Mini-Workshop Guidelines

Last Updated: February 3, 2009

Your mini-workshop concept should address the following topics:

  • Full contact information for the principal organizer;
  • Abstract (2-3 sentences)
  • One-page outline of the theme and goals of the workshop;
  • Short statement discussing the relevance of the workshop to the field of IT for space missions;
  • The desired minimum and maximum number of workshop participants - please also state and justify the expected number of participants (to help determine whether the workshop is also financially feasible);
  • The participant solicitation and selection process (also whether open/closed);
  • A brief description of each organizer's background, including relevant past experience in organizing workshops and contact information;
  • A preliminary version of the call for workshop papers that the workshop organizers intend to use;
  • A list of (proposed and already committed) program committee members
  • Requested equipment, room capacity and organization, and any other logistic constraints

Mini-Workshop organizers will be required to construct a web page(s) for inclusion in the SMC-it.org web site that outlines the following:

  • Workshop title
  • Abstract of what the workshop is about, it's goals, and possible products
  • Call for Papers (optional - if needed)
  • Preliminary Program - titles of talks, presenters, affiliation
    • Abstracts for talks can be hot-linked to title
    • Viewgraphs can also be put up (during or after conference)
  • Conference organizer contact information

IMPORTANT: Preliminary Program, with titles and authors, must be uploaded to the SMC-IT web page (for assistance contact *Kathy Little, contact information below) by May 1, 2009. We strongly encourage general information pages to be put up much earlier, by March 1, 2009.
