Call for Special Session Proposal for IC4M 2018

The Program Committee of IC4M 2018 invites proposals for special sessions which will be presented at the conference. The special session proposal should be related to any topics of the conference. Prospective organizers of special sessions should post their proposal by e-mail to

(1) Session title
(2) Session description
(3) Expected number of papers (list of authors if possible)
(4) Session organizer(s) (name, affiliation, contact information)

Submitted proposal will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Due to limitation of session slots, please understand that not all proposal will be accepted. For proposals of special sessions that are accepted, the organizer will be responsible for promotion of the special session, coordination of reviews for submitted papers, and moderation of the session at the conference. Procedure, regulations and important dates for papers of special sessions are the same as those of regular sessions, and the papers will be published in the conference proceedings. If the number of selected papers will be lower than 4, the special session will be cancelled and the accepted papers will be shared within the other regular sessions of the area. Please be aware that the conference could not provide any financial support to organizers and speakers of special sessions, such as travel expenses and registration fee.
