Young Scholars Plenary Session (YSPS)
For the first time the programme will include a Young Scholars Plenary Session (YSPS), featuring outstanding research and engineering work by young scholars.
We encourage all eligible authors to apply. The Organising Committee will select up to 6 speakers from the submitted papers based on recommendations from the Scientific Committee. Details on eligibility and nomination can be found in the attached document.
Proposals for special sessions are welcome. Prospective conveners are invited to contact the Organizing Committee. Once a special session is approved, the conveners will be responsible for soliciting contributions and organising the session. Special sessions will be included scheduled in the conference programme as parallel sessions.
