Call for Workshop Proposals


The SpaCCS 2016 workshops provide vibrant opportunities for researchers and industry practitioners to share their research experience, original research results and practical development experiences on specific new challenges and emerging issues.


The organizers and chairs of the workshop shall have responsibility of the call for papers, forming program committee, review and selection of papers as well as planning the workshop program. The registration fee for workshops will be determined by the conference (not the workshop itself). The fees will be paid to the conference, and the conference will provide workshop facilities including the working notes printing, the meeting room, coffee break, lunch, dinner, proceedings, etc.


The proceedings of the SpaCCS 2016 workshops will be published by Springer LNCS series (Indexed by EI).


Prospective workshop organizers should send a proposal containing the following information to SpaCCS 2016 Workshop Chairs:


 - Title of the workshop (Full name and Abbreviation)

 - Objectives, scope, and contribution to the main conference (up to 1 page)

 - Short bio of the key organizers and their experience on conference/workshop organization

 - Procedure for selecting papers, plans for dissemination (for example, how to advertise and special issues of journals),     and the expected number of participants

 - A tentative list of program committee members

 - The workshop website URL address


Approved workshops should strictly 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 5-7 weeks, for generating peer reviews. Generally, each paper should receive 3 peer reviews.


We look forward to your stimulating proposals and contributions to SpaCCS 2016 workshops. A workshop proposal should be submitted to workshops chairs via email by April 1, 2016: { Raymond DOT Choo AT unisa DOT edu DOT au; mx DOT dong AT ieee DOT org; jinli71 AT gmail DOT com; }
