The Scientific Programme of the 63rd WSC is being developed with the diverse interests of the ISI members and the international community in mind. The Programme will include Invited Paper Sessions (IPS) and Contributed Paper/Poster Sessions (CPS). There will no longer be Special Topic Sessions (STS) at the WSC.
There will also be Short Courses and Satellite Meetings organised by the ISI Associations and Committees.
The IPSs are developed by the Scientific Programme Committee (SPC) of the ISI and its Associations. IPSs usually consist of 3-4 presenters and a discussant invited by the organiser of the session.
The SPC will review the proposals and select the IPSs to be included in the 63rd ISI WSC with due consideration to the diversity of topics, the regional distribution of organisers, scientific quality and impacts.
