Scientific Workshop

Preliminary Research Work in Computer Science
Workshop Program

Workshop Proceedings

Workshop Objectives

This Workshop is intended for doctoral students, teacher-researchers and researchers who wish to present preliminary work relating to computer science. These are works in progress, including scientific positions or theoretical or practical contributions, for which the authors wish to benefit from feedback from the community, such as state-of-the-art works, which identify problems or propose preliminary contributions in a clearly established context, research that highlights application or scientific challenges, proposals at a theoretical stage providing a point of view on the next important scientific obstacles, national or international projects in the process of being set up or who has just started, etc.

This Workshop is thus a place of exchange, sharing and reflection for doctoral students, teachers at the start of their career and experienced researchers. All scientific, technological, or methodological contributions are likely to be presented, more particularly, and in a non-exhaustive manner, relating to the following themes:

  • Design and implementation of complex/adaptive systems
  • Emerging technologies
  • Internet of things and cloud computing
  • Artificial intelligence and its applications
  • Knowledge and reasoning engineering
  • Distributed Computing and Networks
  • System and data security
  • Distributed algorithms, theory of languages and graphs
  • Dependability, model verification, program analysis
  • Software engineering and software architectures
  • Operations research and decision science
  • Multimodal, cross-platform interaction
  • Image and video processing and analysis: models, methods and applications

This workshop allows you to:

  • Confront your new ideas with other researchers working in your theme
  • Get feedback from the scientific community on your work
  • Initiate or foster collaborations and partnerships between researchers
  • Developing consortia on related or complementary themes with a view to setting up large-scale national or international projects (PNR, Erasmus, etc.)
  • Have a national map of skills in the IT discipline. This mapping could be used to form thesis defense juries, assess and set up projects, etc.

For the doctoral student, and depending on his progress, this workshop will allow him to present himself and introduce the problem of his research work but may also include any preliminary results. For those at the very beginning of their thesis, the workshop will allow them to:

  • Present your work to external researchers and benefit from their feedback and advice to improve it, and possibly submit it to national and international conferences or journals
  • Discover the work of other researchers, in particular doctoral students at the end of their thesis, and benefit from their experiences, on the approaches adopted for the positioning, design or evaluation of contributions
  • Make yourself known and build your research network


Authors are invited to submit a paper of 3 to 6 pages maximum (in English or French) in the Springer LNCS format (LaTeX and MS Word Template downloadable here). Accepted submissions may give rise, depending on their qualities, to 10-minute Oral presentations with support or Poster presentations.

Paper must be submitted in PDF format via EasyChair:
