A special session proposal should include:

  • Session title
  • Brief description of the scope and motivation
  • Names
  • Contact information
  • Brief biographical information of the organizers

The template for proposal submission is available here in DOC and PDF formats.

All papers accepted for Special Sessions will be included in the FLINS 2018 proceedings.

The authors are required to submit their papers to a Special Session following the steps below:

  • Submission by FLINS2018 EasyChair Account indicating the name or the number of the Special Session (in the title of your paper).
  • Inform the Special Session Chairs about your submission including the title of paper, author list and affiliation, and the corresponding author.

The session chairs are responsible for the review process of the papers submitted to their sessions via the Easychair. These papers will be peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers. The accepted papers and Review reports must be submitted to the conference committee.
