Call for Special Session
The ICARA 2020 Organizing Committee invites proposals for Special Sessions to be held during the International Conference on Automation, Robotics and Applications in Prague, Czech Republic from 14th May till 16th May 2020. Special sessions complement the regular technical program by highlighting new and emerging research topics or innovative applications of established approaches. The topic of a special session proposal should be timely and compelling.
Special Session Proposals
Please submit proposals (approximately 3 pages) in pdf format by email to the firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposal should include the following information:
- Title and abstract: Propose a title and a brief abstract of no more than approximately 100 words that will allow conference attendees to understand the topic and the focus of the special session.
- Rationale: Please explain why the topic of the special session is novel and timely, why it is relevant to the ICARA community and how it possibly fits within the innovation themes listed above.
- Proposed speakers: Provide a list of all talks, speakers, and co-authors (in each associated paper). Technical sessions are normally expected to have 5 papers. In exceptional cases (like industrial talks, or contribution by particularly renowned speakers) it may be possible to have sessions of one talks without an associate paper or a talk which will have a double-time slot for the presentation. In these cases, please contact the Special Sessions Chairs in advance (before submitting your proposal) to explain the rationale of your request.
- Biographies: Provide a short bio-sketch of the session proposers.
