Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for ONE DAY workshops on topics related to theory, formal modeling, verification,performance evaluation and engineering of concurrent, timed, industrial,and other systems. Typically, CONFEST workshops feature a number of invited speakers and anumber of contributed presentations.

The workshops will take place one day before (18 September) and one day after (23 September) the main conferences.


The purpose of the workshops is to provide participants with a friendly, stimulating, and interactive atmosphere for:

  • presenting novel ideas,
  • discussing their applications,
  • encouraging cross-fertilization between industry and academia, and
  • fostering opportunities for young and prospective researchers.


CONFEST’23 is planned as a physical, in-person event, with some support for remote participation. In a limited number of cases, there will be remote-participation support for speakers and for other participants who are unable to come. Please take this into account when preparing a workshop proposal and communicate to participants requiring such support that they should contact the organizers of CONFEST explaining their case.

We will provide the following to workshop organisers:

  • Meeting rooms on demand
  • Coffee breaks, catering for lunch, both are included
  • The CONFEST'23 website cannot be made accessible for edits by third parties but workshop organisers can either host their own website and provide a link to it that we put on CONFEST website, or they send us their content and we put it in the website.
  • Registration will be centralized by CONFEST. 
  • Special rates for hotels, as well as local information, can be found on the website.
