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:

  • The student must be the first author, must have written the paper, and must have done the substantial majority of the work
  • The paper contains a mature, significant contribution
  • The submission consists of a clear, polished manuscript of no more than 6 pages
  • The student must present the work in person at the conference to a panel of judges, if chosen as a finalist.  The presentation will be in the same format as the lecture session presentations.

Submission process:

  • (New) Fill out the submission form, convert to PDF, and append to the end of your paper.  The submission form does not count toward the 6-page limit for the manuscript.
  • When submitting your paper, select “yes” for the Student Paper Contest on the web form.

Judging and Awards:

Papers submitted to the competition will be reviewed for technical merit by the AESS Radar Systems Panel Student Paper Competition Committee.  Paper review will be on the initial submissions, so students should turn in a polished version of their paper in the initial submission.

A set of five final candidates will be invited to present their work in person at the conference to a panel of judges from industry and academia. The top three students will receive a cash award and recognition during the banquet awards ceremony on Wednesday, April 29, 2020.
