Students (undergraduate, postgraduate or doctoral) are invited to submit, through the Conference Management System (CMS), an up to 5-minute video clip in MP4 format that presents their design idea, including statements and elaboration of the objective, method, innovation and outcome.
All video clip submissions accepted for the Student Design Competition will be presented during the conference. Three awards will be presented. Each awardee will receive a plaque and a certificate. The GOLD student design awardee will also receive the prize of $1000 USD, the SILVER $500 USD and the BRONZE $250 USD. The awards will be conferred during the opening plenary session of the conference.
