Call for Workshop Proposals

MOBIMEDIA 2020 invites proposals for workshops of the 13th EAI International Conference on Mobile Multimedia Communications, to be held in Harbin, People’s Republic of China, on July 22-23, 2020.

The aim of the conference workshops is to emphasize emerging topics of particular interest to the conference attendees not specifically covered in the main conference. We are soliciting workshop proposals on any topic of relevance to content feature analysis and coding, media access control, multimedia flow and error control, cross-layer optimization, quality of experience, media cloud as well as mobility management and security protocols. Workshops are a great opportunity for community building and a forum for attendees with common interests. Accepted workshop papers are included in the adjunct proceedings of the MOBIMEDIA Conference.

 

Workshop Proposal Content

The proposal should include a Call for Papers. The document should describe the topic, rationale and objectives for the workshop, the organizers’ backgrounds and bio, and an estimate of expected attendance. In the case of follow-up workshops, please provide statistics from any previously held workshops and a detailed plan (timeline) for conducting the workshop (including any plans for pre-workshop preparation and/or post-workshop follow up).

Each workshop proposal must include:

  1. Title of the workshop, as well as an acronym
  2. Description of the technical issues covered, emphasizing the timeliness of the proposed workshop (not just bullet points of relevant topics)
  3. Workshop Organizers (names, affiliation and contact information)
  4. A short biography of the organizers to make the workshop appealing to the attendees
  5. Planned format of the workshop
  6. Draft Call for Papers
  7. A description of the publicity and promotion plan

 

Workshop Selection Process

Workshops will be reviewed based on several factors, including:

  • The potential for the topic of the workshop to generate stimulating discussions and useful results.
  • The expected interest of the community in the workshop topic.
  • The quality, organization and plan described in the workshop proposal.
  • Relevance to the main conference.

 

Submitting Your Proposal

Please email your proposal directly to the conference manager: lukas.skolek@eai.eu. Submission should be a single PDF file, including both the proposal (max. 4 pages) and an appended CFP.
