Proposals are sought from those wishing to organise a special session, consisting of 6 papers, linked by a unique theme. Deadline: 9th December 2016 (extended from 10th November 2016).
The ISIE 2017 organizing team invites professionals in the area of Industrial Electronics to propose special sessions for our ISIE 2017 conference, Edinburgh, UK.
Special sessions provide the opportunity to focus in detail on particular emerging topics, which are not reflected in the list of conference tracks, and/or represent specific working fields where researchers would like to meet and discuss advances.
If you intend to propose and organise a special session, please provide us with a proposal using the two templates for proposal found at the bottom of this section, and including the following information:
Once approved, it is the duty of the organisers to publicise the Special Session among researchers and practitioners in the field and attract a sufficient number of papers.
Papers submitted to special sessions will undergo the same review process as regular papers. The special session chairs of the respective special session are responsible for organising the review process, assuring at least three reviews per paper. This includes selection of reviewers from their peers.
Before starting the review process, Special Session organisers must explicitly declare papers which present a conflict of interest for them. A conflict of interest arises where the judgement of a paper quality can be influenced by the organisers being authors or knowing some of the authors. To ensure independent reviews, this conflict must be marked as such in the submission system and the Special Session Chairs notified so that they can arrange the review process.
A minimum of five accepted papers with authors from at least three independent institutions is required for each session. If a session has too few papers, accepted papers will be allocated to regular sessions wherever possible. In case of indication of weakly organised special sessions, the conference organisers will support the organisers with advice but reserve measures including cancellation of the respective special session.
Please send your proposal in PDF format and the completed Excel spreadsheet to Dr. Juan Jose
Submission deadline is 9th December 2016 (extended from 10th November 2016). Later submissions can be considered on special request.
