Student paper competition

This is the 1st year of the student paper competition (will start with the 2013 FENDT New Technology&Application Forum in Jinan, China). The awards consist of a certificate, and are a prestigious addition to the student's CV. Students who are submitting abstracts for presentation are also invited to participate in this Student Paper Competition (see "Qualifications for Competition" below for conditions).

Abstracts submitted by students for the Student Paper Competition will be reviewed as usual by the Technical Program Committee (TPC). At that time the TPC will select 7~21 finalists for the Student Paper Competition (roughly in proportion to the number of student abstracts submitted in the forum). The finalists will be notified and asked to produce a poster of their papers to be displayed during a special student poster session. The poster is required independent of whether the student's paper has been selected as an oral presentation. The students should check the guidelines for poster presentation for the preparations of their posters. As of now, on the first day of the forum, June 17, 2013, 09:30 a.m. to 04:30 p.m. (i.e. 9:30 - 16:30), all Student Finalist Posters will be presented in a special section for judging by a panel of judges representing the paper's technical group. The posters will remain on display for the duration of the forum (June 17, 2013 to June 20, 2013).

7~21 awards (First Prize: 1~3 students; Second Prize: 2~6 students; Third Prize: 3~12 students) will be given and the winners will be honored during the banquet on June 20, 2013.
