Special Sessions


Special Sessions follow the same format as Regular Sessions. The time frames are slots of 15 min for Contributed Lectures and 15 or 30 min for Invited Lectures.

A Special Session consists of 3 to 10 lectures that focus on specific emerging and/or hot topics in ultrasound not covered by the scope of Regular Sessions (e.g. interdisciplinary topics).

The collection of topical specific sessions forms the backbone of the congress"s scientific program. Volunteer organizers will develop their Special Session. The Special Session organizers are responsible for the technical content of their Special Session; they suggest invited lecturers to the Co-Chairs of the Scientific Committee, solicit appropriate contributed papers and review the dedicated submitted abstracts.

Invitation to become a Special Session Organizer

Persons with leading competence in a timely topic of ultrasonics are cordially invited to suggest Special Session titles and Invited Lecturers to the Co-Chairs of the ICU Scientific Committee, Prof. Wolfgang Sachse and Prof. Ewald Benes.
