2021 International Conference on Visual Communications and Image Processing Call for Special Sessions

2021 International Conference on Visual Communications and Image Processing
Munich, Germany, December 5-8, 2021
Call for Special Session Proposals

The 2021 International Conference on Visual Communications and Image
Processing (VCIP), sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society,
will be held in Munich, Germany, December 5-8, 2021.  As usual,
special sessions complement the regular program of VCIP 2021. They are
intended to provide a sample of the state-of-the-art and also to
highlight important emerging research directions in fields of
particular interest to the VCIP participants. The idea is to have a
focused effort on a "special topic" rather than a broad focus.

This Call is inviting Special Session Proposals from the visual
communications and image processing community according to the
requirements defined below.


The target for each Special Session is four papers. The following
information should be included in the proposal:
* Title of the proposed special session

* Names and affiliations of the organizers (including brief bio and
contact info)

* Session abstract (approx. 250 words) including the motivation and
significance of the topic, and the rationale for the proposed special

* List of invited papers (including a tentative title, author list,
and abstract for each paper)

* Optionally, the proposal should describe how the special session
will be organized at VCIP in order to make it truly a special event

In addition to invited papers, other potential authors will be allowed
to submit papers to Special Sessions.

All submitted special session papers shall conform to the format and
length requirements of the regular session papers. If a special
session has more than 4 papers being accepted, some of the papers will
be moved to the regular paper sessions of the conference.

Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic and
relevance to VCIP, as well as the track record of the organizers and
anticipated quality of papers in the proposed session. Kindly note
that all papers in a special session will be peer-reviewed following
the regular paper review process to ensure that the contributions are
of the highest quality.

To submit a special session proposal (in a single PDF file) or for
additional information regarding the special sessions, please contact
Special Session Co-Chairs: Fernando Pereira ( fp@lx.it.pt ) and
Christian Timmerer ( christian.timmerer@itec.uni-klu.ac.at ).
