The IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society has a student paper contest for student members funded through the generous support of the Whitaker Foundation. Submissions are evaluated on merit, structure, clarity of composition and originality, and undergo the same review process as regular conference papers. Finalists must attend the conference and present their papers as either a platform or poster presentation and will receive free conference registration and limited travel support.



Prizes include US$300, US$200, US$100 cash awards, certificate, and complimentary conference registration, social function tickets, conference proceedings and limited travel reimbursement.
