Welcome to the second edition of the IEEE International Sensors and Measurement Systems Student Contest!
This international competition addresses teams of advanced undergraduates (particularly those in fast-track, dual BS/MS, Master programs), Master and Ph.D. students and aims to stimulate innovative ideas for applications in the area of sensors and measurement systems.
The IEEE International Contest of Sensors and Measurement Systems is jointly promoted and organized by IEEE Instrumentation and Measurement Society (IMS) and IEEE Sensors Council (SC) and is sponsored by STMicroelectronics that will provide the SensorTile® kit (www.st.com/sensortile) that will be the common technology platform of the contest.
Those willing to participate will have to submit a proposal, will have to develop their application at their University laboratories and attend one of the scheduled live demonstration sessions co-located with international conferences in the areas of sensors and instrumentation and measurement. For each demonstration event, two awards will be assigned (1st and 2nd place) for the best “Sensors and Measurement Systems” application.
The IEEE IS&M-SC participants will have to autonomously secure funding for travel and living expenses to attend the demo session. Students participating in the live demonstration session of the IEEE IS&M-SC will receive a free one-day pass for the conference while for those interested in attending the whole conference, student registration rate applies.
Technical proposal (maximum three pages) must include:
Participating teams will include a maximum of four members and must identify a faculty member at their University who will act as mentor and point of contact with respect to the organizing committee.
In addition to the three-pages of technical proposal, the submission package must include:
Submission package, one single pdf file including:
The submission package should be addressed to Ms. Brooke Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The organizing committee will evaluate the proposal submitted based on the following criteria:
Teams will be notified about the evaluation outcome shortly after the proposal submission deadline.
An ad-hoc commission will review the demos and will provide evaluation based on:
Only those demos that will successfully demonstrate at least a large part of the goals stated in the proposal will be eligible for the award.
Two IEEE Awards will be given to the two best Sensor and Measurement Systems applications at each one of the planned Demo Sessions.
