International Symposium on DIStributed Computing (DISC) 2022

Call for Workshops

DISC 2022 will be held this year in Augusta, Georgia, USA between the 24th to the 28th of October (http://www.disc-conference.org/wp/disc2022/).

The main conference will take place between the 25th to the 27th.

There are two workshop and tutorial days: 24th and the 28th.

We intend to follow the “workshops template” from DISC 2019 (http://www.disc-conference.org/wp/disc2019/workshops/), that is, there will be up to 3-4 workshops each day (depending on the predicted number of participants) where we synchronize the parallel talks as much as possible so that “cross-workshops” participants will not miss any of the talks. This also guarantees shared coffee and lunch breaks.

The organization of DISC will encourage students to participate in the workshops, e.g., allotting a quota of free-of-charge local students, and waiving workshop registration for students that participate in the main conference. DISC will also waive the registration fees of a limited number of speakers per workshop/tutorial.

We are interested in topics which are related to distributed-computing and systems on one hand, but also in topics that have the potential of extending the scope of what the community sees as “distributed computing” on the other hand (please see the scope of DISC in http://www.disc-conference.org/wp/disc2022/ and check out the list of last’s year workshops in http://www.disc-conference.org/wp/disc2021/workshops/).

Please email me (Yannic Maus, yannic.maus@ist.tugraz.at) a short proposal by the end of May with the following details:

  1. Workshop/tutorial name and an optional acronym (please state whether it is a workshop,a tutorial, or any other format)
  2. Names, affiliations, and email addresses of the organizers. Please specify who is the point of contact.
  3. Short description of the workshop’s topic and its relevance to the DISC community.
  4. Date preference: please state if you are OK with being scheduled to the 24th or the 28th, or that you are OK with both options.
  5. Two names of committed speakers.
  6. A skeleton schedule of the workshop (see an example in here: https://parsys.lri.fr/CELLS/#page_program)
  7. A link to a website of a past meeting of your workshop.
  8. Predicted number of participants.
  9. In case the physical meeting is canceled, would you like to have a virtual workshop?

Thank you,
