Call for participation
The 4th VKII-Best Student award is an international contest for undergraduate and graduate Cameroonian students worldwide. It offers them an opportunity to compete for an award, as they examine innovative topics in engineering and computer science in order to solve everyday problems.
1. Highlighting and rewarding very high quality work from students in engineering, computer sciences and related fields
Each contribution should not exceed six pages using a 10pt font coding (pdf documents are preferred but not a must).
The contribution should describe either a conceptual work aimed at solving a given problem in engineering or computer science or a practical implementation solving a novel problem. In the second case, sufficient proof (pictures, video or demonstration) must be provided at time of submission. While opening the competition to all fields of engineering, however a particular focus will be set on topics in connection with renewable energies.
Only Bachelor and Master Degree students presenting their bachelor or master dissertation in computer science, computer engineering, energy engineering, electrical engineering and all related fields may submit their work. For the recent graduates: all submitted work must have been initiated and the bulk of the work must have been performed at university between the 1sth of July 2008 and the 1sth of August 2009.
The following criteria will be evaluated: presentation, logic, structure & clarity of the argumentation, the pertinence of the conclusion and the utility of the work for the future of less developed African countries. The impact of each criteria on the final note will be published on the BSA 09 website later.
The awards will be handed out at the Gala taking place after the workshop. The winner will also receive a free registration to the VKII-Workshop.
The winners will be asked to present a summary of their work during the workshop. They will have 15 min time for the exercise broken down by 10 min for the presentation and 5 min for Q&A.
