Additional Information

How to Contribute You are invited to contribute a presentation for this meeting in one of the following formats: Minisymposium A minisymposium consists of four 25-minute presentations, with an additional five minutes for discussion after each presentation. Prospective minisymposium organizers are asked to submit a proposal consisting of a title, a description (not exceeding 100 words), a list of 4 speakers (a minisymposium organizer may also be a speaker in the minisymposium, usually the first presenter to give an expository talk), and, titles of their presentations. It is recommended that the minisymposium organizer make the first talk as much of a tutorial as possible. Each minisymposium speaker should submit a 75-word abstract in LaTeX format. The URL for electronic submissions is Prospective minisymposium organizers should seriously consider the following recommendations when selecting speakers in a minisymposium. * Speakers should be selected primarily for their current contributions to the topic area. * Speakers should be as representative of researchers in the area as is practical. * Minisymposium organizers should select the first speaker based on one who can provide an overview of the topic area, put the whole area in perspective, particularly with regard to applications, and suggest new venues for continued research and application. A minisymposium organizer may speak in the minisymposium he or she is organizing. * SIAM discourages minisymposia in which most of the speakers come from the same organization or if all co-authors on the papers being presented in a minisymposium are from the same organization. The Organizing Committee will referee contributed minisymposia. The number of minisymposia may be limited to retain an acceptable level of parallelism in the meeting sessions. Proceedings For instructions on submitting papers for the Proceedings, follow these Instructions. Deadlines Deadline for submission of minisymposium proposals: 12/16/02 Deadline for submission of minisymposium speakers' abstracts: 1/13/03 Presentations in Lecture or Poster Format Contributions in lecture or poster format are invited in all areas of applied mathematics consistent with the meeting themes. Each contributor must submit a 75-word abstract in LaTeX format. Accepted papers will be assigned by the organizing committee to either a lecture presentation or a poster. Contributors should indicate which format they prefer. A lecture consists of a 12-minute presentation, with an additional 3 minutes for questions and answers. A poster presentation consists of the use of visual aids, such as 8.5" x 11" sheets for mounting on a 4' x 6' poster board and will be presented in a two-hour informal session that allows presenters to discuss their research with individual attendees. A poster board will be provided at the meeting for each poster presenter. The URL for electronic submissions is Deadline for submission of contributed abstracts for posters or lectures: 1/13/03 Electronic Submission Every presenter of a minisymposium, contributed lecture, or contributed poster presentation must submit a 75-word abstract in LaTex format. The 75-word abstracts will appear in the final program. The URL for electronic submissions is Notice of Acceptance or Rejection SIAM will send e-mail notices to all submitters as to whether their minisymposium proposals and contributed abstracts have been accepted by 2/10/03 Because of the possibility of space and time constraints, the Organizing Committee reserves the right to limit the number of presentations given by one individual. Please limit to one talk per person. This includes presentations in a minisymposium as well as contributed lecture-format sessions. Registration The meeting program and information on registration, hotel, and transportation will be available at this location in March 2003. Exhibits Publishers, software and hardware suppliers, and service organizations that have products to offer to meeting attendees are invited to exhibit. For further information and fees, please contact the SIAM Marketing Representative at Dates to Remember Deadline for submission of minisymposium proposals. 12/16/02 Deadline for submission of minisymposium speakers' abstracts. 1/13/03 Deadline for submission of contributed abstracts for lecture or poster presentations. 1/13/03 AUDIO/VISUAL NOTICE Standard AV Set-Up in Meeting Rooms Every plenary session room will have two overhead projectors, two screens, and a data projector. All other breakout rooms will have one overhead projector, one screen, and a data projector. Speakers may request audiovisual equipment, other than the standard equipment listed above, by contacting by June 10, 2003. Additional requests are subject to approval.

Activity Group on Linear Algebra The SIAM Activity Group on Linear Algebra promotes research in linear algebra and its applications. The group organizes regular conferences such as the SIAM Conference on Linear Algebra in Signals, Systems, and Control and the triennial SIAM Conference on Applied Linear Algebra. They also support smaller, less formal conferences as requested by the membership
