We also seek for workshops which are focused to particular domains, such as healthcare, government, military, etc. and which report real-world experiences in production settings.

A workshop proposal should be no more than 5 pages and should include the workshop title, technical description of the topic and issues, the relevance of the workshop to the conference theme, the motivation of why the workshop is of interest at this time, the strategy for recruiting papers, brief bios of the organizers, potential program committee members, duration and history (if any) of the workshop.
