Call for Workshop Proposals

The 13th EAI International Conference on Communications and Networking in China (ChinaCom 2018) will be held on October 23-25, 2018, at Chengdu, China. ChinaCom is endorsed by the European Alliance for Innovation, a leading community-based organization devoted to the advancement of innovation in the field of ICT. The aim of ChinaCom is to bring together Chinese and international researchers and practitioners in networking and communications under one roof, building a showcase of these fields in China. ChinaCom is being positioned as the premier international annual conference for the presentation of original and fundamental research advances in the field of communications, networks, and internet applications. In 2018, the city of Chengdu, a famous historical and cultural city of China, will host ChinaCom’18. The conference will feature high-quality Tutorials and Workshops, Industry Panels and Exhibitions, as well as Keynotes from prominent research and industry leaders. As part of the conference, we solicit proposals for half-day or full-day workshops.

Organization and Submission Procedure

The aim of the conference workshops is to emphasize emerging topics of particular interest to the conference attendees not specifically covered in the main conference. Each workshop may include a mix of regular papers, invited presentations and panels that encourage the participation of attendees in active discussions.

Proposal submissions should be sent to the Workshops Chairs by email as a PDF file attachment with the subject of ChinaCom 2018 Workshop Proposal.

Priority will be given to proposals that not only address an exciting topic but also promise a creative format likely to generate lively interactions and foster new ideas. Examples include bringing practitioners and researchers together, as well as facilitating multi-disciplinary discussions that can lead to high impact and transformative research. All accepted workshops should implement peer-reviews of accepted papers. Papers will be added to the ChinaCom 2018 Conference Proceedings, and will be submitted for inclusion in Springer and EI Compendex.
