Special Sessions

 

Call for Special Sessions

Special sessions complement the regular technical program by highlighting new and emerging research topics or innovative applications of established approaches. The topic of a special session proposal should be timely and compelling.

Special Sessions Proposals should be submitted in PDF format and include the following information:

  • Title and abstract: Propose a title and a brief abstract of no more than approximately 100 words that will allow conference attendees to understand the topic and the focus of the special session.

  • Rationale: Please explain why the topic of the special session is novel and timely, why it is relevant to the conference community and how it possibly fits within the innovation themes listed above.

  • Proposed speakers: Provide a list of all talks, speakers, and co-authors (in each associated paper). Technical sessions are normally expected to have 5 papers.

  • Biographies: Provide a short bio-sketch of the session proposers.

The selection committee will choose the special session proposals based on the topic, quality of the overview paper, and the contributors’ qualification.
