The IEEE CEC 2019 organizing committee invites proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the main event. The overall purpose of a workshop is to provide participants with the opportunity to present and discuss novel research ideas on active and emerging topics of Computational Intelligence. Topics of the proposed workshops should therefore be aligned with those set forth in the call for papers for the main event. We strongly encourage the workshop organizers to make their workshops highly interactive, and include discussions, Q& A and panel sessions to facilitate a lively exchange of ideas among the attendees.
Workshops can take on a number of forms including but not limited to being organized around emerging research areas, challenging problems and industrial applications. Organizers of accepted workshops are expected to prepare a workshop website and call for papers, publicize the workshop, gather submissions, conduct the reviewing process and decide upon the final workshop program. They must also prepare an informal set of workshop proceedings to be distributed with the registration materials at the conference. They may choose to form organizing or program committees for assistance in these tasks.
If this workshop has been held previously, then the organizers should indicate this and describe briefly past attendance and outcomes, and why another workshop is needed. Prospective workshop organizers are invited to submit their proposals to the Workshops Chair, Dr Handing Wang , by 7 January 2019.
All workshop proposals will be reviewed based on the following considerations:
