COMSOL Conference 2012 Call For Papers
Fanny Littmarck February 7, 2012
We have now officially opened our doors to receive abstracts for paper and poster submissions for this year’s COMSOL Conference. This means that if you are interested in presenting your work in either Boston, Milan, or Bangalore now is the time to submit your abstract.
Abstract Approval Process
So what happens after you submit your abstract? –Our scientific program committee reviews all abstracts and gives their approval notices by August 10th for Boston, August 17th for Milan, and September 9th for Bangalore presenters, respectively. In Boston, my colleague Jinlan Huang has so far inducted over 20 people from some well-established organizations to be on our program committee, including The Boeing Company, NASA Glenn Research Center, Duke University, Ford, to name a few. (Stay tuned to find out who’s on our committees in Milan and Bangalore).
As I mentioned, you can submit an abstract for either a poster or a paper. The way these two media are presented differs. For example, if you want to do an oral presentation on a paper, these presentations are held as parallel sessions divided into topic areas open to all conference attendees. Posters on the other hand are typically displayed in a larger area of the venue, such as the main ballroom at the Boston location, to allow attendees to browse all posters at once.
Did you know that if you present a poster or a paper at one of our conferences you will also get the chance to publish your work on the ever-popular Conference CD? Getting your work on the CD means reaching the eyes of 100,000+ people around the world. Imagine that. (If you want to view papers and posters from last year, you can get a copy of the Conference CD for free here.)
Those who decide to submit an abstract by the Early Bird submission date receive a reduced conference registration fee. ($195 in Boston and €195 in Milan).
