Call for Special Sessions

The WCGO 2019 invites proposals for Workshops & Special Sessions to be held during the conference. They intend to provide researchers in focused areas the opportunity to present and discuss their work, as well as to offer a forum for interaction among a broader community of researchers. A Special Session or Workshop will consist of a group of papers in a sub-discipline of Modelling, Optimization and Applications related to the main topics of WCGO 2019. The papers will be required to meet the same standards as WCGO 2019 papers and will be published in the conference proceedings, in a bound volume by Springer-Verlag in their Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing series. All the Special Sessions will be centralized as tracks in the same conference submission and reviewing system as the regular papers.

Please send the Workshop / Special Session proposals to Prof. Hoai-An Le-Thi with the following information:

  1. Title & acronym of the special session or workshop
  2. Brief profiles of special session or workshop organizers
  3. General description of the special session or workshop scope
  4. List of topics

The organizers will be responsible for the advertisement and promotion of the special session and the conference including the Special Session & Workshop webpage preparation. The management of papers review will be achieved by Special Session & Workshop Committees, using the Conference System (a separate Sciencesconf platform track will be provided for each Special Session & Workshop). The organizers are responsible for managing the review process. All the reviews should be submitted through the WCGO conference system. Each paper should obtain at least two reviews. The final decision as for the acceptance will be taken by the WCGO 2019 Program Committee based on recommendations provided by Special Session & Workshop organizers.

The registration fee of an organizer of a session including 4 accepted papers (resp. a workshop including 8 accepted papers) would be 50%-OFF (resp. 100%-OFF). One reduction is applied on each session.

The deadline for Special Sessions proposal is 25/01/2019 (extended)

We look forward to collaborating with you in ensuring the success of WCGO 2019.
