We invite proposals for workshops. Each workshop should have at least 8 paper presentations. The workshop organizer will be responsible for advertising the workshop, reviewing and selecting the papers. One registration fee waiver will be granted to workshop chairs that attract 8 or more accepted and registered papers. Papers accepted to the Workshops will be published in the ICITCS Proceedings. After the conference, some best papers presented at the Workshops will be considered for publication in appropriate journals as Special Issues.

Submission Instructions

The conference solicits full-day or half-day workshop proposals on new and emerging topics in the areas of IT Convergence and Security. A workshop should focus on a specific theme of current interest that can attract high-quality submissions. A proposal should include the following information:

1. Title of the workshop
2. Significance and timeliness
3. Full contact and a short bio of the workshop organizers
4. Planned format for the full-day workshop with expected paper submission volume
5. A tentative list of TPC members
6. A draft of Call for Papers
7. Advertisement plan for the Call for Papers
8. History of the workshop (if applicable)


The ICITCS Organizing Committee invites proposals for half-day tutorials at the conference. Tutorials are intended to provide a comprehensive introduction to established or emerging research topics of interest for IT Convergence and Security. The ideal tutorial should attract a wide audience. It should be broad enough to provide a basic introduction to the chosen area, but it should also cover the most important topics in depth. Each tutorial should be well-focused so that its content can be covered in a half-day slot.
we expect to offer a waived registration fee to one speaker of each accepted tutorial.

Submission Instructions

Tutorial proposals should contain at least the following:
1. A title and an abstract of the tutorial.
2. A brief description of the tutorial content and its relevance to the IT Convergence and Security(no more than 2 pages).
3. A brief outline of the tutorial structure showing that the tutorial’s core content can be covered in a 4 hours slot.
4. The names and contact information of the tutorial instructors, including one-paragraph statements of their research interests and areas of expertise.
5. A description of special requirements for technical equipment (e.g., audio equipment).
