Call for Workshop Proposals


The 8th edition of the International Conference on Intelligent Transport Systems (INTSYS) will be held in Pisa, Italy, on December 5-6 2024.

INTSYS 2024 solicits submissions of workshop proposals. Workshops should be related to the conference’s topics or close ones. The goal is to present novel ideas in a less formal and more focused way than at the conference itself. Workshops should encourage information flow between all the participants, for example, through collective or small group discussions.

The INTSYS 2024 organization will take care of the logistics of the workshops, such as facilities, catering, and the registration process of participants.

Workshop selection

Workshop organizers are expected to:

  • announce the workshop and distribute the call for papers to the relevant communities
  • invite TPC members
  • supervise the review process
  • define the final program of the workshop
  • ensure that camera-ready manuscripts are provided on time

We aim to select a diverse set of workshops and avoid having multiple workshops on overlapping themes. In order to promote vivid discussions with more participants to the workshop, EAI will provide Workshop Organisers with one free registration to the Workshop for 10 and more papers submitted to their workshop.

The criteria for assessment will include:

  • relevance to conference vision/topics and attendees
  • potential to bring in participants to the conference from different audiences
  • overall quality of contribution
  • providing a collaborative and active learning environment for the relevant communities

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.

Papers will be submitted through EAI ‘Confy+‘ system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section).

Workshop chairs are invited to engage journals and further publication opportunities.
