Call for Workshop Proposals

In the first stage of the Conference we are collecting Workshop Proposals. Workshops are a vital part of the ICCSA Conference each year! If interested please submit a proposal according to the present Call!

We encourage and invite interested parties to

submit a proposal for organizing a Workshop


Workshop proposals will be collected and evaluated as they are received until October 28, 2018 and notification of acceptance / rejection will be sent before November 6, 2018

The Workshop proposals should be submitted from the researcher's home page on the ICCSA 2018 Electronic Submission System. Researchers who have already collaborated with the ICCSA Conference series are already defined to the system, the others have to register to the submission system in order to access it.

The form to be filled will require the following information:


1) Title of the Workshop

2) Name, the affiliation, mailing address and e-mail address of the Workshop organizer(s)

3) Previous experience of the organizer(s) in organizing Workshops (if any) 

4) Name, the affiliation, and e-mail addresses of at least three colleagues of the organizer(s) who can comment on her/his (their) ability to organize the Workshop. The organization of successful workshops in previous editions of ICCSA (at least 5 papers accepted in the Proceedings, minimum no-show up, several discussions and questions during/after presentations), including the participation of the Workshop Organizers to the Conference, will be given priority ranking for acceptance.    

5) Description of the topics of the workshop (not exceeding 100 words) and detailed list (name, affiliation, country) of the Program Committee members and additional reviewers (if external to the program committee)

6) The selected publisher (LNCS) of the proposed workshop. If you are interested publishing the papers of your Workshop on IEEE Xplore, please specify IEEE.

7) A short description on how the workshop will be advertised.


The information provided by the workshop organizer(s) to the Conference Chairs  shall remain strictly confidential.

The Workshop Organizers are responsible for all the organizational aspects including soliciting submissions and providing the details of an adequate number of reviewers for the Workshop papers.  Workshop Organizers are also fully responsible for ensuring that only high quality papers are accepted for publication in the Proceedings and for verifying the correctness of the layout adopted by the authors (which depends from the editor selected for the workshop). They are also responsible for choosing the actual reviewers (at least three) for each paper and for monitoring the reviewing process on the reviewing system, in collaboration with the Conference Program Chairs.

Workshop Organizers (or their Deputies) are expected to attend ICCSA 2019, set the order of presentations and chair their related workshop(s).

Due to their active role, Workshop Organizers will receive some incentives, depending on the number and quality of accepted and registered papers.
