FRCCS 2024 invites proposals for workshops on May 28, 2024. We solicit proposals on current and emerging topics in Complex Systems. Workshops allow discussion of novel issues in a small and interactive atmosphere. They can concentrate in-depth on research topics but can also be devoted to application domains, problems. Multidisciplinary workshops that bring together researchers and practitioners from different communities are particularly welcome.
We encourage the submission of proposals for both full-day and half-day sessions.
• Half-day workshops consist of a 4-hour program with a 30-minute coffee break.
• Full-day workshops typically run for 7 hours, including two 30-minute breaks for coffee and lunch.
We strongly recommend workshop organizers to aim for diverse and engaging programs. Specifically, when designing your workshop format, consider going beyond the typical format of paper presentations. Workshops provide an opportunity for in-depth exploration of interesting topics through various means such as discussions, demo sessions, invited talks, and panel discussions.
Another way to enhance the workshop experience is by including a specific challenge problem that workshop participants can address in a dedicated challenge session within the workshop program. It’s important to note that the challenge should be just one component of the workshop, focused on a problem relevant to the workshop’s theme or topics
