Track D2 - Space Science
This paper compares both linear and non-linear regression modeling techniques in approximating total electron content (TEC). Both techniques have been applied on a similar dataset and verified on an independent but identical dataset to assess the performance of the developed models

Track A - Condensed Matter Physics and Material Science
With freakishly mobile electrons that can blaze through the material at nearly the speed of light, 100 times faster than electrons can move through silicon, and its amazing mechanical properties, graphene became the rise of future mecha and optoelectronic. The main goal of this work is to confine Graphene nanosheets in polymeric 1-D systems.

Track D1 - Astrophysics
We present a novel method to study the relationship between gas content of galaxies, their star formation activity and the phase structure of the ISM. We do this by summing all individual profiles in the data cubes of the THINGS samples.
