Symposia/Special Sessions

Symposia or Special Sessions are small specialized events to be held during the congress as a set of oral and poster presentations dedicated to a particular theme or consisting solely of the works of a particular international research project.
Symposia and Special Sessions are typically opened with an oral presentation by the Special Session/Symposium’s chair, which establishes the context for the other presentations.

Both complete papers and extended abstracts can be submitted. All accepted extended abstracts will be published on CD-ROM without an ISBN, accepted papers will be published on digital support and in a special section of the congress proceedings book, under an ISBN reference.
The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI/ISI), DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index), Scopus, Google Scholar, Semantic Scholar, and Microsoft Academic. All papers and extended abstracts presented at the congress venue will also be made available at the SCITEPRESS DIGITAL LIBRARY. SCITEPRESS is member of CrossRef.
