Call for Sessions

The ACA conferences are organized as a series of Special Sessions. Special Sessions are held in 2 to 3 hour blocks of time, each of which typically consists of either 4 to 6 half-hour talks or a one hour overview and 2 to 4 half-hour talks. These time blocks may include a half-hour break in the middle. Note that the half-hour slot includes time for questions.

It is preferable that sessions have two organizers, one an experienced person and the other a younger colleague or student.

Organizing a Special Session

All interested researchers can propose a Special Session by sending an e-mail to the Program Chairs by February 8, 2019. The Scientific Committee (ACA Working Group) will then decide on the acceptance of the proposed session. Accepted sessions will be immediately announced on the Sessions page.

A proposal for a Special Session has to include:

  • Title of the Special Session;
  • Short abstract describing the Special Session;
  • Contact information of the organizers.

After the approval of the Special Session, the session organizers will be responsible for:

  • Inviting the speakers;
  • Approving the talk abstracts;
  • Maintaining a web page describing the session with talk abstracts provided;
  • Sending the session web page URL and approved talk abstracts to ACA organizers.

The scientific quality of a Special Session is the sole responsibility of the session organizers.
