The scientific program of PMAA20 consists of plenary speakers, participant-organized minisyposia, and contributed presentations.
A minisymposium consists of four (or eight) talks with a common technical theme. Minisymposium organizers are responsible for securing the participation of their speakers and collecting and forwarding initial speaker and talk title information, upon which minisymposium selection will be based. Once minisymposia are approved, speakers will be able to use a web-based automated submission procedure as other presenters to enter their finalized titles, abstracts, author and affiliation data, and speaker designation data (in the case of multiply-authored papers).
Please see these instructions for more details on minisymposium proposal submissions.
A contributed talk is a 25-minute presentation, which will be grouped by the organizers with other contributed talks into the two-hour parallel sessions each morning and afternoon of the conference.
Presenters are asked to submit their titles, abstract (600 words or less), author and affiliation data, and speaker designation data (in the case of multiply-authored papers) using the abstract submission procedure.
The deadline for fullest consideration is March 30, 2020. Submitters will be notified of acceptance no later than April 20, 2018. If an earlier notification is required for visa purposes for participants from countries with restricted access to Belgium, please e-mail your submission to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible, and special attention will be given.
A minisymposium consists of four (25+5)-minute presentations, meaning a talk of 25 minutes with an additional five minutes for discussion after each presentation.
Prospective minisymposium organizers should submit a short proposal for the minisymposium by email to email@example.com (Deadline for minisymposium proposal: April 8, 2020), and each accepted minisymposium speaker should submit a 600-word abstract (in a text file) through the abstract submission web page (Deadline for abstract submission April 20, 2020).
These will be reviewed by the scientific committee. The number of minisymposia may be limited to retain an acceptable level of parallelism in the conference sessions.
Minisymposia proposals should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 8, 2020 to receive fullest consideration. Selections will be announced within two days after this deadline.
Proposals consist of:
Proposals should be in uncompressed plaintext, pdf, or doc format. Minisymposia are allowed two or four hours each. This means four or eight (25+5)-minute talks.
