Call for Workshop Proposals

The PROPOR 2022 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. The overall purpose of a workshop is to provide participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel research ideas on active and emerging topics of computational processing of Portuguese, Galician and their variants.

Workshops can take on several forms including (but not limited to) being organized around emerging research areas, challenge problems, and industrial applications. The organizers of approved workshops are required to announce the workshop and call for papers, gather submissions, conduct the reviewing process and decide upon the final workshop program. They must also prepare a set of workshop proceedings to be distributed with the registration materials at the conference or in an electronic version. They may choose to form organizing or program committees for assistance in these tasks.

Important dates: * Workshop proposals due: September 17, 2021. * Notification of decision: October 1, 2021. * Workshop web pages available and linked to the main site. Workshop CFP published: January 14, 2022. * Camera-ready of papers of the Workshop: February 18, 2022. * PROPOR 2022 Workshops (electronic proceedings due for online publication): March 21, 2022.

Proposal Details:

Proposals should be submitted via e-mail to propor2022wstut at gmail.com. They should be no more than three pages in length and must include: * Description of the workshop: title, abstract, objectives, goals, relevance, and expected outcome. * Motivation, why a PROPOR workshop on this topic is needed. * Description of the target audience. * List of core committed program committee members (at least 2 to 3 members). * Preliminary list of invited speakers (if any). * For workshops previously held at PROPOR or other conferences, details on venue, attendance, and number of submissions from previous years. * For new workshops, a list of potential attendees/submissions and/or a justification of the expected attendees and submissions. * Relevant experience of the organizing committee. * Duration of the workshop (full day or half day). * Contact information (address, email, and phone) for all organizers. * Designation of a contact person.

The workshop organizers are responsible for: * Creating and distributing call-for-papers, call-for-participation, and any other relevant advertising. The calls should make it clear that at least one author of any accepted paper must attend the event and that papers will be withdrawn if no such participation is secured with the payment of the workshop dues. The call should clearly describe the review and selection process. Finally, the calls must be framed to encourage as broad a participation as possible. * Creating and publishing (on time) a website with all the relevant information about the workshop. * Provide an extended abstract for the conference program. * Review and select papers submitted. * Schedule the presentations within the workshop. * It should be noted that the conference organization does not budget for free registration, accommodation, or travel expenses for the workshop organizers or their invited speakers. The workshop organizers should therefore secure any source of funding/sponsorship deemed necessary for their invited speakers. * Prepare electronic proceedings volumes by the end of September 2022.

Tutorial co-chairs * Marcos Garcia – Universidade de Santiago de Compostela (Galiza). * Larissa A. de Freitas – Universidade Federal de Pelotas (Brasil).
