Instructions for Workshop Proposals
Deadline for proposals: December 23rd
Notification: December 31st
We invite proposals for workshops. Workshops are intended to provide a forum for the discussion of a specific topic from the field of software business between an international group of researchers. Software business creates a noticeable spillover within other industries (e.g. manufacturing, entertainment industry) enabling new business models: companies bundle their physical products and software services into solutions (e.g. using subscription models or in-app purchases) and start to sell independent software products in addition to physical products. Therefore, we invite workshop proposals that focus on software business in new and emerging industries. Finally, we also warmly welcome workshop proposals aligned with the theme of ICSOB 2014: "Shortening the time-to-market".
Each workshop should have at least four paper presentations. The workshop organiser will be responsible for advertising the workshop, reviewing and selecting the papers. Financial assistance for the workshop organiser will be limited to one fee waiver for the conference. Papers accepted for workshops are planned to be published under the CCIS proceedings, http://link.springer.com/search?facet-series=%227899%22&facet-content-type=%22Book%22.
Proposals to organise workshops should include the following information:
- Title of the workshop
- Name, affiliation, mailing address and e-mail address of the proposer(s).
- A brief introduction of the proposer, explaining his/her qualifications.
- Names of at least three PC members for the workshops
- A description of the topic of the session (not exceeding 100 words)
- A short description on how the session will be advertised so as to ensure a sufficiently wide range of authors.
- A description of how the workshop will contribute to the field of Software Business.
- Please send your proposals to the Program Chairs of ICSOB 2014 and to workshop chair:
Casper Lassenius, Aalto University, Finland, firstname.lastname@example.org
Kari Smolander, Lappeenranta University of Technology, Finland, email@example.com
Krzysztof Wnuk, Lund University, Sweden, firstname.lastname@example.org
Papers for workshops should be submitted directly to the workshop using our paper submission system. The workshop organizer will be required to use the ICSOB 2014 paper submission engine and to review the papers on basis of the same criteria as those in the main track. The list of papers accepted for a workshop should be sent to the Program Chairs before April 15, 2014.
