17th International Conference on Formal Concept Analysis
July 17-21, 2023, Kassel, Germany
# Call for Workshops and Tutorials
The ICFCA 2023 Organizing Committee invites proposals for
workshops/tutorials to be held on the first day of the conference (July
17, 2023), which will take place in Kassel, Germany. We invite proposals
for both **full- and half-day workshops/tutorial** in current and
emerging topics in (or related to) Formal Concept Analysis. The workshop
and tutorials provide an opportunity to discuss novel topics in an
interactive atmosphere. They can concentrate in-depth on research
topics, but can also be devoted to application issues.
ICFCA 2023 will be a hybrid conference with a strong emphasis on on-site
interaction. Therefore all contributors are required to present their
work locally in Kassel.
# Duration & format
We welcome both full- and half-day workshop/tutorial proposals. We would
like to encourage proposers to aim for a program that is both varied and
interesting. For workshops, especially where the format is concerned, we
would like you to think about ways of going beyond the usual list of
presentations of accepted papers. Another way of extending the usual
format is to include a specific challenge problem that can be addressed
by the workshop participants, with a dedicated challenge session in the
workshop program. Note, however, that the challenge should be only one
of the components of the workshop, targeting a problem which is specific
to the workshop topic(s).
# Combined Tutorial & Workshop
Especially for a relatively novel but rapidly maturing topic, giving an
introduction of the state-of-the-art may go beyond the scope of an
invited presentation. In this case, a half day tutorial followed by a
half day workshop could be a good format.
# Guidelines for proposals
When proposing a workshop or a tutorial, please provide (at least) the
- A brief description of
- the specific issues that will be addressed,
- the reasons why the workshop/tutorial is of interest in these times,
- the main research areas involved,
- and what the workshop/tutorial will add to the conference (e.g., do
you expect papers of a theme that would not fit the main conference?).
- For workshops,
- a draft of the Call for Papers, including information on accepted
formats (e.g., regular papers, extended abstracts, oral-only
presentations of relevant recently published or submitted contributions,
- and expected format of the workshop (e.g., invited talks,
presentations, poster sessions, panel discussions, challenge sessions,
or other ideas for ensuring an interactive atmosphere).
- In the case of a combined tutorial-workshop, please clearly
indicate the format.
- Any special requirements regarding logistics (e.g., poster stands,
audio equipment), if applicable.
For applying or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to
contact the Program Chairs Domingo López Rodríguez and Dominik
Dürrschnabel: icfca2023(a)lists.cs.uni-kassel.de. We are looking forward
to your proposals.
