Dear Colleague,

Within the framework of the *2017 40th International Conference on 
Telecommunications and Signal Processing (TSP - )* 
held during *July 5-7, 2017, Barcelona, Spain*, prospective Organizers 
are invited to submit proposals for Special Sessions and Workshops at 
TSP 2017 Conference. Proposals are due through the form below by 
February 20, 2017.

For a Special Session and Workshops proposal to be considered for 
acceptance at TSP 2017 Conference, the proposed topic needs to be an 
emerging area in telecommunications or signal processing. The topic 
should be timely and significantly important to the technical audience, 
and the speakers need to convey compelling information about the topic. 
The proposals will be evaluated by the ability to introduce the area to 
large telecommunications and signal processing community, further 
develop the area, and help establishing a larger research community 
beyond the area.

Each Special Session and Workshop will be approx. 90 minutes long and 
will usually consist of 5 oral presentations, however, in case of larger 
interest the Special Session or Workshop will be divided to more parts. 
Other formats may be possible, including panel discussions, demos, or 
poster presentations.

The Organizer’s role is to invite the speakers, help with reviews, and 
chair the session itself.

Each speaker invited to a Special Session and Workshop will be required 
to submit a paper, under the regular submission requirements, by the 
regular submission deadline. These papers will enter the same system as 
regular papers, and be subject to reviews. The Organizer will be asked 
to help with selection of reviewers and in consultation with the program 
committee will make accept/reject decisions. It is possible that some 
invited papers may be rejected. However, this is expected to be a rare 
case since the Organizer should recruit only the high-quality papers to 
the Special Session or Workshop.

The invited speakers as well as the Organizer will be required to 
register for the conference. Registration fees will not be waived and 
there will be no honoraria available through TSP.

Formore information please visit the /Call for Special Sessions and 
Workshops/ at website We are also ready to answer 
your questions emailed to tsp at <mailto:tsp at>.

Looking forward to meeting you in Barcelona, Spain.

TSP Organizers reserve the right to exclude a paper from distribution 
after the Conference (e.g., non-indexing in IEEE Xplore® and other 
databases) if the paper is not presented at the Conference. However, 
this paper will be distributed as part of the Conference proceedings 
issued on an USB drive.
