Special Sessions

Proposals for special sessions focusing on fundamental theories and innovative applications of soft computing are welcome. Submission of proposals should include a short description of the session, its relevance to the conference, and a list of potential contributors. Special sessions will be open to all participants. Organizers of Special Sessions will be responsible for a reviewing process.

Student Participation

Student participation is highly encouraged, be it submitting and presenting a paper, attending the conference, or volunteering at the conference. The Program Committee will select the best student papers prior to the conference. These papers will be presented at a special session during the conference. The student author of the best paper (based on both the written submission and the oral presentation, to be selected during this session) will receive an award.
