How to Participate

SIAM requests individuals limit themselves to giving one talk, however, the co-chairs of the organizing committee may make exceptions to this request and will consider allowing speakers to present up to two (2) talks. (This does not apply to invited plenary speakers).

You are invited to contribute a presentation for this conference in one of the following formats.

 

Minisymposia

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 (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.

SIAM prefers speakers submit only one (1) oral presentation for the conference, either a minisymposium presentation or contributed lecture. However, the co-chairs may make exceptions to this request and will consider allowing speakers to present up to two (2) talks.

It is recommended that a minisymposium organizer make the first presentation. Each minisymposium speaker should submit an abstract no longer than 1500 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.

Be certain to visit http://www.siam.org/meetings/guidelines/mini_guide.php to review Guidelines for Preparing a Minisymposium Proposal.

Prospective minisymposium organizers must submit a proposal consisting of a title, a description (not to exceed 1500 characters, including spaces), a list of speakers and presentation titles using the Conference Management System available at:  http://meetings.siam.org/start.cfm?CONFCODE=nc17.

Contributed Presentations in Lecture Format

Contributed presentations in lecture format are invited in all areas consistent with the conference themes. A lecture format is generally a 15-minute oral presentation with an additional 5 minutes for discussion. Talk lengths will be determined by the co-chairs at the close of submissions. 

SIAM prefers speakers submit only one (1) oral presentation for the conference, either a minisymposium presentation or contributed lecture. However, the co-chairs may make exceptions to this request and will consider allowing speakers to present up to two (2) talks.

Each contributor must submit a title and a brief abstract not to exceed 1500 characters, including spaces. 

Please submit contributed presentations in lecture format using the Conference Management System available at: http://meetings.siam.org/start.cfm?CONFCODE=nc17.

Acceptance Notification

Speaker Cancellation

The Conference Organizing Committee expects every speaker in a scheduled presentation to register and attend the conference.

If it becomes necessary for a speaker to cancel a presentation, he or she should try to find an alternate presenter immediately, preferably a co-author. Contact SIAM at meetings@siam.org immediately with any change to a scheduled presentation.

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 to this request.
