Call for special session proposals

Proposals to organize a special session at the MCA 2013 are welcomed by the Steering Committee. A proposal should include

  • the names, affiliations and contact information of all the organizers
  • a brief presentation of the topic and scope (up to one page)
  • a preliminary list of the expected speakers


The topics should be broad and fairly well represented throughout the Americas. The list of organizers must include at least two mathematicians from different countries in the Americas. Preference will be give to proposals whose list of suggested speakers represents diversity in all aspects. Each special session will consist of two 4-hour periods. We recommend that the organizers base their session on a total of 16 half hour time slots for their speakers.

Proposals for Special Sessions are welcome on all mathematical topics. In particular, we encourage proposals that are connected with the International Initiative in 2013 on the Mathematics of Planet Earth.


Proposals should be sent before July 31, 2012 to
