'''Sessions''' are thought as traditional conference sessions proposed and organised by one or more scientists, and focused on a concrete subject. Session participants will present their research work, which should be innovative enough either in the techniques and methods developed or in the application field. A formal scheme will be followed in presentation: 15-20 minutes of presentation and 5 minutes for questions. Sessions will be structured in time slots. The number of time slots assigned to a session will depend on the number of accepted session papers.

The congress will be built around three complementary tracks of plenary sessions, sessions and workshops.

'''Plenary sessions''' will be invited talks given by recognised scientists and professionals within the field of the integration of Sciences and Information Technology for Environmental Assessment and Decision Making.

'''Sessions''' are thought as traditional conference sessions proposed and organised by one or more scientists, and focused on a concrete subject. Session participants will present their research work, which should be innovative enough either in the techniques and methods developed or in the application field. A formal scheme will be followed in presentation: 15-20 minutes of presentation and 5 minutes for questions. Sessions will be structured in time slots. The number of time slots assigned to a session will depend on the number of accepted session papers.

Session participants should send their full papers, at due time, for peer-reviewing process managed by session organisers. All accepted papers will be published in the electronic proceedings of the congress (with ISBN).

A selection of the best full papers from all the sessions will be considered to be published, after an extension and additional reviewing period, in one or more special issues of international journals.

'''Workshops''' are designed to inspire and foster discussions on most important topics within the field. These workshops follow the innovative track of thematic workshops started in iEMSs 2006. Workshops will be proposed and organized by one or more scientists. Workshop organisers will produce, at due time, a position-paper on the special topic of the workshop exploring opportunities, challenges, solving techniques and/or methods, validation procedures and applications. position-papers are reviewed in order to make appropriate comments and suggestions by the scientific committee of the congress. Position papers will be available on-line in advance to let workshop participants to react on the main ideas behind theme.

In order to devote ample time to discussion, and not to convert them in standard sessions, workshops will be divided in, at least, two time slots: one for presentations and another one for discussion. The aim of the presentation slot is that organisers expose main key ideas behind their position paper (10-15 minutes), and that participants with accepted abstract expose their opinions and complementary points of view about the topics and/or their main comments on the position paper (5-10 minutes each one).

The aim of the discussion slot is to foster generalised discussion about the ideas shallowly described in the presentation slot. Final outcome of the workshop will be an improved version of the position-paper reflecting the conclusions of the discussion. This improved version will include as co-authors the active participants in the workshop.

Workshop participants should send their abstracts (2 pages at most) at due time, for peer-reviewing process managed by workshop organisers. All position-papers and accepted workshop participant abstracts will be published in the electronic proceedings of the congress (with ISBN).

Updated position papers incorporating the output discussions of the workshops will be considered to be published, after an extension and additional reviewing period, in one or more special issues of international journals.
