Call for worshops

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the EuroSys’16 conference. The purpose of workshops is to provide a forum for exchanging opinions, presenting ideas, and discussing preliminary results in an interactive atmosphere.

Workshop Strategy

EuroSys Workshops have been successful in enabling the early presentation and discussion of ongoing systems work, establishing bridges with other communities and enlarging the event attendances. For EuroSys 2016 workshops, we aim to continue this tradition by accepting a limited number of well-focused workshops. In particular, we will give preference to workshops focusing on cutting-edge topics and characterized by discussions and interactions among attendees as opposed to mini-conference-like formats. While no specific paper length is enforced and traditional 5/6-page papers are welcome, we encourage workshop chairs to also consider presentations based on 1-page abstract proposals and short talks to increase participation and discussion during the workshop. Joint sessions among workshops will also be encouraged when topic and community sizes thus justify.


Proposals should include:
  • The workshop name and a 150–200 word abstract describing the workshop, suitable for presentation in the conference web site
  • A. short summary of:
    1. the topic,
    2. scope,
    3. significance and potential of the workshop, and including
    4. a discussion on the relevance to EuroSys topics
    5. short report on the workshop and publication format (keynotes, sessions, paper publication, abstract-only presentations) and the outcomes of past iterations of the workshop (submissions, attendance,…) if any
    6. quick assessment on possible alignment, overlap and synergies with previous iterations of other EuroSys workshops)
  • B. Information about the procedure for selecting papers, intended publication format (papers, abstracts, …); plans for dissemination (for example, special issues of journals, or position statements distributed to the participants), the expected number of participants, and the planned workshop format.
  • C. A brief CV of each of the organizers including contact addresses and an identification of a single primary contact.

The definite dates for workshop submissions and camera-ready deadlines are yet to be set. However, we expect that EuroSys paper notifications will be sent out by the end of January 2016, thus the workshop submission deadlines should be after that. Workshop notifications should be sent out by the end of February 2016, so that authors can benefit from the early registration rate. Furthermore, camera-ready copies of the papers should also be submitted by the end of 2016, in order to include them in the electronic version of the proceedings. We will provide the final dates as soon as they become available.

All proposals will be judged on their merits and the best proposals will be accepted. Specifically, workshops that have been organized at previous iterations of Eurosys are not automatically accepted this year. For instance, we will take into account the success of previous events (in terms of attendance, submissions, etc.) in our deliberations.


The EuroSys organization provides:

  • A link on the EuroSys Web site
  • Management of registration for participants
  • Setup of meeting space and related equipment
  • Coffee-breaks and workshop lunch arrangements

For workshops interested in publishing their proceedings, the EuroSys organization will provide the following support. Note that workshop proceedings will not be included in the same volume as the EuroSys conference proceedings.

  • Collect camera-ready versions of the papers and their copyright forms
  • Provide support for publishing on the on-site CD
  • Provide support to obtain an ISBN number
  • Publish papers in ACM digital library

The main responsibility of organizing a workshop goes to the chairperson(s) of the workshop. The workshop organization must take care of:

  • Coordinating deadlines and acceptance notifications for workshop papers with the EuroSys Workshop co-chairs
  • Workshop publicity, call for papers, and submission and review process
  • Providing a brief description of the workshop for inclusion on the EuroSys Web page
  • Scheduling workshop activities in collaboration with the EuroSys local organizers
