Join the audience for a live webinar at 12 p.m. GMT on 7 December 2023 exploring the value of conference proceedings for the scientific community
What is the value of conference proceedings for the scientific community? Drawing from the expertise of our panel of researchers, this webinar discusses why authors and editors choose to publish proceedings, the overall value of conference publications to the scientific record and the processes involved in conference organization and publication.
Chair: Rachelle Morris is a commissioning editor at IOP Publishing. Prior to joining, Rachelle collaborated with international trade and commercial publishers, photographers, and authors to produce books using natural history images for nearly 17 years. Since joining IOP Publishing, that focus has shifted to expanding the portfolios of the conference series journals: Earth and Environmental Science (EES) and Journal of Physics (JPCS) and maintaining the high standards of IOP Publishing’s publications.
Hans-Thomas Elze is a theoretical physicist who has been affiliated with the University of Pisa since 2004. Hans-Thomas’ field of research includes: quantum-classical hybrid systems, quantum decoherence, QCD transport theory, quark-gluon plasma, statistical mechanics. He is the organizer of the biannual DICE (foundations of physics) conference that has been hosted in Italy since 2002.
Martin Land is a senior lecturer at Hadassah College Jerusalem and a faculty mentor at The Open University of Israel. Natively from New York, Martin has a background in electrical engineering and physics, teaching courses in computer architecture, microprocessors, networking, and embedded systems. He currently serves as president of the International Association for Relativistic Dynamics (IARD).
Romeo Susan-Resiga is a university professor at the Politehnica University Timișoara (UPT), Romania. He teaches courses in fluid mechanics and hydraulic machines. He is also the director of the Research Centre for Engineering of Systems with Complex Fluids in UPT. He is currently on the committee of Hydraulic Machinery and Systems at the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), and he organized the IAHR Symposium on Hydraulic Machinery and Systems in 2010, as well as the meetings of the Workgroup on Cavitation and Dynamic Problems in Hydraulic Machinery and Systems in 2007 and 2023.
Lars Pilgaard Mikkelsen is an associate professor in the Department of Wind and Energy Systems at Technical University of Denmark. His field of interest is numerical finite elements simulations and experimental characterization of polymer matrix composites, where the focus is on the fatigue and compression behaviour of wind turbine blade materials. He is organizer of some of the Risø International Symposium on Materials Science. A symposium, which has run for more than 40 years with 60–100 participants every year.
