Your proposal should contain the following pertinent information:
- A brief description of the workshop, including the workshop's name and topic, and a short summary of the technical issues in the focus of the workshop. A sketch of the workshop's Call for Papers will be helpful.
- Names, affiliations, and e-mail addresses of the workshop organizers. Please mark the primary contact person.
- Preferred workshop duration, format and an estimate of the number of expected participants.

Based on the input you provide, the decision about the acceptance or rejection of your proposal as a co-located workshop will be made by the EDBT/ICDT 2013 General, Program, and Workshop Chairs. We expect you to work with the EDBT/ICDT 2013 local organizers on the details and publicity aspects of your accepted workshop.
