Call for papers

Students are invited to present their work in a form of abstract, poster and oral presentation written and presented in English. Abstracts will be published in the IPSSC 2024 book of abstracts. The abstract emphasis is on the application point of view of your research. Take a look at the guidelines below for detailed information. Note that a submission consists of an abstract only, so you have time to prepare the poster until the conference.

Who is the conference for?

The conference is intended for all students of science, technology, engineering and other related fields. Both students of the Jožef Stefan Postgraduate school (IPS/MPŠ), and students from other institutions can submit their work. You do not need to be enrolled in a study programme at IPS/MPŠ to participate and are kindly invited to participate with a presentation of your research work. The conference is an excellent opportunity for you to see what is happening in different research fields and to meet other participants from your field of work, including students from IPS and Jožef Stefan Institute. Don't hesitate and send us your contribution!

Abstract guidelines

On the following links you will find: the abstract template and the guidelines. Please carefully review the guidelines, if you have any questions concerning the preparation of your abstract please contact us via e-mail: ipssc@mps.si

Remember to save the document in the .docx file format in the following way:
NANO/ECO/ST/ICT_BSc/MSc/PhD_SurnameName
for example: NANO_PhD_NovakJanez.docx

Guidelines for presentation

Use the following template for the presentation and submit the ppt file by 22nd May via ipssc@mps.si.

Each presentation will have a five-minute limit and the minimum length of presentation required is three minutes. There will be 1 additional minute after the presentation for a short question from the audience. In the first break after your session, you will need to be available for a discussion regarding your presentation/work along with your poster. The posters will be on display all three days. The story you will give during your presentation must follow the theme of the conference, which is: Two Decades of Discovery: Advancing Science and Solutions.

Poster guidelines

The poster must be A1 portrait orientation (594 x 841 mm). Note, that it is your responsibility to print your own poster and bring it to the conference site on time.

Please also note, that while the poster is not necessary for the participation in the student conference (you can attend only with an oral presentation) if you want to be eligible for the awards you must have both an oral presentation and a poster.

Awards

We are also proud to announce that awards for best contributions will be given at the conference. All participants who submit an abstract, give a presentation, and present a poster will automatically participate in the competition for the best submission awards. Participants not fulfilling all three requirements will not be eligible for the awards. The IPS Scientific committee will evaluate abstracts, presentations and posters to determine the winners. Our generous sponsors will provide this year's awards and help you develop or improve skills beneficial to your research and life.

About Piran

Welcome to Piran, a charming town nestled on the southwestern coast of Slovenia. Its narrow streets wind through colourful old houses, creating an enchanting atmosphere that captivates visitors. Piran’s medieval architecture is a testament to its past, with the Old Town characterised by Venetian Gothic influences. Stroll through its labyrinthine alleys, discover hidden squares, and admire the compact houses that have witnessed centuries of maritime history. Our conference venue, the Marine Biology Station Piran, perched at the tip of a narrow peninsula, overlooks the Gulf of Piran and the Adriatic Sea. With a long working tradition, the station fosters scientific curiosity and innovation. Surrounded by the soothing sound of waves, it offers an environment free from distractions, encouraging participants to explore the wonders of science. We look forward to hosting you in this picturesque coastal town! 🌊🏰🔬.

FAQ


Q: Do I need to submit an abstract to join the conference?
A: Although we strongly encourage each participant to submit an abstract and prepare a presentation, it is not mandatory. You will of course not get published in the proceedings and will not be eligible for any award. If you want to join the conference only as a participant, please email us: ipssc@mps.si.

Q: Can I just submit an abstract and not prepare a presentation?
A: Technically you can, but it will not be published in the proceedings, and you are not eligible for any of the awards.

Q: Will my abstract be published if I prepare a presentation but no poster?
A: Yes.

Q: What do I have to do to be eligible for the awards.
A: You have to follow these steps: register and submit the abstract before the deadline, prepare and submit your PowerPoint presentation as per the provided instructions, attend the conference to deliver a 5-minute pitch of your work (refer to the pitch guidelines) and bring your poster for display during the conference. The posters will be on display for all three days. The poster sessions will provide an opportunity to address additional inquiries regarding your work.

Q: Will you print my poster?
A: No, you have to print the poster yourself and bring it to the venue. Please note that it may take longer to print the posters, because of a larger number of participants. There will not be an option to print the poster on-site.
