Call for Papers

 

The application of dynamical systems theory to areas outside of mathematics has proven to be an exciting and fruitful endeavor. These applications are highly diverse and interdisciplinary, ranging over such fields as Physics, Biology and Ecology, Engineering, Finance, Industrial Mathematics, Chemistry, Biochemistry and Genetics.

Fifth SIAM Conference on Applications of Dynamical Systems

 

This conference strives to achieve a good mixture of applications and the mathematics that informs them.

The goals of the meeting are a cross-fertilization between the different fields of the applications, and increased communication between the mathematicians who build the theory and the scientists who use it.

How to Contribute

Minisymposium

The organizing committee invites proposals for minisymposia in areas related to the conference themes. A minisymposium consists of four related talks of 30 minutes each (25 minutes for presentation plus 5 minutes for questions and answers). Prospective minisymposium organizers are asked to submit a proposal consisting of a title, a description (not exceeding 100 words), and a list of speakers and titles of their presentations. Each minisymposium speaker should submit a 75-word abstract in LaTeX format to meetings@siam.org. To obtain a minisymposium proposal form, please submit the reply form, or e-mail your request to meetings@siam.org. The form is also available on the World Wide Web at www.siam.org/meetings/miniform.htm.

Presentations in Lecture or Poster Format

Contributions in lecture or poster format are invited in all areas of dynamical systems consistent with the conference themes. Each contributor must submit a 75-word abstract in LaTeX format to meetings@siam.org. Submissions must include a title, author(s) names and affiliations, postal address, e-mail, telephone number, and fax of the submitting author. Accepted papers will be assigned by the organizing committee to either a lecture presentation or a poster. Contributors should indicate which format they prefer. A lecture consists of a 15-minute presentation, with an additional 5 minutes for questions and answers. A poster presentation consists of the use of visual aids, such as 8.5" x 11" sheets for mounting on a 4' x 6' poster board and will be presented in an informal setting that allows presenters to discuss their research with individual attendees. A poster board will be available at the conference for each poster presenter.

The Organizing Committee reserves the right to limit the number of presentations an individual speaker may present in contributed sessions or minisymposia.

Electronic Submission

Every presenter of either a minisymposium or contributed or poster presentation must submit a 75-word abstract to meetings@siam.org, which must be sent electronically by using the LaTeX macro available at www.siam.org/tex/confs/conftex.htm. The 75-word abstracts will appear in the final program.
