December 30 , 2005 February 15, 2006 : Minisymposium proposals
February 15, 2006 : Abstracts for contributed and minisymposium presentations
How to Participate
SIAM requests that individuals limit themselves to giving one talk. (This does not apply to invited plenary speakers). The chair 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: http://meetings.siam.org/start.cfm?CONFCODE=ls06
To ensure balance, we would prefer that a single individual not be the organizer of more than one minisymposium.
It is recommended that the 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.
