The organizing committee is pleased to call for symposium proposals under the 1st International Conference on Emerging Electronics & Automation (E2A) 2021 which will be held during 17th - 19th December 2021. The aim of this special call is to provide the opportunity to the academicians and researchers to be part of the conference by exploring the possibility of publishing the new research outcome in some specific and emerging research areas which are in line with the theme of the conference. The peer-reviewed and selected papers of this E2A-2021 conference will be published as proceedings with Springer in their prestigious "Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering" series (https://www.springer.com/series/7818). This series is indexed by EI Compendex and Scopus databases.
While submitting the proposal, the following points need to be considered.
- The topic of a symposium proposal should be timely and interesting. The symposium must complement the regular technical program by focusing on the new and emerging research topics. The proposals may also be on the area focusing on challenging open problems related to the applications.
- The proposal should contain a brief abstract mentioning how the symposium will contribute to the scientific community followed by a detailed plan (including number of papers expected; and preferably with the tentative title and short abstract for the papers).
- The number of proposers for a symposium proposal should be restricted to 4. One group may send multiple proposals. Also, one person can be part of multiple proposals.
- The proposers are encouraged to chair the session/sessions under a symposium, if accepted.
- There should be minimum 6 accepted papers for a symposium session. It should also be noted that the authors of accepted papers should preferably be from different institutes.
- If a symposium session cannot satisfy the minimum number of paper criteria, after the completion of the review process, then the accepted papers may be treated as a regular paper and placed under suitable tracks.
- All the criteria (like review process, registration fee, publication etc.) set for the regular papers are equally applicable for the papers submitted under a symposium.
- The participation of speakers from industry in a special session proposal is highly encouraged and will be positively evaluated when the proposal is assessed.
