The 4th IEEE Smart World Congress (SmartWorld 2018)

October 8-12, 2018

Guangzhou, China

SmartWorld 2018 calls for workshops and special sessions which will complement the research topics of the Smart World.



A workshop refers to an academic event in conjunction with SmartWorld 2018. A special session is an embedded session in SmartWorld 2018, focusing on a specific research topic relevant to the main conference. Each workshop will be expected to accept at least 6 papers. Each special session will be expected to accept 4-6 full-length papers.



Workshop/special session organizers are responsible for forming program committees, circulating Call for papers, organizing submissions and reviews as well as planning the final programs. SmartWorld 2018 workshop/special session co-chairs will assist the workshop/special session organizers in organizing workshops/special sessions and ensure their quality and success. The registration fees for workshops/special sessions will be determined by the organizing committees of SmartWorld 2018, which will provide workshop/special session facilities. Workshops/special sessions should strictly follow the important dates. The paper submission deadlines could be after that of the main conference to allow workshops/special sessions to pick up some good papers submitted to the main conference. However, sufficient time (5-7 weeks), should be allocated for peer reviews. Each paper should be reviewed by at least three experts in the corresponding areas.



In order to encourage the workshop organizers, the main conference will offer the following benefits to the workshop organizers: (1) If a workshop has 10-20 full registrations, then one full registration will be waived. (2) If a workshop receives more than 20 full registrations, then its organizers can choose to get a travel grant (up to USD1500) to attend the conference, or to invite one keynote speaker for the workshop with a free registration and travel grant (up to USD1500) for the keynote speaker. The registrations must be from a workshop’s own received submissions and accepted papers only, excluding transferred papers from other workshops/conferences.



Please email your workshop/special session proposals in PDF format by Feb. 8, 2018 to: the SmartWorld 2018 workshop/special session co-chairs, Manuel Roveri (roveri@elet.polimi.it), Seiichi Ozawa (ozawasei@kobe-u.ac.jp) and Qin Liu (gracelq628@hnu.edu.cn). Please use SmartWorld 2018 workshop and special session proposal as the email subject. Paper Submissions for accepted workshop/special session should follow the same Paper Submission Guidelines for the main conference. The length of a workshop paper submission may be about 6 pages.
