participants with an opportunity for an in-depth discussion on a

the input from workshop presenters. The workshop notes should be made

Half-day workshops are about 3 hours long (not including breaks). Full

Each workshop proposal should contain all the information that the
workshop chairs and the program committee need to judge the importance
and quality of the workshop and the interest in the proposed
topic. Each workshop may have one or more designated organizers and,
possibly, a workshop program committee. Workshop organizers need to
