Dear Colleagues, 

We apologize if you have received this call several times

Call for Special sessions ICPRAI’2022 Paris 

June 1st to 3rd, 2022

ICPRAI 2022 is seeking innovative, high-quality and potentially interdisciplinary proposals for Special Sessions (SS) that complement the regular program of the conference. 

We consider two major opportunities:

  1. SS focused on theory of Pattern Recognition and Artificial Intelligence: proofs, new algorithms and models…
  2. SS focused on application area, e.g. cultural heritage, medical applications, remote sensing, etc.

Number of expected papers per SS: 5

Submission procedure

Reasearchers willing to submit a proposal for a special session should provide a proposition in a single pdf file. The submission file should be prepared using the following template and should contain the following information:

  • A title for the Special Session and the names of the organizers;
  • Brief biographies of the session organizer(s) and their contact information;
  • Brief description of the theme and importance of the Session, number of submissions expected  (1 page);
  • Proposal of particular PC committee (name, country, institution/research lab);
  • List of potential contributors and topics of interest.

Proposals should be sent directly by email to the Special Session Chairs: [log in to unmask] and [log in to unmask]

The SS propositions will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic as well as the qualifications of the organizers, the authors of the expected papers and the chosen PC committee.

Guideline for accepted special sessions

Upon acceptance of the special session proposal, the contributed papers will be submitted in the same format as regular papers (see Author guidelines). Organizers should not contribute more than two papers. The papers for special sessions will be managed as special tracks in our easychair CMS. Session organizers will have to invite their own Program Committees and to manage the reviewing process. Each paper will have to be reviewed by 3 reviewers chosen among the specific program committee. The special session chairs with the general program chairs will use these reviews to determine which papers will be accepted for presentation in the conference. 

Important dates

  • Proposal of SS: September 1st, 2021
  • Notification of acceptance for SSs: September 15th, 2021
  • Deadline for paper submissions: December 15th, 2021

We are looking forward to your participation!
