ISQED 2018 is soliciting proposals for special sessions from both academia and industry. The proposed special sessions should aim at offering a complementary experience to the regular sessions and are of general interest to the audience of ISQED. We expect that these special sessions will raise visibility on topics of focused interest in particular scientific or application areas, establish synergies, and explore new opportunities. Emerging topics and focuses such as IoT, cyber-physical systems, cybersecurity, big data, and machine learning, are particularly encouraged, but all interesting proposals that are aligned with the core of ISQED – quality electronic design – will be considered.
The proposal should consist of a single PDF file (up to three pages) including the following information:
IMPORTANT DATES (Midnight, US Pacific Time)
| FINAL Submission Deadline
||Oct. 10, 2017|
|Acceptance Notification||Dec. 5, 2017|
|Camera-Ready Paper Due||January 10, 2018|
All special session proposals should be sent to Swaroop Ghosh, Special Session Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals will be evaluated based on the needs of the topic, the qualifications of the organizers, and the presenters of the session. Each presenter of the contributing papers of an accepted special session can submit an invited paper up to six (6) pages covering the main aspects of their presentation. The invited papers will be included in the conference proceedings. For submission instructions, please refer to the regular paper submission guidelines. All special session papers will undergo the same review process as the regular papers. Note that if fewer papers in a special session are accepted, the special session may be cancelled and the accepted special papers will go to regular sessions.
