Call for Special Sessions

The MWSCAS 2016 technical program will include Special Sessions. Their objective is to complement the regular program with new or emerging topics of particular interest to the circuits and systems community that may also cut across and beyond disciplines traditionally represented at MWSCAS.

Prospective organizers of Special Sessions should submit proposals using the following template (click to download). All requested information in the template must be provided.

Proposals are due on the date shown under “Important Dates” on the MWSCAS 2016 web site and should be submitted via email to the special session chairs using the template above (as a single PDF or WORD formats). Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic, the qualifications of the organizer(s) and the authors of the papers proposed in the session. Sessions dealing with emerging technologies or sessions whose subjects are at the crossroad of other circuits and systems (CAS) fields will be preferred. International representation of the contributors in a special session is desired. Sessions in which two or more papers are authored by the same person(s) will not be accepted. In its decision, the committee will try to realize a balance of the topics across the technical areas represented in CAS.

Notification of acceptance will be sent to the organizers by the date shown under “Important Dates” on the MWSCAS 2016 web site. Authors of papers included in successful proposals should submit a manuscript on or before the date shown under “Important Dates” on the MWSCAS 2016 web site. Manuscripts should conform to the formatting and electronic submission guidelines of regular MWSCAS papers. They will also go through the same review process. It is the responsibility of the organizers to ensure that their Special Session meets the MWSCAS quality standards. If, at the end of the review process, less than four (4) papers are accepted, the session will be cancelled and the accepted papers will be moved to regular sessions.
