Call for workshop proposals
Continuing the well-established tradition of this series of symposia, SMARTCOMP 2018 
will provide an international technical forum for experts from industry and academia 
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 itself. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, Internet of Things, Software-Defined 
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;
* if the workshop is going to be organized for the first time, an estimate of the expected 
  number of submissions and attendees;
* a tentative Call for Papers (as complete as possible);
a description of the plans for publicity and Workshop Web site.
