Awards and GrantsThe four RT2012 Outstanding Student Paper Awards will honor the best student submissions accepted for an oral or a poster presentation.
To be eligible, you the student/author must do these things:
- Upload the Conference Record paper at least ONE WEEK before the conference starts.
- Stop by the editor booth at the first day of the conference and present evidence of your status as a graduate (master's or doctoral) student.
- Present the work in an oral or poster session at the conference. Only work that is actually presented by the student-author will be eligible.
The first two awards are $500 US and an IEEE certificate. The third- and fourth-place awards are IEEE certificates.
Tips for Award-Worthy PapersYour Conference Record paper should specifically include these items:
- An introduction that describes the research field and goal of the paper.
- Discussion of the scientific basis and state of the art (e.g., signal processing involved, mathematics related to the paper, scientific support for the chosen material and method, etc.).
- A Materials and Methods section that describes the work and how it was done.
- A section that presents all results.
- A discussion section that explains results and shows the originality of the work, compared to previous efforts or to projects from other researchers.
- Conclusions, briefly summarizing the points that others should remember from your paper.
- References that show understanding of your field and proper acknowledgement of the work of others, and which point the reader toward useful further information. Some rules of thumb are that a paper of this length should have at least 10 references, and that fewer than 1/3 of the references should be from your (or your team's) previous works.
