Call for Special Sessions

The goal of Special Sessions is to provide a focused discussion of new or innovative topics. Special Session organizers consist of at least five papers. Please download the Special Sessions form and submit it to the Special Session Chair,

All Special Session papers will be reviewed with the same criteria as Regular Session papers.

After your proposal is accepted, a link to upload the special session papers will be created. Login information will be sent to you by email.
