In addition to the regular sessions, a series of Special Sessions has 
been planned for the meeting. Like the regular sessions, these will 
feature contributions within a selected thematic area, but with a 
different mode of presentation. In Special Sessions, either an overview

Special Sessions is intended to be one of lively debate and more 
extended theoretical discussion of areas which support disparate
