Call for Workshops

This is a call for proposals for workshops which will be held in conjunction with IEEE iThings 2012 conference. Workshops will focus on the specific issues at the forefront of Internet of things and provide collaboration and exchanging space for researchers and industry practitioners to share their experience, vision and results.

Two functioning modes are proposed: selected papers mode or invited papers mode. The organizers of the workshop shall have responsibility of the call for papers, invitations, forming program committee, review and selection of papers as well as planning the workshop program. The registration fee for workshops will be determined by the conference (not the workshop itself). The fees will be paid to the conference, and the conference will provide workshop facilities including the working notes printing, the meeting room, coffee break, lunch, proceedings and etc. Each paper presented inside a workshop (invited or selected) will have to pay for the fees.

IEEE iThings 2012 proceedings will be submitted for publication[1] in IEEE Computer Society Digital Library (IEEE CSDL) and in IEEE Xplore. Proceedings will be submitted for indexing[2].

[1] While all conferences sponsored by the IEEE and/or published by CPS will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore and the CSDL, all conference proceedings must meet IEEE's quality standards, and IEEE reserves the right not to publish any proceedings that do not meet these standards.

[2] The IEEE cannot guarantee that any particular abstract or index entry will be included in Ei Compendex or any other indexing service. IEEE makes its best efforts to ensure indexing, but the indexing services are independent organizations not subject to IEEE control.

Selected best papers from IEEE iThings 2012 workshops will be recommended for publication in special issues of several SCI-indexed international journals (check the Special Issues webpage for details).

The workshops with more than 15 accepted papers will be granted with a free complimentary registration for the leading workshop organizer.

Important Dates

There are two functioning modes. In the invited papers case, the workshop chairs have the responsibility to invite confirmed researchers and practitioners in the domain and to check the relevance of proposed papers. While in selected paper workshop, a call for papers is diffused in order to select the best received ones. In this second case a programme committee is necessary for papers reviewing.

Here after we give the important dates corresponding to each workshop mode

Template for submitting proposals

Prospective workshop organizers should send a proposal containing the following information to IEEE iThings 2012 Workshop Chairs:
  1. Provide a concise formulation for the proposed workshop theme : Title of the workshop (Full name and Abbreviation) and specify the functioning mode
  2. Objectives, scope, and contribution to the main conference (up to 1 page)
  3. Provide short bio of the key organizers and their experience on conference/workshop organization.
  4. Provide the Name and Affiliation of the panellists you are planning to invite.
  5. Describe the procedure for selecting papers, plans for dissemination (for example, how to advertise and special issues of journals), and give the expected number of participants.
  6. Provide a tentative list of program committee members (if available)
Each workshop should identify one organizer as the point of contact. A brief advertisement plan should be included in the proposal. Approved workshops should follow the important dates, particularly the paper status notification and camera-ready dates. The submission deadline could be later than that of the main conference. But a selected paper workshop should have sufficient time, say 4-6 weeks, for generating peer reviews. Generally, each paper should receive 3 peer reviews. Proposals should be sent via email to all workshops chairs. Enquiries can also be sent to any one of the workshops chairs.
