Call for Workshop Proposals

The 2013 edition of the Working Conference on Reverse Engineering (WCRE) workshops provide a forum for researchers to exchange and discuss their early innovative scientific ideas in reverse-engineering. Young students can get initial feedback on their first research endeavours, while more seasoned researchers get the opportunity to brainstorm with their peers about emerging topics in their field.

We currently solicit proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main conference. Workshops can be full or half day, and devoted to a specific topic of interest in the reverse-engineering domain, ranging from theoretical underpinnings to practical applications or case studies.

WCRE 2013 workshops are characterized by a focused topic, lively discussion, and enthusiastic participants (typical group size is between 10 and 20 participants). Workshop proposals should include the following information (with a maximum of at most 2 pages in IEEE proceedings format):

  • workshop title;
  • workshop organizers and contact information;
  • identify a main contact for the workshop;
  • brief description of workshop topic and goals;
  • draft workshop schedule including duration (full day or half day), format of sessions and discussions;
  • plans for generating and stimulating discussion at the workshop;
  • expected outcomes and follow ups of the workshop;
  • paper selection criteria and mechanism;
  • brief description of each organizer's background, including relevant past experience in organizing conferences and workshops;
  • other issues that could be relevant to the workshop.

Workshop proposals will be judged on their originality, relevance to the field of reverse engineering, the expected level of interest in the topic, and the organizers’ ability to lead a successful workshop.


The best papers of the WCRE workshops (including editorials) will be selected for a Special issue of Electronic Communications of the EASST, while the final workshop proposal will be included in the WCRE 2013 proceedings.
