Student Paper Competition
The purpose of the Student Paper Competition is to recognise outstanding technical contributions from individual students. Papers considered for an award should meet the following criteria:
- The student must be the first author, must have written the paper while being a student, and must have done the substantial majority of the work.
- The paper contains a mature, significant contribution.
- The submission consists of a clear, polished manuscript of no more than 6 pages.
- The manuscript conforms to the IEEE template and instructions given on the paper submissions page.
- If chosen as a finalist, the student must register for the conference and present the work to a panel of judges during the conference. The presentation will be in the same format as the lecture session presentations. Each paper will also have to meet the registration and presentation requirements of the regular conference sessions according to the policy determined by the conference committee.
- Papers submitted to the competition will be reviewed for technical merit by the Conference Student Paper Competition Committee. Paper review will be on the initial submissions, so students should turn in a polished version of their paper in the initial submission.
- A set of five final candidates will be invited to present their work at a special session organised during the conference. The panel of judges will be a mixture from industry and academia.
- The top three students will receive a cash award and recognition during the Awards ceremony. The first place winner will also receive a commemorative plaque.
- For any additional questions related to the Student Paper Competition, please contact the student paper chair.
