EuMW 2014 Student Challenge


Date: Tuesday 7th until Thursday 9th October 2014
Organiser: Maurizio Bozzi, University of Pavia, Italy

The Student Challenge has become a fine tradition at the European Microwave Week and is offered in 2014 for the seventh time. The
Student Challenge is an opportunity for bachelor, master, and doctoral students from all over the world with a variety of academic
backgrounds, to work together on a specific topic in the wide and challenging field of microwaves. The aim is to promote innovative
thinking, teamwork and pro-active behaviour, skills future employers will highly value. For the EuMW 2014 Student Challenge, several
teams shall be formed; each team has to be composed of a maximum of four members, preferably from different institutions and with a variety of backgrounds. The aim for all teams is to present, explain, and defend a fresh, visionary, application-oriented concept by a
poster. The poster must be based on at least two papers presented at the EuMW 2014, of which only one paper may be authored
by a member of the team. Eventually, each team will give a fiveminutes presentation of the innovative concepts they have devised.
A technical jury, composed of prominent members of academia and industry, will evaluate the presentation and the poster of each team according to the following criteria: originality, content, feasibility, and clarity. The winners will be announced during the EuMW/
EuMC Closing Session and the winning team will receive a prize with a value of €1500. All bachelor, master, and doctoral students
registered in any one of the EuMW 2014 conferences are eligible for participation in the Student Challenge.

To register, please send an e-mail to and attach a copy of your student identity card or a confirmation,
signed by your responsible professor. The deadline for registration is 30th September 2014.
