Call for Workshops

Seventh International Conference on Future Generation Communication Technologies (FGCT 2018)
University of Bedfordshire, Luton, UK
August 20-22, 2018
(Technically co-sponosored by IEEE, UK & RI)
(Proceedings and workshop papers will be published by IEEE and indexed in IEEE Xplore and dblp)

The Conference Committee invites proposals from prospective researchers to organize one day workshops during the FGCT 2018.

The main goal of the FGCT 2018 workshops is to stimulate and facilitate active exchange, interaction and comparison of approaches, methods and ideas related to specific topics, both theoretical and applied, in the general areas related to the new communication technologies. The workshops will provide an optimum environment where participants will have the opportunity to discuss specific technical topics in an atmosphere that fosters the active exchange of ideas.
The workshop organizers will be responsible for notifying the workshop, forming the program committees, reviewing and selecting the papers, and ensure high quality of papers. All papers accepted for workshops will be included in the Workshop Proceedings.

The workshop organizers will also have the discretion of editing selected papers (after their expansion and revision) into books or special journal issues. Workshops may be full-day or half-day. A full-day workshop should select 12-15 regular papers, while a half-day workshop should select 6-8 regular papers, from a large number of submissions.
