How to Submit SIS Proposal (by Session Proposer)

To Submit a Proposal

SIS proposal should be submitted by a designated “Corresponding Proposer” (i.e., one of the organizers of each invited session) with his/her PIN according to the steps below:

  1. Go to the Online Submission Site.
  2. Follow the link to “Submit a Contribution to NANO 2024” to the right of the NANO 2024 listing.
  3. Select the “Special Session Proposal“ as the type of submission.
  4. Fill in the information about “Title, Proposers* and Keywords“; and then continue to the next page.
  5. Upload your “Session Proposal**” in a PDF, MS-Word, or Latex (Note: The main.tex file should be called root.tex)

* NOTE: “Proposers” should be entered through their PIN numbers and every proposer must have a PIN.

  1. If you have submitted papers to prior NANO conferences: You should have your PIN number. You can retrieve your or co-proposers’ existing PIN or set/reset your PASSWORD in the PIN Wizard at the submission site.
  2. If you have never submitted papers to NANO conferences: You should set your PIN and PASSWORD in the PIN Wizard at the submission site. The same should be done for the proposers without PIN.

** NOTE: Proposers should prepare their abstracts using the proposal template.

※ Special NOTE to SIS Proposer:

  • The online submission site (i.e., Papercept) will generate a code when a SIS proposal is submitted. The proposer can change the code or leave it as is.
  • Inform the code to the speakers invited by the proposer and encourage them to use the code when submitting abstracts, such that the abstracts can be automatically classified to the associated SIS session.
