Extended abstracts (2 pages of A4, 800-1000 words) must be submitted for review. Full papers (4-6 pages in conference format) will be required for final camera-ready submissions.

Organized Session Proposal
The organized session organizers should submit a proposal (choose "Organized Session Proposal" in the submission system) first, then a session code will be assigned to the session, and all the corresponding authors of the papers involved in the session should be informed of the session code by the session organizers. A session commonly consists of six papers.
Organized Session Paper
An organized session paper must be submitted by choosing the submission type "Organized Session Paper" along with the session code. Please note that all papers must be submitted before the indicated first submission deadline, and go through the normal review process. Both regular and position papers can be included in an organized session.
There are two presentation types at SICE2015 for regular and position papers: oral session and poster session. Please select your desired presentation type when you submit a new contribution. The final decision on the presentation type will be made by the program committee according to the review reports. The decision may be different from your choice.
For all regular-paper initial submissions, similarity and overlap with prior published materials will be checked. The results will be used for the paper evaluation. The same check will be performed for all final submissions including position papers.
The Organized Session Proposal should be submitted by a PDF file. The contents of the PDF file include the session title, names and affiliations of organizers, an abstract of the session, a list of papers. The title, authors’ names and affiliations of each paper are contained in the list.
