SIAM IMR24: Research Notes

The SIAM International Meshing Roundtable Workshop 2024 solicits research notes. Authors may submit either a single paragraph abstract or a short paper (at most 4 pages). Accepted submissions will be presented as a talk at the conference.

Research Notes are checked by the committee before acceptance to ensure they are appropriate for the conference. They should describe new ideas, exploratory research, preliminary results, or updates to previously published research in the field of meshing. They are not peer reviewed and do not have to be anonymous.


Each research note will be given 10 minutes for presentation followed by 5 minutes for Q&A. The SIAM IMR committee will award a prize for the best presentation of a research note. Notes will appear on the IMR website after the conference.

There is no limit to the number of papers and research notes an author can submit. However, at least one of the authors must register for the IMR and present. Each registrant may give at most one presentation (paper or research note). All authors and presenters are encouraged to also submit posters and meshing contest entries.

Formatting Requirements

Research notes are at least a paragraph and at most 4 pages including figures, tables, and appendices, but excluding references. Authors are welcome to submit supplementary material to the actual research note, however the paper must be complete without it. Acceptable supplementary material includes:

  • Lengthy or detailed experimental results, beyond summaries in the research note itself
  • Code or pseudocode
  • Datasets: publicly sharing input models that others can try their algorithms on is especially welcome
  • Images
  • Animations
  • Proofs

Authors are encouraged to make the supplementary material publicly available after acceptance.

Formatting should follow the SIAM two-column template.
