SMARTCOMP 2023 -- Call for Workshops Proposal
June 26-30, 2023, Nashville, Tennessee

SMARTCOMP 2023 is the 9th edition of the premier conference on Smart Computing and will be
held in Nashville, Tennessee, hosted by Vanderbilt University, hopefully as a fully in
presence event.

Smart Computing is a multidisciplinary domain based on the synergistic influence of
advances in sensor-based technologies, Internet of Things, cyber-physical systems,
edge computing, big data analytics, machine learning, cognitive computing, and
artificial intelligence. Applications of smart computing can be found in different
societal domains including, but not limited to, transportation, energy, environmental protection,
smart and connected communities, healthcare, banking, industrial systems, entertainment, and social media.
SMARTCOMP 2023 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 computing, sensing, and communications in heterogeneous
application domains.

The Workshops co-chairs of SMARTCOMP 2023 invite proposals for half or full day workshops
affiliated with the conference, held in Nashville, Tennessee during June 26-30, 2023.
The purpose of the workshops is to stimulate discussions on state-of-the-art, emerging,
visionary, and also controversial topics in the area of Smart Computing, and to create new
opportunities for attendees' interactions in a less formal and more sharply focused context
than at the conference itself. Therefore, workshops should be organized to promote lively
interactions, and appropriate plans should be described in the written workshop proposals.
Papers presented in the SMARTCOMP 2023 workshops will be included in the conference proceedings
and in IEEE Xplore.

The organizers of the accepted workshops are required to publicize the workshop through
disseminating the call for papers, soliciting submissions, organizing the review process,
and deciding upon the final workshop program. At least one organizer should be physically
present at the workshop in the case of SMARTCOMP will take place at least partially in
presence and there will be no travel restrictions due to the pandemic situation.

Each workshop proposal must include the following:
   * the title and acronym of the workshop;
   * the names, addresses, and short bios of up to 200 words for each organizer;
     workshops may have up to three organizers. It is strongly recommended that organizers
     belong to at least two different institutions.
   * A brief description (up to 2 page) including:
     o the technical issues that the workshop will address,
     o the reasons the workshop is of interest to the SMARTCOMP community,
     o a short discussion on other available workshops and conferences on similar topics
       and an outline of why the proposed workshop is unique;
     o a description of the communities groups the workshop aims to attract,
     o the names of potential Program Committee members;
     o the planned format of the workshop (e.g., keynotes, paper presentations, posters, demos)
       and duration (e.g., one-day, half-day), including a strategy to facilitate lively
       discussions and involvement of the attendees - possibly in an online or hybrid format;
     o if applicable, a description of past versions of the workshop, including dates,
       organizers, number of submitted and accepted papers, and number of attendees;
     o if the workshop is going to be organized for the first time, an estimate of the expected
       number of submissions and attendees;
     o a tentative Call for Papers (as complete as possible);
     o a description of the plans for publicity and workshop Website.

Workshop proposals should be submitted, no later than November 15, 2022, in PDF format by email to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> with the subject line "SMARTCOMP 2023 Workshop Proposal" .
