consist of four pages/parts :

Cover Page


Call for Papers


If a workshop is accepted, the organizers will be requested to prepare a WWW page that will contain the latest information about the workshop. The web pages of each workshop will be linked to the ECOOP 2001 workshop web site.

Workshop Reader

For already four consecutive years, an ECOOP Workshop Reader has been published. This Workshop Reader collects reports from the various workshops, and as such provides an excellent snapshot of the trends in the community. We will do our best to contact editors for publishing the 6th ECOOP 2001 Reader. Workshop proposers should be prepared to write a summary report, and organize a selection and review procedure for the papers submitted to the workshop.
