WINCOM 2018 will be hosting a series of Special Sessions, and invites the submission of proposals. Proposals should complement the main conference tracks with new emerging topics of particular interest to the community on the latest technical issues related to ubiquitous computing and networking. They could also consist of work done within the framework of a particular international project.
Special Sessions offer a unique opportunity for in-depth discussions, where researchers and industry entities are invited to share their research and development results on specific areas and novel challenging topics. Accepted Special Sessions will be planned in parallel to the main WINCOM'18 program.
Submission and Publication
Papers submitted to Special Sessions will have to be evaluated and peer-reviewed under the very same criteria of the main conference. Accepted papers will appear in the main conference proceedings and will published in IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
Special-session proposals should be submitted by the prospective organizer(s) who will commit to promoting and handling the review process of their special session as Chairs or Co-Chairs of the event.
