Workshop  Call

Workshop Call for Proposals

The ICCBR-11 Program Committee invites proposals for full day or half day workshops for the Workshop Program of the 19th International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning (http://www.iccbr.org/iccbr11).

ICCBR-11 workshops will provide an informal setting in which participants will have the opportunity to meet and discuss topics with a selected CBR focus in an environment that encourages the exchange of ideas.

The format of each workshop will be determined by each workshop organizing committee. To stimulate interaction and a broad exchange of ideas, ample time should be allotted in each workshop for general discussion.

Workshop Proposal Content

 Proposals should be from two to four pages in length and contain the following information:

  • Proposed title of the workshop.
  • A brief technical description of the workshop, specifying the workshop goals and the technical issues that will be its focus.
  • A brief discussion of why the workshop is of interest.
  • A preliminary workshop agenda and schedule for the workshop.  This should include a brief description of how the organizers intend to conduct the workshop (e.g., paper presentations, invited talks, panel discussions, system demonstrations, contests, or other types of communication).
  • A list of potential participants or groups.  If similar workshops were held in the past, include information on received submissions and attendance.
  • The intended means of advertising the workshop.
  • Contact information, including the names, postal addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of the proposed workshop organizing committee, identifying the main point of contact.  This committee should consist of three or four people knowledgeable in the technical issues to be addressed. Ideally, these people should not be from the same institution.
  • An indication as to whether the workshop should be considered for a half day or full day meeting.
  • A draft call for papers.

 ICCBR-11 reserves the right to cancel any workshop if deadlines are missed, if too few submissions are received, or if too few attendees register for the workshop to support the costs of holding it.  In special cases, the
