Special Sessions may address one or more Tracks, but they should be organised under a unified theme. Special Sessions are intended to allow projects or any other group of authors to present their own work.
Special Sessions may include one invited speaker, besides papers. Proposers are responsible for defining the full contents of the Special Session, namely the authors and presenters. It is not expected that open calls for papers are launched for Special Sessions, in order to attract authors or presenters.
Special Sessions papers can be either Extended Abstracts (2 pages) or Full Papers (5 pages), and should be reviewed by the Special Sessions organisers. These papers will be part of the Conference Proceedings, but they will not 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 promotion can also be provided, if applicable.
