The 18th IEEE International Conference on Scalable Computing and
Communications (ScalCom 2018)
October 8-12, 2018
Guangzhou, China

Scalcom 2018 calls for special session proposals which will complement
the research topics of Scalable Computing and Communications.

A special session is an embedded session in Scalcom 2018, focusing on
a specific research topic relevant to the main conference. Each
special session will be expected to accept 4-6 full-lFength papers.

Special session organizers are responsible for forming program
committees, circulating Call for papers, organizing submissions and
reviews as well as planning the final programs. ScalCom 2018 special
session co-chairs will assist the special session organizers in
organizing special sessions and ensure their quality and success. The
registration fees for special sessions will be determined by the
organizing committees of ScalCom 2018, which will provide special
session facilities. Special sessions should strictly follow the
important dates. The paper submission deadlines could be after that of
the main conference to allow special sessions to pick up some good
papers submitted to the main conference. However, sufficient time (5-7
weeks), should be allocated for peer reviews. Each paper should be
reviewed by at least three experts in the corresponding areas.

In order to encourage the special session organizers, the main
conference will offer the following benefits to the special session
organizers: (1) If a special session has 10-20 full registrations,
then one full registration will be waived. (2) If a special session
receives more than 20 full registrations, then its organizers can
choose to get a travel grant (up to USD1500) to attend the conference,
or to invite one keynote speaker for the special session with a free
registration and travel grant (up to USD1500) for the keynote speaker.
The registrations must be from a special session's own received
submissions and accepted papers only, excluding transferred papers
from other conferences.

Please email your special session proposals in PDF format by May 8,
2018 to: the ScalCom 2018 special session co-chairs, Kuan-Ching
Li(kuancli at pu.edu.tw), Wenyin Yang (cswyyang at 163.com). Please use
