APSIPA ASC 2017 strongly encourages the organization of Special Sessions to supplement regular programs, aiming to bring together leading researchers and engineers from around the world to present the state-of-the-art research directions. Special Session proposals should cover topics that relate to regular technical program tracks of APSIPA ASC 2017, but are not limited to them. All submitted papers go through the same review process, and decisions of acceptance will be based on the special session committee and the review results. The special session organizers and all invited speakers will be required to register for the conference.
