No. At least, you can't recover the window/tab page/buffer layout. But, you can recover changes to the files you were editing, as long as you have kept swap files enabled.

Not a very good way, since the info in a session file could change at any time during Vim execution. You could set up a CursorHold autocmd to call :mksession I suppose. You could even add other events like BufWinEnter to try to make changes as needed. Normally this is done on VimLeave instead, which won't help you in the case of a system crash. For example:
