The goal of the workshop is to share understandings and experiences, to foster research communities, to learn from each other, and to envision future directions. Workshops will be held on either Monday, May 8 or Friday, May 12.

Workshop proposals should be no longer than 4 pages in the IEEE conferencepublications format, and should include a summary of no more than 200 words describing the theme(s) of the workshop, a longer description of the workshop activities and goals, the background of the organizer(s), the maximum number of participants, and the means of soliciting participation.
