A minisymposium is a two-hour session of four presentations (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. Minisymposia are an ideal platform for promoting interdisciplinary communication. Speakers should bring a range of different perspectives to the topic and come from multiple institutions and countries. The PASC Conference encourages gender balance and diversity. Proposals that address aspects emphasizing the theme of PASC23: “Computing Across Scales, Domains, and Communities” are particularly welcome.
The minisymposium submission for PASC23 is a two-stage process:
- An expression of interest, where only a description of the proposed minisymposium (abstract) and a list of potential speakers with relevant expertise are required.
- The expressions of interest will be evaluated, and a subset of them will be invited to submit a fully-fledged proposal.
Guidelines for minisymposia and conference participation terms are available here.
The review process will consider the relevance and timeliness of the proposed topic, as well as overall program balance. Submitted contributions will be reviewed by the conference minisymposia and posters program committee.
