Special sessions have the main aim of creating a mini-workshop on a specific topic, where researchers working on the same argument can make knowledge, familiarize, exchange ideas, create cooperation.
Special Sessions are being developed by designated chairs.

If you, as an author, have a paper that could be included in one of these sessions, you may submit an extended abstract selecting your favourite session. If the abstract is not selected for the session, it may be included in another part of the technical program.

To submit extended abstracts to the special session, follow the submission instructions for regular sessions, but remind to specify the special session to which the paper is directed.
