NIPS 2017 Tutorial on Differential Privacy and MachineLearning

We (really Mohsen and Zahra) had a paper nominated for a student paper award at CAMSAP last year, but since both student authors are from Iran, their single-entry student visas prevented them from going to the conference.

The award terms require that the student author present the work (in a poster session) and the conference organizers were kind enough to allow Mohsen to present his poster via Skype.

I agree that scholarly communication through oral presentation is a valuable skill, but if the award is going to be determined by who gives the best show at the conference, they should retitle these to “best student paper and presentation award”

they miss out on opportunities to get their name/face known, chances to meet and network with people, and the experience of being exposed to a ton of ideas in a short amount of time.

The Harry Boer Best Student Paper Award

The Harry Boer Best Student Paper Award, established in 2009, is granted to the best paper presented at the conference authored by a PhD student.

The winner of the best student paper will receive GBP250 and a framed certificate;

In addition, the winner will be awarded one complimentary conference registration voucher for the following year for the main author, sponsored by EurOMA.

Policy approved by the Satellite Division Executive Committee, October 2017 Student Paper Awards are intended to give promising students an opportunity to attend the world’s leading international ION GNSS+ conference and present their research.  The students also get an opportunity to meet industry leaders and learn about the latest developments in GNSS technology.

The Student Awards Chair will sort the submitted papers by topic and provide papers to selected member(s) of the Student Awards Committee for evaluation.  Papers will be selected based on the review of the designated member(s) of the Student Awards Committee.  The Student Awards Chair will work with the Program Chair of the Meeting to assign the winning papers into the appropriate technical sessions as primary papers.

Winning students will also receive a flat rate of travel subsidy based on the country in which the sponsoring school is located (not the country in which the student may reside) as follows: The student is responsible for making all travel arrangements.

Failure to do so would affect the acceptance of future paper(s) submitted for consideration under the Student Award Program.  In extreme cases, special arrangements will be made for students who would be unable to participate should their school be unable or unwilling to administer travel arrangements directly.
