Currently, we set up workshop sites by asking the workshops chair some information, which we use to create a conference edition for each workshop.

Make a workshop submission system in which workshop organizers need to submit their bid for a workshop, which can then be accepted or rejected by the conference organizers / workshops committee. This process gives us all the data we need to set up the conference websites automatically.

Sept 27:

Workshop organizers would submit there proposal in researchr, where it can be assessed by the workshop committees and others (such as SIGPLAN EC rep). We can then generate the (initial) workshop website from the information submitted (which should e.g. include call for papers and proposed PC). In this process we can ensure to inject the standardized instruction for authors.

I created an accepted workshops page with links to the workshops and scheduled days and paper submissions. I can populate the days on that. Would it be possible for Elmer to automate that page?

I'm thinking of a submission page with a set of fields that can be used for the creation of a workshop, being a sub-conference of the conference having the call-for-workshops.
Additionally, a free text field can be used to add a template text to be completed by a workshop submitter. This field is to be used for other specific data required by the call, like info about sponsorship and proceedings.

When a workshop submission comes in, the pending submission can be accepted or rejected. The request should be printable or attachable for further review/discussion using other communication lines. When accepted, one can choose to spawn a workshop subconference (or request to the conf admininistrators, not sure yet).
