Call for Special Session

Special Sessions may address one or more Tracks, but they should be organized under a unified theme/topic. Special Sessions are intended to promote outputs from already concluded or ongoing projects or any other group of authors to present their work.

Special Sessions may include one invited speaker, besides papers.  Proposers are responsible for defining the entire contents of the Special Session, namely the authors and presenters. 

Special Sessions papers can be either Abstracts or Full Papers (5 pages) and should be reviewed by the Special Sessions organizers.  These Abstracts will be part of the Conference Proceedings, while the full paper will be submitted to IEEE Xplore.

Special Sessions proposals should be submitted via a specific template, available below.  Proposers should provide information on the Title, Duration, Motivation and Background, and Structure.  Additional information on specific promotions can also be provided, if applicable.

Registration for all participants and speakers in the Special Sessions will follow the standard procedure of regular sessions.

Special Sessions will be held during the conference, in parallel to regular sessions.

Special Sessions will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • Technical content
  • Relevance
  • Novelty
  • Timeliness

The proposal must be submitted from 30 September 2021 until the deadline on 15 February 2022, to  [email protected]   

The name of the file should be the Special Session title (abbreviated, if necessary).
