The Best Student Oral Presentation Award is presented by the IEEE Magnetics Society to recognize and encourage excellence in graduate studies of magnetism.
Full-time PhD graduate students who will be the presenting authors of an accepted oral contribution may apply. Preference will be given to students who are within one year of graduation and who are, and whose advisors are, current members of the IEEE Magnetics Society.
Students should apply at the same time as submitting their digests by providing the supplemental information requested in the digest submission process. The supplemental information required includes:
(1) Expected graduation date, IEEE member number, advisor name, advisor IEEE member number;
(2) One-page description of the motivation for the research, the significance of the research results, and the applicant's contribution to the work being presented;
(3) Signed letter of support from the student's advisor. This letter must include the advisor’s signature.
The deadline for student award applications is January 8, 2024. Incomplete applications will not be considered.
Up to five finalists will be selected by the Award Committee based on accepted digests and the supplementary information. The selection process will be overseen by the Chairman of the IEEE Magnetics Society Education Committee and the Chairman of the IEEE Magnetics Society Honors and Awards Committee.
Only the finalists will receive notification of the selection outcome.
The winners will be selected by the Best Student Oral Presentation Award Committee and announced during the Conference. The award consists of a prize of $1000 USD and a certificate for the winners, and a $250 USD prize and certificate for each of the remaining finalists.
