Submit Abstract

All speakers must submit an abstract using the  LaTeX template below. Once we receive your abstract, we will review it to make sure it is thematically appropriate for the meeting. If it fits with the conference themes, it will be processed into the list of Submitted abstracts (this may take a couple of days).  If it does not fit, we will notify you. Important Note: To be included in the program, you must submit an abstract, register, and pay your registration fees by April 15, 2020. A preliminary program will be posted on May 3.

To submit an abstract:

  • Copy the template listed below into a file named LastnameFirstname.tex. Use only letters in the name. Do not use any spaces, dots, dashes,  underscores, or diacritical marks.
  • Fill in the requested information including the body of your abstract. You can then LaTeX it to check that it looks OK.
  • Send the resulting file as an email attachment to approximation.theory@gmail.com. Write “Abstract Submission YourLastname” in the subject line. Do not send the PDF file.  If you want to revise your abstract, send a new LaTeX file with the same file name.
