Student Paper Competition

The purpose of the Student Paper Competition is to recognize outstanding technical contributions from individual students. Papers considered for an award should meet the following criteria: (i) the student must be the first author, must have written the paper, and must have done the majority of the work (ii) the paper contains a mature, significant contribution (iii) the submission consists of a clear, polished manuscript of no more than 6 pages When submitting papers for oral or poster presentations, students are encouraged to self-identify their work for consideration in the student paper competition (i.e., click the appropriate button on the web form). Initial review will be on the initial submissions, so students should turn in a polished version of their paper in the initial submission. All student papers have been judged for technical merit by the AESS Radar Systems Panel Student Paper Competition Committee and a set of final candidates have been invited to present their work in person at the conference to a panel of judges from industry and academia. The top three papers will receive a cash award, and recognition during the banquet awards ceremony on Wednesday, April 24th.
