Submission information > Invited Session

The program committee encourages the submission of invited sessions with sets of six invited papers on a well-defined subject of current interest. These papers must present original, unpublished work and must not be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere.

An invited session should present a cohesive and comprehensive focus on a topic relevant to the scope of the symposium. It may start with a tutorial presentation which can be allocated a double time slot. In this case five papers are sufficient to compose a session.

Independently from this, the authors of invited papers must also submit their papers following the detailed instructions. These may be extended abstracts rather than full submissions, but must be at least 2000 words long, and convey sufficient detail as to allow an informed peer review. However, full submissions are preferred.

An invited session will be accepted only if the session itself and its contributed papers are accepted. Accepted papers of a non-accepted invited session will be included in regular sessions.

All papers in invited sessions will be subject to review and assessment by the Program Committee, who will select a proportion of submissions for inclusion in the conference program.

How to submit an invited session proposal

Organizers of invited sessions should perform the following steps:

  1. contact potential authors to obtain a list of authors, paper titles and extended paper abstracts;
  2. write a four page session proposal. This should describe the theme and content, demonstrate its coherence, and argue for its significance and relevance. The proposed session should profile 6 specified papers (or 4 plus an extended "double slot" introductory tutorial). At a minimum, the proposal should contain the following information:
    • the title of the session;
    • the name and full contact details of the session organizer;
    • a description of the session theme and an argument supporting its significance;
    • a list of contributions for the proposed session, including titles, authors, and corresponding author of each paper;
    • a brief synopsis of the contribution of each paper;
  3. generate a PDF file of the proposal;
  4. submit the session proposal through PaperCept System.
  5. have the authors of each paper submit their paper through PaperCept System.
