- All special session papers' titles and author names for SOItmC 2018 should be announced until the end ofSeptember 2017 by special session chairs including his own and colleages'.
Special Session Requirement:All papers(each special session has 5 ~ 6 papers) should be presented at 2017SOItmC 2nd International seminaron December 8(Fri.)., 2017(online presentation is possible). Expanded abstracts of papers (with 2000 words or 10-15 pages PPT) should be submitted until December 5(Tue.), 2017. All special session chairs (authors) should present each paper in 5 minutes.And, we require special session chairs and special issue paper authors to prepare top quality papers to pass the peer review process of SSCI special issues and JOItmC special issue process after SOItmC 2018.
Special Session Advantage:We will recommend top 3 papers(2 papers for SSCI special issue shooting, 1 paper for JOItmC special issue shooting). The paper which is recommended at JOItmC would be awarded by “Best Paper Award” and will be invited as a book chapter.
*Recommendation means non-direct rejection. From our system, the recommended 3 papers from each special session would pass the review process more effectively because they have enough time(nearly 1 year) to prepare good papers, and they have several chances to develop their papers based on comments from world top scholars.
- All special session chairs and authors should upload full and finished papers at SOItmC 2018 Conference platform until 31th May, 2018.
