Call for Workshop Proposals


The ICDF2C Organising Committee invites proposals for the workshop program of the 15th EAI International Conference on Digital Forensics & Cyber Crime. The purpose of these workshops is to discuss work in progress and explore opportunities for new research related to emerging topics including the use of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in digital forensics as well as adversary engagement and threat intelligence for cyber security.

Deadline for Workshop Proposals: January 31, 2024

Notification of proposal acceptance: February 5, 2024

Proposal Content

  • Workshop title
  • Abstract (less than 200 words)
  • Name, affiliation, and e-mail address for each organizer
  • Identification of the primary contact person(s)
  • Topics and scope: These should be within or close to the scope covered by the main conference.
  • Background and Motivation: What is the overall topic of the workshop? Why is this topic of particular interest at this time? If the workshop has been organised in the past at ICDF2C or other conferences, please give details of previous instances (venue, URL) and describe why it should be held again and how it will extend and build upon previous ones.
  • Format: Give a description of the proposed workshop format, including the target number of participants, planned activities (such as introductions, invited talks, breakout group activities, general discussion), as well as how theseactivities address the workshop objectives.
  • Selecting Participants: Indicate how you plan to select participants and contributions to the workshop. Indicate a program committee to help with the organisation/review process.
  • Organisers: Give short descriptions of each of the organisers’ background and interests related to pervasive computing and the specific workshop topic.
  • Workshop Selection

    We aim to select a diverse set of workshops and avoid having multiple workshops on overlapping themes. Organisers of selected workshops will be asked to produce a Call for Papers to describe the workshop to potential participants and solicit submissions. In order to promote vivid discussions with more participants to the workshops, EAI will provide Workshop Organisers with one free registration to the Workshop for each 10 papers submitted to their workshop.

    The criteria for assessment will include:

    • 1) Originality and technical merit of the topic
    • 2) Motivation
    • 3) Topical link to the main conference

    Workshop Publication

    Accepted and presented papers will be published alongside the main conference proceedings as a sub section/chapter. Paper formats should, therefore, correspond to the templates of the publisher of the main conference. Workshop chairs are invited to engage journals and further publication opportunities, and cite these in their application.

    Proposal Submission

    Workshop proposals should be submitted in a maximum of 4 pages in PDF format, single- spaced. Please email your workshop proposals to the conference manager
