Proposals for Workshops that examine emerging, innovative, or otherwise provocative issues within the conference AI topics are encouraged. There is no restriction to particular topics of the conference. Especially we welcome novel and multidisciplinary topics with an emphasis on current challenges, theoretical advances and innovative applications.


Workshop proposals should include a 1-2 page summary of the topic and the names and affiliations of 3-4 chairs and program committee members and making clear the primary contact person to whom correspondence should be directed. A mix of industry and academic panel members are recommended.

In the summary the organizers should present clearly:

(i) the motivation of the workshop and its relatedness to the topics of SETN 2020,

(ii) the specific topics covered and possible application areas,

(iii) the reviewing process, and the expected number of participants,

(iv) a shortlist of indicative PC members,

(v) if the same workshop has been organized before in any SETN or related AI conferences, please explain why its continuation is needed.

Proposers are encouraged to go beyond the usual list of presentations of accepted papers, for example by means of invited talks, panels, and demo sessions. Furthermore providing ideas for post-publication of the workshop proceedings to journal special issues will make the workshop proposal more attractive since it will interest more participants.

For more details on the conference topics please visit the SETN 2020 website ( and consult the SETN 2020 Call For Papers.

Please send your Workshop Proposals as a single PDF file to workshop chair Eleni Galiotou (
