March 2, 2016: extended to March 30, 2016: Minisymposium Proposal Submissions
March 30, 2016: Contributed Lecture, Poster and Minisymposium Presentation Abstracts
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. A poster may be presented in addition to a talk, provided the talk and the poster are on different results. All submissions are subject to review and final approval by the co-chairs.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 organizer of more than one minisymposium, allowing up to 4 speakers. In addition, SIAM discourages minisymposia in which most of the speakers or co-authors come from the same institution.
SIAM also requests speakers submit only one oral presentation for the conference, either a minisymposium presentation or contributed lecture.It is recommended that a minisymposium organizer make the first presentation in order to give an overview of the topic. 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.
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 100 words), a list of speakers and presentation titles using the Conference Management System available at: http://meetings.siam.org/start.cfm?CONFCODE=ED16.
