This is the 21st year of the student paper competition which was initiated at the 2001 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The award consists of a certificate and represents a prestigious recognition of the student’s achievement. Students who are submitting abstracts for presentation are also invited to participate in this Student Paper Competition (see “Requirements” below for conditions).
Abstracts submitted by students for the Student Paper Competition will be reviewed as usual by the Technical Program Committee (TPC). At that time the TPC will select 18 finalists (6 from Group I, and 3 from each of Groups II to V) for the Student Paper Competition (roughly in proportion to the number of student abstracts submitted in each group). Finalists will be notified and given instructions regarding the competition. At the time of registration, the finalist is required to be a registered member of IEEE and UFFC.
All Student Finalist presentations will be presented in a special section for judging by a panel of judges representing the paper’s technical group. Presenters will have five minutes to present, and five minutes to answer questions. Six awards will be given.
