Special Sessions

Special sessions are focused events to spotlight emerging research areas, funding opportunities, and other topics of broad interest to the conference attendees. Examples include industry-led, research sponsor-led, education-themed, and history sessions. Special sessions usually do not include presentations of papers that are peer-reviewed, that would be included in the conference proceedings.

To propose a special session, please submit the proposed session title, a half-page description of the session objectives and motivation, and names and brief biographies of the proposed speakers.

For more information, or to discuss possible special session topics, please contact the Vice Chair for Special Sessions, Meeko Oishi.
