Call for Symposia - Deadline Has Passed

The call for symposia will open in late Winter. Please check back for updates.

Please note: Once the symposium is accepted, each speaker will be required to submit an abstract following the procedure for regular abstracts (due June 15, 2016). We will accept symposium proposals that include unfilled presentation slots. These slots will be filled with relevant presentations from the pool of regular submissions. The Program Committee will consult with the symposium organizer to identify appropriate talks. Note in your submission if you are willing to accept presentations from the pool of regular submissions.
