Call for workshop proposals
Instructions for workshop submissions
Submit proposals at: http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=spw14
Please direct questions to spw-chair@ieee-security.org.

Workshop proposal submissions due: September 13, 2013 PASSED
Acceptance decision: September 22, 2013 PASSED

There will be some interaction in deciding upon and setting up a workshop, but the initial proposal should already contain as much as possible of the following information:
  • Contact information of the workshop organizer.
  • Date (Saturday, May 17 or Sunday, May 18) and expected length of the workshop (up to 2 days).
  • Technical proposal (1 to 2 pages): Topics to be addressed; importance of these topics; preliminary call for papers/posters/contributions; preliminary program committee; proposed review process.
  • Publication policy: Workshop with or without official proceedings; potential publication via web, technical report, or electronic media. If workshops choose to publish proceedings then it is expected that they will use the IEEE Computer Society Press. The SPW organizers will set up a contract with the CS Press that the individual organizers can utilize.
  • Expected number of participants and other local meeting issues, such as the special requirements/equipment for the meeting room.
  • Biographies of workshop organizer(s), including workshop organization experience; particularly SPW organization.
  • Program committee: who has committed; who has been invited; who will be invited.
  • Preliminary call for papers/posters/contributions.
  • EasyChair is the tool used for managing papers and reviews. If you do not intend to use EasyChair, please state the reason.
All workshops associated with IEEE SPW will be under the financial and legal responsibility of the IEEE Computer Society. This has great advantages for organizers, e.g., with respect to risk coverage and insurance, but also brings some requirements. The SPW organizing committee can help you with the following: meeting rooms at the conference hotel, meeting logistics (A/V, meals etc.), Budgeting, registration and publicity. Workshops will be advertised on and hosted on ieee-security.org. The SPW committee will also help with publicity via a free ad in Security and Privacy Magazine and a banner ad on computer.org, email lists of past attendees (those with opt-in), and notifications to press organizations. Workshop organizers have responsibility for maintaining the workshop website, soliciting, reviewing, and accepting papers, constructing the final program, all interactions with authors, speakers, etc. Reviewing should be done in accordance with IEEE guidelines (3 reviews per paper, avoid COI, program chair must review all comments before they are sent back to authors, etc.) If you are interested, we will send you a more detailed list of the responsibilities, meeting room options, etc., and would hope to jointly set up a successful workshop.
