Call for workshops:

The PROPOR 2016 Organizing Committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference, which will take place in July 13-15, 2016, Tomar, Portugal. We solicit proposals on any topic of interest to the relevant community, not necessarily limited to the Portuguese language.

The goal of the workshops is to provide a forum for researchers to discuss more focused research questions and challenges in a very interactive atmosphere.

The organizers of approved workshops will announce the workshop and call for papers, manage submissions, conduct the reviewing process and decide upon the final workshop program. They will prepare the workshop proceedings to be distributed at the conference.

Important Dates:
  • October 16, 2015: Workshop proposals due (extended deadline)
  • October 21: Notification of decision (delayed for October 23)
  • October 27: Workshop web pages available and linked to the main site.
  • Workshop CFP published.
  • July 12 or 16, 2016: Workshops at PROPOR 2016
