Virtual Event In light of the continued uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 situation, the safety and well-being of all the conference participants is our topmost priority. Therefore, the ESWEEK Steering Committee has decided to move to a virtual event format for this year to be held from September 20-25. The 2020 paper review, WiP submission and acceptance processes will proceed normally. We are heartened by a more than 50% increase in number of submitted papers at ESWEEK this year that shows the resilience of our community. We will follow up with further details on conference registration, presentation formats, special sessions and tutorials.
We invite you to submit special session proposals on any topic related to the broad areas of interest of ESWEEK and beyond. The special session should cover a topic that is contemporary, hot, and complementary to the regular sessions. The special session should be able to generate enthusiasm among the ESWEEK participants. Proposals should be submitted before the deadline of May 1, 2020.
Submission Details: A 2-page maximum PDF file, including the following information:
Title of the special session.
