Extended Paper: PIERS Proceedings for IEEE Xplore

Author of an accepted abstract is invited to (but is not required to) submit an extended paper of 3 - 8 pages. Extended papers will be reviewed by the session organizers or the TPC members. Accepted extended papers will be published in the final PIERS Proceedings after the conference provided the author is registered and pay non-refundable registration fee. Since 2016, PIERS proceedings will be submitted for archival in IEEE Xplore.

The extended papers will first be submitted to IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society (GRSS) for quality review before submission to IEEE Xplore. The IEEE GRSS can reject the paper for not meeting the quality standards.

The IEEE-GRSS has the following policies on conference publications

1. No show papers will not be submitted to IEEE Xplore. They are treated as rejected papers

2. Papers submitted to IEEE Xplore need to have a minimum length of 2 pages.

3. Papers should have no more than 40% overlap with prior publications

All the extended papers will be finalized in the PIERS Proceedings after the actual conference, and thus some feedback from the physical conference presentation may affect the final decision. Please note that the publisher reserves the right to revoke the acceptance or retract the publication in some extreme circumstances when it may become apparent that a previously published or accepted work significantly misrepresented the quality, veracity, or relevance of the presented results.

The one-page abstracts will be included in a CD-ROM, instead of printed hard copies, which will be attached to the printed Technical PIERS Program onsite.
