Call for Special Sessions
Special sessions supplement the regular program for PCM 2017. They are intended to cover new and emerging topics in the fields of multimedia. Each special session should provide an overview of the state-of-the-art and highlight important research directions in a field of special interest to PCM participants. Each Special Session should be a focused effort rather than defined broadly.
Special Sessions Requirements
Each special session should consist of about 5 oral papers. The session organizers will be responsible for the selection of these papers. It is encouraged that the session begins with an overview paper on the topic being addressed and that the remaining papers follow up with technical contributions on the topic.
The following information should be included in the proposal:
- Title of the proposed special session
- Session abstract (stating the importance of the topic and the rationale for the session)
- Names and affiliations of the organizers (including brief bios and contact information)
- List of potential authors committed to submit paper (including a tentative title and a 300-word abstract for each paper)
Once the proposal has been approved, the organizers will organize the review process. The organizers send their recommendations to the special session co-chairs for final approval. If a significant number of the papers are rejected after peer-review for an approved Special Session, this Special Session may be cancelled or merged to other sessions. If a proposal is not accepted, papers in that proposal can still be submitted to regular sessions.
Special Session Proposal Due: 31 March, 2017
Notification of Proposal Acceptance: 10 April, 2017
Those who are interested in organizing a special session should submit a proposal with the above requirements by email to one of the Special Session co-chairs, and all the papers in the special sessions should follow the same style as the regular PCM papers.
