Special Sessions

CALL for SPECIAL SESSIONS PROPOSALS

A special session is a group of 6 papers (or multiple of 6), organized on the initiative of any volunteer proposing NO MORE than 2 papers inside. Special session topics must be in areas consistent with those of the conference and not overlapping with regular tracks.

Any potential organizer (or group of organizers: no more than 2) has to complete the following tasks:

  • provide Special Sessions Co-Chairs a Call for Papers in the proposed format (1 page max in PDF)
  • send a potential list of authors (not less than 10 independent  authors) and invite them to submit if the proposal is accepted
  • send a list of potential reviewers (a minimum of 20) to achieve the review process under the proposer(s) leadership (3 reviews per paper) 

If less than 6 papers will be submitted, all papers will be dropped in different tracks to be reviewed as regular contributions.  

Please do follow the Special Session proposal form (SpesialSessionProposalForm_ICEM2018.pdf). Instructions to submit the papers will be the same as the one for regular papers when a special session will be accepted (go to the Paper Submission).

All proposals should be submitted to the Special Sessions Co-Chairs:
