Special Session Proposal Submission Guidelines

Special Session Proposal Submission Guidelines

The Special Session organizers are responsible for the advertisement and promotion of the special session and the conference. Once a Special Session proposal is approved, session chairs will invite papers for the session and handle the review process along with ICBDS Team. Each paper should obtain at least two reviews.

  • The minimum number of papers should be 6 in each special session.
  • Achieving at least 6 accepted papers, the Special Session will be considered successful (and, as such, included in the program). If a Special Session achieves less than 6 accepted papers, it may be cancelled and the papers moved to regular technical tracks or to other Special Sessions.
  • Special Session must consist of papers from at least three different institutions.
  • An individual cannot be (co-)author of more than two papers submitted to the same Special Session.
  • The authors of the Special Session have a special track, with the name of their Special Session in the submission system.
  • The final decision for the acceptance will be taken by the IEEE – ICBDS-2024 Technical Program Committee based on recommendations provided by Special Session organizers.
  • The papers are required to meet the same standards as IEEE – ICBDS-2024 papers and will be published in the conference proceedings, as per the ICBDS-2024 publication guidelines.
  • Organizers of successful Special Sessions will be invited to attend the conference, and chair the corresponding sessions.
  • Session Chair may submit the reviewers list of the special session.
