SPECIAL SESSIONS

CSI Annual Convention - Thematic Conferences

The CSI 2018 technical program will include Special Sessions. Their objective is to complement the regular program with new or emerging topics that are of particular interest to the Systems, Security, IT, Computing, E-governance and Sustainability community. These Special Sessions may also cut across and beyond disciplines traditionally represented at CSI 2018 Conference. Special Sessions aligned with the conference themes related to all thematic conferences.

The organizer/s of the special session will be a Special Invitee in the conference and would be provided with Complimentary registration, Travel and hospitality to participate in the conference.

The Conference would be raising an Invitation to Session Organizer for participation in the conference. *( Only one organizer will be facilitated with opportunity in case there are more than one organizer for the session )

Special Session papers will be published together with regular papers in the Conference Proceedings. For the inclusion of the paper in the proceedings each accepted paper in the special session must be registered for the conference, according with the general registration rules. Proposals for special sessions must include:

  • Title of the special session
  • Rationale of the motivation and objective of the special session
  • Session outline
  • Specific topics of interest
