Proposals are solicited for workshops to be held in conjunction with the 2013 World Cybermatics Congress (IEEE iThings/CPSCom/GreenCom 2013). The purpose of these workshops is to provide vibrant opportunities for researchers and industry practitioners to share their research experience, original research results and practical development experiences on specific new challenges and emerging issues at the forefront of IoT, cyber-physical-social computing, and green computing and communications.
The organizers of the workshop shall have responsibility of the call for papers, 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.
Proceedings of the IEEE iThings/CPSCom/GreenCom 2013 workshops will be published by IEEE Computer Society (EI indexed). Selected best papers from the 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.
Prospective workshop organizers should send a proposal containing the following information to the Workshop Chairs of the 2013 World Cybermatics Congress (IEEE iThings/CPSCom/GreenCom 2013).
- Title of the workshop (Full name and Abbreviation);
- Objectives, scope, and contribution to the main conference (up to 1 page);
- Short bio of the key organizers and their experience on conference/workshop organization;
- Procedure for selecting papers, plans for dissemination (for example, how to advertise and special issues of
and the expected number of participants;
- A tentative list of program committee members (if available);
- A tentative website address, or a webpage under the main conferenc website.
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 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.
