Student Paper Contest

The 61st IEEE International Midwest Symposium on Circuits and Systems will continue the tradition of holding a Student Paper Contest. Papers submitted for the Student Paper Contest must have the presenting student as the first author on the paper. The first author must be a registered student at the time of paper submission. Additional authors are allowed as long as the student presenter is the first author. Ten papers from those submitted will be selected for presentation by the student author at a special Student Paper Contest session held on Monday, August 6, 2018, 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM at MWSCAS 2018. First, second, and third place awards will be selected by a panel of judges.
