The minisymposium submission for PASC22 is a two-stage process. The first stage is anexpression of interest, which includes a description of the proposed minisymposium (abstract) and suggestions for possible speakers who are experts in their field(s). The expressions of interest will be reviewed by the Minisymposia and Posters Program Committee. A selection of expressions of interest will be invited to submit a full proposal.
The review process will consider the relevance and timeliness of the proposal topic, as well as overall program balance.
The second stage, the full proposal, should include an extended abstract along with the names of possible speakers and presentation 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 themself. If desired, the fourth 30-minute slot could be a panel discussion or open discussion forum. Please note that until final decisions are made, submissions should be considered as proposals, and no guarantees should be made by organizers to speakers named on their proposals.
The organizer of a minisymposium takes an “active chair” role in their session – that is, they should present a brief overview of the themes of the minisymposium and the state of the art, introduce the speakers and their topics, and facilitate a lively and interactive discussion amongst the speakers and audience throughout the session.
