Conference Speakers
The Conference Organizing Committee expects every speaker of a scheduled presentation to register and attend the conference. Speakers who do not pre-register will be required to register on-site at the higher rate.

If it becomes necessary for a speaker to cancel a presentation, he or she must try to find an alternate presenter immediately, preferably a co-author. SIAM Program Manager, Kirsten Wilden, must be informed immediately of any change to a scheduled presentation. Please e-mail her at A “no-show” or cancelled presentation can cause serious inconvenience to the attendees and conference organizers. The committee thanks all speakers in advance for their compliance with this request.
