Call for Special Sessions: MINES 2009 - Multimedia Information Networking and Security

http://liss.whu.edu.cn/mines2009/

CALL FOR SPECIAL SESSIONS
-------------------------

2009 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
ON MULTIMEDIA INFORMATION NETWORKING AND SECURITY (MINES 2009)
--------------------------------------------------------------

November 18-20, 2009, Wuhan, China

http://liss.whu.edu.cn/mines2009/


Prospective Organizers are invited to submit proposals for Special Sessions 
at MINES 2009. Special sessions
supplement the regular program of MINES 2009. Each special session should 
provide an overview of the state of the
art and highlight important research directions in a relevant field of 
MINES 2009. The special session topics
should focus on specific areas rather than being defined too broadly.

SPECIAL SESSIONS RULES AND PROPOSAL PREPARATION

Special sessions will use the same paper submission portal as the regular 
program. Each special session will be
composed of 5 or 6 papers. At least one author for each accepted paper must 
register for the conference and present
the paper. If the number of papers submitted to or accepted by a Special 
Session is not sufficient, the Special
Session will be cancelled and the papers will be transferred to the regular 
sessions. Each proposal should include
the following information (limited to two pages):

# Title of the proposed special session
# Profile of session organizers (including affiliations, contact info and 
brief biography)
# Scope and Topics (state the significance of the topic)
# Session Committee members (or reviewers)
# Tentative/confirmed list of papers (titles/affiliations/authors) to be 
submitted to the Special Session

(optional).

Special session proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the 
topic and relevance to MINES 2009, as
well as the qualifications of the organizers. Please note that all papers in 
the proposed session will be reviewed
by the session organizer(s) and session committee members.
