A satellite meeting is a meeting that takes place within a few weeks of ICIAM 2011 on a topic of interest to ICIAM attendees in a location that may make it convenient for ICIAM participants to combine the events into a single trip. Satellite meetings have no official connection to ICIAM beyond a cross listing on the ICIAM 2011 webpages.
ICIAM does not provide any financial or other support for satellite meetings. Satellite meetings are organized and run by independent organizations or groups. (For example, around the time of the ICIAM 2007 Conference in Zurich, there were more than two dozen satellite meetings, listed at http://www.iciam07.ch/satellite_conferences.)
If you are organizing or considering organizing a meeting that would qualify as a satellite meeting, please contact Mary Pugh (
) as soon as possible with the following information:
Name of meeting
Estimated number of participants
Conference webpage (if available)
Other relevant information, such as scope or content of meeting, organizing society or affiliate, etc
Feel free to contact us with tentative information for meetings that are not fully planned. This information may be useful to others planning related meetings.
An embedded meeting is a meeting of some other organization that takes place during the week of the ICIAM Conference and that may share some resources with the main ICIAM Conference. (During the ICIAM 2007 Conference in Zurich, there were four embedded meetings listed at http://www.iciam07.ch/embedded_meetings.)
If you're interested in organizing an embedded meeting, please contact Randy LeVeque at
