Call for Workshop Proposals

The fifth Federated Logic Conference (FLoC'10), will be 9-21 July, 2010 hosted by the University of Edinburgh. The following seven conferences will participate in FLoC

The organizers have made arrangements to facilitate the running of pre-, post-, and mid-FLoC workshops. Each workshop will have its own registration, with uniform FLoC workshop fees. It is not necessary to register for FLoC in order to attend workshops. Meeting rooms and accommodations will be reserved by the university in the center of Edinburgh.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for workshops on topics relating logic, broadly understood, applied to computer science. Each workshop proposal must indicate one sponsoring conference among the participating conferences. (It is suggested that prospective workshop organizers contact the relevant conference Workshop Chair before submitting a proposal.) Workshops will have to be financially self-supporting, unless the sponsoring conference accepts financial responsibility. The FLoC Organizing Committee will determine the final list of accepted workshops based on the recommendations from the Workshop Chairs of the sponsoring conferences and subject to the availability of space and facilities.

Proposals should consist of two parts. First, a short scientific justification of the proposed topic, its significance, and the particular benefits of the workshop to the community, as well as a list of previous or related workshops (if relevant). A second, organizational part should include:

Workshops are strongly encouraged to find external financial support. This will be wholly their responsibility. Modest funding, based upon numbers of registrants, minus FLoC local expenses, will be made available to each workshop.

Proposals are due by September 1, 2009. Organizers will be notified by October 15, 2009. Proposals should be submitted electronically to EasyChair (submission opens on June 18). Clearly indicate at the top of the proposal the relevant conference.
