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 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 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 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=uq18.

Deadline for submission of minisymposium proposals: September 18, 2017 DEADLINE EXTENDED to September 25, 2017
Deadline for submission of minisymposium speaker abstracts:  October 16, 2017

 

Poster Minisymposia (Minisymposteria)

A minisymposium of posters (that is, a minisymposterium) consists of a collection of three or more posters by different presenters grouped around a central theme. The posters will be co-located in the poster viewing area.
To submit a Minisymposterium, organizers and poster participants must coordinate and do the following:

  1. Participants must submit their posters by October 16, 2017 using the Conference Management System (CMS): http://meetings.siam.org/start.cfm?CONFCODE=uq18. The poster title should be submitted as “Minisymposterium: [insert poster title]”.
  2. After the posters are submitted to the CMS, Organizers must send an email to meetings@siam.org using the subject line "UQ18 Minisymposterium – [insert minisymposterium title]." The email must include:
    1. Organizer name, affiliation, email address
    2. A short title for the minisymposterium
    3. A short description of the minisymposterium (less than 1500 characters, including spaces)
    4. Poster titles and presenters first name, last name, and affiliation for each poster scheduled within the minisymposterium

Deadline for submission of minisymposterium poster abstracts: October 16, 2017

 

Contributed Presentations in Lecture Format 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 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 1500 characters, including spaces. 

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

Please submit contributed presentations in lecture or poster format using the Conference Management System available at: http://meetings.siam.org/start.cfm?CONFCODE=uq18.

Deadline for submission of contributed abstracts:  October 16, 2017

 

Acceptance Notification

Authors will be notified by e-mail in late November 2017.

 

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.
