Submissions should be made via EasyChair

Ph.D. Forum – Call for Submissions

The Ph.D. forum will be hosted by the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) and will be organized as a poster session with 1-minute 1-slide oral introductions from the students to get the attention from the audience. The forum will provide an opportunity for graduate students to explore their research interests in an interdisciplinary workshop, under the guidance of a panel of distinguished experts in the field of Computer-aided design and Circuit and Systems for Internet of Things (IoT), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data and Security/Privacy. The Ph.D. forum aims at bringing together young Ph.D. students to exchange their research, ideas, and experiences.


The following two classes of students are eligible: 

  • Students who have finished their PhD thesis within the last 12 months 
  • Students who are close to complete their thesis work.


Submission: A 2-page extended abstract describing the novelties and advantages of the thesis work as a single PDF file via the submission website. The abstract should also include name and affiliation. Submissions should be made via EasyChair

Call for Workshops/Tutorials

IEEE COINS seeks proposals for i) Special Sessions consisting of peer-reviewed papers focused on in-depth treatment on a topic of timely interest to the IEEE COINS audience. Special session papers will undergo the same intense review process as regular conference papers, and submission is not a guarantee of acceptance. The selected papers will be published as part of the IEEE COINS Proceedings; ii) Tutorial Sessions consisting of discussions and summary results about advanced topics relevant to the conference. Tutorials intend to highlight innovative ideas positioned on each field’s frontiers covered by the conference. Tutorials provide participants the chance to explore innovative trends or innovative applications, learn new techniques from experts in the field, and gain knowledge and insights. Typical tutorials run 1.5-2 hours, although longer half-day tutorials (two-session blocks of 1.5-2 hours each) may be considered; iii) Workshops are half- or one-day events that aim to foster active discussion on issues related to specific fields. The typical structure of a workshop will include a number of papers (peer-reviewed) presentations and/or invited talks (without paper submission). Accepted manuscripts will be included in the COINS conference proceedings as workshop papers and will be indexed in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.


All proposals (1 to 2 pages) should be submitted via email to Farshad Firouzi (, Ana García Armada (, Alessandro Savino (, and Amelia Zafra ( Please include the required information indicated below:

  • Title and abstract of the workshop/tutorial/special session
  • Organizers and their affiliations (including short bios)
  • Structure, format, and the expected duration of the tutorial/workshop (for a tutorial/workshop proposal)
  • Planned invited speakers (if any) for workshop/tutorial proposals (it is not necessary, nor a requirement)
  • Provide a sample call for papers (if any) for a workshop and Special Session proposals, the number of published papers (if any), and, if available, a list of prospective authors and contributions
  • CFP Dissemination plan (workshop and special session proposals)
  • Provide the abstract of the tutorial/workshop (for a tutorial/workshop proposal)
  • If the workshop/tutorial was previously held, provide the location (i.e., which conference), date, number of published papers (if any), and number of attendees at the last event


Call for Demos

IEEE COINS is also interested in demonstrations and posters of technology that validate important research ideas or showcase realistic applications. 

Submissions should be a two-page abstract/proposal that follows the IEEE formatting guidelines. There is no need for double-blind submissions (names, affiliations, and email addresses are therefore required).

Submissions should be made via EasyChair


Call for Speakers

Are you an executive, strategist, or professional working in the field of IoT, Big Data, AI/ML, Blockchain, Cloud Computing, or Robotics? If you are interested in being a speaker (without a technical paper submission), please, submit the following information to Farshad Firouzi ( Please include the required information indicated below:

  • Title and abstract of the talk
  • Bio or a brief CV
