Calls > Call for Special Sessions


EUSIPCO has an excellent track record over the years for organizing Special Sessions in new or emerging areas. This year as well we are seeking innovative, high-quality and potentially interdisciplinary proposals for Special Sessions that complement the regular program of the conference and have a focus on interdisciplinary challenges or address significant societal challenges. Special Sessions should be focused and provide both an overview of the state-of-the-art, as well as highlight the most promising research directions, trends and challenges in the proposed field of signal processing.

Proposers should submit the following information with their submission:

  1. Special Session title
  2. Short description of proposed topic (one paragraph)
  3. Novelty and motivation (one to two paragraphs), including why this topic is of interest to the EUSIPCO community and why it is different from a regular session on the same topic
  4. Short biography of the organizers
  5. List of contributed papers (titles, authors w. affiliations, and a short abstract). The targeted number of papers per session is 6, and at least 4 of those should not include the organizers as authors.

Proposals will be evaluated based on topic novelty and associated impact, organizing committee qualifications, as well as the proposed list of contributed papers.
Special session paper submissions at EUSIPCO are reviewed via the exact same process as submissions to the regular program, and papers are expected to meet the same quality standards. For Special Sessions that are somewhat undersubscribed (due to paper rejections or limited number of submissions), an effort will be made to identify regular submission papers to complete the session, as deemed appropriate by the conference organizers.


Proposals (in pdf and not to exceed 4 pages) and inquiries should be sent via e-mail to the Special Sessions Chairs Herwig Wendt ( and Geert Leus (
