Call For 3 Minute Thesis


After the successful past editions, the Technical Program Committee of EUSIPCO 2018 is offering for the fourth 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!

Submission instruction:

  1. Create a video that best explains your work in a language appropriate to a general audience. The video should not be longer than 3 minutes.
  2. Upload your video to a site accessible by the evaluation committee. The video should be accessible for viewing and downloading. It is ok for the video to be hidden from search engines and accessible only with a private URL. However, it should not require a username/password to view. You can use, for example, DropBox, Google Drive, or your institution’s web server.
  3. Submit your entry via email at 3MT@eusipco2018.org. Make sure you include a Title, 1-page abstract/summary, Name, Affiliation and a link to the video location. Your one-page abstract will be included in the EUSIPCO 2018 proceedings.
  4. A shortlist of ten finalists will be selected by a jury composed by two members of the EURASIP BoD and the EUSIPCO 2018 Student Activity Chair.
