Special sessions

The "Call for Special Sessions" will act as a complement to the Technical Program by allowing authors to present their own work, which can address a particular theme or project undertaken by the authors. Special sessions should include thought-provoking presentations which introduce novel ideas and experiences followed by discussions with the audience. We invite you to send any proposals you may have for a special session at EDULEARN24 to our Program Committee. Contact details are below. The deadline for submission is EXTENDED: March 28th, 2024.


  • Sessions last 60 to 90 minutes.
  • Each session should have between 4 and 6 oral presentations.
  • Each presentation should last a maximum of 15 minutes.
  • The session can include active group discussions introduced by the moderators.
