Best Student Paper Award
IVEC 2018 will select the most outstanding, student-authored and presented paper for the honor of “Best Student Paper Award.” Criteria for eligible papers include 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. Following 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.  A winner will be selected from these brief summary talks.  The award will include an engraved plaque along with a $500 check.
