We are inviting proposals for organized sessions relevant to the themes of IEEE/SICE SII 2016.

Organized sessions are specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme. The purpose of organized sessions is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. The accepted papers for organized sessions will be published on IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Please submit a pdf to the PaperPlaza System including the following:

  1. Proposed title of the organized session
  2. Motivation and goals of the session (a brief 2-3 paragraph summary)
  3. A list of possible papers with contributing authors and tentative titles and abstracts
  4. List of organizers (including short bio)

Selected organized sessions will be advertised, meaning that everyone is welcome to submit to it, in addition to the authors identified in the proposals.

The minimum number of papers per organize session is "4." So each session must include at least 4 oral presentations and it is recommended to make a number of oral presentations by the multiple of 4.

Organized sessions' proposals and papers will be submitted via the main conference's submission system following the same guidelines as the regular papers, will be peer-reviewed and will appear in the conference proceedings. If accepted, the organizers of the organize session will be responsible for the high-quality peer-review of the submitted papers according to IEEE standards (2 anonymous peer-reviews). The organizers will be Associate Editors (AE) for the proposed session. They are also responsible to assign reviewers and make judgment proposals of the submitted paper for the organized session.

The proposal must be submitted via the Papercept submission site.

If you have any questions about the organized sessions proposal submission, please contact SII2016os(at)
