Call for Workshop Proposals

The AISCOVID-19 2020 Organising Committee invites proposals for the workshop program of the EAI International Conference on AI-assisted Solutions for COVID-19 and Biomedical Applications in Smart-Cities.

The purpose of these workshops is to discuss work in progress and explore opportunities for new research related to the use of artificial intelligence, communication, and other computer science/engineering related technologies to aid COVID-19 outbreak and/or similar pandemic disasters. Innovative and potentially interdisciplinary ideas are particularly welcome as the main topic of a workshop.

Important Workshop Dates:

Proposal submission deadline: 8 June 2020
Notification of Acceptance: 16 June 2020
Conference Date: 02-04 December 2020

Workshop Organization:

AISCOVID-19 2020 intends to provide a forum for researchers who can contribute to the current state of the art by reporting results for the AI techniques used in the problem scope of computer networks-assisted COVID-19 and alike diagnosis. The researchers and experts in the fields of mobile Internet, big data, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and other modern information technologies that can build the required online and cost-efficient medical service platforms are therefore invited for contributions.

Following the scope of the main conference, we would like to encourage international teams of organizers from different institutions and disciplines to submit workshop proposals. We aim for a balanced workshop program offering a diverse set of themes. Because of the current emergency state of the world, we would like to emphasize the need for workshop plans that include potential improvements to existing machine learning infrastructures, cloud facilities, mobile computing, and wireless communication infrastructure enhancements as well as evaluation techniques and applications. Organizers are expected to be active researchers in the field in which they propose a workshop. Please feel free to discuss ideas for a workshop proposal by email with the workshop chairs prior to submission.

Proposal Content:

  • Workshop title
  • Abstract (less than 150 words)
  • Name, affiliation, and e-mail address for each organizer, including the primary contact person(s)
  • The potential for contribution: how does the workshop topic contribute to COVID-19 pandemic mitigation efforts and general knowledge creation
  • Workshop promotion: indicate how you plan to advertise your workshop and attract submissions and participants
  • Biographies: provide a short description of each of the organizers’ background and interests.

Selection Criteria:

Workshop proposals will be peer-reviewed by a committee of experts which include the conference chairs. The committee will focus on providing a diverse set of workshops avoiding overlapping themes as much as possible. Organizers of selected workshops will be asked to produce a Call for Papers to describe the workshop to potential participants. The criteria for assessment will include:

  • Originality and technical merit of the topic
  • Motivation
  • Wider interest in the topic
  • Topical link to the main conference

Feel free to discuss your ideas and submit the proposals to:
Workshops Chair – Enver Ever, [email protected]
Conference Manager – [email protected]
