How to Participate

SIAM requests individuals limit themselves to giving one talk.  Individuals are limited to one presentation, either a minisymposium or contributed talk.  In addition, individuals may be an organizer of only one minisymposium.  This does not apply to invited plenary 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 available at:

It is recommended that a 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.

To ensure balance, SIAM prefers that a single individual not be the organizer of more than one minisymposium.  In addition, SIAM discourages minisymposia in which most of the speakers come from the same organization or if all co-authors on the papers being presented in a minisymposium are from the same organization.

Be certain to visit to review Guidelines for Preparing a Minisymposium Proposal.
