Following the earlier Call for Sessions, the TRAC 2018 Local Organising Committee has selected 11 sessions and 2 workshops for the final conference. Each of these sessions will consist of 6 papers and we are now inviting paper proposals to fill these sessions. Papers will be assigned a 30 minute slot and it is recommended that speakers should not talk for more than 20 minutes to allow time for questions. We encourage applicants to contact session organisers to discuss their planned paper but all proposals have to be submitted to the email@example.com e-mail address.
