DMBD Call for Special Session Proposals

DMBD 2017 technical program will include special sessions. Their aim is to provide a complementary flavor to the regular sessions and should include hot topics of interest to the swarm intelligence community that may also go beyond disciplines traditionally represented at DMBD.

Prospective organizers of special sessions should submit proposals indicating:

* Title of the session.
* Rationale of the need for the special session at DMBD..
The rationale should stress the novelty of the topic and/or its multidisciplinary flavor, and must explain how it is different from the subjects covered by the regular sessions.
* Short biography of the organizers.
* List of 5 – 6 contributed papers (including titles, authors, contact information of the corresponding author) (this can also be provided later when they become available).

Proposals are due on or before January 01, 2017 and should be sent via e-mail (in either pdf or plain ASCII text form) to the special sessions chairs (Prof. Shangce Gao or Prof. Ben Niu or Prof. Qirong Tang) and forward to DMBD 2017 secretariat at dmbd2017@ic-si.org.

Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic, the qualifications of the organizers and the authors of the papers proposed in the session. In its decision, the committee will try to realize a balance of the topics across the technical areas represented in swarm intelligence.

Notification of acceptance will be sent to the organizers no later than January 01, 2017. Authors of papers included in approved special sessions should submit their manuscript on or before January 30, 2017. Manuscripts should conform to the formatting and electronic submission guidelines of regular DMBD papers (Springer’s LNCS format).

When they submit papers, there is a choice to indicate that their papers are special session papers which will also undergo peer review. It is the responsibility of the organizers to ensure that their special session meets the DMBD quality standards. If, at the end of the review process, less than four papers are accepted, the session will be canceled and the accepted papers will be moved to regular sessions.
