Call for papers
The purpose of workshops is to provide a more interactive and focused platform for presenting and discussing new and emerging ideas. The format of paper presentations may include oral presentations, poster presentations, keynote lectures and panels. Depending on the number of presentations, workshops can be scheduled for 1 day.
Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers/ maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference and on CD-ROM support.
The role of the tutorials is to provide a platform for a more intensive scientific exchange amongst researchers interested in a particular topic and as a meeting point for the community. Tutorials complement the depth-oriented technical sessions by providing participants with broad overviews of emerging fields. A tutorial can be scheduled for 1 or 3 hours.
A panel is basically a one and a half hour to 2 hours session in which four to six speakers – distinguished members of the scientific and/or enterprise community, briefly present different perspectives/opinions on key issues with the goal of stimulating a lively, controversial and provocative discussion. Panelists are expected to actively debate one another and engage the audience to help broaden understanding of the technologies and issues. Two types of panels are to be considered: Research Panels oriented to the academic community and focused on the discussion of research topics and Industrial Panels oriented to promote knowledge exchanges between academia and industry.
- Open Communications provide researchers and practitioners with a simple and concise, yet exciting and interactive opportunity to present their research, case-studies, novel approaches, techniques or technologies to the conference audience.
- Speakers can submit either a 1-page abstract or a previously published work, which will be screened by a panel of experts including the conference and program chairs. Open Communications will be advertised in the conference program and abstracts will be included in a book of abstracts, but not published in the proceedings.
IFGICT will award 3 Green IT Professional Exam Certifications + Course material to best 3 papers in the conference
