The IEEE INFOCOM 2018 conference will be held in Honolulu, HI, USA, April 15-19, 2018. In addition to the main conference technical program, the conference will include a set of workshops.


The goals of the workshops are to explore emerging research topics, and to provide a forum for authors to present early research results on these topics. We would like to have a limited number of workshops, with a high quality program dominated by contributed papers. Contributions to the workshops would be for presenting novel ideas in a less formal setting, possibly more focused on a particular topic than the regular conference sessions do. We seek proposals from individuals and teams interested in organizing strong workshops. Each workshop will be a full day, with 4 - 5 sessions of 1.5 hours each, or half day. The dates for paper submission, notification, camera-ready version, and session times will be coordinated across the selected workshops. Papers submitted to the individual workshops will likely be due in December 2017 (the notification of acceptance date of the INFOCOM main conference is November 27, 2017), with the camera-ready version due in February. All workshop papers will be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore as well as various Abstracting and Indexing databases.
