Types of Presentation

These Guidelines describe two types of presentation.

Contributed Presentation.
You submit a paper on your own which may be presented in a lecture (15 minutes including discussion) or poster format.
Mini-symposium Talk.
You should be invited to give a talk by the organiser of a mini-symposium. The organiser should provide you with the mini-symposium proposal reference number (MSP) which you should quote on your submission form.

If you want to find more about mini-symposia or consider organising one, please consult the separate Mini-symposia Guidelines

ICIAM 99 and the conference organising committee will not reimburse speakers for their expenses, including the conference fee.
