The call for minisymposia is now closed (deadline was 15.01.2017). Minisymposia can be proposed by potential organizers; proposals should be sent to the program comittee (chair: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.). The rules for proposing a minisymposium are:

  • A minisymposium is a coordinated meeting consisting of research presentations on particular topics of current research interest.
  • Because of the limited number of available rooms and the large number of sections there will only be a very small number of minisymposia (6-8 at most).
  • Minisymposia have to be proposed by potential organizers. A proposal should contain a title, the name(s) of the organizer(s), a short description of the main topics, a list of potential speakers (6-15 talks, these speakers need not have confirmed participation).
  • The organizers are responsible for providing a list of speakers to the organizers of the conference.
  • All speakers and organizers of a minisymposium have to be registered participants of the conference and have to pay the registration fee.
  • Minisymposia do not receive any funding from the conference.
  • The deadline for submitting proposals for minisymposia is 15.01.2017.
  • Submitted proposals will be considered by the program committee shortly after the deadline. The decision will be based on the scientific quality and the up-to-dateness of the proposed topics.
