International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip
Call for Special Sessions
13th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip
October 17 - 18, 2019 | New York, USA
Co-located with Embedded Systems Week (ESWEEK)

Researchers are invited to submit proposals for Special Sessions
for the NOCS 2019, to be held October 17-18, 2019 in New York, USA.

Proposals must be sent via e-mail (either pdf or ascii text) to
Maurizio Palesi (maurizio.palesi at dieei.unict.it) and
Tushar Krishna (tushar at ece.gatech.edu). All proposals will be
evaluated in terms of their novelty, quality and
technical/scientific contribution. Sessions strengthening and/or
extending the conference program in new directions will be
prioritized. The organizing committee reserves the right to
refuse proposals in the event of logistic constraints.


* Special Session proposals due: May 10, 2019
* Acceptance notification: May 31, 2019
* Camera-Ready Paper deadline: July 22, 2019


The aim of the special sessions is to provide a complementary
flavor and novel perspectives to the regular sessions and can
take the form of (1) Panels discussing visionary and/or
controversial issues, (2) Hot-Topic Sessions, dealing with the
introduction and discussion of new R&D problems, and (3) Tutorial
Sessions, addressing trends in the technical domains that are of
interest to the conference participants. Topics that introduce
new directions and paradigms relevant to the NOCS community are
highly encouraged. Special Session proposals should consist of an
extended summary of up to 1500 words as a PDF file, describing
the session content and format.

Proposals should include:

* Title of the special session

* Rationale of the need for the special session at NOCS. 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 three (3) contributed presentations (including titles,
  presenters, contact information of the corresponding presenter,
  and an abstract of each contribution).

* For panel or tutorial session proposals, list three to five
  panelists/speakers and their area of expertise.

Note that the organizer/submitter of the special session may also
be a speaker for the session. In case of acceptance, contributors
of accepted Special Sessions will be asked to submit final texts
or statements of panelists, as appropriate, for publication in
the Proceedings as final, camera-ready manuscripts by July 22,
2019. Panel sessions are entitled to one page per panelist in the
Proceedings; Hot-Topic Sessions are allocated a maximum of
eight (8) pages per speaker.

For these final, camera-ready manuscripts, the only accepted file
format is PDF. All papers should be formatted according the
format guidelines described in section Format of Regular
Submissions page in NOCS web site.

For the accepted special sessions, it is the responsibility of
the Special Session organizer(s) to ensure that the final
manuscript submission deadline is met and all the camera-ready
manuscripts from their respective Special Sessions are
technically sound and meet the editorial standards of the NOCS
Proceedings. The Special Session Chair may decline the
publication of the final manuscripts in the NOCS Proceedings if
the above responsibility is not fulfilled.
