ICASSP 2017 - Call for Special Session Proposals

2017 IEEE International Conference on Acoustics, Speech, and Signal Processing (ICASSP 2017) New Orleans, USA March 5-9, 2017



The ICASSP 2017 technical program will include Special Sessions. Their objective is to complement the regular program with new or emerging topics of particular interest to the signal processing community. The aim of a special session is to provide an overview of the state-of-the-art, as well as to highlight current research directions and challenges in specific fields of signal processing.

Prospective organizers of Special Sessions should submit proposals
-Motivation, indicating the novelty of the topic and any possible interdisciplinary flavor (one to two paragraphs at most) -Short biography of the organizers -List of six (6) contributed papers (including titles, authors, contact information of the corresponding author, and a short abstract of each contribution). Organizers should not contribute more than one paper.

Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic as well as on the qualifications of the organizers and the authors of the contributed papers.

-Special-Session Proposals due: *July 11, 2016* -Notification of Acceptance of Special Sessions: *August 15, 2016* -Submission of full five-page papers for approved Special Sessions:
*September 12, 2016*

The papers in each accepted Special Session will undergo a review process identical to that of regular papers. It is the responsibility of the organizers to ensure that their Special-Session papers meet ICASSP quality standards. In case a paper in a Special Session does not meet the expected quality, it will be rejected, and an effort will be made to draw papers from the regular-submission process to fill the gap. If too few papers for a given Special Session are accepted in the review process, and we are unable to find suitable substitutes from the regular review pool, the Special Session may be canceled - in such a case, the accepted papers from a canceled Special Session will be placed into the regular program.

Proposals and inquiries should be sent via e-mail in PDF to the Special Sessions chairs, James E. Fowler and Akihiho Sugiyana (email:
specialsessions@ieee-icassp2017.org), by the *July 11, 2016* deadline.
