CALL FOR ISCSLP 2014 SPECIAL SESSIONS

We are pleased to announce that the 9th International Symposium Chinese Spoken Language Processing will be held in Singapore on September 12-14, 2014. It is a continuation of the ISCSLP series , which has been successfully held in Singapore (2006), Taipei (2002), Hong Kong, (2004), Kuming (2008), Tainang (2010), Hong Kong (2012). More information about ISCSLP 2014 can be found on the conference website at: http://www.iscslp2014.org/.
As the special session Co-Chairs of the ISCSLP Organizing Committee, we would like to invite you to propose a special session for ISCSLP 2014. Special sessions are to complement the regular technical programme with interdisciplinary topics and/or important new emerging areas of interest related to the main conference. A special session should focus on a particular topic different from the regular sessions, and each special session should comprise no more than 5 papers.
The following information should be included in the proposal:

Title of the proposed special session.
Names/affiliation of the organizers (including brief bio and contact info).
Session abstract (state significance of the topic and the rationale for the proposed session).
List of invited papers (including a tentative title, the author list and a 300-words abstract for each paper).
The conference will allow any authors submit papers to the special sessions. To ensure quality of the submissions, all papers submitted to the special sessions will be reviewed through the same review process as papers in the regular sessions. If a special session has more than 5 papers being accepted, some of the papers will be moved to the regular sessions.

Proposals will be evaluated by the Organizing Committee based on the importance of the topic and its relevance to ISCSLP, as well as the qualification of the organizer(s) and quality of the invited papers. Once the proposal has been approved, the proposed session will be registered in the conference system to accept submissions, and the special session co-chairs will assist the organizer(s) to arrange the review process.
