How to participate: To participate the students will have to submit a 2-page summary (graphics are welcome in a classic ICIP paper format) of the main contributions of their PhD thesis along with a short CV and a support letter from their thesis supervisor. The submitted summary should be single authored by the applicant who must still be a PhD student at submission time. The submitted summaries will undergo a peer-review process and high-quality submissions will be shortlisted for onsite presentation during ICIP 2018 in front of a committee consisting of world-renowned experts from academia and industry. Presentations will follow a 3 Minutes Thesis (3MT®) contest format and students will have to present their thesis within three minutes using a single slide as an aide (see below about 3MT®). The final winner will be selected based on both the summary and the oral presentation.
Students are also encouraged to submit regular paper(s) in the main track of the conference and can provide paper submission numbers in their online application. The form also requires the submission of keywords that reflect the topic of the thesis.
Priority will be given to students at a more advanced stage of their PhD studies. Applicant must still be a PhD student in October 2018. See detailed rules of the competition below.
Three Minute Thesis (3MT®) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland (UQ) which challenges research higher degree students to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance in just three minutes in language appropriate to a non-specialist audience.
The 3MT ICIP competition will be performed according to the following basic rules:
