How to Participate

You are invited to contribute a presentation for this conference in one of the following formats.


Individuals are limited to one presentation, either a minisymposium, a contributed talk or a poster presentation. In addition, individuals may be an organizer of only one minisymposium. 

Minisymposia organizers can submit a maximum of two parts per minisymposium, scheduling up to eight speakers.

A minisymposium generally 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:

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.

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 or co-authors come from the same institution

Be certain to visit to review Guidelines for Preparing a Minisymposium Proposal.

Deadline for submission of minisymposium proposals: March 30, , 2015
Deadline for submission of minisymposium speaker abstracts: April 27, 2015


Contributed Presentations in Lecture or Poster Format

Contributed presentations in lecture or poster format are invited in all areas consistent with the conference themes.

A poster format involves the use of non-electronic visual aids for mounting on 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 75 words. Please submit contributed presentations in lecture or poster format using the Conference Management System available at:
