Authors must be students. Each student author must be an IEEE student member at the time of the submission of the paper to the Contest, and a member (student or not) of IEEE at the time of the conference. The paper should be fully the work of the student or students and completed before they have received the engineering or scientific degree that entitles them to start preparing a doctoral thesis. Published papers, doctoral thesis or work for a doctoral thesis will not be considered. 



Papers should cover technical and engineering aspects on a subject reasonably within or related to the IEEE fields of interest and the scope of the GHTC conference. The work need not be original in content, but should be original in treatment and concise in coverage of the author’s contribution to the subject. Papers should be a maximum of 6 pages including figures, using a minimum 10-point font and should include proper citation of the referenced works of others.



The deadline for receipt of full papers is June 20, 2013. Submit papers online with author name(s) and Universities/Colleges removed through the IEEE GHTC Review Room. Papers submitted after the deadline will not be accepted.

Please register and upload your paper by the deadline. If you have any questions about the contest or submitting through Review Room, please email Rob Vice (, the Student Paper Contest Chair.
