Special Sessions

A special session is a group of 6 papers (or multiple of 6), organized on the initiative of any volunteer proposing NO MORE than 2 papers inside. Special session topics must be in areas consistent with those of the conference.

In order to avoid that Special Sessions tend to draw papers from Regular Tracks, the Special Sessions on Topics not enough specific and too general will be rejected.

List of Accepted Special Sessions

The following is list of accepted Special Sessions and Call for Papers.
You can upload provisional Special Session full papers by specifying the corresponding session in the pull down menu at IECON2015 manuscript submission system.
Notice that the deadline of full paper is the same as of the regular papers.
