Organization of Special Sessions

Once approved, it is the duty of the Organizers to publicize the Special Session among researchers and practitioners in the field and attract a sufficient number of papers.

Papers submitted to special sessions will undergo the same review process as regular papers. The special session organizers of the respective special session are responsible for organizing the review process, assuring at least three reviews per paper.

Conflict of Interest: Before starting the review process, SS organizers must explicitly declare papers which present a conflict of interest for them. A conflict of interest arises where the judgement of a paper quality can be influenced by the organizers being authors or knowing some of the authors. To ensure independent reviews, this conflict must be marked as such in the submission system and the SS Chair/Co-Chairs notified so that they can arrange the review process.

Successful SS: A minimum of 6 accepted papers with authors from at least 3 independent institutions (other than the organizers institutions) and two different countries is required for each session. SS organizers may be coauthors in maximum two papers in the same SS. If a session has too few papers, accepted papers will be allocated to relevant regular sessions wherever possible. In case of indication of weakly organized special sessions, the conference organizers will support the organizers with advice but reserve measures including cancellation of the respective special session.
