   PAPER SUBMISSION MUST BE RECEIVED BY 20 FEBRUARY 2011
Abstract Guidelines: Authors are invited to submit a one-page abstract of no less than 250 words in English. No
full-length paper is required. The abstract should explain clearly the content and relevance of the proposed technical
contribution. On a separate page list the following information: (1) Title of the paper, (2) Name, affiliation, and email
of each author, (3) Mailing address, (4) Telephone/Fax numbers, (5) Corresponding author and Presenting author, (6)
Topic or Session Organizer, if applicable, (7) State if poster presentation is preferred.
Please use On-Line-Submission (http://piers.org) to submit your contribution or via email (tpc@piers.org) by attach-
ments. Authors are recommended to use *.tex, *.doc, or *.pdf as the file format. The abstract submission deadline is
20 February 2011 and the author pre-registration deadline is 20 April 2011.
Full-length Papers: Author of an accepted abstract is invited to (but is not required to) submit a full-length paper of
4–5 pages. All full papers will be subject to a peer-review process. Only accepted and registered papers will be published
in the final PIERS Proceedings and available online after the conference. Selected full-length papers will be published
on PIERS Online. Please visit PIERS website for the latest PIERS sample files. The deadline for the submission of
extended papers is 20 April 2011.

   PRESENTING AUTHORS MUST PRE-REGISTER BY 20 APRIL 2011
Each presenting author is limited to presenting no more than three papers in oral and poster sessions, and must pre-
register by paying a non-refundable fee of US$460 before 20 April 2011. For students with valid identification, the
non-refundable pre-registration fee is US$230. Registration fee will be raised to $580 after 20 April 2011. Only
pre-registered articles will be scheduled in the final Technical Program. Inclusion of the article in the Technical Program
and PIERS Proceedings is guaranteed only after the registration of the presenting author is completed. Registration fee
include admission to all technical sessions, break areas, and a copy of the draft proceedings in CD-ROM.
       Updated and detail information will be posted at http://piers.org and http://emacademy.org
