BEST STUDENT PAPER AWARD
All Student Travel Award applicants will automatically be considered for the Best Student Paper Award.
The same eligibility criteria and application instructions apply as for the Student Travel Award.
(If you are a student who fulfills the eligibility criteria and would like to be considered for the Best Student Paper Award
but NOT for the Student Travel Award, please fill out the STA application and check the appropriate box near the bottom of the application form.)
The Best Student Award finalists will be chosen based on the ranking of the
abstracts as well as the quality of the
students' presentations at IWCE.
The finalists will be announced during the conference closing ceremony on Friday, May 25, 2012. The finalists will receive a Student Travel Award,
a copy of the book "Computational Electronics," by Vasileska, Goodnick, and Klimeck, and a commemorative plaque.
