Special Sessions

Do you want to propose and organize a Special Session?

Please submit your Special Session proposal to: Nassif [at] gmail [dot] com

The proposal must include the title, scope, impact, duration and number of papers expected under the session. A one-page description containing this information is the typical template.

To be formed, special sessions shall contain at least five papers within its scope, with at least two of which coming from authors not involved in the session’s organization. If this minimum number is not reached, the Special Session may not be allowed to proceed.

Papers shall be submitted directly to the Special Session organizers. These will manage the review of these papers. Once the papers are accepted, then the organizers will direct the authors to submit the papers through Edas, and the Technical Committee Chairs will process the acceptance.

Special Sessions will be reviewed and accepted until the Special Session deadline.
