Looking to present your research? The deadline for minisymposium proposals is October 7, 2019.
A minisymposium generally consists of four 25-minute presentations, with an additional five minutes for discussion after each presentation. To ensure balance, SIAM prefers a single individual not be the organizer or co-organizer of more than one minisymposium, however, organizers can submit up to two (2) parts per minisymposium, allowing up to eight (8) speakers. In addition, SIAM discourages minisymposia in which most of the speakers or co-authors come from the same institution.
Each minisymposium speaker should submit an abstract no longer than 1,500 characters, including spaces. 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.
For more information, please visit the Guidelines for Preparing a Minisymposium Proposal.
