Guidelines [We strongly suggest authors visit the PIERS
Guidelines before online submission.
PIERS Focus Sessions
Each focus session should be focused on a specific hot topic that must be
timely and reflect the future trends or the latest scientific advances in
the area. The leadership of the conference will select the topics of focus
sessions and the responsible organizers. The organizers may adjust the title
of the focus session to make it e.g. more specific/focused and should make
the best effort to ensure the high quality of the session by inviting high-profile
keynote speakers (30 min for each; 0-2 keynote
for each focus session) and excellent invited speakers (20
min for each), etc. Some contributed oral talks (15 min each) are encouraged,
however, quality must be very well controlled by the organizers with a typical
acceptance ratio of less than 50%. Each focus session will last for a half-day
(with a coffee break) or a full-day (with a lunch break and two coffee breaks).
Note that in some cases the conference leadership would invite/encourage
the leading scientist (or one of the few leading scientists) of a selected
topic to give a keynote talk and also serve as a co-organizer of the same
session to ensure the high quality of the focus session.

Best Student Papers will be awarded after their presentation in PIERS 2015
Prague. About 4-5 winners will be selected by a special committee. Each
