Mentoring Program

Following the success of the previous years, Discovery Science 2011 is featuring a mentoring program once again. Students who are first authors of papers are invited to submit a paper draft, no later than the mentoring deadline. They will receive comments from a PC member that will help them prepare their final submission. Final paper submission should follow regular paper procedure, with abstract and full paper submission.
