Call for Events

HIS'10 invites proposals for special sessions and focused Workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference.

Special sessions and Workshops provide organizers and participants with an opportunity to concentrate on focused topics in the areas related to the congress. Both the emerging research areas as well as the application issues can be targeted.

Organizers are encouraged to nominate reviewers of papers to the Program Committee on proposing special sessions. Once a special session/workshop proposal is approved it will be immediately announced on the website. Along with the publicity chairs and other members of the HIS'10 organization, session organizers are expected to help promoting the special sessions by their own means.
All papers submitted through the Submission system are subjected to reviewing by the HIS 2010 Program Committee. Organizers, after studying  reviewers reports of the papers, will make recommendations to the Program Committee on acceptance. On receiving the finalized list of accepted papers from the Program Committee, the conference organizers are responsible for liaising with the authors on the submission of final papers. A minimum of 5 papers is required for each special session and 10 papers for a Workshop. If a session has too few papers, accepted papers will be allocated to regular sessions.
All the accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published by IEEE and fully indexed by IEEE Xplore.

Proposal Guidelines

Special session/Workshop proposals should contain the necessary information for the Special Session/Worshop Chairs and reviewers from the Program Committee to judge the importance, quality and community interest in the proposed topic.  Special session proposals should address the following issues:

Topic of interest: Provide a full description of the proposed special session. What will the special session be about? Why should we believe this is an interesting and significant topic?

Organizer's biography: Please include a short academic background of the session organizer (s).

Expected number of papers and publicity: Special sessions for HIS'09 should consist of at least 5 papers (Workshop should consist of a minimum of 10 papers) and organizers should indicate in their proposal the expected number of papers. Organizers are also expected to help promoting the special sessions by their own means and should describe how this will be done.

Submission: It is recommended to submit the special session proposals as an email attachment to the Special Session Chairs with a copy to HIS2010.special.session@gmail.com and  his10.system@gmail.com
