October 8-12, 2018, Guangzhou, China


The 18th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and
Communications (ScalCom 2018) will provide a forum for researchers willing
to present their original work on scalable parallel and distributed
computing. A workshop refers to an academic event co-located with IEEE
ScalCom 2018. Workshop papers should follow the same Paper Submission
Guidelines for the main conference papers. Accepted papers for workshops
will be included in the ScalCom 2018 proceedings published by IEEE
(submitted to the IEEE-DL and EI index).

Workshop/Special Session proposals should contain following information:

• The title of the workshop including both full name and abbreviation
• The objectives, scope, and contributions to the main conference (up to 1

advertise and special issues of journals), and the expected number of
submitted papers and participants
• A tentative list of program committee members
• The (tentative) website/URL of the proposed workshop

Workshop organizers are responsible for forming Program Committees,
circulating call for papers, organizing submission and review as well as
planning the final program. IEEE ScalCom 2018 Workshop Co-chairs will
assist in organizing workshops and ensure their quality and success. The
registration fees for workshops will be determined by the main conference.
The conference will provide workshop facilities. Workshops should strictly
follow the important dates. The paper submission deadline of Workshops can
be after that of 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.

In order to encourage the workshop organizers, the main conference will
offer the following benefits to the workshop organizers: (1) If a workshop
has 10-20 full registrations, then one full registration will be waived.
(2) If a workshop receives more than 20 full registrations, then its
organizers can choose to get a travel grant (up to USD1500) to attend the
conference, or to invite one keynote speaker for the workshop with a free
registration and travel grant (up to USD1500) for the keynote speaker. The
registrations must be from a workshop’s own received submissions and
accepted papers only, excluding transferred papers from other
