Call for Workshop Proposals

The organizers of the 32nd ACM International Conference on Supercomputing
(ICS'18) call for proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with
ICS'18 (in Beijing, China). Workshops should provide forums for discussion
among researchers and practitioners on focused topics or emerging research
areas relevant to the community of high-performance computing. Workshop
organizers may structure workshops as they see fit, including invited
talks, panel discussions, presentations of work in progress, fully
peer-reviewed papers, or some combination of the above. Workshops could be
scheduled for half a day or a full day on June 12th, 2018, depending on
interests, space constraints, and the organizer’s preference. Organizers
should design workshops for approximately 20-40 participants, to balance
the impact and effective discussion.

The deadline for submission of a proposal is November 1st, 2017 (*Extended
to November 15th, 2017*). We strongly encourage workshop organizers to
submit their proposals early so that there is enough time to organize the
workshop program before the conference. We also encourage proposals for new
workshops that have not been held before.


Workshop proposals should include the followings:

·       The name and the acronym of the workshop

·       A description (0.5-1 page) of the theme of the workshop

·       A description (one paragraph) on the relevance of the theme of the
workshop to ICS

·       A list of topics of interest

·       The names and affiliations of the workshop organizers, and if
applicable, of a significant portion of the program committee

·       A description of the expected structure of the workshop (papers,
invited talks, panel discussions, etc.)

·       Data about previous offerings of the workshop (if applicable),
including the attendance, the numbers of papers or presentations submitted
and accepted, and the links to the corresponding websites

·       A publicity plan for attracting submissions and attendees. Please
also include expected number of submissions, accepted papers, and attendees
that you anticipate for a successful workshop.
