Distributed Computing Techniques 2009
June 9-12, 2009
Conference Dates: June 9-12, 2009
Affiliated Workshops Date: 12 June, 2009
The 4th Conference on Distributed Computing Techniques will be held next summer in Lisbon, Portugal. Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for workshops on topics related to distributed computing techniques and its applications.
The purpose of the workshops is to provide a forum for members of a focused research community to present preliminary research results and discuss position-style papers. Workshops are alternative forums for presenting full research papers. As such, organisers are encouraged to adopt an format that fosters interaction and discussion, devoting less focus to individual, formal presentations.
The Distributed Computing Techniques 2009 Organising Committee invites proposals for one day workshops to be held in conjunction with the conferences.
Prospective workshop organisers are requested to follow the guidelines below and are encouraged to contact the workshops chair should any questions arise.
State your publication intentions in your proposal. If enough workshops are interested in either ENTCS or the ACM DL, we will approach the publishers as a federation, otherwise contact information will be forward for you to deal directly with the editors.
Workshop proposals will be reviewed by the organisers. Acceptance is based on an evaluation of the workshop's potential for generating useful results, the timeliness and expected interest in the topic, the organiser's ability to lead a successful workshop, and potential for attracting sufficient number of participants.
Workshop organisers are responsible for following items:
DisCoTec will provide registration and organisational support for the workshops. Registration fees must be paid for all participants, including organisers and invited guests.

Each workshop may increase this fee to cover additional expenses such as publication charges, student scholarships, registration for invited guests, etc. All fees will be collected by the DisCoTec organisers as part of the registration, then additional funds will be redistributed to the individual workshop organisers.
Additionally, DisCoTec organisation will provide
