Special Sessions

Special Sessions consist of a group of papers having a common, unified theme. These types of sessions are excellent opportunities to give the audience depth and breadth of exposure to a particular issue, in a way not possible through a single paper. Furthermore, a Special Session presents many viewpoints on a topic area, in a way not possible through a typical tutorial.
Persons wishing to organize a Special Session should submit a proposal (download template in Word format) in PDF format to all Special Session Co-Chairs.
Proposals should include:
  • Title of the Special Session; and
  • A concise description of the subject area.

    This description will be posted on the conference website in an area dedicated to Special Sessions, and serve as the Call for Special Session.
    The editorial review team will review the submitted manuscripts. Organizers of accepted proposals will be notified within two weeks of submitting proposals. At this time, they should contact their editorial review team, and prospective authors.

    For deadlines, please refer to timeline.

    Proposal for special sessions can be submitted to Special Sessions Co-Chairs:
    Ahmad Ibrahim, Canada, ahmad_1@shaw.ca
    Milos Manic, USA, misko@uidaho.edu

    SS02 - New applications of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in electrical and electronic engineering teaching.

    Jose A Antonino-Daviu, Larisa Dunai

    Over these recent years, the use of ICTs has proliferated in the educational area within different engineering fields. The potential of these tools to enhance many aspects of the learning process as well as their widespread use to increase the interest toward the subjects make them an important asset that every instructor should consider. Moreover, these technologies play a crucial role in the context of the education for sustainable development of nowadays societies. Indeed, they can contribute to a substantial saving of material assets which should be necessary in the absence of these technologies. The aim of this special session is to attract papers describing new applications of ICTs to the teaching in the electrical & electronics area. The applications may affect theoretical lectures, laboratory sessions, student assessment or other aspects related to educational tasks in the referred area. Papers describing applications directly contributing or related to the sustainable development will be especially welcome. ...
