Special sessions consist of oral presentations only, without written papers and are strongly oriented towards the latest industrial interest, as well as the latest collaboration opportunities between industry and academia. Presentations may be of a more commercial nature than those related to the papers in the standard technical session and the organization of the sessions are more malleable and could be in the form of panel discussions. Audience participation and open source brainstorming session on focused topics are welcomed. Papers presented in special sessions are not subject to peer review and will not be made available in the conference proceedings.
