Special Sessions, held in parallel with the general conference, are an integral part of the conference. They provide researchers in focused areas the opportunity to meet and present their work, and offer a forum for interaction among the broader community of technology-enhanced learning, and online engineering worldwide. Special sessions’ papers are required to meet the same standards as papers in the general conference and are published in the same conference proceedings.

Topics of interest are in all areas of

  • Technology Enhanced Learning
  • Collaborative Learning
  • Engineering Pedagogy
  • And others like main conference topics

Proposals must be submitted to Conftool® Submission Server (link will be available in time). Special Session papers will later be reviewed by at least two members of the special session's program committee, and acceptance decisions will be made by the conference program co-chairs and Special Sessions Chair. Organizers of special sessions will work closely with Conference Committee and are expected to respond promptly and communicate regularly in order to maximize the potential impact of the track.

Proposals must be made using the special session proposal template (including the necessary information, such as title, organizer(s), special session's program committee, etc.). If the proposal will be accepted, it will be used as basis for the Call for Special Session Papers.

A Special Session will include at least 5 papers and the review process is under the responsibility of the person organizing the special session (i.e., session chair).

If a special session has 5 or more paid presentations, the conference fee for the session chair will be waived.

A special session that fails to attract enough papers will be merged into the general conference or suitable alternative session.
