The Organizing Committee can accept proposal for Special Sessions from qualified scientists that want to contribute to this event. Special sessions have the prestige of a really targeted audience.

On the other hand, it has been observed that in special sessions all (or almost all) the papers are presented as well as several discussions with serious comments and questions take place after the presentation. Many successfull WSEAS Conferences started in the beginning as Special Sessions or Workshops in some previous WSEAS conference.
You could submit a session online using the following form:





The registration fees must be paid in EUR
550 EUR for every author (max.,number of pages 6, extra fee 100 EUR for each extra page)

250 EUR for each additional paper

It includes: Publication of your paper(s) in an ISI Book (Thomson),
CD-ROM + evaluation of the paper for the Journals of NAUN / University Press with free PDF for all the academic community after the conference, a previous book (from 2007 or Journal), 2 coffee-breaks per day and one banquet in the Hotel.



The Organizing Committee can accept only *.pdf or *.ps or *.doc or *.rtf format. The Organizing Committee prefer *.pdf though)

1. PDF: For the format of the your Paper(s), please, download the file wseas.pdf. To read this file, you must have the Acrobat Reader program.

2. Word for Windows: We can also accept papers in Word for Windows (Microsoft). In this case, you could download the file wseas-full.rtf (you must have in your computer Word for Windows). Please, click here and get : wseas.rtf

3. If you use LaTeX, please download the LaTeX template: wseas.tex or wseas.txt. You have to convert it to .ps file and submit your .ps file to the conference via the web site.

4. If you use a different  Word Processor, please, first download the file wseas.pdf or  wseas.rtf read it using Acrobat Reader or Word for Windows, print out it and then make the necessary modifications in your word processor program (if needed) in order to agree with this format. If you are a TeX or LaTeX user, please, don't send TeX or LaTeX files (i.e. TeX or LaTeX code), but a Postscript file (.ps) or better for us the final PDF file (*.pdf)

Submission Deadline: June 21, 2012

General Information
Please check the session schedule on the program that you will receive by email after the registration deadline to see which day and time you are presenting. The duration of a presentation slot is 20 minutes (15 minutes for your lecture and 5 minutes for questions-discussion). An LCD projector and a computer (MS Windows XP) with a CD-ROM drive, USB ports, and presentation software (MS PowerPoint, Adobe Acrobat Reader) will be available in all the conference rooms for lecture presentations.
* It is highly recommended to have your own pointe. Over-head Projector cannot be used. Only computer presentation (computer - data projector) will be allowed.

Preparation of Visuals
Before the beginning of each session, each presenter must deliver his CV (Short Biography) which must be printed out according to the format:
* Please note that individuals using computer projection must bring a CD or USB memory key containing their presentation. Speakers should arrive in their session room 10 minutes before the start of their session to hand the presenter’s personal data sheet (biography) to the chairperson.

General Considerations
Limit the number of words per visual to no more than 30. Leave space, at least the height of a capital letter, between lines of text.
* All fonts, including those on graphs, should be 18 point or larger.
* Graphs and charts should have bold lines and symbols that contrast sharply with the background.
* Your presentation time is about 15 minutes, leaving about 5 minutes for questions from the audience.
* A reasonable presentation time for each slide is about 2 minutes, as any shorter interval will make it difficult for the audience to understand.
* Do not waste visuals where they are not needed. Use them where a picture, chart, diagram, or cartoon will help. Tables of figures are hard to read and understand quickly, use pie charts or column graphs instead.
* If it takes longer than 10 seconds to comprehend a visual, then there’s too much material in it. Do not put anything on the visual if you don't need it. Tell what each visual is all about, but do not read from it. Keep it on screen, as long as your talk refers to it.
