Special Sessions Call
The DCIS 2020 technical program will include Special Sessions. Their objective is to complement the regular program with relevant topics that are of particular interest to our audience and that may also cut across and beyond disciplines traditionally represented at DCIS.
Each Special Session will comprise at least three presentations of about 20 minutes each. Prospective organizers of Special Sessions should submit proposals delivering the following:
- Title of the session
- Rationale of the need for the Special Session at DCIS; the rationale should stress the interest of the topic and/or its multidisciplinary features (if any)
- Short biography of the organizers
- List of at least three potential contributions from different authors (including titles, authors and a short abstract).
Proposals should be sent via e-mail to the Special Session Chair by March 1st, 2020.
The acceptance each Special Session will be decided and notified by the Program Committee upon reception, and published in the conference web page.
After Special Session proposals are approved, manuscripts may be submitted to the special sessions and should conform to the formatting and electronic submission guidelines of regular DCIS papers. Papers will undergo the same review process as regular papers under their specific track (selectable at submission time). It is the responsibility of the organizers to ensure that their Special Session papers meet DCIS quality standards. If, at the end of the review process, fewer than three papers are accepted, the session will be cancelled and the accepted papers will be moved to regular sessions.
Special Session Proposals due: March 1st, 2020.
