[End of update]
Note that all organizers and speakers are asked to pay the appropriate conference registration fee. Exceptions apply for invited speakers, minitutorial speakers and SIAM student travel awardees.
Speakers and minisymposium organizers are asked to respect the SIAM rule of one (1) oral presentation per person, either a minisymposium presentation or contributed lecture. This rule does not apply to invited plenary speakers and mini-tutorial speakers. The co-chairs of the organizing committee may make exceptions to this request.
A poster may be presented in addition to a talk, provided the talk and the poster are on different results.
All submissions are subject to review and final approval by the co-chairs.
You are invited to contribute a presentation for this conference in one of the following formats.
A minisymposium is a two-hour session with 4 talks of 25 minutes each plus 5 minutes for discussion after each presentation. To ensure balance, SIAM prefers a single individual not be the (co)organizer of more than one minisymposium. However, organizers can submit two (2) parts per minisymposium, allowing eight (8) speakers. SIAM discourages minisymposia in which most of the speakers or co-authors come from the same institution. It is recommended that a minisymposium organizer make the first presentation to introduce the topic. To ensure balance one organizer may give a presentation in a one-part minisymposium and up to two organizers may give presentations in a two-part minisymposium.
Poster Minisymposium (Minisymposterium)
A minisymposium of posters (that is, a minisymposterium) consists of a collection of four (4) posters by different presenters grouped around a central theme. The posters will be co-located in the poster viewing area.
A poster format involves the use of non-electronic visual aids for mounting on a poster board. A typical poster session is two hours long. The size of the poster will be determined by the co-chairs at the close of submissions.
Contributed Presentations in Lecture or Poster Format
Contributed presentations in lecture or poster format are invited in all areas consistent with the conference themes. A lecture format is generally a 15 minute oral presentation with additional 5 minutes for discussion. Talk lengths will be determined by the co-chairs at the close of submissions.
Speakers are asked to respect the SIAM rule and submit only one oral presentation for the conference, either a minisymposium presentation or a contributed lecture. A poster may be presented in addition to a talk, provided the talk and the poster are on different results.
