The 5th International Congress on Mathematical Software will consist
of several topical sessions. Each session will provide
an overview of the challenges, achievements and progress in a subfield
of mathematical software research, development and use.
The program committee will consist of the session organizers.
We solicit session proposals.
You are invited to propose a session if you
 are active in mathematical software research, development and use,
 want to serve the research community
by nurturing and facilitating mathematical software work in your area, and
 would like to focus only on the scientific matters in the organization
(not on other matters such as administrative, logistic, etc).
How to propose a session
 Prepare a session proposal with the following contents.
 title of the session
 name(s) of the organizer(s), with contact addresses and emails
 aim and scope of the session (at most 150 words)
 Submit it
 The decision on the proposal will be made
 by the program chair, the general chair and the advisory committee
 within midJanuary 2016
How to organize a session
 Maintain a session web page (see template in htmlformat or
txtformat).
 Send a call for abstracts to the potential speakers in the topic area of the session
(see template in texformat
or in
pdfformat).
 Review the submitted abstracts and make decision on their acceptance,
as soon as each one arrives.
 Complete the process by Apr 15, 2016.
 During the meeting, chair the session.
Format of a session
 A session will consist of one or more time slots.
 A time slot will consist of about 3  4 talks.
 We encourage that each session begins with one general overview talk
(may be given by a session organizer).
This format is meant only as a rough frame; the organization of a
session can be done in a quite free fashion (e.g., concerning the
duration of the individual contributions). "Talks" may also include
software presentations and demos.
Possible topics for sessions
 These are not exclusive. You can propose any mathematical topic.
 These are not required titles of sessions. You can propose any title.
 These are provided as initial hint for topics and titles.
