Proposals for Special Sessions are invited by February 15, 2024

We are delighted to invite contributors to chair Special Sessions linked to the conference theme: The Roles of Humans and Technology in Shaping the Future. The conference organisers invite proposals for special sessions to complement the regular program with new or emerging topics of particular interest. Each session should comprise at least 4 papers, which will go through the normal review process. Typically, the session organiser/chair would be an author and presenter of one of the papers. Special Sessions provide an opportunity for projects or any group of authors to present their work. Proposals for Special Sessions should include information on the 1) Title of the proposed special session, 2) Names/affiliation of the organiser(s) (including a brief bio and contact info), and 3) Session abstract (significance of the topic and rationale for the proposed session). Those proposing Special Sessions bear the responsibility of determining the complete composition of the session, including the selection of authors and presenters. All participants and speakers in the Special Sessions, including organisers, must pay the registration fee. Special Sessions have a duration of 1 hour and 30 minutes, and they will be held during the conference in parallel to regular sessions.

Proposals for Special Sessions must be submitted before February 15, 2024 to nordicsymposium [at] with the name of the file being the Special Session title (abbreviated, if necessary). Proposals will be evaluated by the conference’s Scientific Committee based on the criteria of Relevance, Timeliness, and Novelty, as well as the Qualifications of the session organisers. 

We are looking forward to seeing you in Stavanger in September!
