We invite proposals for workshops or tutorials to be held on the first day of ICCS 2023 (September 11, 2023) in Berlin, Germany. Proposals should address current and emerging topics related to the formal analysis and representation of conceptual knowledge (cf. also the list of topics in the CfP). Workshops 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.

Duration and Format

We welcome both full- and half-day workshop/tutorial proposals and encourage a program that is both varied and interesting. We specifically encourage innovative formats for workshops that go beyond traditional paper presentations, for example, including a challenge for participants to solve, or jointly working on a specific problem or document at the venue. Combinations of half-day tutorial and workshop are also possible, thus providing the option to introduce a topic and then to discuss relevant research.

ICCS 2023 will be an on-site conference, thus all contributors are required to present their work locally in Berlin.

Important Dates

  • Proposal deadline: May 5th, 2023
  • Notification of acceptance: May 12th, 2023
  • Tutorial/Workshop day: September 11th, 2023

Guidelines for proposals

Proposals should (at least) provide the following information:

  • A brief description of
    • the specific issues that will be addressed,
    • the reasons why the workshop/tutorial is of relevance,
    • 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,
    • information on the workshop chairs and the expected program committee,
    • 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, etc.),
    • and the 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.
  • Specifically for tutorials, please add some details on the person(s) who gives the tutorial and the expected length.
  • Any special requirements regarding logistics (e.g., poster stands, audio equipment), if applicable.


Please send your applications or questions to Robert Jäschke (contact@iccs-conference.org). We are looking forward to your proposals.
