Call for Events
This call has expired.
The organizers of FedCSIS 2011 invite proposals for associated Events (conferences, symposia, workshops, special sessions). The Events can run over any span of time within the conference dates, i.e. from half-day to three days.
Event proposals should include the following information (within a maximum length of 2 pages):
- The nature of the Event.
- The title the Event, and a clear description of the topic including a brief justification.
- The complete contact information of the Event organizers, including a link to their personal websites, and an overview of previous experiences with organization of scientific events.
- Indication of the expected number of papers/attendees to attend the Event.
- Information of expected post-event publications, of extended and revised papers in high-quality journals, edited volumes, etc.
Event organizers should email their proposals (in a single pdf file) to FedCSIS Secretariat email@example.com
- Each Event is considered a satellite event of FedCSIS. All basic information about the Event, including its Call for Papers and a link to the FedCSIS-provided Paper Submission System, is going to be published in a unified form on the FedCSIS website.
- The Event’s chair(s) may publish more complete and up-to-date information on other websites, but all references to the event must mention its association with the FedCSIS.
- The Event’s chair(s) can, and indeed should, advertise their Event through their own channels and solicit submissions.
- The Event’s chair(s) manage the paper submission and reviewing processes according to the best practices and the process defined by the EasyChair conference management system. Each event will conduct submissions and reviewing as a track in the multi-track EasyChair instance made available to events by the FedCSIS organizers.
- Registration of participants, financial and local arrangements are managed by FedCSIS organizers according to the principles highlighted below.
- The paper submission formats are specified by FedCSIS. The total length of a paper should not exceed 8 pages and should be formatted according to an IEEE style template made available to the authors from the FedCSIS site. Only papers submitted personally by the author(s) onto the EasyChair can be subjected to review and potential acceptance. Each paper must receive at least two reviews prior to acceptance/rejection decision.
- All the due dates for paper submissions, author notifications, camera-ready submissions and registrations are the same for all FedCSIS Events. However, some deadlines may be extended based on justified requests by the Event’s char(s).
- If an Event succeeds to attract a pre-defined minimum of registered participants, then it will be partly funded by FedCSIS. The pre-defined minimum will be decided based on the FedCSIS financial plan and made known as early as possible. The funds can be used to sponsor traveling and accommodation expenses of the Event’s chair(s) and or keynote speakers. Some other use of funds is also possible, but has to be discussed with FedCSIS organizers.
- The Event’s chair(s) ought to prepare the final program in a publishable format according to the formatting guidelines provided by the FedCSIS organizers.
- The Event’s chair(s) need to coordinate the Event sessions and stimulate discussion.
