PAAMS'18 Special Sessions will be a very useful tool in order to complement the regular program with new or emerging topics of particular interest in the field of Artificial Intelligence. Special Sessions that emphasize on multi-disciplinary and transversal aspects, as well as cutting-edge topics are especially encouraged and welcome. At least one of the authors will be required to register and attend the symposium to present the paper in order to include the paper in the conference proceedings.

How to apply?

Prospective organizers of special sessions should submit proposals indicating:

  • Title of the proposed session.
  • Short biography of the organizer(s), with complete address for contact.
  • List of tentative papers (including titles, authors, and contact information of the corresponding author/s).

Special Sessions proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic, the qualifications of the organizers and the authors of the papers proposed in the sessions, and the balance of the topics across the technical areas represented in Artificial Intelligence.

Before submitting your proposal, please take a look to the PAAMS 2018 accepted workshops (http://www.paams.net/open-calls/call-for-workshops) and accepted special sessions (http://www.paams.net/open-calls/call-for-special-sessions) to try to prevent content overlap.

Should you be interested in submiting such a special session, please contact us (info@paams.net) with a proporsal before 20th October, 2018.
