Conference Speakers

The Conference Organizing Committee expects every speaker of a scheduled presentation to register and attend the conference.

Please Note: SIAM asks that the speaker(s) preregister so all program materials are ready for them when they arrive and check in at the registration desk.

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. The SIAM Conference Department must be informed immediately of 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.
