Call for workshop proposals
Continuing the well-established tradition of this series of symposia,
will provide an international technical forum for experts from industry and
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

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, Internet of Things,
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;
