Call for special sessions (Deadline for proposals: 6 January 2021)

The IEEE-ISIE 2021 conference committee invites professionals in the area of industrial informatics to propose special sessions to be held at IEEE-ISIE 2021 in Kyoto, JAPAN.

Special sessions provide the opportunity to focus in detail on particular emerging topics, which are not covered in the conference's main technical tracks, and/or to represent a specific progressive area where researchers would like to meet and discuss advances.

If you are interested in organizing a special session, please submit a proposal to the Special Sessions Co-Chair, Makoto Iwasaki (iwasaki@nitech.ac.jp). The deadline for submission of proposals is 6th of January 2021.

Proposal guidelines

Special Session proposals should use the template below, and list the following information.

  • - Title of the special session.
  • - The name and contact information of two or more special session organizers, who are willing to promote and organize a sufficient number of quality submissions to the special session.
  • - Brief description of the area of concern (approximately 100 words), with special focus on specific technical areas.
  • - Topics of interest include (a list of 5-10 special areas).
  • - A list of potential authors and their affiliations.
  • - A list of potential reviewers and their affiliations.

Organizing your special session

Once approved, it is the duty of the organizers to publicize their special session among researchers and practitioners in the field and attract 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 organizing the review process, assuring at least three reviews per paper. This includes selection of reviewers from their peers.

Before starting the review process, session organizers 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 organizers 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 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 technical tracks wherever possible. In case of indication of weakly-organized special sessions, the conference organizers will offer advice, but reserve measures including cancellation of the respective special session.
