The IEEE HPCC-13 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops/symposiums to be held in conjunction with the main conference. Prospective workshop organizers are invited to submit workshop proposals on foundational and emerging topics in areas relevant to this conference. The workshops/symposiums will provide an opportunity for researchers and industry practitioners to share their research results and practical development experiences on specific challenging and emerging issues..


A workshop proposal should include a proper title, an overview, workshop scope, information about the program, organizers of the workshop, a tentative list of members of the program committee, history of the workshop (if held previously by the same team), and short bios of all organizers. Workshop proposals should be submitted to the workshop co-chairs (to one co-chair or to all co-chairs), with the subject "IEEE HPCC-13 WORKSHOP PROPOSAL".


The organizers of approved workshops/symposiums are required to announce the workshops/symposiums and their call for papers, form a program committee to review papers and decide upon the final program. The conference will provide workshop facilities including author registration, meeting room arrangement, coffee break, lunch, etc. Papers accepted for the workshops/symposiums will be published by the IEEE Computer Society and distributed to the participants. All accepted papers will be included in IEEE Xplore and indexed by EI Compendex. The workshops/symposiums with more than 15 accepted papers will be granted with a free complimentary registration for the leading workshop organizer.
