Eurosys pictures are now available!
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.
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.
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.
