The full details of the ICCMSO-2018 can be seen at www.iccmso.com
To enhance the Technical Program and focus on specific topics and areas, ICCSMO-2018 Conference will include Special Sessions, in addition to regular ones. Special Sessions can cover topics which belong to a specific track, or multi-track subjects, or novel topics in the technical scope.
High-quality and potentially interdisciplinary proposals for Special Sessions that complement the regular program of the conference. Special Sessions should be focused and provide both an overview of the state-of-the-art, as well as highlights including application of computational methods simulation and optimization for different research area.
Proposers should submit the following information with their submission:
1. Special Session title
2. Name and Affiliation of the Session Chairperson(s)
3. Aim [Short description of proposed field (one paragraph)]
4. Areas of Coverage (sub-themes)
5. Short biography of the Session Chairperson(s)
Proposals will be evaluated based on topic novelty and associated impact, Session Chairperson Qualifications.
Special Session submissions at ICCMSO-218 are reviewed via the same exact process as submissions to the regular program, and papers are expected to meet the same quality standards. For Special Sessions that are somewhat under subscribed (due to paper rejections or limited number of submissions), an effort will be made to identify regular submission papers to complete the session, as deemed appropriate by the conference organizers. If a Special Session is seriously undersubscribed the Special Session may be canceled, in which case the accepted papers from the canceled Special Session will be placed into the regular program.
Composition of Special Sessions
The arrangement of papers in sessions is to be determined by the organizers. In case of insufficient number of papers to make up a session (Six papers minimum), topically suitable regular papers may be considered to be included in the program of the session.
Miscellaneous
Each accepted Abstract/paper must be presented at the conference by one of the authors. The final manuscript must be accompanied by a registration form and a registration fee payment proof.
