Call for workshop proposals
Continuing the well-established tradition of this series of symposia,
SMARTCOMP 2018 will provide an international technical forum for experts
from industry and academia to exchange ideas and present results of
on-going research in most state-of-the-art areas of computers and
communications. This year, special focus will be on the challenging
issues related to all the opportunities of computing, sensing and
communication in the era of the integration of Internet of Things, Cloud
Computing, and Big Data.

The Workshops Committee of SMARTCOMP 2018 invites proposals for half or
full day workshops affiliated with the conference, on topics of interest
to SMARTCOMP 2018 attendees. The purpose of these workshops is to create
new opportunities for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and
possibly more sharply focused way than at the conference itself.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, Internet of Things,
Software-Defined Networking, Big Data, Cloud Computing, M2M
communications and Smart Grid. Papers presented in the SMARTCOMP 2018
workshops will be included in the conference proceedings and submitted
for publication in IEEE Xplore.

Submission Guidelines
Each workshop proposal must include the following:
* the name of the workshop;
* the names, addresses, and short bios of the organizers;
* a brief description (up to one page long) of the technical issues that
the workshop’s focus will be on, and the reasons why the workshop is of
interest at this time;
* the names of potential Program Committee members;
* the planned format of the workshop, including a strategy to facilitate
lively discussions and involvement of the attendees;
* if a keynote speech is included in the planned format of the workshop,
the name(s) of the potential keynote speaker(s);
* if applicable, a description of past versions of the workshop,
including dates, organizers, number of submitted and accepted papers,
and number of attendees;
* if the workshop is going to be organized for the first time, an
estimate of the expected number of submissions and attendees;
* a tentative Call for Papers (as complete as possible);
* a description of the plans for publicity and Workshop Web site.
