SOSP 2017 Call for Contributions


SOSP'17 Call for Workshops

Hosting a Workshop

SOSP 2017 will officially host workshops at the conference venue on Saturday, October 28th . The purpose of these workshops is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas and preliminary results of topics related to SOSP in an interactive environment. We invite proposals for “open” workshops with the intent to draw upon the collective experience, interests, and opinions of all SOSP attendees.

Submission Information

Proposals should include the following information:

  • Workshop name and a 150 to 200-word abstract describing the workshop, suitable for the conference web site.
  • Names and affiliations of main organizers and tentative composition of the committees (as complete as possible). Please note if committee members have already tentatively agreed or not.
  • If applicable, a description of past versions of the workshop, including dates, organizers, submission and acceptance counts, attendance, and information about which conference the workshop was co-located with.
  • Brief rationale for the workshop and for co-locating with SOSP.
  • A draft Call For Papers (CFP), as complete as possible.
  • The workshop deadlines (internal and external).
  • Workshop format, i.e., expected number of presented papers, invited talks, panels, demonstrations, number of days, etc.
