A special session is one that addresses specific topics of high current interest. These may include an emerging technology, or one that is of particular interest to the region in which the symposium is being held.
Special sessions proposals will be accepted and reviewed by the EMC2012 Technical Committee. Accepted Special Sessions will cover a variety of topics. Note that all special session papers must meet the same requirements as regular technical session papers. They must be original works and are fully peer reviewed.
If any paper is deemed unsuitable it will not be published, if there are a number of papers in session that fail to meet the criteria the session may be have to be withdrawn.
Proposals for special sessions will be accepted from November 1, 2011, until January 15, 2012.
Late proposals will not be accepted.
Notification of acceptance decision will be made by February 15, 2012.
Presentation materials from all presenters are due no later than April 30, 2012.
For details on submitting a proposal see the Call for Special Sessions.
