Last Call for JSM 2020 Topic-Contributed Session Proposals

JSM 2020 topic-contributed session proposals are due December 10.

Topic-contributed sessions include papers (five total speakers with 20 minutes each, with at least three presenters and no more than two discussants), panels (3–6 panelists providing commentary about a topic), or posters (10–15 participants with posters addressing a common topic).

A topic-contributed session proposal includes a session title, general description of the session, list of participants, and tentative talk titles.
