I would like to launch some applications at startup, but I want them to be in a specific workspace.

I can edit the fluxbox startup-script to launch those applications, but I don't know how to specify in which workspace it must be launched.

you do not need any external tools, just read man fluxbox-apps, edit .fluxbox/apps and put there something like

[app] (name=xyz)
   [workspace] (n)

Use gdevilspie to match this application and set the workspace.
