World Conference on Smart Trends in Systems, Security and Sustainability (WS4 2018)

30 - 31 October, 2018, London, United Kingdom

The WS4 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 and Sustainability community. These Special Sessions may also cut across and beyond disciplines traditionally represented at WS4 Conference. Special Sessions aligned with the conference themes related to “Systems” , "Security" and " Sustainability" are especially welcome.

The organizer/s of the special session will be a Special Invitee in the conference and would be provided with Complimentary registration, International 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 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
  • Contact information for the special session organizer(s)
  • Short biography of the special session organizer(s)

Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic, and the qualifications of organizers and contributors. The balance of the topics across the technical areas represented in will be also considered in evaluating the received proposal. Special Session proposals need to address topics that do not pertain to well-established tracks of WS4 2018. In case, proposals belonging to well-established tracks will be rejected.

Important Dates

Special Session Proposals due May 30, 2018
Notification of acceptance of the Special Session June 5, 2018
Submission Due of full paper for approved Special Sessions July 30, 2018
Notification of Special Session papers acceptance August 20, 2018
Deadline for submission of final special session papers/Registration August 30, 2018

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 WS4 2018 papers. It is the responsibility of the organizers to ensure that their Special Session papers meet WS4 Standards in terms of quality and uniqueness in research work and conduct an effective review process. If, at the end of the registration process, fewer than four (10) papers are accepted and registered, the session will be cancelled and the accepted papers will be moved to regular sessions.

Proposals should be sent via e-mail (in either Word or plain ASCII text format) to the Special Session Steering Committee by May 30, 2018 at the latest.

All Communications are to be made to support@worlds4.co.uk
