Contributed Presentations in Lecture or Poster Format
Contributed presentations in lecture or poster format are invited in all areas consistent with the conference themes. For the 2019 Conference on Control and Its Applications, a lecture format involves a 15-minute oral presentation with an additional 5 minutes for discussion. Additionally, SIAM requests speakers submit only one lecture presentation for the conference, either a minisymposium or contributed lecture. Poster submissions are not restricted.
A poster format involves the use of non-electronic visual aids for mounting on a poster board. Boards will be able to accommodate A0 posters (84,1 x 118,9 cm). A poster session is two hours long.
Each contributor, either for a lecture or a poster, must submit a title and a brief abstract not to exceed 1500 characters, including spaces, in English. Please submit contributed presentations in lecture or poster format using the Conference Management System.

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 three (3) parts per minisymposium, allowing up to twelve (12) speakers. (SIAM prefers a limit of three, though you may reduce to two or increase to four, if requested.) In addition, SIAM discourages minisymposia in which most of the speakers or co-authors come from the same institution.
Prospective minisymposium organizers must submit a proposal, in English, 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.
It is recommended that the first speaker provide an overview of the topic area. 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.
Please visit the Guidelines for Preparing a Minisymposium Proposal for detailed instructions on the preparation of minisympoium proposals.
