Organizational Details

The organizers of successful workshops will be responsible for their own review process and publicity (e.g., website). They are required to cooperate closely with the Workshop Chairs and the ICDE 2020 local organizers to finalize all details mentioned above, provide input for publicity to the ICDE 2020 organizers, etc. In particular, local organizers may expect that all workshops adhere to a specific general timetable to facilitate catering.

Workshops will benefit from the registration process of ICDE 2020. If the organizers of a workshop choose to charge additional fees to cover meals, etc., they must inform the General Chairs of their intent and must manage the process on their own.

Workshop organizers must inform the Workshop Chairs of the numbers of submissions and acceptances as these numbers become available. Workshops with fewer than 15 expected registrants may be canceled at the discretion of the conference organizers. Only accepted workshops are official ICDE workshops and enjoy the support mentioned above. Workshop timeline (deadlines for submissions and review process): to be proposed by the workshop organizers in agreement with the ICDE 2020 Workshop Chairs. The deadline for the camera ready copy is February 28, 2020, for all workshops.


The proceedings of the workshops will be published jointly with the conference proceedings. All papers should have the same format as conference research papers.
