Submissions & Deadlines


Important Submission Information

How to Participate

Individuals may give two lectures, or one lecture and one poster, if the topics are significantly different. This rule includes plenary lectures, minisymposium lectures, contributed lectures, and posters.

Please note that all submissions are subject to review and final approval by the co-chairs.

You are invited to contribute a presentation in one of the formats listed below.

Acceptance Notification

Authors will be notified by email in May 2022.

Speaker Cancellation

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

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. See SIAM Policy on Substitute Speakers and Remote Presentations. Contact SIAM at [email protected] immediately with any change to a scheduled presentation.

A “no-show” or cancelled presentation can cause serious inconvenience to the attendees and organizers. The committee thanks all speakers in advance for their compliance to this request.

While the expectation is that the COVID situation will be stable enough for the conference to be held physically, there remains uncertainty regarding international travel at the current moment. If an author cannot physically attend the conference due to COVID concerns, an alternative arrangement will be made possible.

Additional Information

Submission Formats


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 organizer or co-organizer of more than one minisymposium, however, organizers can submit up to three (3) parts per minisymposium, allowing up to twelve (12) speakers. In addition, SIAM discourages minisymposia in which most of the speakers or co-authors come from the same institution.

A minisymposium comprised of multiple parts (up to 3) will be counted as a SINGLE minisymposium.

It is recommended the first speaker provide an overview of the topic area. Each minisymposium speaker should submit an abstract no longer than 1,500 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 sessions.

Please visit the Guidelines for Preparing a Minisymposium Proposal.

SIAM requires minisymposium organizers propose sessions with a minimum of three (3) confirmed speakers by the minisymposium submission deadline. Sessions submitted with a majority of speakers listed as “TBD/TBA,” or using placeholders, risk immediate rejection.

Prospective minisymposium organizers must submit a proposal consisting of a title, a description (not to exceed 1,500 characters, including spaces), a list of speakers, and presentation titles using the Conference Management System.

Deadline for submission of minisymposium proposals: DEADLINE EXTENDED to March 7, 2022 (11:59 p.m. Eastern Time)

Deadline for submission of minisymposium speaker abstracts: DEADLINE EXTENDED to March 7, 2022 (11:59 p.m. Eastern Time)

Contributed Presentations in Lecture or Poster Format

Contributed presentations in lecture or poster format are invited in all areas consistent with the themes. A lecture format is generally a 25-minute oral presentation with an additional five (5) minutes for discussion. Talk lengths will be determined by the co-chairs at the close of submissions.

A poster format involves the use of non-electronic visual aids for mounting on a 4’ x 6’ or 4’ x 8’ poster board. 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 1,500 characters, including spaces.

A poster may be presented in addition to a talk, provided the talk and the poster are on different topics.

Please submit contributed presentations in lecture or poster format using the Conference Management System.

Deadline for submission of contributed abstracts: DEADLINE EXTENDED to March 7, 2022 (11:59 p.m. Eastern Time)
