Call for Workshops


SBRC Workshops are satellite events that offer opportunities for discussions focused on selected topics, adopting alternative work dynamics to the SBRC main track (which may include presentation of articles, tutorials, lectures and/or panels, etc.). The workshops enrich and complement the Symposium by enabling the treatment of emerging topics, submission and exchange of ideas on ongoing research work, as well as a more in-depth discussion on already consolidated issues in the areas of Computer Networks and Distributed Systems.

For its thirty-sixth edition, the SBRC organizing committee invites researchers to submit proposals for workshops to be held in conjunction with the Symposium covering topics of interest to the Computer Network and Distributed Systems community. In addition to the traditional themes, proposals for workshops that address emerging and/or cross-cutting themes of the Symposium, such as smart cities, internet of things, blockchain, cyber physical systems, 5G networks, serverless computing, solutions for community networks, etc. are strongly encouraged and very welcome.

In this edition, the workshop proposals should be submitted via JEMS. As in previous years, the workshops could last for a full day or half a day, favoring the structuring of the workshops in the most convenient way according to the topic addressed.


Proposals for workshops should include the following items:

  1. Title of the workshop.
  2. Name, e-mail and link institution of each of the workshop organizers.
  3. Brief technical description of the workshop, focus and justification for the subject to be dealt with in the context of a SBRC workshop (max. one page).
  4. Description of the workshop dynamics, including predictions of lectures, panels, tutorials, etc. and/or number of articles accepted.
  5. Preliminary list of program committee members (if applicable), and may include preliminary version of the call for papers.
  6. Expected number of participants and duration of the workshop (one full day or half a day).
  7. Infrastructure needed to carry out the workshop.
  8. In the case of a proposal for a new edition of a workshop previously held in the SBRC, please include:
    1. Brief history of previous editions;
    2. Number of articles submitted and accepted and number of participants in the last three editions.

The evaluation of the proposals will take into account the workshop’s potential to attract participants, produce good results and address emerging topics that are cross-cutting the main SBRC track that interest a substantial portion of the community.

Proposals should be submitted in PDF format via JEMS (track “SBRC 2018 – Workshops”).
