INFOCOM 2014 Call for Workshop Proposals
The IEEE INFOCOM 2014 conference will be held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, April 27 to May 2, 2014. In addition to the main conference's technical program, the conference will also include a set of workshops. The goal of the workshops is to explore emerging research topics, and to provide a forum for authors to present early research results on these topics. We would like to have a limited number of workshops, with a high quality program dominated by contributed papers. Contributions to the workshops would be for presenting novel ideas in a less formal setting, possibly more focused on a particular topic than the regular conference sessions do. We seek proposals from individuals and teams interested in organizing strong workshops. Each workshop will be a full day, with 4 sessions of 1 1/2 hours each. The dates for paper submission, notification and camera-ready version would preferably be coordinated across the selected workshop. Papers submitted to the individual workshops will likely be due in December 2013, with the camera-ready version due in February. All workshop papers will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore as well as various Abstracting and Indexing databases.
The workshop proposal, in plain text or PDF, should provide the following information:
1. Title, scope and topics of the workshop
2. Names, addresses, and affiliation of Workshop organizers
3. Tentative committee lists (organizers, steering committee if any, etc.)
4. Workshop format planned (papers, demos, panels, etc.)
5. Past history of the workshop (where held, number of papers, number of participants)
6. Rationale - why is the topic current and important; why would the workshop attract a significant number of submissions of good quality.
