The IEEE DySPAN 2018 conference will be held in Seoul, South Korea, October 22-25, 2018. In addition to the main conference's technical program, the conference will include a set of workshops. The goal of the workshops is to explore emerging research topics, and to provide a forum for authors to present early research results on these topics. We would like to have a limited number of workshops, with a high quality program dominated by contributed papers. Contributions to the workshops would be for presenting novel ideas in a less formal setting, possibly more focused on a particular topic than the regular conference sessions do. We seek proposals from individuals and teams interested in organizing strong workshops. Each workshop may preferably include a short tutorial talk (for instance, 40 or 60 minutes) at its beginning.
