*** Call for Special Sessions proposal ***

The IEEE/SICE SII 2019 https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.sii2019.org&d=DwIBaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=NyWlAqnAcJ3-TX9AC1TclIg8mj3W1MZNza53JcxlIJw&s=_beFv95L7QwEg0JUwVGf1fw4G9KoqlNb7BrAW9wYMio&e= organizing team invites
professionals in the area of System Integration to propose special sessions
to be held on IEEE/SICE SII 2019 in Paris, France. Special sessions provide
the opportunity to focus in detail on particular emerging topics, which are
not reflected in the list of conference tracks or represent a specific
working fields where researchers would like to meet and discuss advances.

Proposal content

If you intend to propose and organize a special session, please provide us
with a proposal using the template, and including the following information:

- Title of the Special Session
- Organizers of special sessions
- Abstract of the Proposed Special session (approx. 100 words)
- Brief description of the area of interest (approx. 100 words), with
special focus on why we should believe this is an interesting and
significant topic?
- A list of potential paper titles, authors, reviewers and their

Once 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.

Papers submitted to Special Sessions will undergo the same review process
as regular papers. The Special Session chairs of the respective special
session are responsible for organizing the review process, assuring at
least three reviews per paper. This includes selection of reviewers from
their peers.

Before starting the review process, Special Sessions organizers must
explicitly declare papers which present a conflict of interest for them. A
conflict of interest arises where the judgement of a paper quality can be
influenced by the organizers being authors or knowing some of the authors.
To ensure independent reviews, this conflict must be marked as such in the
submission system and the SS chairs notified so that they can arrange the
review process.

A minimum of 6 accepted papers with authors from at least 3 independent
institutions is required for each session. If a session has too few papers,
accepted papers will be allocated to regular sessions wherever possible. In
the case of weakly organized special sessions, the conference organizers
will support the session organizers with advice but reserve measures
including cancellation of the respective special session.

Organizers of a successful Special Session will get a free registration for
each Special Session with more than 6 papers submitted to the Special
Session and included in the final program.
