Typically, workshops and special tracks focus on emerging topics that would be relevant for the community of digital ecosystems. We solicit proposals that would touch upon interdisciplinary aspects like weaving AI into digital ecosystems and enable cross-fertilization of ideas between academia and industry.
Proposals should be emailed to the workshop’s co-chairs:
- Sadok Ben Yahia, Tallinn University of Technology, Estonia: [email protected]
- Anis Yazidi, OsloMet University, Oslo, Norway: [email protected]
A proposal should include:
- Special track title
- Previous editions of the track (if applicable)
- Estimated duration (one day or half day)
- Names, affiliations, and e-mails of PC chairs; A Point-of-Contact should be explicitly designated.
- Short bios of the chairs including past experiences in organizing events like tracks, workshops, and conferences
- Tentative list of PC
- Main goals of the track

- Preliminary CFP
- CFP dissemination strategy
Should a proposal be accepted, it is expected that the organizers form a program committee, disseminate the call for papers, solicit submissions, oversee the review process, and prepare the final program with the assistance of conference program chairs. The official language of workshops and tracks is English.
Tracks will benefit from MEDES 2023 organizational infrastructure and receive support w.r.t. registration, badges, lunches, coffee breaks, and publication of the special track proceedings.
Proceedings of MEDES 2023’s satellite events will be published by the Communications in Computer and Information Science (Springer CCIS) journal.
Best papers from all accepted tracks will be selected for a special issue in the following journals:
- WWW Journal (Impact factor: 3.0 – Rank: Q1)
- IoT Journal (Impact factor: 5.7 – Rank: Q1)
