  • Paper notification: February 6, 2016
  • Camera-ready copy: February 13, 2016

(Note: Some workshops use different dates, or require abstract submission in advance. Please check each workshop’s web page for detailed submission instructions.)

Call for Workshop Proposals

Workshops are a good venue for students to get initial feedback on their first research endeavors, and for more experienced researchers to brainstorm with their peers about emerging topics in their field. Workshops are incubators for research. In contrast to conference technical tracks, where presentations dominate Q&A and interaction, workshops have the potential to foster spontaneous in-depth discussions of emerging research topics in a focused community.

We hereby solicit proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main Modularity’16 conference. We encourage proposals on conference-related topics that are novel or of emerging importance. We stress the importance of active and creative workshops that promise to form a collaborative environment of interest to both practitioners and researchers. Workshops can be full or half day, and devoted to a specific topic of interest in the modularity domain or in its neighborhood. Workshops should have a focused topic, provide opportunity for lively discussion, and attract enthusiastic participants.

Workshop proposals will be judged on originality, relevance to Modularity’16, expected level of interest in the topic, and the organizers ability to lead a successful workshop.

Important Dates

  • Workshop proposal submission deadline: October 30, 2015

  • Notification: within two weeks after submission

Workshop Proceedings

The workshop papers will be published in both the electronic conference proceedings and in the ACM Digital Library. The inclusion of a workshop’s proceedings in the digital library is optional and is at the discretion of each workshop’s organizers. However, for consistency we suggest each workshop request papers to be submitted in ACM formatting (sigplanconf style, 9pt font size - The deadlines for publication and use the following dates for submissions to meet ACM’s publication deadlines:

  • Workshop Paper submission deadline: January 15, 2016

  • Workshop Paper notification date: February 6, 2016

  • Workshop Paper camera-ready deadline: February 13, 2016

Note that the above requirements are for the actual workshop papers that are to be published by ACM not the workshop proposals, and such dates are still temporary. Workshop proposals should mention these paper formatting requirements in the sample Call for Papers, and have compatible deadlines.

Submission Guidelines for Workshop Proposals

A workshop proposal must be authored by at least two organizers, preferably from different institutions, and should contain a draft text of the call-for-papers/presentations in ASCII text or PDF format.

It must be sent via email to the Workshops Co-Chairs at

The organizers of an accepted workshop will be required to create and maintain a Web site in a timely manner to serve as a workshop information center and to provide a repository for documenting pre- and post-workshop activities. Recommended paper submission deadline and notification deadlines will be notified here when available.
