How to Participate
SIAM requests that individuals limit themselves to giving one talk. (This does not apply to invited plenary speakers). 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. 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=pp16.
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.

Deadline for submission of minisymposium proposals: September 15, 2015
Deadline for submission of minisymposium speaker abstracts: October 13, 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 lecture format is generally a 15-minute oral presentation with an additional 5 minutes for discussion. Talk lengths will be determined by the co-chairs at the close of submissions. A poster format involves the use of non-electronic visual aids for mounting on a height (157cm) x width (115 cm) 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: http://meetings.siam.org/start.cfm?CONFCODE=pp16.
