Call for Workshop and Special Session Proposals
BI'23 will be hosting a series of workshops and special sessions featuring topics relevant to the brain informatics community on the latest research and industry applications.
A workshop/special session typically takes a half-day (or full-day) and includes a mix of regular and invited presentations including full papers, abstracts, invited papers as well as invited presentations. The paper and abstract submissions to workshops/special sessions will follow the same format as the BI conference papers and abstracts.
9-12 pages are strongly encouraged for the regular papers including figures and references in Springer LNCS Proceedings format (https://www.springer.com/us/computer-science/lncs/conference-proceedings-guidelines). Over length papers will be charged for 100$ per page.
All papers will be peer-reviewed and accepted based on originality, significance of contribution, technical merit, and presentation quality. All papers accepted (and all special sessions' full length papers) will be published by Springer as a volume of the series of LNCS/LNAI.
Abstracts have a word limit of 1500 words. Experimental research is particularly welcome. Accepted abstract submissions will be included in the conference program, but will not be included in the conference proceedings published by Springer.
Each proposal should include:
1) workshop/special session title;
2) length of the workshop (half/full day);
3) names, main contact, and a short bio of the workshop organizers;
4) brief description of the workshop scope and timeline;
5) prior history of the workshop (if any);
6) potential program committee members and invited speakers;
7) any other relevant information.
Accepted workshop and special session full papers will be published at the same BI proceedings at the Springer-Nature LNAI Brain Informatics Book Series (https://link.springer.com/conference/brain). Workshop organizers can be invited to contribute a book publication in the Springer-Nature Brain Informatics & Health Book Series, or a special issue at the Brain Informatics Journal.
