The aim is to provide researchers in focused areas the opportunity to present and discuss their work, as well as to offer a forum for interaction among a broader community of researchers related to the main topics of DSS-2020. The papers will be required to meet the same standards as the main conference papers and will be published in the conference proceedings, available on IEEE Xplore. The organizers of the workshop are encouraged to make a plan for post conference special issues in some high-quality international journals.
