Call for Workshop Proposals

The organizing committee of SRDS 2022 is welcoming workshop proposals until April 25, 2022.

The first day of the conference will be dedicated to workshops proposed by the scientific and technical community around distributed systems, dependability, security, performance, and other related topics. The purpose of workshops is to provide a forum for exchanging opinions, presenting ideas, and discussing preliminary results in an interactive atmosphere.

Workshop Chairs

For any questions regarding workshops, please email the workshop chairs.

Responsibilities and Logistics

Workshops may be half-day or full day events.

Workshop chairs are responsible for setting up an international technical program committee, independent of the one of the main conference. They may select a TPC chair(s) or chair the TPC themselves. Responsibilities of the workshop TPC chairs include preparing and spreading a call for contributions, attract high-quality submissions, set up the selection process assemble and run the workshop program.

SRDS 2022 will provide co-located workshops with the possibility of publishing their papers in a supplementary volume to the main conference proceedings (IEEE CPS, currently under discussion). This possibility would be open to workshops who implement a peer-review selection of papers of 4 pages or more in the same format as for the main conference.

Note that the publication of proceedings for the workshop would be a possibility and not a requirement: workshops without published proceedings, with only abstracts, with only invited speakers, or using a mix of these formats, are also warmly welcome.
