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, Microsoft Academic, EI and Web of Science / Conference Proceedings Citation Index.

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.

The session covers theoretical work, applications, approaches, and techniques for computational models of information and its presentation by language (artificial, human, or natural in other ways). Its goal is to promote computational systems of intelligent natural language processing and related models of information, thought, mental states, cognition, knowledge, reasoning, and argumentation.

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.
