CF Worshops: ITS 2008

CALL for Workshops : 7 different workshops


Since the first ITS conference in 1988, a long road has been travelled by
researchers in the ITS community. To celebrate its 20th anniversary, the
conference returns to Montreal, where it started. This symbolic milestone
will be a good time for looking back at what has been achieved and what is
currently done, in order to face the challenges of tomorrow.

This year, the ITS 2008 conference proudly presents 7 different and rich
workshops. We encourage you to consult each workshop for important dates
and submission guidelines.
