A minisymposium is a two-hour session on a topic of current importance in computational science that showcases research related to domain science, applied mathematics, computer science and software engineering, and is an ideal platform for promoting interdisciplinary communication.

Forty-eight minisymposia have been accepted for PASC18. Typically, the format of a minisymposium is four 30-minute presentations, although in some cases the final 30-minute slot may consist of a panel discussion or open discussion forum.
