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, DBLP, Semantic Scholar, EI and Web of Science / Conference Proceedings Citation Index.

Special session proposals are accepted until:

October 17, 2024

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

Our special session, "Quantum Artificial Intelligence and Optimization", is designed as a collaborative bridge between classical artificial intelligence (AI) and emerging quantum computing technologies. It aims to facilitate knowledge transfer and synergistic exploration among AI experts and quantum computing pioneers. This session will delve into how quantum computing can enhance AI through improved optimization algorithms, quantum machine learning models, and the seamless integration of quantum and classical computing techniques. Participants will engage in discussions on theoretical foundations, practical applications, and the development of hybrid systems that leverage the best of both worlds. By focusing on collaboration, this platform encourages the sharing of insights, challenges, and future directions, paving the way for breakthroughs in AI capabilities powered by quantum advancements.
