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.
Young Scientist Programs
To encourage more young scientists and students to contribute to PIERS with presentations of good research results, the two young scientist programs are organized at PIERS 2019 in Rome.
Best Student Paper Award (BSPA)
To encourage more students to present their good research results in PIERS, Best Student Papers will be awarded after their presentations in each PIERS. Three Prize Winners (First, Second, and Third Prizes) and 1-2 Honorable Mentions will be selected for each category (SC1 to SC5) by the PIERS Young Scientist Program Committee. Each winner will receive a cash award and a banquet ticket to attend the Award Ceremony.
A silver plaque for the Best Student Paper of the SC4 Category, Antennas and Microwave Technologies, will be also awarded during the Conference from GAAS Association.
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 paper of 5-10 pages is required for the evaluation of the technical quality. The full paper should be submitted by the full paper submission deadline and registered by the pre-registration deadline. The final score is 50%*(paper review score) + 50%*(presentation score).

Young Scientist Award (YSA)
The Young Scientist Award (YSA) provides a more general young scientist program in comparison with the BSPA. To qualify applications for the YSA, the applicant must have PhD degree in science/engineering and under 40 years of age by the conference date. The applicant must be listed as the first author as well as the presenting author of a paper submitted for oral presentation. A curriculum vitae with publication list must be submitted together with the abstract. A full paper of 5-10 pages should be submitted by the full paper submission deadline and registered by the pre-registration deadline. Awardees will be selected after peer-review of the applications by the PIERS Young Scientist Program Committee.
