International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design (ISQED)

ISQED 2020 Call for Special Sessions

ISQED 2020 is soliciting proposals for special sessions from both academia and industry. The proposed special sessions should aim at offering a complementary experience to the regular sessions and are of general interest to the audience of ISQED. We expect that these special sessions will raise visibility on topics of focused interest in particular scientific or application areas, establish synergies, and explore new opportunities. Emerging topics and focuses such as IoT, cyber-physical systems, cybersecurity, big data, and machine learning, are particularly encouraged, but all interesting proposals that are aligned with the core of ISQED – quality electronic design – will be considered.

The proposal should consist of a single PDF file (up to three pages) including the following information:

  • Title of the special session
  • Abstract of the special session
  • Rationale of the need for the special session at ISQED with an explanation about how it is different from the subjects covered by the regular tracks
  • A short paragraph on expected audience and the plan to attract audience
  • Short biography of the organizers
  • List of four (4) contributing presentations (including title, presenter, contact information of the corresponding presenter, and an abstract for each presentation)
