The next symposium RGD32 will be held in Seoul, South Korea in 2020.
Full Paper Submission
All the oral and poster presentations in the RGD31 are invited to submit full papers. Please follow the Full Paper Submission tab below.
The reviewed and accepted papers will be published in AIP Conference Proceedings. As the author-prepared PDFs will appear in the proceeding, please use the AIP template, which you can find here: https://aip.scitation.org/apc/authors/preppapers.
The AIP template also provides detailed information about how to prepare the manuscript. The organisation committee will not respond to the questions regarding paper preparation.
The deadline of submission is now extended to 15 October 2018.
According to the RGD's tradition, the recommended paper length is 8 pages. If necessary for quality improvement, the length of the paper can be expanded to 12 pages. If you need to exceed the 12-page limit, please contact the editor (Yonghao Zhang, email@example.com). All the submissions will go through a rigorous review process.
Memorial Session for Prof Bird
We are deeply saddened to hear that Professor Graeme A. Bird passed away on Saturday 26 May. Professor Bird will be greatly missed by the RGD community.
