One need not be overly concerned with a session topic that might be in conflict or overlapping with topics of other sessions. Multiple sessions in the same technical area will serve to enhance the strength and interest of the area at the Symposium. The Technical Committee will schedule sessions of similar topics at different times over the Symposium period.

Each organized session should have eight to eleven papers that will not be subject to the regular review cycle. The session organizer have full authority in soliciting and accepting papers for the session. The allocated presentation time for each paper is 20 minutes that includes the time for questions from the audience. Each author is limited to presenting no more than three papers (including poster papers) at the Symposium and is required to register in advance. The names of the session organizers will be listed under PIERS organization on the web page, and in the printed version of all PIERS 2002 publications when more than six papers of a organized session are received. The session organizer can then designate a chair and a co-chair for the session.
