Call for Special Sessions

The ICIP 2024 technical program will highlight a series of Special Sessions to complement the regular program with new and emerging topics of particular interest to the image-processing community.

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

  • Title of a Special Session;
  • Names, affiliations, and contact information of the session organizers;
  • Short biography of the organizers;
  • Motivation, indicating the novelty of the topic and any possible interdisciplinary aspects of the session; and
  • List of six (6) contributed papers (including titles, authors, contact information of the corresponding author, and a short abstract). Upon acceptance of the Special Session proposal, the contributed papers will be submitted in the same format as regular papers. No more than one paper in the session can be authored by the organizers.

Submission of the Special Session proposals matching the special theme of the conference, Trustworthy visual data processing, are especially encouraged.

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

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 any missing papers in the Special Session. If a sufficient number of papers for a given Special Session have not been accepted after the review process and we are unable to find suitable substitutes from the regular review pool, the Special Session may be canceled. Any further inquiries should be sent to
