International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design (ISQED)

ISQED 2022 Call for Special Sessions

ISQED 2022 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 scientific or application areas, establish synergies, and explore new opportunities. Emerging topics and focuses such as IoT, autonomous systems, wearable electronics, quantum computing, nano-electronic systems and machine learning are particularly encouraged, but all interesting proposals that are aligned with the core of ISQED – quality electronic design – will be considered.

Proposals are requested in the following areas:

IMPORTANT DATES (Midnight, US Pacific Time)

Extended Submission Deadline
Oct. 15, 2021
Acceptance Notification Dec. 22, 2021
Camera-Ready Paper Due Feb. 7, 2022


All special session proposals should be sent to Special Session Chair, at 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.If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact:
