Call for Special Session Proposals
IWAENC 2018 will include special sessions that complement the regular program with new and emerging topics of interest to the community of acoustic and speech signal processing. The organizing committee solicits proposals for special sessions within the following technical scopes of the conference:
Proposers should submit the following information with their submission:
- Title of the special session
- Rationale of the need for the special session
- List of 6 invited papers (titles, authors w. affiliations, and short abstracts)
- Short biography of special session organizer(s) that includes complete affiliation, address, and email
Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness and attractiveness of the topic, organizing committee qualifications, as well as the proposed list of contributed papers.
Papers submitted for special sessions are reviewed via the same exact process as submissions to the regular program. In case a paper in special sessions does not meet the expected quality, it will be rejected. For special sessions that are somewhat undersubscribed (due to paper rejections or limited number of submissions), an effort will be made to identify regular submission papers to complete the session, as deemed appropriate by the conference organizers. If a special session is seriously undersubscribed the special session may be canceled, in which case the accepted papers from the canceled special session will be placed into the regular program.
Special sessions may be organized within a track of both oral and poster sessions. Each session will be assigned to either an oral or a poster session by the program committee.
