CALL FOR SPECIAL SESSIONS
In addition to the regular track that covers general/mainstream topics, Healthy IoT 2017 could feature several special sessions that could focus on specific, emerging or underrepresented topics. All accepted special session papers will be included as conference papers in the proceedings. If you are interested in organizing a Special Session, please contact us here
PAPER SUBMISSION within the Special Sessions:
Papers should be in English.
Regular papers should be up to 7 pages in length.
Abstracts should be up to 2 pages in length.
Previously published work may not be submitted; nor may the work be concurrently submitted to any other conference or journal. Such papers will be rejected without review.
A special session is a group of 6 papers (or multiple of 6), organized on the initiative of any volunteer proposing NO MORE than 2 papers inside. Special session topics must be in areas consistent with those of the Healthy IoT 2017 Conference theme.
In order to avoid that Special Sessions tend to draw papers from Regular Tracks, the Special Sessions on Topics not enough specific and too general will be rejected.
Any potential organizer (or group of organizers: no more than 2) has to complete the following tasks:
1. Provide Special Sessions Co-Chairs with a provisional title of the special session;
2. Send a “Call for Papers” dedicated to that special session to Special Sessions Co-Chairs (one PDF page as the one provided in the conference website);
3. Send a potential list of authors to be invited to submit a paper;
4. Send a list of potential reviewers (at least 3 reviewers per paper) to facilitate the review process
If less than 6 papers will be submitted before the end of the deadline, the submitted papers will be moved to regular tracks to be reviewed as regular contributions.
