Call for Special Sessions Now Available

The CCECE 2018 Call for Special Sessions is available for consultation below. You can also download it.

Proposals are invited that can extend the areas of interest of the conference or highlight specific hot topics within these areas. In keeping with the conference theme of Innovation for a Better World, each special session is encouraged to contain one overview paper that addresses the impact of the topic in the special session on humanity, society, and/or the environment.


Prospective organizers of Special Sessions should submit proposals via e-mail in a single PDF file to no lather than Thursday, November 30, 2017. Notifications of acceptance will be issued by Sunday, December 10, 2017. Note that organizers should not contribute more than one paper in their session. Please include the following information:

  • Title;
  • Motivation, indicating the novelty of the topic, any possible interdisciplinary flavor and links with the conference theme of Innovation for a Better World;
  • Short biography of the organizers;
  • List of six (6) contributed papers, including titles, authors, contact information of the corresponding author, and a short abstract of each contribution.

Evaluation Criteria

Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic and on the qualifications of the organizers and of the authors of the contributed papers as well.

Review Process

The papers in each accepted Special Session will undergo a review process similar to the other regular papers. It is the responsibility of the organizers to ensure that their Special Session papers meet CCECE quality standards. In case a paper submitted in a Special Session does not meet the expected quality, it will be rejected and an effort will be made to draw papers from the regular papers pool to fill in the gap. If too many papers for a given Special Session are not accepted and we are unable to find suitable substitutes from the regular review pool, the session may be canceled.
