The proposals for special sessions on the hot topics in image and video compression are warmly welcomed.
Special sessions are oral technical sessions with about 4 - 6 invited papers. A special session should provide an overview of the state-of-the-art and highlight important research directions in a field related to image or video compression. Each speaker will be required to submit a paper under the regular submission requirements. In particular, all invited speakers will be required to register for the symposium. These papers will also be reviewed. However, it is expected that the special session organizers will recruit only the strongest papers to participate in the special session.
The special session proponents should submit one-page session abstract that includes:
1. A title of the session;
2. A description of the session organization;
3. Tentative titles and abstracts of the invited papers;
4. A list of authors (with affiliations and authors' webpages) who have agreed to present a paper in the session;
5. Brief biography of the session organizer(s) and their contact information.
The special session proposals should be submitted by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The proposal submission deadline: October 30, 2011. The proponents will be notified about the session acceptance shortly after October 30.
