special session.

Special Session Program
Special sessions consist of six papers as a target number, but a minimum of
four and a maximum of eight papers are also acceptable. A special session
paper can be a regular paper or an invited paper. Regular special session
papers are unsolicited papers submitted by an author. The special session
organizer may invite a distinguished researcher to submit an invited paper.
Normally, there can be one or at most two such invited papers per special
session, unless another agreement is made with the Special Session Chair.
Paper Submission Process
Authors submit papers for special sessions through the EDAS online
submission system, indicating clearly the desired special session. Authors
