Workshop proposal shall be submitted to workshop co-chairs at wc@icsoc.org


Workshop organizers will be responsible for the following:

  • Constituting the workshop program committee
  • Advertising the workshop
  • Managing the paper review and selection process
  • Ensuring that at least one author of each accepted paper attends to present the paper (this may require announcing regulations that stipulate this as a prerequisite for the publication of the paper in the workshop proceedings.)
  • Ensuring that the workshop delivers useful scholarly/research value via active discussion/debate.

Workshops may be full-day or half-day.

It is likely that the proceedings of accepted workshops will be jointly produced as a Springer volume (in the form of a post-proceedings), but a formal proposal to Springer will only be made after the accepted workshops and their program committees are finalized.

Working notes of the workshops (including papers to be eventually published in the joint workshop volume) will be locally printed for distribution on the workshop day.

Workshop proposals should include the following elements:

  • Workshop title

  • Proposed duration of the workshop (full-day or half-day)
