Topical Sessions

Invited and Volunteered Papers

These sessions are topically focused with a mix of invited and volunteered papers. Sessions are designed to promote the exchange of interdisciplinary, state-of-the-art information.

Papers for topical sessions were submitted only in the presentation mode noted in the session description. If a topical abstract was submitted in the incorrect mode, the abstract was transferred automatically to a discipline session.
