Call for Workshops Proposals


IFIP Networking 2020 is soliciting proposals for one-day workshops, which will be held on 22 June 2020 during the conference week. Accepted papers will be published in the IFIP Digital Library as open access and submitted to IEEE Xplore Digital Library.


The main purpose of the Networking 2020 Workshops is to provide fora for research, development, integration, standards, service provisioning, and user communities addressing timely topics relevant to the main conference. Workshops can take different styles, for example, targeting students, specialising on a scientific topic area, or fostering interaction between academia and industry.

Each workshop proposal, in a single PDF file, must include:

  1. Title of the workshop and abbreviation.
  2. Names, affiliations, e-mail addresses, and a short (200 words) bio of the main organizers (e.g., TPC Co-chair(s), General Co-chair(s)).
  3. A brief description (max. 1 page) of the technical issues addressed by the workshop. State reasons why and how the workshop would attract the Networking 2020 audience.
  4. Tentative Technical Program Committee (TPC)
  5. The planned format of the workshop, including a strategy to facilitate lively and interactive discussions.
  6. If applicable, a description of the past events of the workshop, including website address, and statistics of submitted/accepted papers and attendee numbers.
