Call for Workshop Proposals

(Note: The deadline has already passed.)

The IEEE INFOCOM 2012 conference will be held in Orlando, Florida, March 25-30, 2012. In addition to the main conference’s technical program and the mini-conference, the program 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 2011, with the camera-ready version due in February. All workshop papers will appear in IEEE Xplore (and are EI Indexed).

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.

Please include a draft call for papers, if available.

Workshop organizers should send their workshop proposals to the Workshop Co-chairs by email on or before August 15, 2011 (firm deadline).
Notification of acceptance for workshop proposals will be on September 15, 2011.
