It's possible but I doubt it would go down as a Special Session. That  
isn't to discourage anyone from trying though.

You could surely apply for a software demonstration slot, and anyone  
can do a BoF.

You could also apply for a SIG meeting, but ISCB has become  
increasingly careful in evaluating which SIGs to hold with respect to  
how much risk they run to lose money (as ISCB absorbs the losses).

Suzi's suggestion is a good one. You could also work with BOSC to  
devote a session to semantic web tools and software, which might in  
fact benefit both crowds. The only constraint from that is that all  
software being presented would have to be open source.
