MINISYMPOSIA AND POSTERS PROGRAM
- Haohuan Fu (National Supercomputing Center in Wuxi, China)
- Simon Scheidegger (University of Zurich, Switzerland)
A minisymposium is a two-hour session of four 30-minute slots on a topic of current importance in computational science that showcases research related to domain science, applied mathematics, computer science and software engineering, and is an ideal platform for promoting interdisciplinary communication.
The PASC19 Minisymposium and Posters Committee will assess minisymposium proposals based on the following criteria:
- The research described should be of significant current interest to the given scientific domain, and ideally, have potential application to other scientific domains.
- The research should be based on state-of-the-art numerical methods.
- Proposals should include speakers from multiple institutions and/or countries, and be designed such that the speakers bring a range of different perspectives and views to the topic.
Note: Organizers are strongly encouraged to include women and members of other underrepresented groups.
The minisymposium submission for PASC19 is a two-stage process. The first stage is an expression of interest (deadline: 7 December 2018) which includes a short description of the proposed minisymposium (title and abstract). The second stage (deadline: 11 January 2019), the full submission, should include an extended abstract along with proposed speakers and titles for four 30-minute presentation slots (typically, these slots are 25-minute talks with 5 minutes for questions). The minisymposium organizer is permitted to give one of the four presentations her/himself. If desired, the fourth 30-minute slot could be a panel discussion or open discussion forum.
Poster presentations provide an ideal opportunity for the exchange of ideas and expertise within and between the various computational science domains represented at the conference. Poster submissions should describe topical research related to domain science, applied mathematics, computer science or software engineering.
Poster presenters will be given the possibility to “pitch” their posters to the conference audience in a rapid-fire flash session before the scheduled poster session. Posters with the most stimulating content will be recognized in an award ceremony on the final day of the conference.
13 January 2019: Deadline for submission of title and short description
26 May 2019: Deadline for submission of poster image (PDF) for those wishing to take part in the poster flash session
