Call for Workshops

Proposals for Workshops are invited in the following Tracks (a full list of topics is available here):

  • PHY - Physical Layer and Fundamentals
  • WIN - Wireless Networks
  • OPN - Optical Networks
  • NET - Networking
  • APS - Applications and Services
  • TER - Testbeds & Experimental Research


Workshops may address one or more Tracks, but they should be organised under a unified theme.


Workshops may include invited speakers, papers, and panels. The structure of workshops is not fixed, and proponents may design it as they think best.


Workshop papers should be reviewed by the Workshop Technical Programme Committee. These papers will be part of the Conference Proceedings (if the authors wish to do so), but they will not be uploaded to IEEE Xplore.

Workshops may extend for either a full- or a half-day. They will be held in the day previous to conference start, i.e., June 23rd, 2014.


Workshop proposals were submitted via a specific template, available here. Proponents should provide information on the Title, Duration, Motivation and Background, Structure, and associated Technical Programme Committee. Additional information on previous editions or promotion plans can also be provided, if applicable.


The PDF of the call for workshops can be found here.
