Those people who wish to organise a Special Session in MECOM 2010 are

invited to make a proposal (http://www.mecom2010.net/mini).


For that they must consider:


* Minisymposia should be clearly different from a general presentation

session; they should have an integrative nature and include new data and

ideas on a topic of general interest. Note that only minisymposia which

meet the above requirements shall be considered.


* A minisymposia session should have at least 4 papers, eventually

including a keynote lecture. If the number of papers were more than

eight, the session could be subdivided.  As for allpapers, in order to

include them in the technical program the authors should confirm their

presence in the congress for the oral exposition. This is done in order

to avoid blanks in the final program.


* It should be avoided that an organised session contain mostly papers

from a single research group.


* The organising committe could, in some cases, ask the special session

organizer to include a paper already sent to the congress secretariat

and that be pertinent to the special session theme. This could be done

with the organiser agreement and if the number of papers allows the

inclusion of the paper.


* The policy for publication of papers in the proceedings requires

anonymous reviewprocess.


*No financial support for the minisymposia can be granted.


*Where similar minisymposia are proposed, the Academic Committee will

discuss with the minisymposia proposers to merge the two minisymposia or

arrive to an alternative topic for one of the minisymposium. It is

important that those speakers that have been confirmed for an accepted

session are present in the minisymposium and deliver the presentation. 


*Once the minisymposia proposal is accepted, speakers will be asked to

upload presentation titles and abstracts to the online submission system

by the presentation abstract deadline (May 31, 2010). 


The Special Session organiser should:


   1. Submit to MECOM 2010 Scientific Committee (edvorkin en simytec.com),

before March 30th, 2010:


          * Title of the minisymposium.

themes covered in not more than 250 words.

          * Webpage addres of the session (if any; it is not mandatory),

to be linked from the MECOM 2010 website.

          * Tentative list of authors and speakers to invite.


   2. Invite known specialists to participate, and make eventual



   3. Receive and evaluate the abstracts, taking into account the

congress deadlines.


   4. Send to MECOM 2010 Scientific Committee, regularly or at deadlines
