The Conference Organizing Committee invites submissions from individuals or groups to conduct Workshops at the EAI SmartSP 2023. The goals of the workshops are to explore emerging research topics on Security and Privacy in Cyber-Physical Systems and Smart Vehicles 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.
Deadline for Workshop Proposals:
31 May 2023
Notification Deadline of Workshop Proposals acceptance:
15 June 2023
- Workshop title
- Abstract (less than 200 words)
- Name, affiliation, and e-mail address for each organizer
- Identification of the primary contact person(s)
- Background and Motivation: What is the overall topic of the workshop? Why is this topic of particular interest at this time? If the workshop has been organized in the past at Pervasive Health or other conferences, please give details of previous instances (venue, URL) and describe why it should be held again and how it will extend and build upon previous ones.
- Topics and scope: These should be within or close to the scope covered by the main conference, as mentioned above.
- Format: Give a description of the proposed workshop format, including the target number of participants, planned activities (such as introductions, invited talks, breakout group activities, and general discussion), as well as how these activities address the workshop objectives.
- Soliciting Submissions: Indicate how you plan to attract submissions and/or participants. Tactics may include circulating a call to relevant mailing lists (indicate these please as well), publicizing your workshop at other relevant venues, and more.
- Selecting Participants: Indicate how you plan to select participants and contributions to the workshop. Indicate a program committee to help with the organization/review process.
- Organizers: Give short descriptions of each of the organizers’ backgrounds and interests related to pervasive computing and the specific workshop topic.
We aim to select a diverse set of workshops and avoid having multiple workshops on overlapping themes. Organizers of selected workshops will be asked to produce a Call for Papers to describe the workshop to potential participants and solicit submissions. In order to promote vivid discussions with more participants to the workshops, EAI will provide Workshop Organisers with one free registration to the Workshop for every 10 papers submitted to their workshop.
The criteria for assessment will include:
- Relevance to conference vision/topics and attendees
- Potential to bring in participants to the conference from different audiences
- The overall quality of the contribution
- Provides a hands-on, collaborative, and/or active learning environment for attendees
Accepted and presented papers will be published alongside the main conference proceedings as a sub-section/chapter. Paper formats should, therefore, correspond to the templates of the publisher of the main conference. Workshop chairs are invited to engage journals and further publication opportunities.
Workshop proposals should be submitted in a maximum of 4 pages in PDF format, single-spaced.
Please email your workshop proposals to Workshops Chair – Dr. Qiben Yan at [email protected]
