Mini-STS submssion deadline is March 1, 2018.

What is a Mini-STS?

Mini Special Topic Sessions (Mini-STS) are informal lunch-table meetings with like-minded attendees to carry out discussions without a pre-planned agenda. They are a great way to meet other members of the community and to gather people together who have similar interests or people you have been working remotely with on a project.


  • Collaborate! If there are similar topics scheduled, contact the Mini-STS owner to see if you can combine your topics. Alternately, if your Mini-STS gets too large, it’s okay to splinter!
  • Does your Mini-STS complement an existing plenary or Technical Topic Session? Talk to the session owner about plugging your Mini-STS at their session if yours comes later.
  • Have fun and learn! The Mini-STS’ exist to provide attendees with an inclusive, informal environment in which to share ideas freely.
