Call for Workshop Proposals
........................................................................................................................
The I-SPAN 2009 workshops provide informal and vibrant opportunities for researchers and industry practitioners to share their research positions, original research results and practical development experiences on specific new challenges and emerging issues.

The organizers and chairs of the workshop shall have full control on the call for papers, forming of program committees, review and selection of papers as well as planning the workshop program.  The chairs must state in the workshop CFP as "Submitting a paper to the workshop means that if the paper is accepted, at least one author should attend the workshop to present the paper. For no-show authors, their papers will be removed from the digital library after the conference." The registration fees for workshops will be determined by the conference (not the workshop itself). The fees will be paid to the conference, and the conference will provide workshop facilities including the working notes printing, the meeting room, coffee break, lunch, proceedings and etc. Any further expense of the workshop such as the financial aid to the invited speakers MUST be provided by the workshop itself upon getting some sponsors for their own workshops. The money from workshop sponsors will be received by the workshop itself.

The proceedings of the I-SPAN 2009 workshops will be published by Conference Publishing Services.
