A MATHMOD Minisymposium is devoted to a specific topic within the scope of the conference. Such a minisymposium should consist of 5 – 15 papers, preferably not more than 50% coming from the organiser’s working group. Choice of authors and papers for possible inclusion in the minisymposium is up to the minisymposium organiser. If a minisymposium consists of more than 5 accepted papers the presentations will take place during two or more special sessions with 4 – 6 papers each. Please note that contributions may be (a) Full Contributions or (b) Discussion Contributions. The decision on the type is up to the author and the minisymposium organiser. Please note that the contributions within one minisymposium need not be of the same type, but they must follow the same rules as all other submitted papers, i.e.:
- If an author wants the paper to be published in the IFAC-PapersOnLine proceedings series https://www.journals.elsevier.com/ifac-papersonline/ then a full paper must be submitted online for peer review as Full Contribution, at latest by Sept. 17, 2017 and the authors must indicate the corresponding minisymposium. The peer-review process will be organised by a member of the IPC different from the minisymposium organiser. All further rules and deadlines are the same as for regularly submitted Full Contributions.
- If an author wants to present a Discussion Contribution without publication in the IFAC-PapersOnLine proceedings series then online submission of a Review Abstract (2 pages) is needed at latest by Nov. 5, 2017 and the author must indicate the corresponding minisymposium. The abstract will be reviewed by members of the IPC. If accepted, a 2-page-abstract will be published in the Preprints. All further rules and deadlines are the same as for regularly submitted Discussion Contributions.
Contributors to minisymposia are treated the same as every other participant of the conference. Hence, they are expected to stick to the copyright regulations and to pay the same conference fees (as specified on our web site).
