Call for Special Sessions

CALL FOR SPECIAL SESSIONS

SCOPE

We solicit proposals for special sessions that will be held within the 4th EAI International Conference on Smart Objects and Technologies for Social Good (GOODTECHS 2018) that will be held in Bologna in 2018, from November 28 to November 30.

Within the main conference, GOODTECHS 2018 will feature conference special sessions (5 to 6 presentations) and invites the submission of special session proposals. The aim of the special session is to focus on a specific topic of interest for the conference. Special sessions should highlight current topics related to experiences with the design, implementation, deployment, operation and evaluation of smart objects and technologies for social good.

Presentations delivered during the special session are based on original papers that have been selected through peer-review process and that have not been previously published. Accepted special session papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings.
