IEEE 2015 Workshops and Tutorials:

Proposals for half-day and full-day tutorials and workshops should be submitted according to the following instructions. A "Tutorial" should give attendees concise introductory information on a specific technical area. A "Workshop" can either be for: (1) experts to share recent results through presentations, or (2) experts leading a discussion that will stimulate a more interactive exploration of a topic. Prospective organizers should describe their expertise in the field, and include: (1) title, (2) a statement of objectives, (3) a list of topics, (4) the intended audience, (5) a list of speakers and a brief list of their accomplishments and experience as it relates to the topic. Topics should either be related to the 26 technical areas of the conference (see the Call for Papers), or in emerging new fields and confluence areas of developing interest, such as the Internet of Things.


These should be submitted through Paper Plaza.

Important Dates:

Proposals for Workshops and Tutorials: 18 May 2015

Acceptance Response for Workshops and Tutorials: 22 June 2015

[Note that speakers must register for the workshop.]
