Call for Special Sessions Proposals

The ICIP 2017 technical program will highlight a series of Special Sessions in order to complement the regular program with new or emerging topics of particular interest to the image-processing community.

Prospective organizers of Special Sessions should submit proposals with the following information:

Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic and on the qualifications of the organizers and of the authors of the contributed papers as well.


The papers in each accepted Special Session will undergo a review process, similar to the other regular papers. It is the responsibility of the organizers to ensure that their Special Session papers meet ICIP quality standards. In case a paper in a Special Session does not meet the expected quality, it will be rejected and an effort will be made to draw papers from the regular submission process to fill in the gap. If too many papers for a given Special Session are not accepted in the review process and we are unable to find suitable substitutes from the regular review pool, the Special Session may be canceled.

Proposals and inquiries should be sent via e-mail in PDF to the Special Sessions chairs, Feng Wu and Pascal Frossard (, by the November 15th, 2016 deadline.

The deadline for submitting special session proposals has passed. The list of accepted special sessions can be found here.
