The ISDA'10 invites proposals for special sessions to be held in conjunction with the Conference.
Special sessions provide organizers and participants with an opportunity to concentrate on focussed topics related to the conference. A minimum of 4 papers is required for each special session. All accepted papers will be included in the ISDA'10 conference proceedings.
It is expected that organizers will be chairing their special sessions in ISDA'10.

Proposal Details:
Special session proposals should contain the necessary information to judge the importance, quality and community interest in the proposed topic. Each special session should have one or more designated organizers.
Special session proposals should address the following issues:

Topic of interest: Provide a full description of the proposed special session. What will the special session be about? Why should we believe this is an interesting and significant topic?
Organizers’ biography: Please indicate the background of the organizer(s).
Once a special session proposal is approved it will be immediately announced on the website. Organizers are also expected to help promoting the special sessions by their own means.
