In order to identify and to integrate the scientific community’s interests on emerging areas of Computer Sciences, the Mexican Society of Computer Sciences invites groups to submit workshop proposals to be held in conjunction to the 8th Encuentro Internacional de Ciencias de la Computación 2007 (ENC'07).


The workshops provide a valuable opportunity to communities with common interests to present and discuss recent advances and research opportunities in emergent areas, and consolidate opportunities for developing such areas in our country. The topics addressed by the workshops must be complementary to those proposed by the tracks of ENC’07.


Enc workshops coordinators:

- Alexander Gelbukh, CIC-IPN, www.gelbukh.com

- José-Luis Zechinelli-Martini, CENTIA-UDLAP, joseluis.zechinelliudlap.mx


Detailed guidelines:

Proposals for workshops should be sent by email at enc2007workshopsgelbukh.com (all correspondence is to be also sent to this address; correspondence sent to personal addresses of the workshop coordinators is not guaranteed to be read) by the deadline indicated below and should contain:

-         Title of the workshop.

-         Organizers: names and institution.

-         A description of the workshop's technical area including the objective, the impact of the subject in the international scientific community, and the subjects of interest that will be addressed.

-         Structure and organization: duration of the workshop, sessions, type of expected contributions (long/short papers, posters, and demonstrations), publication language(s), evaluation process and important dates.

-         Possible keynote speakers (at least one). The SMCC will finance travel expenses (transport and hotel) for one keynote speaker for every workshop.

-         Possible program committee members (principals’ members list, estimated number of committee members).

-         Estimated number of contributions to be submitted, to be accepted.

-         Advertising policy: how the CFP will be advertised to the corresponding community.


Workshop proposals will be evaluated by a scientific committee. Evaluation criteria include the experience of the organizing group in the proposed subject, the impact of the subject for the scientific, industrial, academic community and the clarity and solidity of the proposal.


All paper submissions for workshops will be evaluated by 3 members of the program committee defined by the organizers of each workshop.  Workshop papers can be written in English or Spanish. Papers’ evaluation process will be managed by the EasyChair web submission system.


Accepted papers will be published in a CD and in the workshops proceedings that will be published by the SMCC. Accepted articles written in English will be published in IEEE workshop proceedings, so they will have to respect IEEE guidelines. The organizers of accepted workshops will have to define details for the workshop organization. Workshops’ web sites management will be centralized in the SMCC server.  Workshops’ important days will be later than those of the general conference.
