Q: Will I be required to pay for registration if I am one of the organizers or presenters of the Special Session?
A: Yes. The presenters are expected to register for the full conference. In unusual circumstances of financial hardship, please inform the ECCE conference general chair.

Q: Am I allowed to present on a topic that is not listed on the Special Session Webpage?
A: Yes. The final discretion on the topic is decided by the special sessions committee. The webpage only highlights the most relevant topics for the conference but is not limited to just those.

Q: What is the total presentation time allotted for individual presentations?
A: The time allocated for individual presentations is 20 minutes. However, this time may vary slightly to support the session schedule.

Q: How will the individual presenters be accommodated in the special session schedule?
A: The individual presenters will be grouped as 4-5 individual speakers depending on the target topic of the session. The session’s panelist will be amongst the 4-5 speakers that are chosen into a group. The presenters will be notified after the final scheduling for the sessions is done.

Q: What is the format of the presentation for the individual presenters?
A: The preferred format would be an Oral presentation. However, the format can be modified to poster to meet the session’s scheduling.

Q: Will I get support in the form of a letter for obtaining a visa for a US visit if I get selected as one of the organizers/presenters for the special sessions?
A: All registered attendees will be provided a visa invitation letter upon request.

Q: Are the special sessions and individual presentation proposals reviewed?
A: Yes, the presentations are reviewed for quality and scope. Due to a lack of conference room space, more special sessions (and abstracts) are usually submitted that can be included in the conference program.

Q: What happens if my abstract is reviewed as high quality but is not placed in a special session?
A: In this case, some talks may be offered as a poster presentation. There was likely either a lack of room space due to so many submissions, or there were not enough similar-themed individual abstracts submitted to form a coherent special session.

Q: Are the abstracts or talks included in the conference proceedings on IEEE Xplore?
A: No

Q: What types of topics are encouraged for submission?
A: Special sessions normally focus on industry topics or trends, although all topics related to ECCE are considered.
