Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by SCOPUS, Google Scholar, The DBLP Computer Science Bibliography, Semantic Scholar, Microsoft Academic, Engineering Index (EI) and Conference Proceedings Citation Index.


Special session proposals are accepted until:

September 23, 2020


If you wish to propose a new Special Session please kindly fill out and submit this Expression of Interest form.

Scope

Computational and technological developments that incorporate natural language are proliferating. Adequate coverage encounters difficult problems related to partiality, underspecification, and context-dependency, which are signature features of information in nature and natural languages. Furthermore, agents (humans or computational systems) are information conveyors, interpreters, or participate as components of informational content. Generally, language processing depends on agents' knowledge, reasoning, perspectives, and interactions.

Scope

Today, we are witnessing the advent of ubiquitous computing. Computers are not special machines, they are common apparatus.  Ubiquitous computers naturally lead parallel and distributed computations.  We would like to investigate effective domain specific parallelization and distribution solutions for many applications in various levels.  The solutions include the design of parallel models inspired from cell signal processing or social insects.  Through this session, we would like to foster any inspirations for designing and developing novel computational applications based on parallel and distributed systems especially agent technologies.  We believe that the challenges of this session will open new horizons for distributed and multi-agent systems.

Scope

With the help of artificial intelligence-powered services and tools the heritage sector is working towards the next level of access to and (re)use of digitized collections. In recent years libraries, archives and museums have started to apply machine learning and advanced knowledge bases to contextually enrich digitized objects, audio-visual content and texts and to make these retrievable in novel ways. In doing so institutions aim to increase the impact of their collections among a growing and diversifying audience. This special session welcomes papers that reflect upon, discuss and present the technical and societal challenges (e.g. labour to produce labeled datasets, heterogeneity of data, bias in training sets) digital heritage professionals and researchers are facing when trying to capitalise on the transformative power of artificial intelligence in the context of digital archive, image, and audio/visual collections. Next to position papers, we are also looking for papers in which project consortia discuss their approach and present first results.
