Call for Workshops

Goal

A Workshop aims at bringing together speakers from industry and academia to discuss a timely and relevant topic of interest to conference participants.  Therefore, Workshops may address one or more Tracks, but they should be organised under a unified theme.

Proposal

The proposal for a Workshop should follow the Template, available at the conference website, under “Authors / Call for Workshops” (https://pimrc2020.ieee-pimrc.org/authors/call-for-workshops), indicating the following information:

  • Proposer’s Name
  • Proposer’s Institution
  • Proposer’s Email
  • Proposer’s Phone Number
  • Proposer’s CV
  • Workshop Title
  • Motivation and Background
  • Structure
  • Duration
  • Workshop TPC
  • Previous Editions
  • Specific Promotion

The proposal should be sent to Workshops Co-Chairs via pimrc-workshops@live.ucl.ac.uk:

  • as a *.PDF attachment,
  • as a file named as the Workshop title (abbreviated, if necessary),
  • by the deadline, Feb. 21st, 2020.

Structure

Workshops may include invited speakers, papers, and panels.  The structure of a Workshop is not fixed, and proposers may design it as they think best.  Proposers are responsible for defining the full contents of the Workshop, namely the authors and presenters.

Papers

Workshop papers should be Full Papers (5 pages) and should be reviewed by the Workshop Technical Programme Committee, being done via EDAS (the conference TPC Chair will establish the settings for the review process), which will be used also for the submission of papers.

It is expected that open calls for Workshop papers are launched, in order to attract authors.

All papers should have a minimum of 3 reviews, and it’s up to the Workshop Technical Programme Committee Chair to conduct the review process.  A maximum of 50% of the submitted papers should be accepted.

These papers will be part of the Conference Proceedings and they will be submitted to IEEE Xplore.

Schedule

Workshops will be held in the day prior to conference start, i.e., on Aug. 31st, 2020.

Duration

Workshops may extend for either a full- or a half-day (i.e., four or two conference times-slots, each time slot being 1h30).

Public information

The following information will be made public:

  • Proposer’s Name
  • Proposer’s Institution
  • Proposer’s CV
  • Workshop Title
  • Motivation and Background
  • Structure
  • Duration
  • Workshop TPC
  • Previous Editions

Evaluation

The following criteria will be taken into consideration for the evaluation and ranking of Panels’ proposals:

  1. Relevance
  2. Timeliness
  3. Technical Content
  4. Novelty
  5. Overall Recommendation.

Workshop Co-Chairs will conduct the evaluation.

Registration

All participants and speakers in the Workshops, regardless of the nature of their presentation, including organisers, must pay the registration fee.

Workshop organisers are offered 1 or 2 Workshop & Tutorial Registrations, respectively, for a half- or full-day Workshop, being up to them to decide who’ll benefit from these free registrations.
