Paper Requirement:

The IEEE administers an Institute-wide undergraduate Student Paper Competition. In Canada, the arrangements, rules, and policies governing the competition come from the Regional SAC Chair. Each January, an extensive package of information is sent out to each Student Branch. However, the main details are repeated here for your convenience.

The purpose of the IEEE Student Paper Competition is to offer student members the opportunity to exercise and improve both written and verbal communication skills. As we move towards a global community, effective communication skills are becoming increasingly important. Whether you go into graduate studies, research and design engineering, sales, or management, you will be required to write reports and give presentations. Skills that you develop and use now will give you an edge when you enter the working world.

Only papers from undergraduate student members are eligible to be entered into the competition. Nonmembers may enter only if a completed membership application (including full payment of dues) is received (in Piscataway) at the time of entry. All other entries must be rejected. It is not fair to members in good standing if non-members enter and promise to join if they win. The Branch Chair and Branch Counselor must ensure that only valid entries are accepted.

Papers entered should cover technical, engineering, management, or societal aspects of subjects reasonably within or related to areas with which the IEEE is concerned. The paper can be one written for a course project or work term report, and can be coauthored by up to 4 students. It is not necessary to write a special paper for the competition. However, it is expected that some work will be put in to ensure that paper meets the necessary guidelines.

The Competition is a two-tiered event. Papers are first submitted to your Student Branch Counselor. The winning paper from your local competition is then entered into the Regional Competition. To encourage participation, IEEE Canada offers three prizes in each of the Councils within the Region (Western, Central, and Eastern):

    * Award TBD for best overall paper
    * Award TBD for best paper by University student(s)
    * Award TBD for best paper by College student(s)

In addition, the winners from the Regional Competition may be invited to present their paper at an IEEE sponsored conference. In addition to the prize money, IEEE Canada may provide some additional funding to attend the conference. However, it should be noted that this funding is limited, and may not be available every year. Furthermore, Life Member Award winners will have their papers summary published by the IEEE on the IEEE Student Paper Contest Hall of Fame website.

The deadlines for the local competition will vary from school to school. Your Branch Counselor will inform you of the key dates to keep in mind. Remember, the Regional deadline is June 1 of each year, so you should expect the deadline for your local competition to be around March or April.

A copy of the paper preparation guidelines and the pre-registration and registration forms are provided as a 4-page pdf file. Although it is not necessary to submit a pre-registration form, it will help your SAC Chair to select appropriate judges for the Regional Competition. A portion of the funding for prize money is generously provided by the IEEE Life Member’s Committee.

This year's regional presentations and award ceremony will take place here at Algonquin.  For details, please review the information package.
