Please send your workshop proposals by e-mail to the following addresses:


Each workshop proposal will be evaluated according to the relevance of its topic, the expertise and experience of the workshop organizers, and the workshop’s potential for attracting participants and generating useful results. We underline the importance of active and creative workshops that foster a collaborative environment of interest to both practitioners and researchers. The organizers of accepted workshops will be required to create and maintain a Web site in a timely manner to serve as a workshop information center and to provide a repository for documenting pre- and post-workshop activities.

At least one author of each accepted proposal must register and attend iMETA 2023 in order for the workshop to be accepted and the summary of the workshop published.
