The co-chairs will promote the special track and take actions to ensure an adequate number of submissions. Minimum number of accepted papers for a succesful special track is 6 in regular sessions + 2 in poster. The special track co-chairs will organize a peer review process for the extended abstracts submitted to their track and propose the list of the papers to be included in the conference programme to IPC co-chairs. At least one of the co-chairs must be registered to the conference and serve as a session chair in his/her own track.

The proposal for a special track must enclose the title and short abstract, list of co-chairs with their affiliations, list of potential reviewers, overview of the scientific communities (associations, working groups, standardization bodies, project consortiums, etc.) which the co-chairs will address and a proposal for a keynote. Special track proposals should not exceed 2 A4 pages and they should be sent by email to the programme chair.
