How to organize a Mini-symposium

The mini-symposia will be mainly organized by volunteers. The duration of mini-symposium talks is also 20 minutes. The length of mini-symposium talks and contributed talks will be the same.

To submit a mini-symposium proposal, the mini-symposium organizer should send an email to the organizers (see the contact section) with the following information:

  • Name of the organizer(s) along with his/her affiliation and email address.
  • Preliminary list of mini-symposium speakers.
  • Topics of the mini-symposium and a brief description of the intended presentations (titles and abstracts would be submitted later and new participants could be added later).

Note that the mini-symposium organizer may, but need not be, one of the speakers. The deadline for submission of mini-symposium proposals is May 1st, 2018. Mini-symposium proposals acceptance notification in one week after the submission.

If your proposal is accepted, speakers in your mini-symposium will have until June 17th to submit the abstracts of their talks.


A book of abstracts will be given to all attendees. We will not prepare Proceedings of the Conference, but all the participants are invited to submit manuscripts (not necessarily about the subject of their talks) to the Jaen Journal on Approximation (please visit the web page of the Journal through the left-hand side menu). We very much appreciate your eventual submissions and we offer you reduced fees.
