Special sessions - Call for papers

CBMI 2012 is seeking original, high quality proposals for Special Sessions, to be included in the technical program along with the regular track. Special Sessions are expected to address research in focused, emerging, or interdisciplinary areas of particular interest, not covered already by traditional CBMI sessions.

  • The proposals for Special Sessions should include the following information:
  • Title of the Special Session
  • Motivation of the proposed session, stating its relevance for CBMI
  • Description of the session scope and main topics to be covered
  • List of expected papers if already known
  • Short bio and contact information of the organizers

The proposals will be evaluated based on their quality, timeliness, relevance to CBMI, potential to open new perspectives and/or bring together confluent areas, and further develop the field; as well as the qualifications of the organizers.

Each Special Session will include a selection of five papers. The organizers will take care of attracting submissions, and will chair the session itself at the venue. Submissions to the Special Sessions should adhere to the same style as the regular papers, and shall follow the same timeline and review process. The Special Session Chairs will collaborate with the organizers in the assignment of reviewers to the submitted papers, the quality of which shall meet the same standards as regular papers. If fewer than the needed number of papers are selected, the Special Session will be cancelled, and the accepted papers will be scheduled in regular sessions.

All accepted and registered papers will be published in the workshop proceedings which will be indexed and distributed by the IEEExplore.

Special Session Proposal Submission

Proposals should be emailed in pdf to the Special Session Chairs, Philippe Joly (Philippe.Joly@irit.fr), indicating "[cbmi2012] Special Session Submission" in the subject.
