Please note that all papers in the proposed session should be reviewed to ensure that the contributions are of the highest quality. The organizer(s) of accepted special sessions will arrange the review process, except that the review of papers submitted by the organizers themselves will be handled by the special session and program co-chairs. Once all the papers belonging to a special session are reviewed, the final acceptance of the session will be based on submitting the whole package to the program co-chairs.
