Dear colleagues and friends,

NetSys 2021 is looking for workshops. In case you are interested 
to organise one, it may be a great opportunity. Apologies, if 
you receives this call for workshop multiple times.


Call for Workshop Proposals 
International Conference on Networked Systems 2021
March 8 - March 11, 2021, Lübeck, Germany     

Submission deadline: June 12th, 2020    


NetSys 2021 organizing committee invites proposals for full day
and half day workshops affiliated to the 2021 International 
Conference on Networked Systems. The purpose of these workshops 
is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less 
formal and possibly more focused way than at the conference 
itself. The Workshops are a great opportunity for community 
building and a forum for attendees with common interests. 
Accepted workshop papers are included in the adjunct proceedings
of the Netsys Conference and are published by ECEASST as Open 
Access. We expect all selected workshops to adhere to a common 
paper submission and reviewing schedule.

We are soliciting workshop proposals on topics relevant to 
Networked Systems. Workshops addressing emerging research 
directions in these areas are highly welcome. Both, March 8th 
and March 9th 2021 are tentatively planned for Workshops, 
please indicate preferences in your proposal. 

Pre-Proposal Submission Inquiries
Should you wish to discuss ideas for a workshop proposal, 
feel free to contact the Workshop chairs by email. Please 
see below for contact information. 

Workshop Proposals
The proposal should be prepared as a document of no more than 
4 pages in the official IEEE proceedings format – tighter 
alternate style (Word, Latex) , and must in addition include 
a tentative Call for Papers. It must describe the workshop name, 
topic, rationale and objectives for the workshop, the organizers’ 
backgrounds and bio, an estimate of expected attendance, in the 
case of followup workshops: statistics from any previously held 
workshops and a detailed plan (timeline) for conducting the 
workshop (including any plans for pre-workshop preparation 
and/or post-workshop follow up).

Workshop Selection
Workshops will be reviewed by a jury of experts who will consider 
several factors, including:
- The potential for the workshop topic to generate stimulating
 discussions and useful results
- The expected interest of the community in the workshop topic
- The quality, organization and plan described in the workshop
- Relevance to the main conference
- In the case of multiple submissions on similar topics,
 organizers may be encouraged to merge them

Responsibilities of Workshop Organizers 
The organizers of each workshop are expected to:
- Publicize the workshop with a call for participation via the
 NetSys website and within the respective research communities
- Set up a web site for the workshop containing more details on 
 the workshop, including CFP, workshop format, plans for
 publication (if any), participants, program, etc
- Establish an IEEE compliant peer review process (e.g.
 workshops are expected to have a TPC, and 3+ independent 
 single or double-blind reviews for each paper)
- Encourage potential participants to submit papers and attend
- Work with the NetSys Publication Chairs to include workshop
 papers in the supplementary proceedings
- Work with the NetSys Workshop Chairs to arrange the workshop
- Actively run the workshop

Submitting your Proposal
Workshop proposals should be submitted, no later than June 12th, 
2020 by e-mail with "NetSys 2021 Workshop Proposal" in the 
subject, to *both* NetSys 2021 Workshop Co-Chairs. The submission
