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.
