Call for Workshops & Guidelines

Workshop Guidelines

This document contains information and guidelines for Workshop organisers and participants, within PIMRC 2023.


A Workshop aims at bringing together speakers from industry and academia to discuss a timely and relevant topic of interest to conference participants.  Therefore, Workshops may address one or more Tracks, but they should be organised under a unified theme.


Download the Workshop Proposal Template

The proposal for a Workshop should follow the template, indicating the following information:

  • Proposer’s Name

  • Proposer’s Phone Number
  • Proposer’s CV
  • Workshop Title

  • Structure
  • Duration
  • Workshop TPC

  • as a file named as the Workshop title (abbreviated, if necessary),
  • by the deadline, 18-Feb-2023.

Should you have any problem or questions about Workshop proposal submission, please contact Workshop Co-Chairs via email:;;


Workshops may include invited speakers, papers and panels.  The structure of a Workshop is not fixed, and proposers may design it as they think best.  Proposers are responsible for defining the full contents of the Workshop, namely the authors and presenters.


Workshop papers should be Full Papers (5 pages) and should be reviewed by the Workshop Technical Programme Committee, via EDAS (the conference TPC Chair will establish the settings for the review process), which will be used also for the submission of papers.

It is expected that open calls for Workshop papers are launched, in order to attract authors.

All papers should have a minimum of 3 reviews, and it is up to the Workshop Technical Programme Committee Chair to conduct the review process.  A maximum of 50% of the submitted papers should be accepted.

These papers will be part of the Conference Proceedings and they will be submitted to IEEE Xplore.


Workshop organisers are responsible for establishing the Call for Papers.

Workshop organisers may establish a dedicated website for its announcement, but, in any case, it will be announced at the conference website together with its Call for Papers


Proposers will be notified of the decision on acceptance of the proposal by 11-Mar-2023.

Workshops will be held in the day prior to conference start, i.e., on Sep. 5th.


Workshops may extend for either a full- or a half-day (i.e., four or two conference times-slots, each time slot being 1h30).
