The IEEE BigMM’20 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. The workshops aim to explore focused interest areas and provide international forums for researchers and industry practitioners to share their research results and practical development experiences on significant and emerging topics of multimedia big data computing. Workshops for presenting papers from industrial companies and papers on implementations of systems and services are also welcome. It is expected that the proceedings of the workshop programs will be published together with the main conference proceedings by IEEE.
Workshops should cover at least a single session (4~6 regular papers). The organizer(s) of approved workshops are responsible for advertising their workshop, distributing the call for papers, gathering submissions, and conducting the paper review process. Please note that the page limit is 8 pages (excluding a maximum of 2 pages of references) in the IEEE double-column format for workshop papers.
- Proposals for workshop proposals due (round-1): January 15, 2020
- Acceptance notification/feedback (round-1): February 1, 2020
- Proposals for workshop proposals due (round-2): February 15, 2020
- Acceptance notification (round-2): March 15, 2020
A workshop proposal should include the following information in a single PDF file:
- Workshop title
- A draft “Call for Papers” articulating the scope and topics covered by the workshop including goals, relevance to Big MM
- Members of the organizing committee with their contact information, and if available, tentative program committee
- Proposed workshop duration (1/2 or full day)
- If this is a recurring workshop, the organizers need to briefly describe the past attendance and outcomes.
- A one-paragraph biographical sketch for each organizing committee member, describing relevant qualifications, including research and conference/workshop organizing experience
Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic, impact and the qualifications of organizers as well as the quality of the proposed list of potential papers.
