Region 9 Biennial Outstanding Student Paper Award

Region 9 Outstanding Student Paper Award Committee


Description: Awarded to promote, recognize, and support meritorious research achievement on the part of Region 9 (Latin America and the Caribbean) students, and their advisors, through the public recognition of their published work, within the Electron Devices Society’s field of interest.

Prize: A distinction will be conferred in the form of an Award certificate bestowed upon the most outstanding Student Paper nominated for the two-year period. The prize will be presented at either the Latin American Electron Devices Conference (LAEDC) or the Symposium on Microelectronics Technology and Devices (SBMicro).   In addition to the recognition certificate, the recipient will receive a subsidy of up to $1,500 to attend the conference, where the award is to be presented. There will be a formal announcement of the winner in a future issue of the EDS Newsletter.  The winner will also receive up to three years of complimentary IEEE and EDS student membership, as long as winner remains eligible for student membership.

Eligibility: Nominee must be enrolled at a higher education institution located in Region 9. In the case of a co-authored paper, only eligible co-authors may be nominated. Papers should be written in English on an electron devices related topic. Papers should have been published, in full-feature form, during 2022-2023 in an internationally recognized IEEE sponsored journal or conference in the field of electron devices related topics. Statements by the student and by the faculty advisor should accompany the nomination. Nominator must be an IEEE EDS member. Previous winners of this award are ineligible.  There must be a minimum of five nominations submitted in order for the award to be administered for that year.

Basis for Judging: Demonstration of Nominee’s significant ability to perform outstanding research and report its results in the field of electron devices. Papers will be judged on: technical content merit, originality, structure, clarity of composition, writing skills, overall presentation. These criteria will be weighted by the assessment of the nominee’s personal contribution and the linkage of the nominated work to the nominee’s career plans.
