There are two types of submission.

Special sessions/minisymposia:

We invite proposals for minisymposia also called special sessions. These consist of 3 or 4 high quality talks on a closely related theme. The speakers should represent at least two different institutions and preferably more. If you have more than 4 speakers in mind, please split the session into multiple sessions with one organizer each.
The first talk in each session should include some introductory material to provide motivation and background to the audience.
The organizer of a minisymposium should send a proposal to, which should include the names and affiliations of the speakers and describe the session’s topic, due by the date in the web page above. There is a separate, later deadline for the abstracts in a minisymposium.

We also invite individuals to propose talks. Individuals’ talks will be grouped into sessions by topic.

In the program there will be no differentiation between contributed and special sessions’ talks.
