Special Session Proposals 

We are inviting proposals for special sessions relevant to the themes of IEEE R10 HTC 2018.

The goal of special sessions is to provide a forum for contributions that are highly specialized in some particular theme, focused on new topics or innovative applications of established approaches. A special session consists of four to six papers, which, for example, addresses a particular theme or consist of work done in some particular international project. Prospective organizers are invited to submit proposals for special sessions by March 15, 2018 March 25, 2018.

Proposals for special sessions are required to contain the following information:

  • Title for the proposed special session
  • Humanitarian aspect addressed by the proposed special session
  • One page summary of the special session including its motivation and goals
  • List of prospective authors who will submit papers to the special session
  • List of organizers (names, affiliations and short bio).

There is a two-page limit for each proposal. Selected special sessions will be announced through the conference and will be open for submission to everyone.

Proposals for special sessions must be sent to All papers will be peer-reviewed and will appear in the conference proceedings. The organizers will be Track Chairs (TC) for the proposed special session track. They are also responsible to assign reviewers and make judgment of the submitted paper for the special session. Papers co-authored by the special session organizers will be managed by other TCs to avoid conflicts of interest. Please note that special session papers will be subject to the same rigorous review process, which applies to regular papers not included in special sessions. The minimum number of papers per special session is four. If less than four papers submitted to a special session are accepted based on the reviewing process, the Program Committee reserve the right to re-assign these accepted papers to regular sessions.

We look forward to hosting your Special Session at IEEE R10 HTC 2018.
