Call for workshop proposals

IFIP Networking 2021

Aalto University, Espoo, Finland June 21-24, 2021

IFIP Networking 2021, hosted by Aalto University in Espoo and Helsinki, Finland, is soliciting proposals for one-day workshops, to will be held on 21 June 2021 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 IFIP Networking 2021 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, specializing on a scientific topic area, or fostering interaction between academia and industry. We encourage fresh topics and workshop styles.

Proposal Submission Guidelines

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 co-chairs and

    possibly other main organizers.

  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 IFIP Networking 2021 audience.

  4. Technical Program Committee (TPC), indicating which of the TPC members already

    accepted and which are tentative

  5. The planned format of the workshop (including other elements besides technical sessions

    also have a fallback plan in case IFIP Networking 2021 should go virtual.

  6. If applicable, a description of the past events of the workshop, including website address,

    and statistics of submitted/accepted papers and attendee numbers. If the workshop does not have past editions, please provide estimates and explain a strategy on how to reach the targets of paper submissions and attendees.
