Student Paper Competition Duplicate.

Student Paper Competition


The Student Paper Competition event is sponsored by IBM Research

The easiest way to the tutorial venue is to travel to the ‘Islands Brygge’ Metro Station on the Vestamager metro line. When you come up to street level, find the traffic lights and turn right on Njalsgade. Turn right after a wooden fence, about 100 meter, and then left. You are now in front of the building and there will be Medinfo2013 signage to help you. Enter into the hall and follow the circular white staircase to the first or second floor.

We are looking forward to seeing you.

When: Tuesday August 20, 8.30-12.15am

Where: University of Copenhagen, Njalsgade 80-90, 2300 København S – only two stops by Metro from the Medinfo congress Venue. The pre-congress tutorials are also taking place at this venue. For a more detailed description on transportation, please refer to the Tutorials. 

Award ceremony: The outcome of the Student Paper Competition will be announced at the Opening Session on Tuesday, August 20, 4pm.

Prizes: All Student Paper Finalists will receive a free conference registration in the amount of the early bird student registration rate and coverage of one additional hotel night.

The first, second, and third place winners will receive an award in the amount of US$ 500, $300, and $200.
