Special Sessions

Special sessions are organized to raise visibility on topics of focused interest in a particular scientific or applications area. Comprising a number of papers focused on a specific theme, which has been proposed by the Special Sessions chairs, it is a great opportunity to address a topic with the right depth, giving it the proper visibility, and allowing also time for discussion and networking.

So far the following Special Sessions are planned (For additional information click the links below):
