Call for Workshops

Submission of workshop proposals is closed.

ECOOP 2012 will host an exciting array of workshops that address a variety of topics in object-oriented technology. A workshop is a forum for exchanging ideas and theories that are still in an evolutionary stage. Typically, a workshop will either address a focused topic in depth or explore connections between object-oriented technologies and other areas of interest. ECOOP 2012 invites proposals for workshops lasting one or two days.

ECOOP 2012 workshops will be held 11–13 June, 2012.


A workshop proposal should include the following information:

  • Name of the workshop
  • Duration of the workshop (half-day, full-day, multi-day)
  • An abstract: 150-200 words describing the workshop, suitable for the ECOOP Web site
  • A preliminary Call For Workshop Papers describing the workshop's focus and its main topics
  • A summary of the workshop format: e.g., refereed papers, and/or short papers, and/or invited talks, and/or problem solving, and/or brainstorming sessions. How will papers or other submissions be reviewed?
  • A description of how the workshop papers and results will be published or otherwise disseminated (see the "Dissemination of Workshop Results" section below)
  • References to previous editions of the workshop (if any) including information about the number of participants
  • About each organizer:
    • Name, affiliation, and contact information
    • Primary contact: identify one organizer as the primary contact
    • A brief biography (up to 200 words), focusing on the organizer's expertise in the field and experience as a workshop organizer
  • Any special requirements that the workshop may have

Proposal Submission and Review

Workshop proposals should be submitted by email to the ECOOP 2012 workshop organizers,
Adam Welc and Patrick Eugster, at

  1. Proposals will be reviewed by the ECOOP 2012 workshop organizers as they arrive.
  2. Notification for a given proposal will be sent two weeks after its submission.
  3. Therefore, proposal acceptance will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
  4. The number of accepted proposals will be limited by the availability of the conference rooms.

Each proposal will be evaluated according to the value and relevance of its workshop topic, the expertise and experience of the workshop organizers, and the potential of the proposed workshop to attract participants and generate useful results.

Dissemination of Workshop Results

A proposal should clearly state how the results of the workshop, that is the papers and other outcomes, will be made available to participants and others, both before and after the workshop event. The ECOOP 2012 workshop organizers will provide guidance to the organizers of accepted workshops that wish to publish proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.
