10th Jožef Stefan International Postgraduate
School Students' Conference
May 10th - May 11th, 2018
Piran, Slovenia

Call for papers

Students are invited to present their work in a form of abstract, poster and oral presentation written and presented in English. Short abstracts will be published in proceeding.

The abstract emphasis is on the application point of view of your research. Take a look at the paper guidelines below for detailed information.

Note that a submission consists of a manuscript only, so you have time to prepare the poster untill the conference.

Who is the conference for?

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


For the initial submission, you need only submit the extended abstract part of your presentation. You then have time until the conference to prepare a poster presenting your work. In preparing both your abstract and poster, please follow some guidelines outlined below.

NOTE: This year, you are expected to bring your posters (already printed) to the conference! We will not be printing the posters.
