The ICICTE Graduate Student Paper Award, ICICTE 2018 is for research contribution by students submitting their papers to the conference. Up to five finalists will be invited to present their research at the Graduate Student Award Symposium of the conference. All final papers will be published in the conference proceedings.


Submission Procedures:

All student submissions that will indicate they are intended for the contest will be considered for entry in the the ICICTE Student Paper Award. Students must be the first author and be the on-site presenter of the paper.


Graduate Student Papers will be double-blind peer evaluated by members of the adjudicating committee.


Authors of accepted proposals will be required to submit the first draft of their paper along with a letter from their graduate advisor stating why they believe their student’s paper should be considered for the award (Deadline: March 23, 2018). Up to five students will be invited to present their research in the Graduate Student Award Symposium.


Only one student may be the first author, and the student's supervisor may appear on the paper as the second author. No cooperation research projects are eligible for the contest.


The student finalists papers will be published as submitted as completed manuscripts. Those papers submitted for the contest that will not be finalists and that are subsequently invited to participate in the conference plenary sessions, will receive comments by the referees in the same way as all other papers excluding finalist papers.


The winner of the Graduate Student Paper Award will receive an award and a certificate from the conference. All finalists who are present during the closing ceremonies will receive a citation. In addition, all papers will automatically be considered for the ICICTE 2018 selected papers issues of contributing journals.
