IEEE iThings-2022 invites proposals for Workshops (WS) to be held in conjunction with the conference.
The aim is to provide researchers in focused areas the opportunity to present and discuss their work, as well as to offer a forum for interaction
among a broader community of researchers related to the main topics of iThings-2022. The papers will be required to meet the same standards as
the main conference papers and will be published in the conference proceedings, available on IEEE Xplore. Normally, WS should contain 2 or more sessions (8 or more papers). The organizers of the WS are encouraged to make a plan for post conference special issues
in some high-quality international journals.
Please send the WS proposals (in PDF format) to Prof. Zhufang Kuang (Email: email@example.com) or Prof. Zichuan Xu (Email: firstname.lastname@example.org) or Prof. Pengzhan Zhou (Email: email@example.com) by 07 March 2022 with the following information:
● 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
● Procedures for selecting papers, plans for advertising call for papers, and intentions for organizing journal special issues if possible
● The expected number of participants
● A tentative list of program committee members
● The workshop website URL address if available
● (Optional) Plan for post conference special issue
• Journal name
• Contact of the guest editors
General rules for the organizers:
The organizers of the workshops shall have responsibility of soliciting call for papers, forming program committee to review and select papers as well as planning workshop program. The registration fees for workshops will be determined by and paid to the main conference other than the workshops. The main conference will provide workshop facilities including the working notes printing, meeting rooms, proceedings, etc. Once accepted, the paper will be included into the IEEE conference proceedings
published by IEEE Computer Society Press (indexed by EI) and collected by IEEE Xplorer Digital Library. At least one of the authors of any accepted paper is requested to register the paper at the
Approved workshops should strictly follow the Important Dates of the main conference, particularly the Author Notification Date and the Camera-ready Paper Due Date. The submission deadline could be later than that of the main conference. But, a workshop should have sufficient time, say 5-7 weeks, for generating peer reviews. Generally, each paper should receive 2 or 3 peer reviews.
