SIAM Conference on Mathematics of Planet Earth

Category: Meeting
Description:

Sponsored by the SIAM Activity Group on Mathematics of Planet Earth.

Preparations for the inaugural conference of the SIAM Activity Group on "Mathematics of Planet Earth" (MPE16) are well under way. 

--- Conference Themes---
Climate change, biodiversity, infectious diseases, sustainability, energy, food, and water are among the areas of greatest global concern. The new SIAM Activity Group on Mathematics of Planet Earth (SIAG/MPE) provides a forum for mathematicians and computational scientists engaged in these critical priority areas. The interests of SIAG/MPE span the range from developing quantitative techniques to providing policy makers with tools for qualitative decision support.

---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 organizer of more than one minisymposium, allowing up to 4 speakers. Minisymposium organizers who wish to submit a two part minisymposium, allowing up to 8 speakers, must email the conference co-chairs for approval on or before March 2, 2016. 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 in order to give an overview of the topic. 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.

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 100 words), a list of speakers and presentation titles using the Conference Management System available at: http://meetings.siam.org/start.cfm?CONFCODE=pe16

Deadline for submission of minisymposium proposals: March 2, 2016
Deadline for submission of minisymposium speaker abstracts: March 30, 2016

---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 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 75 words.

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=pe16

Deadline for submission of contributed abstracts: March 30, 2016
