Call for Special Sessions

INISTA 2020 invites proposals for Special Sessions to be held during the conference. Special Sessions will give researchers in focused areas the opportunity to present and discuss their work, providing a forum for interaction among a broader community of researchers.

A Special Session will consist of a group of papers in a sub-discipline of all aspects of INISTA topics i.e. theoretical and practical aspects of Intelligent Systems and wide range of applications. The papers will be required to meet the same standards as INISTA 2020 main track papers will be included and will be submitted in the conference proceedings. The conference proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore (https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/Xplore/home.jsp).
