Publicise your session!

As a session organiser, please, publicise your session; please take responsibility actively to make sure that any names speakers submit their abstracts and please do your best to solicit additional papers.  You can point participants and prospective authors to your session description page which has the URL: https://www.scidatacon.org/IDW2018/sessions/NNN/ where NNN is the three number session ID.
 

If you wish to make any improvements to the session description, particularly for example to attract additional papers, you can do so by sending a revised text to info@scidatacon.org as well as to Asha Law <asha@codata.org> and to Simon Hodson <simon@codata.org>

Please note that if a given session receives a greater number of quality papers than foreseen, there is the possibility of expanding that session over more than one slot.  Conversely, if a session does not receive a sufficient number of quality papers then the session will not be retained in the programme and any accepted papers will be redistributed accordingly.
