Submit a special issue

How to submit a proposal for a special issue ?

A special issue may be associated with a workshop or conference in which case it will contain extended versions of selected papers. These will follow the same reviewing process as for the regular issue (although the process will generally be faster). It may also be a thematic issue, not associated with a scientific event, for which authors will be invited to contribute. In all cases, submissions are made by invitation using an access code.

You can propose the setting up of a special issue by sending the following to :

  • a presentation of the event or a scientific topic;
  • names and CVs of the editors of the special issue;
  • constitution of the Reading Committee;
  • schedule.

 If your proposal is accepted, the members of the proposed Reading Committee will be associate editors for this special issue and as such will be responsible for the entire selection process.
