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 pre-register. If they do not pre-register, minisymposium organizers and speakers will be required to register at the SIAM on-site member rate and pay $80 more.

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. SIAM Program Manager, Connie Young, must be informed immediately of any change to a scheduled presentation. Please e-mail her at cyoung@siam.org. A “no-show” or cancelled presentation can cause serious inconvenience to the attendees and conference organizers. The committee thanks all speakers in advance for their compliance with this request.
