Special Session Proposals

The aim of a special session is to provide an overview of the state-of-the-art and current research directions in specific fields within the general scope of the conference.

To submit a special session proposal, please contact one of the special session chairs, Dr. Neslihan Serap Şengör (sengorn@itu.edu.tr) and Dr. Elena Blokhina (elena.blokhina@ucd.ie).

The proposal should include one page overview of the proposed session containing the title of the Topic and a brief abstract, the rationale of organizing the special session, proposed speakers and their biographies.

Special Session Program

Special sessions consist of five papers, but a minimum of four and a maximum of six papers are also acceptable.

Submission Procedure

Authors submit papers for special sessions through ICECS's online submission system by marking the check box on the submission page corresponding to the desired special session. Authors should follow the author instructions for regular ICECS 2017 papers.

The deadline for online paper submission for special sessions is the same as the deadline for regular papers.
