Manuscript Submissions

The IEEE-ITSC 2019 Program will include Special Sessions, Regular Sessions, Workshop Sessions and Plenary Sessions.

List of the Approved Special Sessions

  • Please consult the List of the Approved Special Sessions
  • We encourage authors to consider submitting their manuscripts to a Special Session when possible, instead of to a Regular Session, to ensure that their research topic will attract the maximum audience. Authors can submit their manuscripts to a special session of their choice even if their manuscript was not listed in the initial special session proposal submission.
  • Please contact the Special Sessions Chair, if you wish to obtain any additional information.

Special Session Manuscript Submissions

  • Each accepted Special Session will be allocated a Session Code. Thus, at the submission point, Special Session Manuscripts will be asked to select a Code of the Special Session. Please check the Important Dates section of the IEEE-ITSC2019 Home Page to ensure that your Special Session Manuscript is submitted before the set deadline.
