Student Paper Award

The three ANIMMA2015 Outstanding Student Paper Awards will honor the best student submissions accepted for an oral or a poster presentation.

To be eligible, you the student/author must do these things:

  1. Follow the emailed instructions he/she will receive to submit Conference Record paper correctly.
  2. Submit the Conference full paper by 6th April.
  3. Present the work in an oral or poster session at the conference. Only work where the student is the first author will be eligible.


  • Upload the Conference full paper by 6th April
  • Send email to animma@ipfn.tecnico.ulisboa.pt with the paper number and include a pdf evidence of the status as a graduate (master's or doctoral) student.
  • Present the work in an oral or poster session at the conference.
  • The student shall be the first author of the presented paper.
  • The award is based on the scientific content and the quality of the text (quality of English, clarity of the text, quality of figures, etc).
  • Oral and poster presentations have equal chances of winning. The award is for the paper, not the presentation.


Each awarded student will receive a tablet (TBC).

Tips for Award-Worthy Papers

Your Conference Record paper should specifically include these items:

  • An introduction that describes the research field and goal of the paper.
  • Discussion of the scientific basis and state of the art (e.g., signal processing involved, mathematics related to the paper, scientific support for the chosen material and method, etc.).
  • A Materials and Methods section that describes the work and how it was done.
  • A section that presents all results.
  • A discussion section that explains results and shows the originality of the work, compared to previous efforts or to projects from other researchers.
  • Conclusions, briefly summarizing the points that others should remember from your paper.
  • References that show understanding of your field and proper acknowledgement of the work of others, and which point the reader toward useful further information. Some rules of thumb are that a paper of this length should have at least 10 references, and that fewer than 1/3 of the references should be from your (or your team's) previous works.
