How to Participate

SIAM requests that individuals limit themselves to giving one talk. (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:

The CMS is currently designed to receive four minisymposium participants. Minisymposium organizers interested in having a 5th presenter, should: FIRST: submit their minisymposium in the Conference Management System at:, THEN contact Nicole Jorlett ([email protected]) with the subject line: "SIAM DM08 Conference Minisymposium", include in the body of the email the request for the 5th speaker, in which minisymposium (please include the name of the minisymposium), the name of the presenter AS IT WILL APPEAR, their affiliation, email, presentation title, and summary of no more than 75 words.

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

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.
