Best Student Paper Award
IVEC 2016 will select the most outstanding, student-authored and presented paper for the honor of “Best Student Paper Award”. Eligible papers are those with a student as the principal author and presenter. Students are considered as individuals pursuing a baccalaureate or graduate degree at the time of the conference or during the past year when the work was completed. After ranking by the Technical Program Committee, six student papers will be selected for finalist consideration. Finalist students will present a 10 minute synopsis talk on their work on Tuesday evening during the conference, and from these brief summary talks a winner will be selected. The award will include an engraved plaque and a $500 check. To be considered for the award, students should choose “yes” to the question “do you want this abstract to be considered for the best student paper” as part of the online abstract submittal process.
