How to Participate

SIAM requests that individuals limit themselves to giving one talk. (This does not apply to invited plenary or topical speakers). The co-chairs of the organizing committee may make exceptions to this request.

You are invited to contribute a presentation for this conference in one of the following formats.


A minisymposium consists of four 25-minute presentations, with an additional five minutes for discussion after each presentation. Prospective minisymposium organizers are asked to submit a proposal consisting of a title, a description (not to exceed 100 words), and a list of speakers and titles of their presentations using the Conference Management System.

To ensure balance, we would prefer that a single individual not be the organizer of more than one minisymposium.

It is recommended that the minisymposium organizer make the first presentation. Each minisymposium speaker should submit a 75-word abstract. The organizing committee will referee minisymposium proposals. The number of minisymposia may be limited to retain an acceptable level of parallelism in the conference sessions.

A lecture with poster format involves an eight minute oral presentation with two minutes for set-up. Thirty minutes will be allotted at the conclusion of the lectures for poster presentation and open discussion.

(b) Contributed Poster Format for Presentation during Poster Session
A poster format involves the use of non-electronic visual aids for mounting on a 4’x 6’ or 4’ x 8’ poster board. A poster session is two hours long.

Each contributor, either for a lecture with poster or a poster, must submit a title and a brief abstract not to exceed 75 words.  Please submit contributed presentations in lecture with poster or poster format using the Conference Management System.

Please note: If submitting a lecture with poster presentation, be sure to select the "Lecture" option under "Contributed Participation."  If submitting a poster for presentation during the poster session, select the "Poster" option under "Contributed Participation."
