RDP 2011 Federated Conference on Rewriting, Deduction, and Programming

Sunday, May 29, 2011 to Friday, June 3, 2011
Novi Sad, Serbia

Call For Workshop Proposals

Sunday, May 29, 2011

RDP 2011 is a federated event comprising two major conferences:

Previous RDPs were held in 2003 in Valencia (Spain), 2004 in Aachen (Germany), 2005 in Nara (Japan), 2007 in Paris (France) and 2009 in Brasilia (Brasil). RDP has a tradition of federating every two years RTA and TLCA, and of hosting related workshops.

We solicit proposals for satellite workshops of RDP 2011 that are related in topics to one or both of the RDP conferences.

Workshops should have a length of 1 or 2 days (possibilities for longer workshops should be discussed with the organizers). It is tradition at RDP that attendance to workshops is open to participants of parallel events, similar to the way FLoC workshops are run. There will be one day (Sunday, May 29, 2011) reserved for workshops, however, it will also be possible to run workshops on the other days in parallel to one of the main conferences.

RDP will provide the possibility to print workshop proceedings, details of the procedure will be posted later by the local organizing committee. RDP will not be able to reimburse invited workshop speakers for travel or living expenses, though it may be possible to waive part of the registration fees for invited speakers. The priority of RDP will be to keep registration fees for the conferences and workshops low.

Please submit your workshop proposal by email to
rdp2011-workshop at uns.ac.rs

Proposals should be written in plain text. The proposal should cover the following topics:

  1. Name of workshop
  2. A statement of the topics and goals of the workshop
  3. Names and addresses of the organizers
  4. Pointers to descriptions of previous editions of the workshop, if any
  5. A description of the submission selection process
