Special sessions

To enhance the impact of the METANANO conference series, researchers within the scope of the conference are invited to suggest Special Sessions. Proposals should be completed by using this template. Please submit your proposal by 16th December 2019 to Technical Programme Committee (TPC) Chair Dr. Mihail Petrov (m.petrov@metalab.ifmo.ru) and CC to Conference Secretary Ms. Anastasia Kaptsova (anastasia.kaptsova@metalab.ifmo.ru).

All proposals will be reviewed by TPC. The TPC will score and rank submitted proposals based on scientific quality, timeliness, and interest from the conference community. The session organizers will have an authority for accepting papers for their session which will not be subject to a regular review cycle. Proposers will be informed about the TPC decision two weeks after the proposal’s submission.

It is expected that there will be one to three slots of 110 minutes in duration. Each slot can accommodate three to six 15 (oral) – 20 (invited) – 30 (keynote) minute papers. Special Sessions will be scheduled at different slots over the conference period. We also expect that the Special Session organizers will keep the following guideline while planning the scientific program: suggesting 1(2) keynote speaker per 2 (3) slot session and 2-3 invited speakers per slot
