3 Minute Thesis (3MT) Contest at EUSIPCO 2017
After the successful 2015 and 2016 editions, the Technical Program Committee of EUSIPCO 2017 is offering for the third consecutive year a 3 Minutes Thesis (3MT) contest, where PhD students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance. This activity is sponsored by EURASIP. It is an exercise for students to consolidate their ideas so they can present them concisely to an audience specialized in different areas. Together with scientific and technical quality, EURASIP wants to promote transversal skills of PhD researchers such as oral and presentation skills, and it also wants to help PhDs to gain visibility of their work.

To PhD students: If you are devoting or have devoted 3 or more years to your PhD, you could devote 3 minutes to explain it to a more general public, we challenge you!

Important Dates:
Video Submission Deadline: June 5, 2017
Acceptance notification: June 15, 2017

EUSIPCO is the flagship conference of the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP). The 25th edition will be held in Kos, Greece, from August 28 till September 2, 2017. EUSIPCO 2017 will feature world-class speakers, oral and poster sessions, keynotes, exhibitions, demonstrations and tutorials and is expected to attract in the order of 600 leading researchers and industry figures from all over the world.

Submission instructions for the 3MT contest are available here.
