2) Joint SIAM/CAIMS Annual Meeting 2020 Updates

Dear colleagues,

We may not be able to meet in Toronto for this year’s Joint SIAM/CAIMS Annual Meeting (AN20), but that doesn’t mean we can’t hold the meeting! SIAM and CAIMS are pivoting to virtual with a lineup of invited plenary and prize talks, minisymposia, digital posters, industry events, and more. Virtual AN20 will be happening July 6-17 and registration is free; please review the program and register now.

Please register by Wednesday, July 1 at 11:59 p.m. ET to guarantee you’ll have access to the platform by the first day of the conference.)

Minisymposium organizers are welcome to hold their sessions exactly as they would have in person. Speakers unable to attend the live event will be able to provide pre-recorded talks in advance. All sessions will be recorded and available on-demand to conference attendees through the virtual conference platform.
