The IEEE SAS 2022 invites professionals and researchers in the area of Sensors and Sensors Applications to propose Special Sessions. Special Sessions can focus on technology trends as well as having geographical focus.
Organization of Special Sessions
Once a Special Session is approved, it is the duty of the organizers to publicize the Special Session among researchers and practitioners in the field and attract a sufficient number of papers. The presence of at least one Special Session organizer, who will act as a Special Session Chair, is necessary.
Papers submitted to Special Sessions will undergo the same review process as regular papers. The Special Session organizer will be involved in the review process of the papers submitted to the respective special sessions proposing at least three reviews per paper.
Before starting the review process, Special Session organizers must explicitly declare papers that present a conflict of interest for them. A conflict of interest arises when the judgment of a paper quality can be influenced by the organizers being authors or knowing some of them.
A minimum of 4 accepted papers with authors from at least 3 independent institutions is required for each Special Session. If a Special Session consists of insufficient papers, accepted papers will be allocated to regular sessions wherever possible. In case of indication of weakly organized Special Session, the conference organizers will support the organizers with advice but reserve measures including cancellation of the respective Special Session.
Special Sessions may include an optional invited speaker. The invited speaker may, but does not have to, submit an accompanied paper. In the case that a paper is submitted, it needs to go through the same peer-review process as any other paper.
Submissions for Special Session Proposals for 2022 are now closed. Information on Special Session paper submissions can be found on the home page.
