How to Participate

Participants are normally limited to presenting two talks at most during ICIAM in order to maximize the opportunity for all participants to speak.  If you are invited to speak in more than one minisymposium, we suggest you use the opportunity to nominate a colleague or student to speak about your work.

A minisymposium consists of four, 25-minute presentations, with an additional five minutes for discussion after each presentation. Multiple part minisymposia may be submitted, but will be subject to careful review by the organizing committee before acceptance.  Preference will be given to minisymposia that list all speakers and talk titles. Prospective minisymposium organizers are asked to submit a proposal consisting of a title, a description (not to exceed 100 words), and a list of speakers and titles of their presentations.

It is recommended that a minisymposium organizer make the first presentation. Each minisymposium speaker should submit a 75-word abstract. 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.

To ensure balance, ICIAM prefers that a single individual not be the organizer of more than one minisymposium.  In addition, ICIAM discourages minisymposia in which most of the speakers come from the same organization or if all co-authors on the papers being presented in a minisymposium are from the same organization.
