Guidelines for mini-symposia
Mini-symposia should comprise four presentations on a single topic of substantial current interest and importance in Mathematical Biology. Each talk will consist of 20-25 minutes, with additional 5-10 minutes for discussions. A major focus of ECMTB2022 will be on diversity and inclusivity. We invite minisymposium organizers to put together proposals that reflect the diversity of the mathematical biology community. For more information, please visit the SMB website on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
Mini-symposia are only accepted for in-person presentation, so please make sure that your invited speakers can travel to Heidelberg.
The Mini-symposium proposal should follow the template below and include the name(s) and affiliation(s) of the organizer(s), a short description of the mini-symposium topic and goal, and the name, affiliation and abstract of each of the suggested speakers. In addition, we invite you to shortly describe (100 words or less) how the proposed mini-symposium takes into account and supports the promotion of diversity, equity, and inclusion. The invited speakers do not upload their abstract, only the mini-symposium organizer(s) should, within the proposal.
Please use the template below to submit your proposal. For submission, one must create a user account on the registration platform and upload their proposal within the submission area. The registration as a conference participant must be done at a later time, after the decision date. Nevertheless, one must do this registration as a participant (to generate the invoice) themself; having your proposal accepted does not automatically register you for the conference.
Please make sure that your mini-symposium speakers agree to travel to Heidelberg to present in person and are not double-booked, i.e. they may present in only one mini-symposium. Also, if they are part of a mini-symposium, they are not allowed to submit a contributed talk or a poster.
Please save your file as “Minisymposium_NameSurname.tex” for submission, and follow the example for proposal.
