Policy Regarding Keynote Speakers at Conferences Organized by IIIS

Roughly speaking, there could be three different kinds of keynote speakers at conferences organized by IIIS:

  • General Plenary Keynote Speakers
  • Plenary Keynote Speakers, at a specific conference
  • Technical Keynote Speakers, at parallel sessions

General Plenary Keynote Speakers

When several conferences are collocated at the same time and at the same venue, there are usually General Plenary Sessions where Keynote Speakers address a multi- and inter-disciplinary audience. These talks are usually, but not necessarily, invited talks, i.e. talks accepted without going trough the reviewing process of the conference, but their respective acceptances for presentations are based on the CV of the presenter, the topic, the title and abstract of the talk.

Plenary Keynote Speakers, at a specific conference

A specific conference, organized in the context of the joint event of all collocated conferences, may also have its own plenary session. When these conference plenary sessions are held, no regular or invited session of the respective conference is held at the same time. These specific plenary sessions could be called sub-plenary sessions if they are related to the General Plenary Sessions of the joint event of all collocated conferences.

Keynote addresses in this kind of Plenary Sessions are usually invited papers or invited talks. Similarly to the General Plenary Invited Keynote addresses, these talks are usually, but not necessarily, invited talks, i.e. talks accepted without going trough the reviewing process of the conference, but their respective acceptances for presentation are based on the CV of the presenter, the topic, the title and abstract of the talk.

These kinds of invitations are usually made by the General Chair initiative, or by an agreement between the General Chair and the Program Committee's Chair of the specific conference or symposium. In any case, it should be explicitly stated at least one month before the conference date.

Highly effective invited session organizers may be eligible for specific plenary presentations if a) their research area is related to several disciplines (interdisciplinary one or applicable to several disciplines), b) they have a good CV, and c) they are willing to address a multi-disciplinary audience which requires a non-technical, but meaningful presentation.

Some registered authors may also be eligible for specific plenary presentations, if a) their paper has been evaluated as an exceptional one, b) they have a good CV, and c) they are willing to address a multi-disciplinary audience which requires a non-technical, but meaningful presentation.

Technical Keynote Speakers, at Parallel Sessions

Breakout sessions (regular and invited sessions) or technical sessions may also have keynote speakers, who usually have more time than the other presenters at the same session, and who are distinguished as "technical keynote speakers"; their article and presentation will be distinguished as keynote ones.

Authors of papers which reviewers informed about their high quality and/or nominated them to be considered among the best ones may be invited to present their paper at a regular session as Keynote Speakers. An author with a highly qualified CV may also be invited as a Keynote Speaker for the presentation of his/her paper at a regular session. Invited session organizers may recommend a presentation to be made at their sessions as a Keynote address.

Invited papers or invited talks may also be candidates for keynote addresses. These kinds of invitations are usually made to highly qualified scholars or professionals, and the acceptance of their presentation might be fundamentally based of the authors' CVs and their previous research and publications.

These kinds of invitations are usually made by the General Chair initiative, or by an agreement between the General Chair and the Program Committee's Chair of the specific conference or symposium. In any case it should be explicitly stated at least one month before the conference date.

Invited sessions organizers can make this kind of academic (non-financial) invitation in their respective invited session. They can also make the decision regarding technical keynote speakers in their respective sessions. In such a case the decision should be explicitly stated and communicated to the General Chair of the respective conference, at least one month before the conference date and no later than the submission of the final version of the respective invited paper and/or keynote address.

Unless agreed before the respective registration, no financial support will be provided to keynote speakers.
