Call for Special Sessions

Session Proposal Submission Deadline: Jan 31 , 2017


The 2017 International Conference on Soft Computing in Engineering (ICSCE 2017) Organizing Committee invites proposals for special sessions to be held in conjunction with ICSCE’17. 

Special sessions provide an opportunity for researchers to present results and participate in focused discussions of timely topics on various areas of Soft computing systems as well as their applications and use in Modeling and Simulation domains of all Engineering Disciplines.  They are to establish a common understanding of a certain aspect, to share experiences, to foster research communities, to learn from each other, to identify open problems and/or to explore future directions of research. 

Aspecial session will typically have 4-6 papers.  Special sessions may also have invited speakers, panels or forums, demos, etc.  Special sessions will be fully refereed by at least three qualified reviewers and their accepted papers will be published as part of the ICSCE 2017 proceedings. 

The special sessions are considered part of the overall ICSCE’17 Conference and therefore included in the conference registration.  For each special session, at least one organizer must commit to attending and running the respective special session.
