25th IEEE International Conference on Enabling Technologies: Infrastructure for Collaborative Enterprises (WETICE-2016)
Paris, June 13-15, 2016

WETICE 2016 Call for Tracks

The International Conference on Enabling Technologies: Infrastructure for Collaborative Enterprises (WETICE) is an international forum for state-of-the-art research in enabling technologies for collaboration, consisting of a number of related conference tracks.

The 25th WETICE edition will be held on June 13-16, 2016 in Paris, France. In this edition, WETICE will celebrate a quarter of century of scientific excellence, academic and industrial success. The longevity of WETICE demonstrates its undeniable success in the scientific and academic community. A unique program is being prepared to celebrate this anniversary.

The conference proceedings are published by IEEE Computer Society and are also available online through the IEEE's Xplore digital library. The proceedings will be submitted for indexing through INSPEC, Scopus, Compendex, Thomson Reuters, DBLP, Google Scholar and EI Index.

WETICE is based on a flexible structure of self-contained and self-managed tracks. Over the past years WETICE hosted tracks on a variety of topics such as adaptive computing, collaborative software processes, collaborative modeling & simulation, service-oriented architectures and cloud computing, autonomic green computing, collaborative verification and validation of systems and services, dynamic network management, collaboration tools for cultural heritage and collaborative web knowledge.

The conference organizing committee solicits proposals for organizing and hosting tracks. Prospective track chairs should submit a proposal for organizing a track, which should include at least the following items:

  1. The title and the acronym for the proposed track with a description of objectives, covered topics and the motivation for having such a track in WETICE. The motivation should compare the proposed event to any related ongoing tracks and why the proposed track differs from them or complements them.
  2. A short description of the activities the track chair(s) plan to undertake upon acceptance of the proposal, to disseminate the call-for-papers for the track through, e.g, track web site, mailing lists, social networks, selected contacts, etc. The track proposers should also indicate the potential audience by estimating the number of people who are supposed to participate to WETICE and attend the track.
  3. A short CV of the track chair(s) with reference to research interests and publication record directly related to the themes of the proposed track, and any previous experience of involvement in the organization of similar events. A link to a personal Web page with additional information would be helpful.
  4. A list of potential program committee members for the proposed track, with name and affiliation for each member and (when available) a link to relevant personal Web pages.

All proposals will be reviewed by the WETICE Steering Committee using the criteria described above. The Committee reserves the right to accept a proposal as is, require modifications, recommend merging with a track that covers similar topics or reject a proposal. Upon acceptance of a proposal, the track chairs will be notified of their responsibilities in managing their track, according to what defined by both IEEE and WETICE conference rules. The Committee reserves the rights to cancel a track at any time if these responsibilities are not addressed adequately by the track chair(s).

Please submit your track proposal as a PDF email attachment to the WETICE Program Chairs:

The deadline for submitting track proposals is November 9th, 2015.

The notification of the decision taken by the Steering Committee will be sent to the chairs of the proposed track before or on December 1st, 2015.

Please contact the Program Chairs for any additional information or request.
Federico Bergenti, Walid Gaaloul, and Pascal Poizat, WETICE 2016 Program Chairs.
