Special Session Proposals

As in previous years, WIA2MIS 2013 will again feature a select number of special sessions to supplement the regular workshop program. Each special session should provide an overview of the state-of-the-art and highlight important research directions in a field of particular interest to WIA2MIS participants.

Proposals in the field of audio-driven multimedia analysis are particularly welcome.

Each special session should consist of up to 6 papers. It is encouraged that the session begins with an overview paper on the topic being addressed and that the remaining papers follow up with technical contributions on the topic.

The following information should be included in the proposal:

  • Title of the proposed special session;
  • Names/affiliations of the organizers (including brief bios and contact info);
  • Session abstract (0.5 page approx) addressing why the topic of the session is important and interesting for WIAMIS delegates, as well as the session’s target audience and key message;
  • List of authors committed to submit paper (including a tentative title).

This is a competitive call. Proposals will be evaluated based on the importance and relevance of the topic to WIA2MIS 2013, as well as the qualification of the organizers and quality of papers in the proposed session.

Please note that all papers in the proposed session will go through a review process similar to regular papers, to ensure that the contributions are of the highest quality. Once the proposal has been approved, the organizers as well as the Special Sessions Chair will coordinate the review process.

To submit a special session proposal please email your proposal to Gaël Richard (gael.richard(at)telecom-paristech.fr), Slim Essid (slim.essid(at)telecom-paristech.fr) and Fernando Pereira (fp(at)lx.it.pt).
