Dear Mach Conference community,
We have decided to offer the 2021 Mach Conference on April 7-9, 2021, in a fully virtual format. We are focusing our planning efforts toward designing an experience that is inexpensive, interactive, collaborative, and maintains many of the best features of our past MachConferences. In this spirit, we intend to:
While we continue our planning toward these goals, we would like to begin soliciting proposals for conference mini-symposia. As a reminder, the conference is largely comprised of symposia that are organized around specific topics of interest, each of which contain one or more sessions.
If you are interested in organizing a symposium session at Mach 2021, please send a proposal to firstname.lastname@example.org that includes:
Please recognize that symposium organizers will be encouraged to build discussion periods into the end of each session of their symposium to encourage interaction. We will work with organizers of accepted symposia to ensure a productive and useful experience for their speakers and attendees.
The extended deadline for this call is November 30, 2020.
Note: this is a call for symposia topics and organizers, the call for individual abstracts will be later in the fall.
