ACII 2017 - Call for Special Sessions
Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction
October 23-26, 2017 San Antonio, Texas

Call for special sessions
The organising committee of the 2017 Affective Computing and Intelligent Interaction (ACII) is now inviting for special session proposals. Interested parties will need to provide sufficient evidence in support of their proposed special session topic explaining why it deserves distinct focus, how it relates to the theme of the conference; affective computing in action, and demonstrate that there is sufficient interest to attract papers on this topic.

Once accepted, the organizers of the special session will be expected to attract sufficient papers to make up one session, 1hr 40min, at the conference even after a rigorous peer review of submissions. Note, if a special session fails to receive an adequate number of accepted papers, the special sessions will be canceled and the accepted papers will be included in regular sessions. Also, at least one of the special session organizers will be expected to attend the conference.

Submission format
Proposals must be submitted as a single PDF file via email to Nicholas Cummins at [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>

Your proposal should contain the following items:
* Title of the session
* Rationale of the need for the Special Session at ACII 2017. The rationale should stress the novelty of the topic and how it relates to the theme of the conference.
* Potential candidates for submission
* Potential structure of session i.e., oral, posters or mix
* Short biography of the organizers

Review process of special session submissions
Papers will be treated as regular papers from both the perspective of the review process and of the proceedings (e.g., length, timeline). The special session will have its own keyword and session organizers will be asked to nominate reviewers.

Key dates for special session proposal
* Submission of proposals (December 15, 2016)
* Notification of acceptance (January 7th, 2017)
* Paper Submission Deadline (May 2nd, 2017)
