Submit symposia

Each symposium will consist of four 15-minute presentations, followed by a 30-minute discussion. Symposia themes should be of interest to the broad membership of the Society.  Although proposals will be considered primarily on scientific merit, the conference organising committee will take into consideration the gender diversity of the proposed speakers (in line with our Society Gender and Equity Policy). Further, for the most part, speakers in each symposium should come from different institutions.

If you would like to submit a symposium application, please fill in the form below. Note that one of the four speakers may be the chairperson, although this is not required. Please follow the general abstract guidelines for each speaker. If you have any questions, contact Stefan Bode.

The deadline for submission is midnight on Friday 20th July 2018 (last timezone on earth).

Submission implies that all speakers and the chairperson have committed to attending the conference. Registration for all chairs and speakers will be required upon acceptance of the symposium. There is no Society funding available for symposia.

After submission, you should receive email confirmation that we have received your proposal. If you don’t receive that confirmation, we haven’t received your proposal (remember to check your junk mail folder).
