ISBI 2022 encourages special sessions with a focus on diversity and inclusion. Special-session proposals that are submitted jointly with other societies and professional bodies are strongly encouraged.
Each session is expected to last 1.5 hours and can have multiple invited speakers, each exploring a different facet of the chosen topic. Presentations will be oral, and only by invitation of the organizers. We expect these sessions to provide attendees with a broad overview of research work being done on a given topic. Additionally, the introduction of topics traditionally unrepresented at ISBI will allow us to broaden the ISBI community. Invited speakers are required to register for the conference. Session organizers are also encouraged to seek outside funding to provide additional support for speakers.
The submitted special-session proposals would be reviewed by an independent select committee of experts from the field.
Invited contributors will be required to either submit a 4-page paper for inclusion in the proceedings, or submit a 1-page abstract that summarizes the content of the talk (which will not be included in the proceedings). These paper/abstract submissions follow the same deadlines and procedures as in the call for contributed papers. In line with IEEE standards, the 4-page papers will undergo peer review. The review process will use the same system as the main conference and will run parallel to the main review process. Selected papers accepted for the main conference may be assigned to special sessions by the Program Committee.
If you are interested, please submit a proposal on the CMT Submission Portal .
