Student Paper Contest

The purpose of the Student Paper Contest is to reward students for exceptional work, and take into account a group project atmosphere as well as individual projects. The RWW Student Paper Contest provides students with the opportunity to share their work and discuss their results with experts from industry and academia. It is open to all students attending the RWW and presenting a paper at one of the topical conferences (RWS, PAWR, WiSNet, SiRF, and SHaRC). Starting from 2017 the Steering Committee established a new format of the Student Paper Contest, which is now a single event for the whole RWW.

The following papers have been selected by the TPC and the Student Paper Contest Chairs as Finalists for the 2020 Student Paper Contest. Each Student Paper Finalist is required to prepare a short elevator pitch and a poster. The Student Paper Finalists' elevator pitches and the poster session will take place Monday evening. Please stay tuned for updates in the final program book. Judges from all topical conferences will select the first and second place winners among the Student Paper Finalists based on the quality of the final paper, the poster presentation, and the oral presentation. The winners will be announced at the Plenary Session on Tuesday. As novelty in 2020, the winning teams are invited to write a paper for the IEEE MTT-S Microwave Magazine.
