Call for Special Sessions
Each Proposal for Special Session is reviewed by the specific scientific committee. The organizer must have at least Ph.D. Degree or is a Ph.D. candidate.
Note: Non-PhD faculty members and Students can join us as YOUNG AMBASSADORS of the American Research Foundation, please visit the Young Ambassadors Page for details.
Proposals for special sessions are invited by dynamic and energetic special session organizers. One paper of the special session organizer will be published without any registration fee (FREE OF COST) provided session is successful (session having Six or more papers is considered successful).
The aim of a special session is to provide an overview of the state-of-the-art and current research directions in specific fields related to the conference theme.
Special Session Organizer is responsible for providing title and description of scope of session, determining the format of the session (e.g., speakers only, speakers and posters, panel discussion) inviting speakers to participate in the session, providing invited speakers with information about deadlines and other details of their participation and for conveying information about the organization of session to the conference technical committee’s representative.
Special Session Program
Special sessions consist of six papers as a target number (20 minutes each time slot), but a minimum of five and a maximum of ten papers are also acceptable. A special session paper can be a regular paper or an invited paper. Regular special session papers are unsolicited papers submitted by an author. The special session organizer may invite a distinguished researcher to submit an invited paper.
Regular special session papers and invited paper(s) are reviewed by the special session organizer(s). Accepted special session papers will be published in the conference proceedings in the same length and format as regular conference papers and in a special issue of the journals adopted by the Conference after payment of the conference registration fees.
