2013 IEEE Region 8 Student Paper Contest

This year, EUROCON will host the oral finals of the official IEEE Region 8 Student Paper Contest.

IEEE Region 8 Student Paper Contest (SPC) is a traditional, and probably the oldest students activity in Region 8 – over 45 years old. It is an important student, but also academic and technical activity. IEEE Region 8 Student Paper Contest is for IEEE R8 student members or graduate student members who have not yet started their PhD. Only IEEE R8 student members can author the papers, without co-authorship of their professors-mentors or other associates.
The written papers sent by Student Branches to the Regional contest are graded by an international jury without knowledge of the identity of the authors and of their school. The best papers are presented at the Regional Oral Finals, published in conference proceedings and included in IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Three best finalists will receive prizes from the IEEE Life Member Fund.
