Young Scientist Award 2021

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-length paper of 5-10 pages should be submitted by the full-length 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.


The YSA full papers are to be reviewed only by the judges. After the conference, authors can choose to publish or not to publish their papers in PIERS Proceedings on IEEE Xplore.
