Call for Workshops

The IEEE MASS 2015 in Dallas, USA will include a workshop day on October 19, 2015.

Call for Proposals

IEEE MASS is the meeting point for leading researchers in the thriving area of wireless ad hoc communications, sensor, and actuator networks. Topics of IEEE MASS cover a large range of scientific areas, spanning topics from computer science, physics, embedded systems, electrical engineering, control theory, as well as application areas such as disaster-recovery/rescue operations, hospitals, and battlefields.

Accordingly, the conferences associated with MASS also cover a broad set of scientific topics. Since its inception in 2004, MASS also offers a range of associated workshops which cover special topics and applications in wireless ad hoc and sensor networks. During the last several years, up to ten workshops have been held each year in conjunction with MASS, with some of the workshops already having seen their seventh iteration.

IEEE MASS 2015 will include a workshop day on October 19, 2015. Each workshop will provide an arena for presentations and discussions about a special topic of relevance to MASS. Each tutorial will present in-depth content in a mini-course format aimed primarily at students, researchers, or attendees from industry.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit workshop or tutorial proposals.

Proposals should be submitted in a maximum 2-page PDF file, containing the following information:
•    Workshop or tutorial title,
•    Abstract (maximum 200 words),
•    The topic of the workshop/tutorial and how it relates to MASS,
•    The organizers behind the workshop/tutorial including contact information, and short bio and affiliation,
•    Proposed Program Committee,
•    Planned review procedures,
•    In the case of a workshop what the intended format will be (invited presentations, submitted presentations, panels, etc),
•    Expected sponsorships (if any),
•    Profile of a typical attendee (academic researcher, student or industry participant),
•    A rough estimate of the number of participants,
•    In case the workshop has been previously held, provide information on the conference, date, and number of attendees.

In every workshop room, a video projector will be available for presentations. Please indicate if you require further equipment, e.g. poster walls, a whiteboard or flip chart.
Please send the proposal to the MASS 2015 workshop chair, Raghu Ganti, at: rganti@us.ibm.com. with the subject "[MASS 2015] Workshop Proposal".
