Organized Sessions

We welcome session proposals, if you are interested in organizing one or more sessions focused on a specific topic and have already identified papers/presenters. Each proposed session should include four individual papers.

  • Title: Organized session [session title];
  • A tentative name for the session;
  • Information of all the papers (submission IDs, submitters, titles, and abstracts).
