The proposal should include a panel title, introduction, the name of the organizer, a proposed moderator, and proposed panelists, along with contact information for all. Proposals must be complete. If necessary, the panel chairs can provide feedback before the submission deadline to incomplete proposals.

Special Sessions

Guidelines for Authors

ITC 2021 is open for proposals for special sessions. These are meant to target hot and emerging test topics complementary to the regular sessions of the conference. One of the objectives is also to cover cross topics, i.e. topics considered “border line” for the test community, but have, or are expected to have, a significant impact on the field. Proposers of special sessions are assumed to be able and willing to serve as organizers of the session, i.e. contact speakers, moderators, etc. Special session organizers can also be speakers or moderators in their own proposals.

In detail, the following information should be provided:

  • A title of the special session
  • Name, contact information and short biography of the organizer(s).
  • An abstract with motivation and explanation why this session will be attractive to the general ITC community and its alignment with topics in this area.
  • Duration (60 or 90 minutes) and layout of the session. The layout should show at least two long (30 min) and no more than two short (15 min) presentations.
  • The list of prospective contributed presentations, including titles, names of the presenters/co-authors, their affiliations and two-sentence bios of the corresponding presenters. Short abstracts for the prospective contributions will be an advantage.
  • Expected number of attendees for this session and strategy for promoting this session.

By means of their submission, organizers and presenters agree to register for and participate in ITC 2021, in case their submission is accepted.
