To participate in the student project demonstrations on emerging technology award program, submit the online form | PENDING by July 15, 2024. If you have difficulty accessing this form, please email email@example.com with your name, school, and faculty advisor’s name & email.
Single student project teams will be given preference, but teams with up to three students are allowed. For teams with multiple students, only one student needs to fill the application form. Topics of interest include all emerging areas of power electronics and related technologies. A non-exhaustive list of topic areas of interest is given below. Project teams selected for participation will be notified by August 5, 2024. All members of the selected project teams must register for ECCE in order to participate in the demonstration event.
Travel grants of $400 will be allocated for some or all of participating project team (this amount may vary depending on the number of teams participating, as the total travel budget is $6,000). Team members must submit travel related receipts and the travel grant will be disbursed against actual expenses up to the team’s allocated amount. Team members and project advisors will be invited to a sponsored dinner during ECCE.
For the demonstration, each team will be provided (free of cost) roughly 5-feet by 10-feet space in the ECCE exhibition hall as well as one standing easel (board/poster not included). It is recommended that teams demonstrate hardware prototypes, and utilize posters, slides and/or videos (recorded at their home institution) to explain their demo to the audience and the judges. A power outlet will be available to each team to run a computer. However, the demonstrated hardware and experiments cannot be run in the exhibition hall due to safety concerns. Any participant who violates this rule will be disqualified.
Each project demonstration will be evaluated by a judging panel comprising members from the industry and the academia. The panel members will select the top project demonstrations based on originality/creativity, engineering design, value to practical applications, presentation, and audience appeal. The top three student project teams will be recognized with the Student Project Demonstration on Emerging Technology Award as follows:
- 1st Prize (a certificate and a cash award of $700)
- 2nd Prize (a certificate and a cash award of $500)
- 3rd Prize (a certificate and a cash award of $300)
The top student project team participating in the Student Design Methodology Competition track will be recognized with the:
- Best Student Design Methodology Award (a certificate and a cash award of $500)
Videos of the winning project demonstration may be posted on the IEEE PELS TC6 or TC10 websites.
