Call for Student Participation

The Organizing Committee of the IEEE International Conference on Multimedia and Expo (ICME) 2018 is pleased to announce the following student-centered events that will take place on July 24, 2018 during the conference:

  1. Three Minute Thesis (3MT) competition
  2. Student Career Dinner

Both events are free to graduate students who have registered for the main conference or workshops. The events are free to students joining from local universities from the Southern California region. We expect to have over 100 student participants, and most of the students will be senior PhDs or at Master level that are looking for a job very soon.

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. For further information please visit

The Student Career Dinner provides a venue for students to meet and interact with industry partners and explore future collaboration or possible employment prospects. A buffet will be served at the dinner, which will take place in the expo area. We will invite companies to join the event, and introduce their company and available job opportunities to the student participants, as well as facilitate meet and chat with them.

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