Call for SMC 2023 Half-Day and Full-Day Workshops

The 2023 IEEE International Conference on Systems, Man, and Cybernetics (SMC 2023) is the flagship conference of the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society. Proposals for Workshops within SMC 2023 are solicited to help bring together the SMC community within emerging, active, and well-defined areas under the broad domains of systems, human-machine interactions, and cybernetics. Proposals with content or presentation formats (e.g., abstracts and posters, panels, roundtables) that are not found within the main SMC 2023 conference are encouraged. Workshop proposals should discuss how the workshop will be organized, how the organizers plan to attract active participation of the attendees, promote discussion on the selected topic, and if applicable, describe how invited speakers will contribute to the enhancement of the workshop. Active participation and/or endorsement from one or more SMC Technical Committees (TC) is encouraged.

Proposals for half-day or full-day workshops are welcome. Half-day workshops are expected to have between 8 and 12 presentations (full papers and/or abstracts) and full-day workshops between 15 and 20 presentations. Full papers (up to six pages) will undergo the same peer-review process as all other SMC 2023 papers and an approximate 60% acceptance rate is expected. Accepted and presented papers will appear in the conference proceedings and in IEEE Xplore. Abstracts (1-page) will be reviewed only by the workshop organizers and will not appear on IEEE Xplore. They will be published, however, on the Workshop website. Workshops are planned to take place on October 1, 2023.

The Workshops Committee will evaluate proposals based on the following criteria:

(i) importance of the topic and timeliness of the proposed workshop,

(ii) event’s format and likelihood of creating an engaging intellectual environment,

(iii) quality of the invited speakers and the experience of the organizers.
