The organizers are still accepting papers for these and other special sessions so if you have some interesting research to share, submissions can still be sent in until May 15th. More information on the submission process and relevant dates can be found here.
Even if you do not want to turn in any paper of yours, visiting the conference might be interesting if your field of work/ research is anywhere near innovative products and services manufacturing. The event will be helt in Rhodes Island, Greece on 24.-26. of September, 2012.
