Call for Special Sessions

We are well underway with planning an incredible ForestSAT Conference for 2024 and would like to invite you to be part of it by submitting a proposal for a Special Session! Special sessions will typically include 4 – 6 presenters in a 90-minute time slot that is chaired by an expert on the topic, who is normally the session organiser.

The deadline for submitting a Special Session closed on Sunday 23 December. Topics are currently under review by the Organising Committee.

You will be asked to submit the following with your submission:

  • Special Session title
  • Short description of special session and the covered topics
  • Novelty and motivation for the session i.e. why this topic is of interest to the ForestSAT community (short paragraph) 
  • A list of keywords related to the proposal (not more than 10)
  • Short biography of the organiser(s) (three - four sentences)
  • Possible speakers

Proposals will be evaluated based on topic description, novelty and associated impact, and organisers qualifications. We encourage diversity within our field and seek a range of organisers across age, ethnicity, location and field of work. Special sessions will be allocated and notified prior to the opening of abstract submissions.

Under-subscribed Sessions
For Special Sessions that are under-subscribed (due to abstract rejections or a limited number of submissions), an effort will be made to identify regular abstract submissions to complete the session, as deemed appropriate by the conference organisers.
