College of Engineering / ICPS6 / Program


Program

ICPS6 will be organized with morning plenary keynote sessions followed by parallel technical sessions for two and a half days. To facilitate the IAPS mission of international colleague development, receptions will be held on Sunday and Monday evenings, and a conference dinner will be held on the Tuesday evening.

All papers will be peer reviewed. Selected papers will also be  invited for publication in special issues of the International Journal of Protective Structures. Papers with the main author who is 35 years old or younger will be considered for the Best Young Researcher’s Paper Award based on both the quality of the paper and presentation.

All presentations and proceedings papers must be approved for public release.  However, at the authors’ request, ICPS and the Defense Technical Information Center can help facilitate publishing of select controlled, unclassified papers submitted by U.S. researchers for publication in the Journal of DoD Research and  Engineering (JDR&E).
