Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the
conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some
particular international project.
The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics.
Each prospective organizer is invited to submit a proposal explaining the targeted topic's novelty/importance and listing the contributing authors and their contributions.
All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on CD-ROM support.

All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library.
A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a CCIS Series book .
The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI (Elsevier Index) and Scopus.
