Student Paper Competition

The Student Paper Competition identifies and recognizes outstanding research in the field of ultrasonics conducted by students. The award consists of a certificate and monetary prize.

The Student Paper Competition posters will remain on display for the duration of the symposium. Up to six awards may be given upon recommendation of the selection committee. Awards will be given to deserving papers, and the committee is not obliged to give any award. The winners will be honored during the symposium’s banquet.

This year finalists for the IEEE IUS 2016 Student Paper Competition award are:
