As a part of IEEE Student Branches Region 8, IEEE Student Branch Klagenfurt cordially invites you to participate in the region wide IEEE student paper contest of 2014.  SPC is a paper contest for IEEE student or graduate student members who have not yet started their PhD, but have most likely already encountered some research topics or done Bachelor’s or Master’s thesis.

This year, we will have two rounds of evaluation. In the first round, all the paper submitted to IEEE student branch Klagenfurt will be reviewed locally by a team of professionals, professors and postdocs. There could be as many submissions as possible. Then, as per the decision of the first round,  the finalist will be invited and financially supported to present his/her paper at IEEE R8 EUROCON 2015 Conference, September 2015, Salamanca, Spain. The top three contesters within Klagenfurt will get acknowledgement prizes at IEEE Christmas Party at the end of this year.

General Information

IEEE Region 8 Student Paper Contest is for IEEE R8 student members or graduate student members who have not yet started their PhD. Professors-mentors and other associates cannot be SPC authors (but their names could be acknowledged in the FINAL versions of the papers). Each student author must be a member of an IEEE Student Branch at the time of the original submission of the paper to the Branch Contest, and a member (student or not) of the IEEE at the time of the R8 Oral Finals presentation. The work presented has to be completed before the student receives the engineering degree that entitles her/him to start preparing a doctoral thesis. The submission of the paper to the Region 8 SPC must be completed within 12 months after graduation. A doctoral thesis is not considered. Published work is excluded from the Contest.
