ICALP-LICS 2020 Call for Workshops

ICALP 2020 (http://econcs.pku.edu.cn/icalp2020/) and LICS 2020 
(https://lics.siglog.org/lics20/) will take place in co-location from 
8th till 12th of July 2020 in Beijing, China. The conferences will be 
preceded by two days of joint workshops, held on July 6th and 7th. We 
invite proposals of workshops affiliated with ICALP-LICS 2020 on all 
topics covered by ICALP and LICS, as well as other areas of theoretical 
computer science.

Proposals should be submitted no later than

   ***  November 30th, 2019 ***

by sending an email to frederic.blanqui at inria.fr. Due to limited space 
of the venue we might not be able to accommodate all the proposed 
workshops. You should expect notification on the acceptance of your 
proposal by mid December 2019.

A workshop proposal submission should consist of:

  - workshop's name and URL (if already available)

  - workshop's organizers together with their email addresses and web pages;

  - short description of the area covered by the workshop and the 
motivation behind it;

  - expected number of participants (if available, please include the 
data of previous years);

  - planned format of the event;

  - date preference (July 6th or 7th).

As for the format, a standard option is a one-day workshop consisting of 
invited talks by leading experts and of shorter contributed talks, 
either directly invited by the organizers or selected among submissions. 
Deviations from this standard are also warmly welcome, including a 
shorter or a longer time span than a full day, or other elements of the 
schedule like open problem sessions, discussion panels, or working sessions.

If you plan to have invited speakers, please specify their expected 
number and, if possible, tentative names. If you plan a call for papers 
or for contributed talks followed by a selection procedure, the 
submission date should be scheduled after ICALP 2020 and LICS 2020 
notification, while the notification should take place considerably 
before the early registration deadline. In your submission please 
include details, in particular the time schedule, of the planned 
procedure of selecting papers and/or contributed talks. If you plan to 
have published proceedings of your workshop, please provide the name of 
the publisher. Please be advised that ICALP-LICS 2020 is not able to 
provide any financial support for publishing workshop proceedings.

We expect the workshops to be financially independent. The expenses 
related to the participation of invited speakers, production of workshop 
materials, etc. should be covered from independent sources. On top of 
standard ICALP/LICS registration fee there will be a moderate 
registration fee for the workshops that will cover coffee breaks. This 
workshop fee will be waived for maximum two invited speakers for each 

Workshop selection committee:

     Naoki Kobayashi

     Michał Pilipczuk
     Zhilin Wu
