Following last years, contributions are planned to be included and indexed in the IEEE digital library.

Research Papers (4-8 pages)

Novel results in the field in the above mentioned categories related to RIS development. State of the art reports, preliminary results or work in progress are also interesting to this community.

Position Paper (1-2 pages)

Interesting and possibly controversial points of view of technical or technological advancements and approaches to foster a lively discussion at the event.

Papers must be written in English and follow the IEEE Computer Society format found at:

Abstracts, full papers, and camera-ready versions have to be submitted electronically using the conference management tool found at the SEARIS website:

Workshop Format

The SEARIS workshop will be a full-day event. Accepted authors for state of the art descriptions and discussion essays may present their ideas in a panel-like format, depending on the number of papers and topics. Accepted contributions for research papers will be organized in sessions consisting of presentations and discussions.

During panels we will encourage the active participation of the audience. We expect this structure to provide a more focused discussions and a lively environment. Presenters will be asked to prepare a slide presentation of their accepted contribution. The general audience of this workshop will receive the workshop’s program with a set of questions in advance, which will guide the discussion in each topic’s panel.
