Papers should be written for a broad engineering and science audience. Papers submitted to CERS should be less technical in language as compared to those submitted to scientific journals. Papers submitted to CERS must be original, non-peer reviewed works that have not been submitted previously to journals. Up to three papers can be submitted, but only one may be considered for a prize. A paper must be at least 4 pages long in order to qualify for award consideration, and it must be no longer than 6 pages (references are not included in the 6-page limit). Papers must conform to the IEEE paper format. The information presented must conform to disclosure requirements as stated on the faculty information page.
Art In Science
Submission Deadline: Tuesday, March 19, 2019
Visualization methods provide an important tool in engineering for the analysis and presentation of scientific work. Images can often convey information in a way that tables of data or equations cannot match. As a special feature of the CERS 2019, we are continuing the “Art in Science” competition. The competition is open to engineering graduate and undergraduate students of the Pennsylvania State University.
- Submissions are limited to one image per contestant.
- Images may be obtained by any material imaging technique. They can also be the result of modeling and simulation, visualization of data, or can be obtained by combining multiple images into one artistic image. Because the focus is on art, images may be edited or enhanced to express creativity and visual impact but must maintain scientific integrity.
- Judging: the session chairs and judges will independently determine the winners. Each entry is eligible for only one prize.
- Image format guideline:
- All images are to be submitted online as a high-resolution .pdf file of at least 300 dpi (10 MB maximum sizes) on or before 11:59 p.m. (EST), March 19. Please include the submitter’s full name in the title of the .pdf file.
- All submitted images must include a short description of the technique used, the object that was imaged and any special conditions. In addition, the submitter’s name, major, degree and e-mail address must be given.
- All images will be submitted electronically. No photographic hard copy prints will be accepted.
Rights: By participating, winners agree to allow the College of Engineering to post their names online as a competition winner without further compensation. Except where prohibited, by accepting awards the winners agree to the public use of their names, email addresses and images for advertising or publicity purposes without further compensation.
