Three minutes Thesis (3MT) Contest
The IEEE International Workshop on Machine Learning for Signal Processing 2022 is organizing a 3 Minutes Thesis (3MT) Contest. This year, the competition will be virtual and open to all students in a research-based masters or doctoral program worldwide.
If you want to take the challenge and participate to the competition, submit a 3-minute video describing your thesis and research topic to a video platform (YouTube, etc.) or to a site accessible only by the evaluation committee with a private URL. The judging criteria for this phase are presentation skills (40%), scientific quality (40%) and originality (20%) of the topic presented.
The top 5-10 submissions will be selected and invited to the final round of the competition, which will be online to an audience and adjudicating panel during the MLSP conference.
The top 3 presentations as judged by the panel will be awarded to be announced soon and a certificate from conference.
For the initial phase, please submit your entry via email email@example.com no later than Jul. 18st, 2022. Make sure you include a Title, 1-page abstract/summary, Name, Affiliation and a link to the video location.
