Minisymposium sessions are an ideal platform for promoting interdisciplinary communication. A minisymposium is a two-hour session of four 30-minute presentation slots (or three presentations and an open discussion) on a topic of significant interest to the given scientific domain, ideally having potential application in other domains. Organizers should ensure that their proposed speakers bring a range of different perspectives to the topic and come from multiple institutions and countries; organizers are required to comment on diversity and inclusivity in their proposals.
Although we welcome proposals in any of the eight PASC scientific domains, preference may be given to the following domains in order to provide for overall program balance:
- Chemistry and Materials
- Life Sciences
- Solid Earth Dynamics
- Emerging Application Domains (e.g. urban planning, mobility, disaster response, …)
For additional information, please refer to pasc21.pasc-conference.org/submission/guidelines-for-minisymposia/.
Expression of Interest (EOI) deadline: 22 November 2020; Full submission (if invited after EOI notification): 17 January 2021.
