EDOC 2008 Conference Program

Call for Workshop Proposals

EDOC 2008 Workshops

EDOC 2008 is inviting proposals for workshops to be held during the conference week.

Prospective workshop organizers are requested to follow the guidelines below in submitting a workshop proposal by the submission date, and are encouraged to contact the Workshop Chair should any questions arise.

Workshop goals and format

Workshops provide organizers and participants with an opportunity to exchange opinions, advance ideas, and discuss preliminary results on current topics related to enterprise computing, in a small and interactive atmosphere.

Workshops can choose to concentrate on in-depth research topics, be devoted to discuss best practices, applications and industrial issues, or a mixture of both.

Workshops may be either one or two days long. Prospective workshop organizers should clearly specify the desired length of their workshop.


Workshop proposals should be sent to the Workshop Chair before March 03 2008, and should include:

  • the workshop title,
  • the names and brief (200 word) biography for each organizer,
  • the proposed workshop duration (one or two days),
  • a summary of the workshop topics, goals and contents (approximately 1-2 pages, i.e., 500-1000 words),
  • a brief description of the audience and community to which the workshop is targeted, and
  • a tentative Call for Papers.

We assume that submission of a workshop proposal indicates that the workshop organizers are available to run the workshop, if accepted.

Review and Evaluation Criteria

All workshop proposals will be carefully reviewed, and acceptance will be based on:

  • the relevance of the workshop topics and contents with regard to the topics of the conference;
  • the timeliness and expected interest in the topic (i.e., the workshop might be of interest to a sufficiently large community within EDOC);
  • the workshop's potential to advance the state of research and/or practice in the topics of the workshop;
  • the organizers' ability to lead a successful workshop.

Important Dates

  • Workshop proposals due: 3 March 2008
  • Workshop acceptance notification: 10 March 2008


Accepted workshops must adhere to the common deadlines listed for submission of workshop papers, notification of acceptance of workshop papers, and preparation of the workshop proceedings:
  • Workshop web page due (including Call for Papers): 17 March 2008
  • Paper submission deadline: 13 June 2008
  • Paper acceptance notification: 18 July 2008
  • Camera ready of papers: 28 July 2008
  • Camera ready of Workshop Proceedings: 4 August 2008
  • Workshop days: 15-16 September 2008
Upon acceptance, workshop organizers are expected to:
  • Produce a Call for Papers, and to publish it through the most effective distribution channels. All workshops' Call for Papers should follow a common format, which will be provided in due course.
  • Produce a Web page with all the information relevant to the workshop (including the information from the Call for Papers, the paper submission guidelines and deadlines, the program committee, etc.).
  • Take care of the workshop's paper submission, evaluation and selection processes. Accepted workshop papers are expected to be included in the IEEE Digital Library (yet to be confirmed), and therefore they all should adhere to the IEEE Computer Society format.
  • Make sure that authors of accepted papers are aware that at least one of them should register for the conference in order to present their papers. (Please note that EDOC 2008 will not pay for any registration, travel, or other arrangements for workshop organizers or any of their invited guests. All participants, including workshop organizers, must register for the workshop.)
  • Produce the Workshop Proceedings, which will need to be made electronically available before the workshop so participants can download the papers.
