WCRE Call for Workshop Proposals

NOTE: This page is obviously obsolete, as it refers to the 2002 conference. However, it can be reworked for future conferences.

WCRE Workshops

Continuing the successful extension of WCRE with workshops in the last two years, WCRE 2002 offers you the opportunity to organize a workshop devoted to a reverse engineering or reengineering topic. Workshops would be held on Monday October 28, Tuesday October 29, or Friday November 1, immediately before or after the WCRE main conference, in coordination with the WCRE schedule.

WCRE workshops are characterized by a focused topic, lively discussion, and enthusiastic participants. Typical group size is between 10 and 20 participants.

Workshop Position Papers

WCRE Workshops are not based on full papers, but on short position papers proposing risky new directions or making provocative statements about particular areas in reverse engineering research.

Position papers will be printed in specific workshop proceedings, printed by the Virginia Commonwealth University, which will be distributed to all WCRE participants. Position papers will not be printed in the WCRE conference proceedings as published by IEEE.

In order to ensure a timely delivery of the workshop proceedings, workshop organizers are requested to adopt the following submission dates for workshop papers:

  • September 13: Submission of position papers
  • September 27: Notification of acceptance
  • October 11: Position papers final versions due.
  • Oct 28,29 or Nov 1: Workshop in Richmond, VA

The Workshop Description

If you are interested in organizing a workshop, please write a workshop description of at most two pages. This description should include the workshop name, organizers, goals, topics addressed, paper selection criteria and mechanism discussion format, length of the workshop (full day or half day) expected outcomes, expected follow ups, and other issues that could be relevant to the workshop.

Workshop proposals will be judged by the WCRE Chairs on originality, relevance to the field of reverse engineering, expected level of interest in the topic, and the organizers' ability to lead a successful workshop.

The workshop description should be formatted according to the IEEE Conference Proceedings standard. Please submit your proposal to wcre.2002@durham.ac.uk .

Workshop proposal dates

  • June 21: workshop description submission
  • July 22: proposal notification of acceptance
  • August 9: workshop description final version due

Workshop Organizer Responsibilities

If you are interested in organizing a WCRE workshop you should be prepared to take care of at least the following:

  • Maintaining a web site
  • Generating publicity for your workshop
  • Selecting submitted papers
  • Composing a workshop program
  • Keeping track of participants
  • Making your workshop into a successful event

Workshop registration will be handled via the WCRE registration. Workshop participants generally register to attend the full WCRE conference. There will be a registration fee for anyone attending just the workshop.
