Each workshop should identify one organizer as the point of contact. A brief advertisement plan should be included in the proposal.Approved workshops should follow the important dates, particularly the paper status notification and camera-ready dates. The submission deadline could be later than that of the main conference. But a workshop should have sufficient time, say 4-6 weeks, for generating peer reviews. Generally, each paper should receive 3 peer reviews. Proposals should be sent via email to all workshops chairs. Enquiries can also be sent to any one of the workshops chairs.
