Call for Special Sessions

ICSOC 2020 will feature Special Sessions which may address one or more Tracks, but they should be organized under a unified theme. Special Sessions are intended to allow projects or any other group of authors to present their own work. These can include one invited speaker, besides papers. Organizers of special sessions are responsible for defining the full contents of their session. It is not expected that open calls for papers are launched for Special Sessions, in order to attract authors or presenters. It is though up to the organizers to decide on this item.

Submitted papers to the special sessions must be evaluated by the session organizers and these will be included in the proceedings. Special Sessions proposals should be submitted via a specific template, available below. Proposers should provide information on the following items:

  • Title
  • Duration
  • Motivation and Background
  • and Structure
  • Additional information on specific promotion can also be provided, if applicable.


Tutorial proposals must be submitted via email to the co-chairs of the tutorials and special sessions.
