Conference Speakers

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

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

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 canceled presentation can cause serious inconvenience to the attendees and conference organizers. The committee thanks all speakers in advance for their compliance with this request.
