EasyChair for Workshops

Several organizational tasks, including the generation of workshop webpages, generation of the programme and the USB proceedings, will be carried out through EasyChair. Therefore FLoC workshop organisers are required to have an EasyChair setup for their workshop. This also applies, for instance, if the workshop is not based on paper submissions and only features invited talks. 

Workshop Proceedings

All FLoC 2018 participants will receive a USB flash drive with all the conference proceedings. We encourage all workshops to have their proceedings added to the USB flash drive. Workshops can also have online proceedings, for example on or FLoC will not be involved with such proceedings.

Workshop Dinners

The following workshop dinners will be organised by FLoC, which participants can sign up for and pay for during registration:

Pre-FLoC Workshops: July 7 (Balliol College)
Mid-FLoC Workshops: July 13 (Keble College)
Post-FLoC Workshops: July 18 (Magdalen College)

Note that these venues have limited capacity and the dinners are expected to sell out quickly.  Start time TBC, probably 7:00 pm.

Registration Policy

The following principles apply to all the participants of events of FLoC 2018, including workshop organisers and invited workshop speakers.

  1. At least one author of an accepted workshop paper must be registered for the workshop.
  2. Workshops are of varying length and registrations are split per day to simplify the registration process. If you are attending a two- or three-day workshop you are expected to register for the full workshop.
  3. A person registered for a FLoC event (conference or workshop) can attend any parallel FLoC event in the same category (conference, or workshop) on the same day.
  4. A person attending a FLoC event must be be registered for that event, or for a parallel FLoC event in the same category on the same day.
  5. A speaker at a FLoC event is expected to be registered for all days of the event.
  6. Participation in event-specific social activities (dinners, banquets, public lecture, public debate) is limited to those who are registered for that event.
  7. Invited workshops speakers are not given free workshop registration.  Some workshops have done their own fundraising for this purpose: please contact your Workshop Chair if you have any questions.

Each workshop day has the same form and consists of two morning sessions and two afternoon sessions:

08:30 Setup (help desk available)
