Call for Special Sessions
IEEE ETFA 2021 will include special sessions on highly focused topics reporting technical trends and breakthroughs within the scope of the conference.
Rules for organization of special sessions
An individual can be a co-organizer of up to two special sessions. Special sessions are aimed at bringing together researchers from different institutions and countries. For this reason, it is recommended not to submit proposals with organizers from a single institution or from a single country.
Once a proposal has been approved, organizers must:
- Prepare a Call for Papers using this template (in production).
- Publicize the special session and attract quality papers among researchers and practitioners. If the number of papers submitted to the Special Session is less than 6, the papers already submitted will be distributed to the regular tracks for the review process, and the Special Session will not be included in the program.
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 a peer-review process, ensuring that at least 3 review reports per paper are received. In order to be part of the ETFA 2021 program, a number of 4 regular papers should be accepted after the review process. If the number of accepted papers is less than 4, the corresponding accepted papers will be moved to a regular track, and the Special Session will not be included in the program.
