Metrology for Archaeology and Cultural Heritage
December 4 - 6, 2019 | Florence, Italy

Special sessions have the main aim of creating a mini-workshop on a specific topic, where researchers working on the same argument can make knowledge, familiarize, exchange ideas, create cooperation.
Special Sessions are being developed by designated chairs.

If you, as an author, have a paper that could be included in one of these sessions, you may submit an abstract selecting your favorite session. If the abstract is not selected for the session, it may be included in another part of the technical program.

To submit abstracts to a special session, please follow the submission instructions for regular sessions, but remind to specify the special session to which the paper is directed.
