Special Session

Call for Special Session

Special Sessions may address one or more Tracks, but they should be Organized under a unified theme. Special Sessions are intended to allow projects or any other group of authors to present their own work.

Special Sessions may include one invited speaker, besides papers. Proposers are responsible for defining the full contents of the Special Session, namely the authors and presenters. It is not expected that open calls for papers are launched for Special Sessions, in order to attract authors or presenters.

Special Sessions proposals should be submitted via a specific template, available below. Proposers should provide information on the Title, Duration, Motivation and Background, and Structure. Additional information on specific promotion can also be provided, if applicable.

All participants and speakers in the Special Sessions, regardless of the nature of their presentation, including organizers, must pay the registration fee.

Special Sessions extend for a conference time-slot, i.e., 1h30, and they will be held during the conference, in parallel to regular sessions.

Special Sessions will be evaluated according to the following criteria:
– Relevance
– Timeliness
– Technical content
– Novelty
– Overall Recommendation



Accepted abstract & Full paper will be invited to give the presentation at SGSE 2025
