IoP 2016 workshops will complement and enrich the research topics of the main conference by focusing on 1) the emerging challenges and issues related to Internet of People, and b) the latest disruptive, transformative research ideas, technologies or work in progress. This is a unique opportunity for researchers and industry practitioners to shape the future research landscape and/or share the initial original research results and practical development experiences of ongoing work.

Workshop proposals should contain the following information:

  • The title of the workshop, including both full name and abbreviation
  • The objectives, scope, and contributions to the main conference (up to 1 page)
  • The short bios of the key organizers and their experience on conference/ workshop organization
  • The procedure for selecting papers, plans for dissemination (e.g., how to advertise and special issues of journals), and the expected number of participants
  • A tentative list of program committee members
  • If the proposed workshop has been previously organized, please also briefly describe its history (e.g., number of submissions and accepted papers, attendance.)

Workshop organizers are responsible for forming program committees, circulating call for papers, organizing submission and review, and planning the final program. IoP 2016 Workshop chair will assist the organization of workshops and ensure their quality and success. The workshop organizers can send the CALL FOR PAPERS to the congress or IoP 2016 Workshop chair. The congress can build the workshop webpage on the conference website. The registration fees for workshops will be determined by the conference (not the workshop itself), which will be paid to the conference directly. The conference will provide workshop facilities including the working notes printing, the meeting room, coffee break, lunch, proceedings, etc.

Approved workshops should strictly follow the important dates, particularly the paper status notification and camera-ready dates (refer to the rough timeline below). The paper submission deadline could be after that of the main conference so that some good papers from the main conference can be picked up by relevant workshops. However, sufficient time, e.g. 5-7 weeks, should be planned and allocated for peer reviews. Each paper should be reviewed by roughly three experts in the corresponding areas.

Workshop papers should be no longer than 6 pages and follow the same Paper Submission Guidelines for the main conference papers. Accepted workshop papers will be included in the proceedings published by IEEE-CS Conference Publishing Services (submitted to the IEEE-DL and EI index).

Please email your stimulating workshop proposals in PDF format by February 19, 2016 to the workshop co-chairs: Bin Guo ( and Christoph Trattner ( Please use “IoP 2016 workshop proposal” as the email subject.
