Best Student Paper Award

IEEE RFID-TA 2019 Best Student Paper Award – Poster Session


The IEEE RFID-TA 2019 Organizing Committee and Technical Program Committee congratulate the students who participate to the Best Student Paper Award Competition.

  • Poster Session: The Best Student Paper Award poster session will be held on Thursday, September 26 from 14:40-17:20, in the exhibition room (Level -1 of the conference venue). We recommend each candidate to be present during this time to interact with poster session attendees.
  • Poster Title, Content and authors list: the poster title must coincide with the related paper title, as the author list. The content of the poster must to be strictly related to the presented paper, but may present some updated contents too.
  • Poster Set Up and Removal: The stands for the poster will be available in Exhibition Room since on Thursday morning. Each author may setup the poster at any time she/he prefers. We suggest authors to leave their poster on the stand until the end of the conference to increase the visibility of their research activity. The panel is 1.5 m (4,92 ft) high and 1 m (3,28 ft) wide. There are no format or size requirements, but the poster must be clearly readable and not exceed the panel size. The panels are numbered from #1 to #11, thus authors are asked to place the poster according to the assigned numeration (see the candidate list in this page).
  • Judging: An expert vote will be tallied from a panel of judges that will examine each poster during the official poster session time. The Best Student Paper Award will be assigned based on this judgement. The poster session does not replace the oral presentation. Best Student Paper Award candidates must both attend the poster session and give the oral presentation.
  • Award Ceremony: the winner of the Best Student Paper Award will be announced during the social dinner at the restaurant “Principe di Piemonte”, on Thursday 26th evening.
