Important Submission Information

How to Participate

SIAM requests that individuals limit themselves to giving one talk. (This does not apply to invited plenary speakers). The co-chairs of the organizing committee may make exceptions to this request. A poster may be presented in addition to a talk, provided the talk and the poster are on different results. All submissions are subject to review and final approval by the co-chairs.

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

Acceptance Notification

Email notification was sent to participants on October 23, 2019. If you did not receive this message, please contact us.

Email notification for posters submitted after September 10, 2019 will be distributed in late December.

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. See SIAM Policy on Substitute Speakers and Remote Presentations. Contact SIAM Conferences 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.

Additional Information


Additional Information

ACCEPTING ADDITIONAL POSTER SUBMISSIONS through December 31, 2019. Contributed presentations in poster format (only) are invited in all areas consistent with the conference themes. Poster presentations involve the use of non-electronic visual aids for mounting on a 4' x 6' poster board. Each contributor must submit a title and a brief abstract.

Additional submissions will not appear in the final program but will be included in the online program, prior to the start of the conference. Interested parties should submit the following information to [email protected].

Presenting author: name, affiliation, e-mail address
Each co-author: name, affiliation, e-mail address
Poster title
Brief Abstract (1,500 characters or less included spaces)

Note: The extended deadline is for poster submissions only. No additional minisymposium proposals or lecture submissions will be accepted or acknowledged.

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 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.

SIAM also requests speakers submit only one oral presentation for the conference, either a minisymposium presentation or contributed lecture.

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 the conference sessions.

Please visit the Guidelines for Preparing a Minisymposium Proposal.

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. 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.  

Deadline for submission of minisymposium proposals: July 15, 2019 Extended Deadline: August 13, 2019

Deadline for submission of minisymposium speaker abstracts: August 13, 2019 Extended Deadline: September 10, 2019

Important note: People who submit an abstract also have the option to submit a full paper for consideration in the conference proceedings. The instructions for submitting a full paper are given in the following section, entitled “Proceedings.” Submitting a full paper for consideration in the proceedings is optional.

Contributed Presentations in Lecture or Poster Format

Contributed presentations in lecture or poster 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 also requests speakers submit only one oral presentation for the conference, either a minisymposium presentation or contributed lecture.

A poster format involves the use of non-electronic visual aids for mounting on a 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 results.

Proceedings

The SIAM Conference on Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing 2020 (SIAM PP20) and the SIAM Activity Group on Supercomputing (SIAG-SC) invite research paper submissions on parallel algorithms, scalable scientific computing, simulation, visualization, and machine learning. The SIAM PP conference series focuses on the design of numerical and discrete algorithms in the context of modern parallel computer architectures, covering both theory and practice. 

The research papers will be peer-reviewed. We will use a rigorous academic peer-review process and double-blind reviewing. The reviewers will also nominate papers for best paper and best student paper, and the winners will be finalized during the conference. 

Paper submissions should present previously unpublished, original results that are not simultaneously submitted elsewhere.Accepted papers will be published online in the Proceedings of the SIAM Conference on Parallel Processing for Scientific Computing Conference, will be DOI indexed, and will be accessible through the SIAM proceedings web site. Integration of these papers into the SIAM PP series conference program will be with oral presentations in addition to the standard minisymposia and contributed talks. The one-talk-per-speaker SIAM rule will not apply to the accepted papers. Paper authors can present in addition to a minisymposium or contributed presentation. Minisymposia and contributed talk reviews are independent from Proceedings paper reviews. For each accepted paper, an author is required to present at the PP20 conference.

Submission and Review

Proceedings Paper Submission format: 10 pages without references. Supplementary material will be allowed, up to 8 pages. All submissions must be made electronically through the submission website and include an abstract (100–400 words), author contact information, the full list of authors and their affiliations. Full paper submissions must be in PDF formatted printable on both A4 and US letter size paper. All papers must be prepared using the SIAM proceedings format. Papers should contain a maximum of 10 pages of text (in a typeface no smaller than 10 point) or figures, not including references. There is no page limit for references. The authors may submit supplementary material, such as proofs or source code; all supplementary material must be in PDF or ZIP format. Looking at supplementary material is at the discretion of the reviewers. Submission is double blind and authors will need to identify any potential conflicts of interest with PC and Extended Review Committee members. See below for the list of committee members.
