Important Submission Information

How to Participate

Individuals are limited to one presentation—either a minisymposium, a contributed talk, or a poster presentation. (This does not apply to invited plenary speakers). The co-chairs of the organizing committee may make exceptions to this request.

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

Acceptance Notification

Authors will be notified by email in late March 2021.

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.

Additional Information

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.

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

Individuals are limited to one presentation, either a minisymposium, a contributed talk or a poster presentation. Minisymposium session organizers and individual speakers are equally responsible for ensuring participants adhere to the one talk per person rule.

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. Minisymposium organizers will be required to select a time zone for their session during the submission process. This information will be used during the scheduling process in an effort to schedule minisymposia at a time least inconvenient to the session participants.

Deadline for submission of minisymposium proposals: October 26, 2020 November 23, 2020 DEADLINE EXTENDED to January 11, 2021 (11:59 p.m. Eastern Time)
Deadline for submission of minisymposium speaker abstracts: November 23, 2020 December 7, 2020 DEADLINE EXTENDED to January 25, 2021 (11:59 p.m. Eastern Time)


Minitutorials

A minitutorial ordinarily is a two-hour session with the purpose of highlighting a future direction or emerging area. Designed for an audience of nonexperts, a minitutorial can provide an overview of a hot topic or survey an area of broad interest, and it should aim to enhance excitement about a new topic. Subjects of minitutorials at recent SIAM DS meetings have included Dynamic Mode Decompositions and Koopman Analysis, Stochastic Population Dynamics, Data Assimilation, Rigorous Numerics in Dynamics, Stochastic Dynamics of Rare Events, and Network Dynamics.

A minitutorial must be attractive to the large and varied SIAM community, including members from industry, students, practitioners, theoreticians, physical and biological scientists, engineers, and computer scientists. A minitutorial should get an audience of nonexperts interested in and excited about a new topic.

It is imperative that a minitutorial be truly tutorial and introductory. The exposition must be outstanding. Speakers should avoid technical jargon and formalism, and instead focus on intuition and insight. A minitutorial should cover all aspects of a problem: applications, as well as computational and theoretical issues.

Proposals are encouraged for minitutorials on any topic relevant to research in dynamical systems and their applications. As in recent DS conferences, DS21 is expected to include two minitutorials, and each speaker (up to a maximum of three speakers) in an accepted minitutorial will be eligible for free conference registration and a $500 travel allowance.

Proposals should include the minitutorial title, a list of up to three speakers, a description of the subject and its relevance, and a discussion of the minitutorial format and methods. Submissions will be reviewed by the conference organizers for novelty, timeliness, and expected appeal to the SIAM DS community; in addition, balance in topics will be sought across the selections. More detailed information and the proposal submission form can be found here.

Selections will be announced in August 2020.

Deadline for submission of minitutorials: July 1, 2020 (11:59 p.m. Eastern Time)


Contributed Presentations in Lecture or Poster Format

Individuals are limited to one presentation, either a minisymposium, a contributed talk or a poster presentation.

Contributed presentations in lecture or poster format are invited in all areas consistent with the themes. A lecture format is generally a 15-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 preparation and posting of a graphical presentation in a format such as PDF or PPT, which may include animations. Poster presenters will be encouraged to record a video walk-through of the poster that will be made available in the virtual poster session. Poster interactions will be supported through features of the conference platform including video chat and an asynchronous text-based question-and-answer system.

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.

Please submit contributed presentations in lecture or poster format using the Conference Management System. Submitting authors will be required to select a time zone during the submission process. This information will be used during the scheduling process.

Deadline for submission of contributed abstracts: November 23, 2020 December 7, 2020 DEADLINE EXTENDED to January 25, 2021 (11:59 p.m. Eastern Time)
