There are over 125 approved sessions you could consider proposing to. You may submit to more than one session (if you do so, please let the presiding officers know you are doing so) but may only deliver one paper at the conference itself. Please do not submit proposals to more than two or three sessions, and do not submit the same proposal to multiple sessions. For more information about the conference, check our homepage here:
