2020 IEEE Radar Conference: Special Sessions

Special Sessions are an important feature of leading technology conferences. Special Sessions afford the possibility to truly reflect the current state-of-the-art of modern research fields in the setting of a larger international conference. Through these highly focused sessions, organizers can work with authors to coordinate contributions around a well-defined session narrative.

Submit your proposal!

Prospective Special Session organizers should submit their proposal using this form (PDF) or this form (Word).
Please send the completed form to specialsessions@radarconf20.org before December 20, 2019.
The notification of acceptance of a Special Session proposal is January 20, 2020.
Upon acceptance, session organizers must liaise with invited speakers to submit their papers by March 30, 2020 (i.e., invited speakers may need to begin preparing their papers before the Special Session proposal is accepted).


  • Organizers shall be no more than two and they cannot appear as co-authors of more than one paper each.
  • The organizers should make sure that authors are invited prior to submitting Special Session proposals.
  • All papers submitted to a Special Session will undergo the normal peer-review process.
  • Please bear in mind that a strict limit of 5 papers has been set for each session. Therefore, should the organizers invite a larger number of speakers and should all the papers be accepted, they would be compelled to move some of the contributions received to regular sessions.
