Event and publishing
Planned duration of the workshop is one day. The workshop would ideally include a keynote talk, research paper presentations, position statement presentations, and time for discussion amongst attendees. Workshop participants will be asked to read the papers before the workshop and prepare a list of questions to ask at the workshop, in order to achieve lively interactions. After each presentation, enough time will be allotted for discussion. In addition, the last afternoon session will be reserved for summary discussion of issues identified by the participants during the presentations. The workshop will close with a wrap-up discussion that will formulate the workshop’s conclusions, identify open issues, and outline future directions of work.
All submissions will be formally evaluated by three reviewers; different review criteria will be used for research/technical submissions versus position statements. The former will be reviewed using normal scientific criteria (novelty, alignment with workshop call, evaluation, ability to generate discussion). The latter will be evaluated in terms of likelihood of sparking heated debate/discussion at the workshop.
All contributions must be submitted in Springer’s LNCS format.
- Research/technical papers should not exceed 10 pages, including all text, references, appendices and figures.
- Position statements should not exceed 5 pages.
Paper submissions will be made electronically via the ECMFA workshop submission web page, using the Easychair service.
All submissions must be original work and must not have been previously published, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. At least one author of each accepted paper should register for the event and participate fully in the workshop.
Publication of Accepted Papers
Accepted papers will be part of the ECMFA’12 general workshop publication plans, and will also be published as CEUR proceedings. Extended versions of the highest quality submissions will be advocated for inclusion in a special issue of the Journal of Object Technology (JOT).
