Guidelines for special Sessions

Special Session (SS) organizers should follow the following guidelines:

  • Each Special Sessions should have two organizers, who are from different countries/regions.
  • The Special Sessions organizers are responsible for inviting digests/papers and arranging the peer-review for their own SS, via the VPPC2017 official submission and review platform (the same as that for the regular tracks). The SS organizers will receive a guide on using the review platform. The digest submission deadline is Mach 31, 2018.
  • The Special Sessions organizers should make sure that the authors who register for all the papers in their SS should be from 3 or more countries/regions in order to make the conference and SS as international as possible. Otherwise, the SS will be cancelled, and the accepted papers will be moved to regular tracks.
  • The Special Sessions organizers should ensure a proper number (5 or 6) of papers finally accepted in their SS. In case there are only 4 or fewer papers finally accepted after the peer-review process, the SS will be cancelled, and the accepted papers will be moved to the regular tracks.
  • It is the SS organizers’ duty to inform their invitees of the above rules in advance.

A written (email) approval from the TPC chairs is mandatory before Special Sessions organizers can officially start calling for papers for the Special Sessions.

A proposal (i.e., a draft of the SS call for papers) should be raised by those who are interested in organizing an SS. The proposal should be prepared using this template and be sent to the VPPC TPC chairs at organization2018@ieee-vppc.orgbefore March 12, 2018. As they send their proposal to the TPC chairs, the SS organizers agree to follow all the above rules.
