Call for Papers
The 2013 IEEE Student Conference on Senior Capstone Project
“Modern Engineering Technology for Sustainable Development”
We are pleased to announce that the 2013 IEEE Student Conference on Senior Capstone Project (IEEE SCAP) (formerly the IEEE Thailand Senior Project Contest) will take place on March 29, 2013 at the Faculty of Engineering, Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok, Thailand (CU). Organizing Committee for the Conference is now calling for papers to be presented at the 3rd IEEE SCAP. Undergraduate students from Engineering and related disciplines are invited to attend and present papers related to their senior capstone project or undergraduate research based on the conference theme: “Modern Engineering Technology for Sustainable Development” The theme will be further subdivided into 3 focal areas: Climate Change and Sustainability Development, Improving the Quality of life and Emerging Health Risks and Aging Society.
Our goal is to highlight the importance of research and senior capstone project on the Modern Engineering Technology which combines domain of engineering, technology and applied science, and focuses on solving technical problems and its application for sus
e conference will comprise of:

Participants can write papers on other areas in addition to those listed above in accordance with the conference theme. Participants will present their research or capstone projects in the areas specified in the conference. Judges will review the posters and speak to participants about their research; a group of semi-finalists will be chosen to present at the oral session.
Semi-finalists continue by giving a 10 minutes short presentation of their research or capstone project before a panel of judges, with a supporting power point presentation. Evaluations are based on the presenter’s knowledge of his/her research/project area, contribution of the research/project, and the quality of the oral and visual presentation. Three winners will be chosen in each category, receiving 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes respectively
IEEE Guest Lectures
Guest professors and speakers will be invited to share their thoughts and experiences relevant to the conference theme.
The official language of the conference is English. Abstracts, paper presentations and all conference materials will be in English. Approximately 100 undergraduate papers will be selected to present posters, and nine projects will be selected to present at the oral session. The program committee will review papers on the “first-come, first-served” basis. The program committee has the right not to review incoming papers should the quota be met.
1. Each session is arranged as follows;
- Poster Session duration: 90 minutes
- Poster Session format: presentation of individual projects followed by discussion and Q & A.
- Presentation duration: not exceeding 10 minutes for each paper.
2. The program committee will select accepted papers and will arrange the sessions accordingly.
3. The poster sessions will be arranged according to focal areas. This will enable participants from different disciplines to share ideas and to have a deeper understanding of the conference theme.
Acceptance of Abstracts:
1. Abstracts and any accompanying poster should be submitted in English using email:
2. Each abstract should contain a description of the research/project not exceeding 250 words, and should include the title, author’s name, institutional affiliation, nationality, discipline and at least 1 but not more than 5 keywords. The keywords are designed to provide a guide to the areas/issues covered by the paper, and will be used by the Organizing Committee to allocate papers to appropriate sessions.
3. If there is more than one author, the name of the person who will present the paper at the IEEE SCAP should be clearly indicated in the abstract.
· In principle, the person presenting the paper must be an undergraduate student enrolled at a university that is a member of IEEE at the time the abstract is submitted.
· However, the Organizing Committee will allow a small number of undergraduate students enrolled at universities that are not members of IEEE to present their papers at the IEEE SCAP. In this case, the papers should have some connection to the ASEAN country, and the students must provide a letter of recommendation from a member of the faculty or department in which they are enrolled.
4. If the total number of submissions exceeds 100, the Organizing Committee reserves the right to screen abstracts on the basis of their quality, taking into account the balance in presentations across countries, universities, and disciplines.
5. It should be noted that participation in the 3rd IEEE SCAP is subject to the acceptance of abstracts by the Organizing Committee.
6. Organizing Committee will send e-mail notification for the acceptance directly to the participants.
All participants should register online at http://www.ieeethailand.org after receiving e-mail notification of the acceptance for their abstract submission.
