Student Best Paper Awards
We are pleased to announce the following Student Best Paper awards for SAS-2007. The Technical Program Committee made these recommendations based on the paper reviews, quality of presentations, and the requirement that the student be the first-author and presenter:
1st Prize: $1,000: Graham Wild, Edith Cowan University, "Fibre Bragg Grating Sensors for Acoustic Emission and Transmission Detection Applied to Robotic NDE in Structural Health Monitoring"
2nd Prize: $500: Sanaz Adl, University of Maryland at College Park, "Low noise pre-amplifier/amplifier chain for high capacitance sensors"
Two 3rd Prizes: $250 (each):
Seung Hyuck Shin, Seoul National University, "Adaptive Step Length Estimation Algorithm Using Low-Cost MEMS Inertial Sensors"
Alaeddin Abu-Abed, University of Alabama in Huntsville, "Capacitive Transduction in Partially Disordered Systems: Application to LC-Based Biosensors"
In addition to cash prizes, the student awardees are provided with a 1-year free student-membership in IEEE and will be designated as IEEE I&M Student Ambassadors.
Congratulations to all the winners and thank you for your participation in SAS-2007!
