Special Sessions

Special sessions are very small and specialized events to be held during the conference as a set of oral and poster presentations that are highly specialized in some particular theme or consisting of the works of some particular international project. The goal of special sessions (minimum 4 papers; maximum 9) is to provide a focused discussion on innovative topics. All accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, under an ISBN reference, and on digital support. All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier). The proceedings are submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters Conference Proceedings Citation Index (ISI), DBLP, EI (Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.

Educational environments have been improving at the same time that technologies have arrived to the market. Those technologies bring with them new methodologies used for a better adaptation to the new devices. With this, interaction is one of the aspects, which has been increasing more to facilitate user's labour inside of the learning process. The special session goal will focus on applications, techniques or environments in which interaction design plays a central role by improving the learning process at all levels.

Special Session on Software Engineering for Service and Cloud Computing - SE-CLOUD 2018

Service oriented software engineering and cloud software engineering have emerged to address software as a set of services which deal with user needs. At the same time, we have seen a large number of downfalls due to software failures. This was in part due to the lack of adopting well designed software engineering practices. Now, there is a need to revise these practices given the emergence of service and cloud computing, which will revolutionize the next generation of software engineering. This conference offers a venue for presenting new approaches, processes, techniques, technologies and applications based on the paradigm of Cloud Software Engineering.
