Submit a workshop proposal

IEEE FNWF’22 will host a series of workshop featuring topics relevant to the future networks community on the latest research, engineering, standards and business issues. These workshops should provide a sample of the state-of-the-art research in both academia and industry in special, novel, challenging, and emerging topics. Workshops typically include a mix of regular and invited presentations including regular papers, invited papers, as well as invited presentations and panels to facilitate highly interactive sessions. They will need to generate papers (at least four papers for a 90-minute session and eight papers for a 3-hour session). Proposals should be submitted by the prospective organizer(s) who will commit to promote the workshop Call for Papers, assign at least 4 reviewers for each paper, complete the reviews at least 3 days prior to the author notification deadline, and manage the program and session as Chair or Co-Chairs of the event. Proposals should include the following information (maximum five pages):

  • Workshop title
  • Length of the special session (90-minute or 3 hours)
  • 100% virtual, or in-person in Montreal
  • Name(s) of workshop organizer(s)
  • Email of main contact person
  • A brief biography (no more than 200 words per person) of organizer(s)
  • Brief description of the workshop including abstract, scope, outline, importance, and timeliness
  • Planned format of the special session including projected number of paper presentations, invited presentations, and/or panels within the given timeframe
  • Potential participants including program committee members and invited speakers
  • Related topics
  • Prior history of past editions of the special session, if any, including the number of submitted and accepted papers, the number of attendees, etc.
  • A draft of the call for papers

Accepted events must follow IEEE academic best practices regarding peer reviews and paper publication. Papers submitted to workshops will be evaluated and peer-reviewed along the same criteria of the regular sessions. Accepted and presented papers will be added to IEEE Xplore and the conference proceedings.
