Call for Special Session Proposals

ISPA 2017 ( welcomes and encourages eminent researchers in organizing Special Sessions in new or emerging areas. We are seeking innovative and high-quality proposals for Special Sessions that complement the regular program of the conference.

Special Sessions should provide an overview of the state-of-the-art, as well as current trends and challenges in the proposed field of image and signal processing and analysis. A special session paper can be a regular paper or an invited paper.

Proposers should submit the following information with their submission:

1. Special Session title
2. Short description of proposed field
Approximately half page, which should include the following:
2.1 Topics covered and relevance to ISPA community
2.2 Explain how does this session complement regular program
2.3 Expected number of papers
3. Short biography of the organizers

The special session chairs will be required to provide a list of confirmed reviewers before the start of the reviewing process. The number of reviewers should exceed the number of expected submissions by a factor of three. The targeted number of papers per session is six (20 minutes each time slot), but a minimum of four and a maximum of eight papers are also acceptable. No more than two of them should be coauthored by the organizers, and at most two invited papers are allowed per Special Session. All submitted papers, including invited papers will undergo a regular peer-review process. Special sessions with less than four accepted papers will be canceled. Accepted papers from the canceled session will be placed into the regular conference sessions.
