Student Challenge Rules


Eligible students are invited to take part in the Student Challenge during EuMW 2017, which is organised by Thomas Ußmüller and Michael Höft ( 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.

Each team is composed of a maximum of four members, preferably from different institutions and with a variety of backgrounds. All teams will 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 2017, of which only one paper may be authored by a member of the team. Eventually, each team will give a three-minutes presentation of the innovative concepts they have devised. Hurry up, register promptly, the number of participants is limited!

Evaluation Criteria

  • Novelty of the idea
  • Relevance of the solution/vision proposed
  • Feasibility of the idea
  • Clarity of the poster
  • Clarity of the oral presentation and discussion
