DISC 2023 will be held this year in L’Aquila, Italy from the 9th to the 13th of October (http://www.disc-conference.org/wp/disc2023/). We invite proposals for full-day and half-day workshops and tutorials. They will take place on Monday the 9th and Friday the 13th of October.
We expect that most talks of workshops are held in presence at the conference site. We intend to follow the “workshops template” from DISC 2019 (see the workshop program at a glance at 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 organizers 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.
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.
Workshop/Tutorial proposal deadline: May 31, 2023, at 23:59 AoE.
