Call for Workshop Proposals to CyberSciTech 2016

Cyberization of new aspects of human existence brings continual evolution to the digital world. The physical, social, and mental world will interact closely through the cyberspace in the nearest future. These interactions may bring revolutionary change as well as significant problems to how we understand and use cyber entities. It is necessary that cyber science and technology rise in response to these novel challenges in complexity, safety, security, and many other qualities of cyber interactions.

CyberSciTech 2016 invites workshops to enrich and broaden the research focus of the main conference. The workshops will be focused on (a) new scientific disciplines enabled by cyberspace; (b) latest transformative research ideas, technologies and applications in cyber science and technology, and (c) emerging challenges and issues related to cyberworlds including cyber-physical, cyber-social and cyber-mental worlds. This is a unique opportunity for researchers and industry practitioners to shape the future research directions and share their original research results and practical development experiences related to cyber science and technology.

Workshop proposals should contain the following information:

  • The title of the workshop, including both full name and abbreviation.
  • The objectives, scope and contributions to the main conference (up to 1 page).
  • The short bios of the key organizers and their experience in conference/workshop organization.
  • The procedure for selecting papers, plans for dissemination (e.g., how to advertise the workshops or submit to special issues of journals), and the expected number of participants.
  • A tentative list of program committee members.
  • A tentative website/URL of the proposed workshop.
  • If the proposed workshop has been previously organized, please also briefly describe its history (e.g., number of submissions and accepted papers, attendance, etc.)

Please email your intellectually stimulating workshop proposals in PDF format as early as possible and not later than February 29, 2016 to the workshop co-chairs at Please use “CyberSciTech 2016 workshop proposal” as the email subject. Once we receive a workshop proposal, a decision on the proposed workshop will be made within week. Accepted workshops should strictly follow the important dates, particularly paper notification and camera-ready dates (refer to the rough timeline below).

Important Dates for CyberSciTech 2016 Workshops

Workshop Proposal Submission Due February 29, 2016
Workshop Proposal Decision Within week after receipt
Workshop Paper Submission Deadline April 10, 2016
Author Notification Date May 10, 2016
Camera-ready Papers Due May 31, 2016

Accepted workshop organizers are responsible for forming program committees, advertising call for papers, reviewing submissions and planning the final program. CyberSciTech 2016 Workshop co-chairs will assist the organization of workshops and ensure their quality and success. The congress will provide workshop facilities including the working notes printing, meeting rooms, coffee breaks, lunches, proceedings, etc.

A workshop paper should be six pages and follow the same Paper Submission Guidelines for the main conference papers. Each paper should be reviewed at least by two experts in the corresponding areas. All accepted workshop papers will be included in the proceedings published by IEEE-CS Conference Publishing Services in IEEE-DL and EI index.

Note that each workshop should include at least 5 papers, otherwise it will be canceled. The accepted papers in a canceled workshop may be moved to another workshop, or the main conference track if they fit in with the quality requirement. The registration requirement and procedure for workshop papers will be determined by CyberSciTech Organizing Committee, and the registration fee will be paid directly to CyberSciTech 2016. The registration fee can be waived for one workshop’s main organizer if there are more than 10 accepted papers in the workshop.

We are looking forward to your exciting workshop proposals.


Accepted Workshops

Workshop on Design, Analysis and Tools for Integrated Circuits and Systems (DATICS)
Title Workshop on Design, Analysis and Tools for Integrated Circuits and Systems (DATICS)
Organizer Ka Lok Man, Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, China, et al
Description DATICS Workshops were initially created by a network of researchers and engineers both from academia and industry in the areas of Design, Analysis and Tools for Integrated Circuits and Systems. Recently, DATICS has been extended to the fields of Communication, Computer Science, Software Engineering and Information Technology. The main target of DATICS-CYBERSCITECH’16 is to bring together software/hardware engineering researchers, computer scientists, practitioners and people from industry to exchange theories, ideas, techniques and experiences related to all aspects of DATICS.
