Call for Events for <Programming> 2021

<Programming> 2021 : The Art, Science, and Engineering of Programming

March 22-26, 2021, Online, United Kingdom


To build a community and to foster an environment where participants can
exchange ideas and experiences related to practical software
development, ‹Programming› will host a number of workshops.

As <Programming> is online this year, the main goal of workshops is
to promote social gathering and lively discussions amongst participants.
This edition’s workshops will replace the social experience of a physical
event and as such, their topics and organization may deviate from their
physical counterparts. So they should be the main events in the conference week.

A workshop can be intended as a collaborative forum to exchange recent
and/or preliminary results, to conduct intensive discussions on a particular
topic, or to coordinate efforts between representatives of a technical
community. They can also be regarded as a forum for lively discussion of
innovative ideas, progress, or practical experience on programming and
applied software development in general for specific aspects, specific
problems, or domain-specific needs.

This year, we would like to encourage organizers to be creative and experiment
with all kinds of events including hallways discussions, academic parties
besides the more traditional workshops. Possible types of workshops include
a meeting like a Dagstuhl Seminar or Shonan meeting, a gathering for an
international research project, a tool demo/tutorial, hands-on workshops
in which participants experience one or several aspects of practical
software development, social gathering around a particular topic and so on.
Open meetings are preferable but closed ones could be accepted. We are flexible
and welcome innovative social gatherings; if you have any ideas or questions,
please contact the workshops co-chairs.

The duration of workshops is in general one day, but we encourage the
submission of half-day workshop proposals on focused topics as well.
If desired, the workshop proceedings can be published in the post-conference
Companion Proceedings, in the ACM Digital Library.

### Submission Deadlines

Please submit your workshop proposal electronically via the submission system:
Please adhere to the workshop proposal guidelines given below and
provide all requested information about the proposed workshop.

Please keep it brief and use the provided form. The intention is not

### Workshop Proposal Guidelines

proposal, or CFP.
The submission system has a form that includes an abstract (for the

same information, duplication is not necessary for such cases.

    - Relevance (with respect to the topics of the <Programming> conference)
2(*). Who organizes the workshop?
    - Organizers and primary contact (name / affiliation / email)
    - Brief details on the organizers (previous workshop organizing
experience, etc.)
    - Data on potential previous iterations of the workshop

educated guess)
        - What kind of software do you expect to use to run the

### Notes on Companion Proceedings

Workshops that wish to have their proceedings published in the ACM DL
will have the opportunity to have post proceedings. However, chairs
will be responsible for making sure that camera ready deadlines are
respected so that final copies and metadata are collected on time. The
deadlines mentioned above are **strict**. Please consider them
carefully when determining your deadlines for the workshop.
