General Information: CYBCONF-2017 invites proposals for Special Sessions (SS) and Workshops (WS) to be held in conjunction with the conference. The aim is to provide researchers in focused areas the opportunity to present and discuss their work, as well as to offer a forum for interaction among a broader community of researchers. A Special Session will consist of a group of papers in a sub-discipline of all aspects of Cybernetics and applications related to the main topics of CYBCONF-2017. The papers will be required to meet the same standards as CYBCONF-2017 papers and will be published in the conference proceedings, available on IEEE Xplore. Normally, an SS should contain 5 or more papers, and a WS should contain 2 or more sessions (10 or more papers). The organizers of the SS/WS are encouraged to make a plan for post conference special issues in some high-quality international journals.

Proposal submission: Please send the WS/SS proposals (in PDF format) to WS/SS Chairs (please see the contact data below) by 31 January 2017 with the following information:

  1. Title and acronym of the WS/SS,
  2. Short profiles of the organizers,
  3. General description of the WS/SS,
  4. List of topics,
  5. Special session program committee (to be invited and confirmed),
  6. (optional) Plan for post conference special issue:
    • Journal name,
    • Contact of the guest editors.

General rules for the organizers: The organizers will be responsible for the advertisement and promotion of the WS/SS and the conference. The management of papers review will be achieved by SS/WS Committees, using the Conference Management System (a separate track will be provided for each SS/WS). The organizers are responsible for managing the review process. All the reviews should be submitted through the Conference Management System. Each paper should obtain at least three reviews. At least 5 papers should be accepted by SS, and a WS should accept 2 or more sessions (10 or more papers). The final decision as for the acceptance will be taken by the CYBCONF 2017 Program Committee based on recommendations provided by SS/WS organizers.
