======================= IEEE ATC 2018 =======================

The 15th IEEE International Conference on Advanced and Trusted Computing

October 8-12, 2018, Guangzhou, China


ATC 2018 calls for workshops and special sessions which will complement the
research topics of the Advanced and Trusted Computing.

A workshop refers to an academic event in conjunction with ATC 2018. A
special session is an embedded session in ATC 2018, focusing on a specific
research topic relevant to the main conference. Each workshop will be
expected to accept at least 6 papers. Each special session will be expected
to accept 4-6 full-length papers.

Workshop/special session organizers are responsible for forming program
committees, circulating call for papers, organizing submissions and reviews
as well as planning the final programs. ATC 2018 workshop/special session
co-chairs will assist the workshop/special session organizers in organizing
workshops/special sessions and ensure their quality and success. The
registration fees for workshops/special sessions will be determined by the
organizing committees of ATC 2018, which will provide workshop/special
session facilities. Workshops/special sessions should strictly follow the
important dates. The paper submission deadlines could be after that of the
main conference to allow workshops/special sessions to pick up some good
papers submitted to the main conference. However, sufficient time (5-7
weeks), should be allocated for peer reviews. Each paper should be reviewed
by at least three experts in the corresponding areas.

Please email your workshop/special session proposals in PDF format by Feb.
8, 2018 to: the ATC 2018   workshop/special session co-chairs, Xiaohong Li (
