Role of cluster chairs at ICCOPT 2019

ICCOPT 2019 is hosted by the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS) Berlin. It will include a Summer School (August 3-4) and a Conference (August 5-8) with a series of plenary and semi-plenary talks, organized and contributed sessions, and poster sessions. The scientific contributions of the conference are organized within thematic clusters.

As a cluster chair, you are responsible for the following tasks:

Invite researchers to organize and submit sessions (minisymposia) or talks.

Each session consists of 3-6 talks, and will be scheduled in groups of 3 talks. Minisymposia with more than 6 talks can be suggested by submitting more than one session.

The expected number of sessions depends on the cluster, and is included in our Email (subject "ICCOPT2019 Instruction for Cluster Chairs"). Cluster chairs can also submit their own sessions. In order to submit a session to ICCOPT 2019, organizers need to create their own account, and submit title and abstract of a session, names and email addresses of speakers, and preliminary titles of the talks in the session.

Approve/reject sessions and talks submitted to your cluster.
Researchers are also allowed to submit contributed sessions or talks to your cluster at ICCOPT 2019. Talks or posters should generally not be rejected on the basis of content unless their subject matter lies outside the scope of continuous optimization or unless the results are clearly wrong. In case the scope lies outside the area of the cluster, but might fit some other topic area of ICCOPT, then please contact the organizer via email to .

Technical instructions

All scientific contributions are managed in the conference management system Converia.

  1. Create your account.
  2. We will authorize you as a "reviewer" in Converia within one week after you registered.
  3. Submissions to your cluster will pop up in "Reviewing" - "Review assigned abstracts".
  4. During the reviewing process, you will be asked to accept or decline the session (including all talks in the session), talk, or poster. You can additionally suggest to move a contribution to a cluster that fits better, and leave messages to the conference organizers and the authors of the contribution.
