--- PIERS 2017 in Singapore, on 19-22 November, 2017
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 speakers 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 Paper Award
To encourage more students to present their good research results in PIERS,
Best Student Papers will be awarded after their presentation in each PIERS.
About 4-5 winners will be selected by a special committee. Each winner will
receive 500 USD cash award and a banquet ticket to attend the Award Ceremony.
Besides a winner (500 USD cash award), each subcommittee will also have
1-2 runner-ups for honorable mention. Each of them will receive a banquet
ticket to attend the Award Ceremony.
A student competing for best student paper award must be listed as the first
author as well as the presenting author of a paper submitted for oral presentation.
A full-length paper is required for the evaluation of the technical quality.
The full-length paper should be submitted by the full-length paper submission
deadline and registered by the pre-registration deadline. The final score
is 50%*(paper review score)+50%*(presentation score).
