Can I update my workshop submission?
Yes, you can update your workshop submission until the submission deadline.
The workshops submission strongly encourages including an inclusivity plan. Do you have guidance on what an inclusivity plan should include and how it will be evaluated during proposal review?
SC’s inclusivity effort is described on the Inclusivity page, including a link to demographic information about the conference’s organizing committee. With respect to the inclusivity plan for workshop proposals, we’re looking for some content that describes the submitters’ plans for practicing inclusivity in their workshop organizing committee. For instance, if the workshop is organized around peer-reviewed technical papers, the inclusivity plan may describe how the proposal submitters will demonstrate inclusivity when putting together their paper review committee. Note that the plan does *not* deal with demonstrating inclusivity in the papers that such a workshop would accept.
Since not all workshops follow the peer-reviewed paper model, we’re not requiring a specific format for the inclusivity plan, similar to how we do not require a specific format for the advertising plan or expected outcome from the workshop.
The inclusivity plan will be reviewed similarly to the other content in the workshop proposal, with the reviewer indicating whether the proposal includes a plan and the reviewer’s rating indicating their evaluation of the plan’s likelihood to produce inclusivity in the workshop organizing committee.
Does the SC conference include workshop proceedings in its proceedings?
No, SC does not include workshop papers or abstracts in its proceedings. Workshop organizers who want to publish proceedings for their workshops should contact an IEEE-approved publisher.
However, the SC conference provides a technical program archive where a workshop can archive its agenda and brief abstracts. This should not be considered publication of the workshop’s proceedings.
