Panel discussions that make a solid contribution to the conference theme will be considered. A panel should have at least three, but not more than five participants. Note that panels are expected to be based on (panel) discussion and active exchange of ideas instead of being sessions consisting of a series of paper presentations.

If panels are accepted for presentation at the conference, at least two panel members will need to register during the Early Bird Registration period and present the work at the ISIC 2022. All panel members must register for and attend the conference. The organisers reserve the right to cancel panels if these conditions are not met.

Panel proposals are not published in the official conference proceedings. If authors wish, proposals may be published in the Humboldt edoc repository (see poster call for more information). A shortened version of the panel proposals will be available in the conference program.
