A major component of the scientific program of ECMI 2021 will be shaped by parallel minisymposia. A minisymposium is organized by an active member of our research community on his/her own initiative on a specific conference theme. The standard format of a minisymposium is: A session consisting of 4 talks, each 20 minutes long (followed by 5 minutes for discussion). Of course, a minisymposium can include several sessions. In exceptional cases we can consider sessions of 5 talks.
