IEEE SOCC2014 would like to invite researchers, scientists and engineers in SoC community to organize focused sessions which concentrate on critical and emerging topics in SoC technology. Each session is expected to have four (or five) speakers including the organizer who provides an overview of the topic area and three (or four) contributors exploring different facets of the chosen topic. We expect that these special sessions will raise visibility on topics of focused interest in particular scientific or application areas, establish synergies, and explore new opportunities. The organizer of the special session is responsible for selecting speakers and ensuring publication quality in the session. If you would like to organize a special session, please submit a proposal to the TPC chairs containing:
- The title of the proposed topic
- The rationale which addresses the strength and novelty of the topic
- A list of contributed papers in extended summary format, and
- An overview paper from the organizer in full version.
The selection committee will choose the special session proposals based on the topic, quality of the overview paper, and the contributors’ qualification.
The selected special sessions will be informed to submit the full versions. The organizers need to ensure the quality of special papers. For submission instruction, please refer to the regular paper submission guidelines (add a link here). All special papers will undergo the same review process as the regular papers. Note that if less papers in a special session are accepted, the special session may be canceled and the accepted special papers will go to regular sessions.
