November 21, 2016: Contributed Lecture, Poster and Minisymposium Presentation Abstracts
How to Participate
Individuals are limited to one presentation, either a minisymposium, a contributed talk or a poster presentation. (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 generally consists of four 25-minute presentations, with an additional five minutes for discussion after each presentation. To ensure balance, SIAM prefers a single individual not be the (co)organizer of more than one minisymposium, however, organizers can submit up to two (2) parts per minisymposium, allowing up to eight (8) speakers. In addition, SIAM discourages minisymposia in which most of the speakers or co-authors come from the same institution.
Individuals are limited to one presentation, either a minisymposium, a contributed talk or a poster presentation. In addition, individuals may not be the (co)organizer of more than one minisymposium. Minisymposia organizers can submit a maximum of two parts per minisymposium, scheduling up to eight speakers.
Session organizers must ensure proposed speakers are aware they may present only once during the meeting.
It is recommended that a minisymposium organizer make the first presentation. Each minisymposium speaker should submit an abstract no longer than 1500 characters, including spaces. 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.
Be certain to visit http://www.siam.org/meetings/guidelines/mini_guide.php to review Guidelines for Preparing a Minisymposium Proposal.
Prospective minisymposium organizers must submit a proposal consisting of a title, a description (not to exceed 1500 characters, including spaces), a list of speakers and presentation titles using the Conference Management System available at: http://meetings.siam.org/start.cfm?CONFCODE=ds17.

Contributed Presentations in Lecture or Poster Format
Individuals are limited to one presentation, either a minisymposium, a contributed talk or a poster presentation.
Contributed presentations in lecture or poster format are invited in all areas consistent with the conference themes. A lecture format is generally a 15-minute oral presentation with an additional 5 minutes for discussion. Talk lengths will be determined by the co-chairs at the close of submissions.
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 or a poster, must submit a title and a brief abstract not to exceed 1500 characters, including spaces.
Please submit contributed presentations in lecture or poster format using the Conference Management System available at: http://meetings.siam.org/start.cfm?CONFCODE=ds17.

Authors were notified by e-mail on Wednesday, January 25, 2017.
The Conference Organizing Committee expects every speaker in a scheduled presentation to register and attend the conference.
If it becomes necessary for a speaker to cancel a presentation, he or she should try to find an alternate presenter immediately, preferably a co-author. Contact SIAM at [email protected] immediately with any change to a scheduled presentation.
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 to this request.
