The Information Systems and Technologies research and industrial community is invited to submit proposals of Workshops for WorldCist’16 – 4th World Conference on Information Systems and Technologies to be held at Recife, PE, Brazil, 22th-24th of March 2016.

Each workshop should have at least 10 submissions and 5 accepted papers in order to be conducted at WorldCist’16.
The selection of Workshops will be performed by WorldCist’16 Conference/Workshop Chairs. Workshops full and short papers will be published in the conference main proceedings in specific Workshop chapters published by Springer in a book of the AISC series. Proceedings will be submitted for indexation by ISI Thomson, SCOPUS, DBLP, EI-Compendex among several other scientific databases. Extended versions of best selected papers will be published in journals indexed by ISI/SCI, SCOPUS and DBLP.
