Student Paper Competition

A Student Paper Competition will be held during NEMO2019. A student participating in this contest should be the first author of the paper and must present it personally in the conference. The work will be evaluated taking into account both the presentation and reviewer comments/ranking. 

The winners of the Best Student Paper Award will be selected by an International Awards Panel and announced during the Conference Banquet. 

Top three winners will receive Huawei smart phone awards.
