The Judging Criteria is "Excellence in Research".
4.0 Paper Presentation and Publication:
Accepted papers will be presented at this conference.
The authors of winning papers will be invited to a special
luncheon at the conference where they will be awarded a certificate.
These authors will be invited to submit these papers for publication
in the Canadian Journal of Electrical and Computer Engineering. If
the paper does not conform to the publication requirements of the
Journal, the authors will be required to edit their paper accordingly.
5.0 Expenses and Financial Support:
All participants in the student paper competition are required to
cover their own costs (for example; paper preparation, conference
registration, travel, accomodation, etc.). Research supervisors
often make prior arrangements with their students to cover some
or all of 'reasonable costs'. Grants may be available at your degree
granting institution. For IEEE student members, there are reduced
registration fees, and limited financial assistance may be
available from your local student branch, section, and other
IEEE Canada entities. Please view the Student Funding page
on this web site.
