Submissions

[Update on 07 October 2019] The submission for UQ20 is closed.

Submission Instructions

Please read the following information carefully since the submission procedure for UQ20 is not handled by SIAM’s conference management system.

For UQ20 submissions we use the Converia server. To submit your contribution you will be asked to create an account on the Converia server. With the same account you will be able to register for the conference as soon as the registration has opened.

 

Abstracts

Note that the submissions are called “papers” in the Converia system, however, we do not accept full manuscripts for UQ20. “Paper” refers to the abstract of an oral presentation or poster presentation. You will be able to select the form of presentation during the submission process.

Important note: The abstract submission for all contributions is in plain text. We do not accept LaTeX symbols.

How do I submit a minisymposium?

Note that the minisymposium (MS) submission is a one-stage process. In particular, the titles and abstracts of all presentations must be submitted together with the MS title and abstract.

To submit a MS, organizers and speakers must coordinate. In particular, there is only one contact person for the MS called “main chair” in the Converia server. The main chair (the MS organizer)

  • is responsible for collecting and submitting all information on the MS,
  • carries out all updates and changes regarding the titles, speakers, and speaker abstracts,
  • notifies the speakers about the acceptance of the MS.

Necessary information for minisymposia

Before submitting the MS the main chair must collect the following information:

  1. organizer and (if applicable) co-organizer given name, family name, affiliation, country, and email address
  2. title for the MS
  3. abstract for the MS (up to 1500 characters, including spaces)
  4. For each presentation scheduled within the MS: presentation title, presentation abstract (up to 1500 characters), authors’ given name, family name, company / institution, country, and email address

For each presentation within the MS: Identify the speaker (“presenter”)

Necessary information minisymposium

Minisymposium > 4

Note that the MS submission is limited to four (4) presentations (called “papers”) in the Converia system. If you wish to submit a two-part minisymposium, it is required that you submit the two parts separately, clearly indicating “Part I” and “Part II” in the title of the two separate submissions. The abstract and organizer information for Part II of the MS should be copied from Part I. Unfortunately, it is not possible to do this automatically in the Converia system.

[Update on 12 Sep 2019: It is possible to submit a minisymposium with up to three parts, that is, up to 12 speakers. Again, the three parts should be submitted separately, clearly indicating "Part I", "Part II" and "Part III" in the title of the three separate submissions.]

Having collected all of the above information and after logging into the Converia server, the main chair selects the button “Submit new session”. At the bottom of the page select the “Form of presentation” “minisymposium”. The main chair will then enter the MS information as prompted by the Converia system.
