IEEE GLOBECOM workshops emphasize current topics of particular interest and can include a mix of regular papers, invited presentations, and panels. Papers submitted to IEEE GLOBECOM 2009 workshops must undergo a peer-review process, and accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore.

Each workshop proposal must include:

  1. Title of the workshop
  2. Length of the workshop: Half-day, Full-day
  3. Names, addresses, and a short bio (up to 200 words) of the organizers
  4. A single name of contact for the workshop organizers towards the GLOBECOM Workshops Chair and IEEE/ComSoc
  5. A draft call for papers, including a tentative technical program committee
  6. A description of the planned format of the workshop, e.g., the number of papers sessions, keynotes, panels, etc.
  7. If appropriate, a description of past versions of the workshop, including the number of submitted/accepted papers, the number of attendees, etc.
  8. An outline of the publicity and promotion plan to attract sponsors
  9. The workshop website address (if already available)

The deadline for submitting proposals is 31 March 2009. Proposals must be submitted through EDAS under the heading of IEEE GLOBECOM 2009 Workshops. Note that EDAS will require registration of the proposal first, by title, keywords, authors' names and abstract. After completing this registration, the proposal in pdf format can be uploaded into EDAS.

Questions should be directed to the IEEE GLOBECOM Workshops Chair, Rolf Stadler,

Criteria taken into account for the evaluation of a proposal include the timeliness and importance of the proposed topic for IEEE GLOBECOM, the track record of the organizers, and the record of the workshop if previously held. Note that decisions on accepting workshop proposals will also reflect space limitations at the conference venue.
