  1. Student-Industry Luncheon
  2. Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition

Both events are free to graduate students who have registered for the main conference or workshops. The luncheon provides a venue for students to meet and interact with industry partners and explore future collaboration or possible employment prospects. To participate in the luncheon, please submit the following documents via CMT [https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/ICMEW2016] in the “Student Program Track” as a single PDF file:

  1. Your CV (maximum 2 pages), which should include your contact details
  2. A letter from your Advisor confirming your student status

The CVs of the participants will be made available to the industry partners in order to facilitate interaction and networking during the luncheon.

The 3MT is an interesting yet challenging way to present a graduate research thesis to a general audience in just three minutes using a single PowerPoint slide! 3MT was first established at the University of Queensland in 2008 and has since been held at many universities around the world.
