    >proposal, and you will receive an acceptation by e-mail, in few days. This
    >acceptation is not a final approval of the proposed session, but a
    >pre-approval.
    >Final approval will depend on identifying at least five papers for the
    >proposed session and informing, at least,
    >about their titles. With this acceptation a) the proposed session will be
    >included in the conference web page as well as its organizer and chair
    >name: and b) its organizer will be able to announce his/her invited session
    >in the context of SCI 2001, by any media that he/she thinks appropriated,
    >such as: Web page, hard copy call for papers, call for papers attached to
    >e-mails, etc.
    >4) Contact researchers and/or practitioners in your field to see if they
    >can contribute a paper to your proposed session and attend at SCI 2001.
    >5) Collect the extended abstracts or the paper drafts from each prospective
    >participant.
    >6) Write a summary (1-2 page) with the main objectives, which must be
    >related to the invited/selected papers.
