Call for Workshop Proposals


We solicit proposals for workshops that will be held together with the 4th EAI International Conference on Smart Objects and Technologies for Social Good (GOODTECHS18) that will be held in Bologna in 2018, from November 28 to November 30.

In addition to the main conference, GOODTECHS18 will feature conference workshops (8 to 10 presentations) and invites the submission of workshop proposals. The aim of the conference workshops is to emphasize emerging topics not fully or not specifically covered in the main conference. Workshops should highlight current topics related to experiences with the design, implementation, deployment, operation and evaluation of smart objects and technologies for social good.

Presentations delivered during the workshops are based on original papers that have been selected through peer-review process and that have not been previously published. Accepted workshop papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings.
