Call for Special Session Proposals

The Organizing Committee invites proposals for Special Sessions to be held in ICT 2016. A Special Session requires 8-10 submissions that meet IEEE standards in terms of scientific rigour, out of which 4-5 are selected after peer-review. Accepted, registered and presented papers will be published in the ICT 2016 conference proceedings and IEEE Xplore.

If interested, please submit a one-page proposal, no later than January 15, 2016 (extended), via email with the subject line “ICT 2016 Special Session Proposal” to all the Special Session Chairs.

Each Special Session proposal must include the following:

  • Title and topics of the proposed Special Session
  • Brief overview
  • Expected number of papers
  • A tentative Call for Papers
  • Information about the Special Session organizers

Call for Demo Proposals

ICT 2016 solicits proposals for Demos from researchers to showcase their latest prototypes/systems with media, models, or live demonstrations. The proposal should describe the technology that the authors have developed, the relevance to the conference topics, and technical details that highlight the novelty of the prototype. For demonstrations, the proposals should also describe what conference participants will be able to see or do during the demonstration.

If interested, please submit a two (2) pages paper written in English following the standard IEEE 2-column format, no later than February 15, 2016, via email with the subject line “ICT 2016 Demo Proposal”.
