The organizing committee of ICASSP 2024 invites proposals for Special Sessions on emerging topics in signal processing. Please read carefully the submission guidelines outlined next before submitting your proposal through the link below.

Proposal Submission

Each session proposal should include an abstract (limited to 2,000 characters) along with a background and justification paragraph (limited to 3,000 characters), where the session organizers elaborate on

Each proposal should also include a title, list of authors, and short abstracts of the committed papers.

No author can appear as author or co-author in more than one paper of a single special session. An exemption can be made when the first paper is an overview paper (preferably by the organizers). In this case, the co-authors of the first paper can be co-authors of one additional paper in the same session.

ICASSP 2024 will continue to require in-person presentation of all accepted papers, and hence there must be one author of each accepted paper to present it in-person.

Proposal Selection

Special session proposals will be evaluated based on

A special session is expected to address an emerging topic in signal processing that might not be fully aligned with a specific Technical Committee (TC) of the Society. However, we would like the proposers to identify TC(s) with which their topic is closest with when submitting the proposal.

Selection of a special session proposal does not guarantee final acceptance of the special session. Papers submitted to special sessions will undergo rigorous review similar to those for regular submissions. The acceptance of a special session to the ICASSP technical program hinges upon the quality of the papers submitted to the special session. If all papers submitted to the special session are accepted, every effort will be made for the special session to be scheduled as a lecture session.
