How to Participate
You are invited to contribute a presentation for this conference in one of the following formats. Please note that individuals will be limited to at most one minisymposium or contributed lecture. There is no limit on the number of poster presentations.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: http://meetings.siam.org/start.cfm?CONFCODE=ds09
It is recommended that the first talk, which could be given by one of the minisymposium organizers, provides an introduction to the theme of the minisymposium. At most two of the organizers should make a presentation in a minisymposium.
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.

Please note: Six-speaker minisymposia are not being solicited for this conference. Only four speaker sessions will be considered.
