Call for WORKSHOP Proposals

The Call for Workshop Proposals for ICTERI 2016 is CLOSED

Besides the main technical programme, ICTERI 2016 will host a number of workshops on topics related to the general theme of the conference. The role of the workshops is to provide a platform for a more intensive scientific exchange amongst researchers interested in a deeper look into a particular topic and as a meeting point for the community.
We call for half day or full day Workshop Proposals which contribute to the enrichment of the ICTERI Track topics:

  • Track 1 - Advances in ICT Research

  • Track 3 - Academia/Industry ICT Cooperation
  • Track 4 - ICT in Education

Workshop Proposals

Workshops should provide forums for discussion among researchers and practitioners on focused topics or emerging research areas. Organizers may structure workshops as they see fit, possibly including invited talks, panel discussions, presentations of work in progress, fully peer-reviewed papers, or some combination. Workshops could be scheduled for a half day or a full day, depending on interest, space constraints, and organizer preference. Organizers should design workshops for approximately 15-30 participants to balance impact and effective discussion.
In order to meet these goals, workshops should address topics that satisfy the following criteria:

  • The topic falls in the general scope of ICTERI 2016
  • There is a clear focus on a specific theme, technology, problem, or application
  • There is a sufficiently large audience interested in the topic

The organizers of accepted workshops have to prepare a workshop webpage containing a call for papers and detailed information about the workshop organization and timelines.

The organizers of successful workshops will be responsible for:

  • Their own reviewing process
  • Publicity (e.g., website, etc.)

The organizers of the accepted workshops will be required to closely cooperate with the ICTERI 2016 workshops chairs and local organizers to finalize all mentioned details and ensure a successful co-located event.

Suggested Structure of a Workshop Proposal

It is recommended that a Workshop Proposal includes:

  • The name and acronym of the workshop
  • The duration of the workshop – half day or full day
  • The abstract describing the proposed workshop for publishing at the conference wed site. The length of the abstract is circa 200 words.
  • The description of the theme of the workshop. The list of the topics of interest. The description of the relation between the theme of the workshop and of ICTERI 2016
  • The types of submissions solicited by the proposed workshop. The proposers are suggested to check the types of papers called for by the Main ICTERI 2016 conference at its website.
  • An estimation of potential interest to the workshop theme and the number of submissions
  • The names and affiliations of the workshop organizers, and of a significant part of the program committee
  • The information about previous offerings of the workshop (if any), including the attendance, the numbers of papers or presentations submitted and accepted, and the links to the corresponding websites
  • Publicity plan for attracting submissions and attendees
  • Important dates

It is recommended that the Workshops operate roughly within the timeline given in the Indicated Deadlines section (above).

Proposal Submission Guidelines

The language of the main ICTERI Conference is English. Workshop Proposals submitted in any other language will be rejected without review.

Submissions should be made electronically in PDF or DOC/DOCX (MS/Open Word) format. The authors should use the ICTERI electronic submission system at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icteri2016 and submit their papers to the ICTERI 2016 Workshop Proposals Track.

Publication of Workshop Proceedings

The organizers of the ICTERI Workshops may:

  • Either publish their proceedings themselves
  • Or apply for the publication of their accepted papers as a part of the ICTERI 2016 Conference Proceedings volume

This has to be clearly stated in the Workshop Proposal.

Previously, the proceedings volumes of ICTERI series were published electronically at CEUR-WS (ISSN 1613-0073):

Presentation of Workshop Papers

Workshop organizers should also explain in their proposal how they ensure that all accepted papers are presented at their workshop. It is strongly recommended that all the papers accepted for an ICTERI 2016 workshop must be presented at the workshop session of the conference by one of their authors. The author who presents the paper must register and physically attend the conference.

For those Workshops who choose publishing their proceedings as parts of ICTERI conference proceedings volume, the Program Chairs of ICTERI 2016 reserve the right to withdraw the papers which have not been presented from the proceedings of ICTERI 2016.

ICTERI Post-Proceedings

The best Workshop papers, among the accepted and presented at the conference, may be selected by the ICTERI steering committee and invited to be revised and extended for the ICTERI post-proceedings volume. The post-proceedings of ICTERI are traditionally published by Springer Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) series.

Other Venues for Post-Conference Publications

Alternatively, the best ICTERI 2016 papers may be invited to be extended and published in the special issues of Ukrainian or International Journals.
ICTERI traditionally cooperates with the two Ukrainian Journals who have confirmed their interest in ICTERI 2016:

  • The «Bulletin of Kharkiv National University VN Karazin» - series, Mathematical modeling. Information Technology, Automatic Control Systems (physics and mathematics, and engineering sciences); http://mia.univer.kharkov.ua/
  • «Information Technology in Education» (pedagogical sciences); http://ite.kspu.edu/en

Abstracts Volume

Additionally the abstracts of ALL accepted papers will be published in the Conference Abstract Volume with ISBN by a local Ukrainian publisher.
