Call for Workshop Proposals

SMARTCOMP 2024 is the 10th edition of the premier conference on Smart Computing and will be held in Osaka, Japan. 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 2024 will provide an international technical forum for experts from industry and academia to exchange ideas and present results of ongoing research in most state-of-the-art areas of computing, sensing, and communications in heterogeneous application domains.

The Workshops co-chairs of SMARTCOMP 2024 invite proposals for half or full day workshops affiliated with the conference, held in Osaka, Japan during June 29 – July 2, 2024. 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 2024 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. Organizers and attendees should be physically present at the workshop.


Submission Guidelines

Each workshop proposal must include the following:

  • the name 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 pages) including:
    • the technical issues that the workshop will address,
    • the reasons the workshop is of interest to the SMARTCOMP community,
