INVITED SESSIONS

Based on past conferences experience we suggest the following steps in
order to organize an invited session:

1) Identify a special topic in the scope of SCI 2001, and the invited
session title.
2) Fill the invited session organization form, provided in the
conference
web page. If you don't have access to the web, contact the General
Chair,
via e-mail, ncallaos@callaos.com ncallaos@aol.com callaos@telcel.net.ve

3) If the identified topic is suitable, the General Chair will accept
the
proposal, and you will receive an acceptation by e-mail, in few days.
This
acceptation is not a final approval of the proposed session, but a
pre-approval.
Final approval will depend on identifying at least five papers for the
proposed session and informing, at least,
about their titles. With this acceptation a) the proposed session will
be
included in the conference web page as well as its organizer and chair
name: and b) its organizer will be able to announce his/her invited
session
in the context of SCI 2001, by any media that he/she thinks
appropriated,
such as: Web page, hard copy call for papers, call for papers attached
to
e-mails, etc.
4) Contact researchers and/or practitioners in your field to see if they

can contribute a paper to your proposed session and attend at SCI 2001.
5) Collect the extended abstracts or the paper drafts from each
prospective
participant.
6) Write a summary (1-2 page) with the main objectives, which must be
related to the invited/selected papers.
7) As soon as you have 5 papers, you will complete the form in regard to

the invited session papers, provided in the conference web site.
8) Step 7 will take your invited session to the status of an approved
one,
if the papers fulfil all the requirements (papers quality, etc). All
the
approved invited sessions will be included in the SCI 2001 conference
program.
