Call for Workshops

The IEEE WCCI 2022 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main event. Workshop proposals should be submitted by November 15, 2021 using the form at the bottom of this page.

The overall purpose of a workshop is to provide participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel research ideas on active and emerging topics of Computational Intelligence. Topics of the proposed workshops should, therefore, be aligned with those set forth in the call for papers for the main event. We strongly encourage the workshop organizers to make their workshops highly interactive and include discussions, Q&A and panel sessions to facilitate a lively exchange of ideas among the attendees.

Workshops can take on a number of forms including but not limited to being organized around emerging research areas, challenging problems and industrial applications. Workshops may include, for example – but not limited to – tutorials, keynote / invited speakers, contributed papers and presentations, panel discussions, even mini-competitions if appropriate for the content. Organizers of accepted workshops are expected to prepare a workshop website and call for papers, publicize the workshop, gather submissions, conduct the reviewing process and decide upon the final workshop program. They must also prepare an informal set of workshop proceedings to be distributed with the registration materials at the conference. They may choose to form organizing or program committees for assistance in these tasks. Workshops can be half or full-day events depending on the scope and the content of the workshhop.

Proposal evaluation criteria

All workshop proposals will be reviewed based on the following considerations:

  • Relevance of the workshop to the scope of the main event
  • The workshop concerns a coherent and important technical topic of high interest in the community
  • Novelty with respect to other forums, especially with respect to other IEEE WCCI 2022 workshops
  • Likely impact on the target community, including likelihood of strong participation
  • Confirmation to serve as program committee members from high-caliber and well respected researchers
  • Confirmation of a well-respected keynote speaker or a tutorial presenter
