Minisymposia Non-member Organizer or Speaker Conference Registration Fee Changes
Since their inception, minisymposia have been an important part of SIAM conferences.  To encourage the best people to participate, SIAM offers a discounted registration rate to minisymposia speakers and organizers who are not members of SIAM.  In the past this rate has been the same as the SIAM member registration fee.  However, in an effort to encourage membership in SIAM, the SIAM Membership Committee recommended to the Board and Council a change in this fee structure.  The recommendation to decrease the discount was accepted and has been implemented.  The discount approved is half the amount of the discount a SIAM Member receives.  In 2012 a non-member minisymposia speaker or organizer fee is $65 less than the non-member rate. 

If you do not join SIAM before you register, SIAM allows attendees who pay the non-member rate to apply the difference between it and the member rate toward buying an individual membership.  We will continue to offer this option and expand the offer to those who pay the non-member minisymposia organizer or speaker rate.  

Conference Registration Fee Includes:
Admission to all technical sessions
Business Meeting (open to SIAG/NLW members)
Coffee breaks daily
Reception and Poster Session
Room set-ups and audio/visual equipment

Please Note: 
It is SIAM policy that all speakers must pre-register. Speakers who do not pre-register will be required to register on site at the higher rate.


Conference Speakers

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 must try to find an alternate presenter immediately, preferably a co-author. Contact SIAM Meeting Manager Kirsten Wilden ([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 with this request.

SIAM is not responsible for the safety and security of attendees’ computers. Do not leave laptop computers unattended.

Please remember to turn off cell phones, pagers, etc., during sessions.
