Call for Special Sessions (E-mail: ss-info@smc2018.org):
Proposals to organize Special Sessions are strongly encouraged. Special Sessions must be related to the
conference theme or especially hot topics within the conference scope. All submitted papers undergo the same
review process, and submission to proposed sessions is not a guarantee of acceptance.
Call for Contributed Papers:
Prospective authors are invited to submit their full-length papers electronically through the conference
website. Each paper should be concise with sufficient detail and references to allow critical review. Papers
will be reviewed by at least two referees for technical merit and content. Accepted papers will be presented in
oral or poster sessions. All accepted papers which have been presented at SMC 2018 will be published in the
conference proceedings on the IEEE Xplore.
