Submission of Mini-Symposium Proposals

Mini-symposia will consist of up to 3 sessions. Each session will consist of 4 talks. You may propose between 1 session (up to 4 talks), 2 sessions (up to 8 talks), up to a maximum of 3 sessions (up to 12 talks). We recommend selecting 1 or 2 sessions. Note that a single participant may give at most 2 talks in 2 different mini-symposia.

Please use 'Mini-symposium proposal submission (name of main contact organizer)' as the subject line and fill in the following six curly brackets in the body of the email.

Standard LaTeX commands (but no custom macros) must be used in these fields.

Before submitting your proposal, we encourage you to contact the potential speakers on your list and obtain (if possible) tentative confirmations as well as date preferences/constraints from them. We understand that many speakers cannot make final decisions before the exact block schedule of the minisymposium is available. However, it is important to have an estimate on the number of confirmed speakers and obtain the date preferences or constraints from the speakers before we schedule the minisymposium.

Please submit your proposal to before the deadline: August 25, 2023.

If you are interested in presenting a talk but do not have an invitation for a Mini-Symposium, please find a mini-symposium that aligns with your topic and contact the relevant organizers to inquire about available slots. Alternately, email the information using the standard format to

Mentoring Program

We will host a mentoring event during one of the breaks on Saturday. During this event a mentor (senior researcher) will meet with a Protégé (undergraduate or graduate student) and will answer career related questions. We will match the mentors and protégé based on multiple factors, e.g., research area, career stage, and general interests. The deadline to apply to the mentoring program is 11:59 PM CST, October 6, 2023. We will contact each matched mentor and protégé two weeks prior to the event in order for each to be able to learn about the others' research interests, stage of academic career, and what they wish to discuss with their mentors.

Application for the mentor program (either as mentor or protégé ).
