Aims and Scope

The periodical Dagstuhl Reports documents the program and the results of Dagstuhl Seminars and Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshops.

In principle, for each Dagstuhl Seminar or Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshop a report is published that contains the following:

  • an executive summary of the seminar program and the fundamental results,
  • an overview of the talks given during the seminar (summarized as talk abstracts), and
  • summaries from working groups (if applicable).

This basic framework can be extended by suitable contributions that are related to the program of the seminar, e.g. summaries from panel discussions or open problem sessions.

Editorial Board

Constitution

The Scientific Directorate of Schloss Dagstuhl acts as editorial board. The task of the Scientific Directorate is to implement the Center's designated purpose in a scientific and subject-matter capacity. It convenes twice a year to establish the research and event program, ensure the quality of the Center's offerings, and monitor how the program is put into practice.

Members of the Scientific Directorate are the Scientific Director and as many scientific experts as necessary and appropriate for the competent evaluation of important computer science fields.

Members of the Scientific Directorate are appointed by the Supervisory Board following a joint proposal by the Scientific Director and the Scientific Advisory Board. Proposals are collated by the Scientific Director in collaboration with the Scientific Advisory Board based on proposals from the shareholders, the Scientific Directorate, and the Scientific Advisory Board.

Info for Authors

As part of our quality assurance towards our funding partners, Schloss Dagstuhl likes to keep records of all Dagstuhl Seminars and Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshops. Furthermore, such a documentation provides a reference for the seminar participants as well as for researchers who were unable to attend.

We hereby ask you to prepare a documentation entry with regard to your talk (in case you have given one during the seminar). Additionally, results from working groups should also be documented. For given talks, the documentation mainly consists of a brief abstract along with a list of co-authors and a bibliograpic reference (if available).

Your documentation entry will be published as part of the seminar's issue in the periodical series Dagstuhl Reports.


General procedure

Each seminar designates a collector (see #editor) who is in charge of supporting the seminar organizers to prepare the report for the seminar.

Maybe already during, but at the latest shortly after the seminar, the collector will send a Call-for-Abstracts to the seminar participants asking them to submit an abstract of their talk. If the seminar has organized working groups, some participants may also be in charge of submitting a report with regard to the disucssions and results of the working group.


Deadline

The collector will announce a deadline in the Call-for-Abstracts by which your abstract should be submitted. This deadline is strict and there will be no extensions.

Typically, the deadline is about two months after the seminar.


Upload of your documentation entry

To submit your documentation entry, please visit

http://drs.dagstuhl.de/<sem-nr>
whereby <sem-nr> is the five-digit number of your seminar, e.g. 10501. To access the Dagstuhl Reports submission interface, you need the door key which was communicated with the travel informations as well as with the collector's call-for-abstracts.

The submission works as follows:

  1. Select "Add abstract" (or click the edit button for an already existing entry).
  2. Fill out the form by providing title, authors, abstract, and - if applicable - a bibliographic reference together with its digital location.
  3. IMPORTANT: To approve your entry for publication, please select "Complete abstract" in the "Completed" section of the abstract editor. No more changes can be made after saving a completed entry. You may modify or amend your entry as long as it is not marked as completed.
  4. Select "Save abstract" to save your data (or select "Cancel" if you wish to abort the submission).
  5. Select either "save all" or "cancel" brings you back to the list of your documentation entries.
Please note that you have to complete your submission before the deadline announced by the collector.

By submitting your documentation entry timely, you support the seminar organizers to comply with the funding guidelines of Schloss Dagstuhl. This is highly appreciated.

In case of questions, please contact the seminar's collector or the editorial office at Schloss Dagstuhl.

Info for Organizers

The funding scheme of Dagstuhl Seminars and Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshops requires quality assurance and documentation. We rely on your input and support for assuring our obligations. Hence, we appreciate your efforts for preparing a comprehensive report of your seminar that fulfills not only the task of documentation, but may also serve as a reference in the future or for researchers who couldn't attend the seminar.


Content

The content of the report should include:

  • an executive summary of the seminar program and the fundamental results,
  • an overview of the talks given during the seminar (summarized as talk abstracts), and
  • summaries from working groups (if applicable).

This basic framework can be extended by suitable contributions that are related to the program of the seminar, e.g. summaries from panel discussions or open problem sessions.


Organization

The organizers are asked to designate a collector (see paragraph below), typically a junior researcher, who coordinates the preparation of the report in close cooperation with the organizers and the editorial office at Schloss Dagstuhl. The collector should have basic knowledge of LaTeX due to being in charge of typesetting issues.

The collector collects the abstracts of the talks given during the seminar (by sending out an appropriate Call-for-Abstracts) as well the results from working groups. Finally, the executive summary, written by the seminar organizers, and additional summaries (from panel discussions or open problem sessions) must be integrated into the report.


Collector

The collector acts as editorial coordinator supporting the seminar organizers in preparing the report for the Dagstuhl Seminar or Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshop in close cooperation with the editorial office at Schloss Dagstuhl.

During the seminar, the collector should observe the seminar program, especially with respect to given talks and working groups. Furthermore, records should be kept on open problem sessions or panel discussions.

After the seminar, the collector is in charge of sending out a Call for Abstracts to the seminar participants. Technical interfaces are provided by Schloss Dagstuhl and corresponding URLs are communicated in due time to the collector. Via the technical webinterface, participants are able to upload the abstract of their talk along with comprehensive metadata. The collector can make use of our semi-automated scripts that provide a single LaTeX-file capturing all submitted abstracts.

The seminar report is typeset using LaTeX, hence the collector should have basic knowledge with LaTeX. The collector has to prepare the LaTeX document containing the executive summary (written by the seminar organizers), the abstracts submitted by the seminar participants, and--if applicable--reports from working groups, panel discussions, or open problem sessions.

If contentwise the report is final (which should be approved by the seminar organizers), the collector sends the LaTeX sources to the editorial office at Schloss Dagstuhl (reports@dagstuhl.de).

The report is the finalized by Dagstuhl's editorial office (adaption of page numbers and further bibliographic issues, minor corrections, ...). Before official publication, the report is sent to the seminar organizers and the collector for approval.

The collector receives a fair compensation for his efforts after the report is published. Details are available on request.

Editorship / Authorship

The organizers of the Dagstuhl Seminar or Dagstuhl Perspectives Workshop are going to act as editors of the seminar report. The authorship of the talk abstracts is mentioned adequately within the report.


FAQ
General

The list of editors is restricted to the organisers of the seminar. The collector is mentioned as editorial assistant directly on the front page of the report (i.e., "Edited in cooperation with ..."). Furthermore, the collector receives a fair compensation for his efforts after the report is published.

Dagstuhl Publishing and the scientific director of Schloss Dagstuhl decided several years ago to unify the format of the seminar documentation and to publish these documentations as so called Dagstuhl Reports. It was decided that only the official organizers of the seminar are listed as editors of the respective report.

FAQ
General

Yes, we expect our Perspective Workshops to prepare a Dagstuhl Report and a Dagstuhl Manifesto.

The Dagstuhl Reports series aims at documenting a seminar/workshop; the report is not reviewed. See http://www.dagstuhl.de/dagrep.
(We expect the submission of the report 3 months after the workshop/seminar.)

A Dagstuhl Manifesto aims at describing the state of the art of the field and proposing visions and perspectives. The manifesto is reviewed by the scientific directorate of Dagstuhl. The manifesto targets both the scientific community and "political" stakeholders (such as funding agencies, EU departments, ...). See http://www.dagstuhl.de/dagman.
(We expect the submission of the manifesto ~6 months after the seminar.)
