Student Paper Competition
The purpose of the Student Paper Competition is to recognize 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, 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
- If chosen as a finalist, the student must register for the conference and present the work during the conference to a panel of judges. The presentation will be in the same format as the lecture session presentations. At this time, we don’t know if there will be an in-person or virtual conference. In either case, students will be required to give their presentations “live” to the panel of judges, but will be allowed to do this either in-person or remotely. Note that this policy applies only to the Student Paper Competition. 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.
