Invited papers

Each proposed invited session will receive a session identification number. Contributors of the invited sessions must submit their full draft papers by the 6 November 2017 , 27 November 20174 December 2017 deadline, specifying the invited session to which they contribute using the session identification number.

Each invited paper will be individually reviewed, and the proposed invited session itself will also be rated as a whole. To ensure the continuity of the program and that papers addressing similar issues are grouped together, at the discretion of the Program Committee, individual papers may be removed from a proposed session and replaced by appropriate contributed papers. Moreover, accepted papers from rejected invited sessions may be placed into the regular program.
