How to Participate
You are invited to contribute a presentation for this conference in one of the following formats.
Individuals are limited to one presentation, either a minisymposium, a contributed talk or a poster presentation. In addition, individuals may be an organizer of only one minisymposium.
NEW Minisymposium Format! A minisymposium consists of four 15-minute presentations, with an additional five minutes for discussion after each presentation. Organizers must ensure proposed speakers are aware that they may present only once during the meeting. In addition, SIAM discourages minisymposia in which most of the speakers come from the same organization or if all co-authors on the papers being presented in a minisymposium are from the same organization.
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=ds13.
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.
