Young Professionals Luncheon
From 31 May, 2017 13:30 until 31 May, 2017 14:30
Under the umbrella of IEEE Young Professionals program, the Robotics & Automation Society (RAS) is further empowering its young professionals through the RAS Young Professionals (YP) group. This year’s event brings together representatives from the IEEE RAS Publication Activities Board and RAS Young Professionals to enjoy a meal and open discussions on important topics relating to the publications in our society, such as:
- What are the obstacles that delay the Submission to feedback-to-Authors procedure?
- What is required to extend a workshop/conference publication to a journal article.
- Open access vs traditional publications
- Why robotics journal impact factors are lower than the human science (or similar) fields?
We expect short presentations from EiCs and Editors of RAS Journals, followed by questions from the YP community.
Confirmed RAS Publication Leadership:
Eugenio Guglielmelli (Vice-President – Publication Activities)
Kyu Jin Cho (Associate Vice-President - Publication Activities)
Frank Park (IEEE Transactions on Robotics Editor-in-Chief)
