Contributed symposia

Symposia are groups of talks on a common theme. Each symposium consists of four to twelve papers. In EasyChair


please make a submission for each paper (b) as well as a submission for the symposium as a whole (a).

Please prepare all parts of the submission for anonymous review and indicate in which section you submit the symposium (tick the appropriate box). Please make sure that all contributors chose the same section. (a) For the symposium as a whole, please provide a general description of the format and the topic of the proposed symposium and its significance (up to 500 words), and suggest a symposium chair. After the abstract, please list the titles of the talks in the order they should appear at the conference. Please provide the symposium with an acronym, and write this acronym at the beginning of the title of the symposium (: ). The acronym will be used by the Programme Committee to keep the individual submissions in a proposal together during reviewing and when creating the conference programme. (b) Each paper within a symposium is submitted with a 500-word abstract. Please write the acronym of the symposium at the beginning of the title of the talk (: ). The acronym will be used by the Programme Committee to keep the individual submissions in a proposal together during reviewing and when creating the conference programme.

Although the exact format of symposia is up to the symposium organizers, the allocated time for each symposium paper is 30 minutes. For instance, a symposium with 4 speakers is a 2 hour session (4 x 30 minutes). Note that if a symposium consists of more than 4 speakers, it might be split into two sessions due to coffee breaks in the programme.

Rules for multiple presentations

(a) Every corresponding author is allowed to submit only one individual or symposium paper as a 'speaker'. (Organising a symposium does not count as being a 'speaker'.)

(b) Authors are permitted to be listed as non-corresponding co-authors of additional papers.

(c) The corresponding author of each paper as well as the organiser of a symposium must be registered as a participant at the Congress and present the paper in Prague.

All questions about submissions should be directed to the congress secretary, Mr. Martin Zach, at: [email protected].
