The following announcement was shared by the SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE21) chairs.
SIAM is seeking proposals for minitutorials to be conducted at the SIAM Conference on Computational Science and Engineering (CSE21), March 1-5, 2021 in Ft. Worth, TX, USA. The SIAM CSE conference enables in-depth technical discussions on a wide variety of major computational efforts on large-scale problems in science and engineering, fosters the interdisciplinary culture required to meet these challenges, and promotes the training of the next generation of computational scientists. SIAM CSE draws thousands of attendees from academia, industry, and research laboratories.
A minitutorial offers attendees a great opportunity to learn in a hands-on fashion from experts, and is a good way to raise the visibility of new projects and topics. Subjects of recent minitutorials at SIAM CSE have included numerical libraries (libMesh, PETSc, PRIMME), simulation tools (Firedrake, MOOSe), as well as general productivity tools and best practices (git, licenses, productivity & sustainability, etc.). Proposals are encouraged for minitutorials on any topic relevant to research in computational science and engineering. Suggested areas include the themes listed here.
Minitutorial proposals should be for material to fill either one or two sessions that will run concurrently with minisymposia. A minitutorial is not a minisymposium, and successful proposals will clearly describe how they intend to be not just informative, but instructive.
Accepted minitutorials will be eligible for some reimbursements of travel expenses from SIAM. Reimbursements are capped at $1500 to be divided between presenters, with a cap of $500 per presenter. SIAM will additionally waive the conference registration for up to 3 presenters.
Click here to reach the submission webpage. The deadline for submission is December 13, 2019, and presenters of accepted proposals will be notified in January 2020.
