Second International Conference on
Generative Programming and Component Engineering (GPCE'03)

Workshop Chair:
Kasper Osterbye, IT University Copenhagen


GPCE workshops provide intensive collaborative environments where generative and component technologists meet to surface, discuss, and solve challenging problems facing the field.

Workshops occur on the day before the conference. To ensure a sufficiently small group for effective interaction, workshop organizers manage attendance based on an objective criterion, typically, a short position paper submitted by potential attendees. Other criteria are permitted as long as they are clearly specified in the workshop's call for participation.

We encourage proposals for innovative, well-focused workshops on a broad spectrum of component engineering and generative programming topics. All topics related to generative programming and component engineering are potential candidates for workshops. Workshops typically fall into the
following categories:

Workshop topics are by no means limited to the types mentioned above. However, in each case, the proposed area is supposed to have enough impetus to yield new results that can be considered important and worth more detailed investigation.

What should a proposal look like?

Workshop proposals should be sent in ASCII or PDF format to the workshop chair, and they should consist of four pages/parts:


Important Dates

Workshop proposals schedule

This call for participation is for workshop organizers; a later call will occur for workshop attendees.

Workshop attendee schedule  (all workshops):

Early conference registration close on August 3.

Submission Process

Electronic submission of proposals is required--send to Proposals must be submitted no later than April 6, 2003, BUT EARLIER IS BETTER, as it allows for a more satisfactory coordination between workshop proposals.

Proposal Review and Acceptance
The proposals received will be reviewed by the Workshop Committee to determine a high quality and appropriate mix for the conference.
