Proposal Submission

Workshop proposals should be submitted by email to the ECOOP 2016 workshop organizers, Francesco Logozzo ( and Paley Li (


Each workshop will have to pay attention to the following estimated timing constraints: the workshop’s web page should be up two weeks after notification of acceptance, the Call for Papers should be public by February 26th, the deadline for submission April 15th, and notification May 13th.


  • Proposals will be reviewed by the ECOOP 2016 workshop organizers once submission has closed.

  • Notification will be sent one week after submission has closed.

  • Each proposal will be evaluated according to the value and relevance of its workshop topic, the expertise and experience of the workshop organizers, and the potential of the proposed workshop to attract participants and generate useful results.

  • The number of accepted proposals will be limited by the availability of the conference rooms.

Special Points

We ask you to set up your PC chair and your web page as soon as possible. When building your PC, please consider that it is important that PC members attend the workshop to have lively discussions. It is motivating for workshop participants to meet experts in the field.


A proposal should clearly state how the results of the workshop–the papers and other outcomes–will be made available to participants and others, both before and after the workshop event. Guidance will be provided to organizers who wish to publish their proceedings with Dagstuhl LIPIcs.
