The Institute of Integrated Electrical Engineers of the Philippines Academic Affairs Committee Invites you to the EE RESEARCH CONTEST

2012 In conjunction with the IIEE Annual National Convention 2012 November 14, 2012 1:00-5:00PM SMX Convention Center, Pasay City The EE Research Contest has been developed to promote creative research and highlight advancement of academic thinking on electrical engineering and technology. For seven years, the Contest has been the forum of knowledge-, technology-, idea- and concept-sharing among universities and colleges offering electrical engineering program all over the country. Contest Guidelines 1. Research Category - Research should be creative and innovative. Projects/models including machines, gadgets, products, and processes developed by students and faculty members. These projects/models should possess features and characteristics that may have significant contribution to the promotion of science & technology that creates positive impact to the society in general. Research entries must have an EE Application and ARE NOT LIMITED to the following: a. Renewable Energy b. Power Electronics c. Energy Conversion d. Energy Utilization and Environment e. Software Application on EE f. Instrumentation and Control g. Mechatronics/Machine Automation h. Microelectronics i. Microcontroller-based/Microprocessor-based projects j. Other EE-related applications 2. Eligibility of Entries - Each entry must be in accordance to the following: a. Each entry shall consist of the following: i. Duly accomplished EE Research Contest Form (Annex A); ii. Printed copy of the full paper of the research, in A4 white bond paper, bound in sliding folder with transparent front cover; iii. Soft copy of the full paper of the research, stored in the compact disk; and iv. Notarized Declaration of Originality of the Research, duly signed by a competent school authority. Please see Annex B. b. Each entry shall follow the EE Research Contest Content and Format Guide. Please see the attached Annex C. c. All entries must be submitted on or before September 30, 2012 and must be forwarded to the address provided below. d. For a project that has already been submitted in the past, proponents must be able to demonstrate how the research has been advanced. This information is required during registration. e. IIEE Academic Affairs Committee presumes that each research entry is an original work of the proponents. IIEE, IIEE Academic Affairs Committee and the Board of Judges are not liable for any violation related to intellectual property rights. f. Projects that violate laws or school regulations--or place any student, judge, or observer in danger--are not eligible.

EE Research Design Competition Guidelines c. Criteria for Judging All entries will be judge based on the following: Creative Thought 30% Scientific and Engineering Thought 30% Skills 15% Clarity 15% Social Impact 10% i. Creative ThoughtDoes the project show creative ability and originality in the approach to solving the problem, analysis and interpretation of data, use of equipment and construction or design of new equipment? Does it support an investigation and help answer a question in an original way? Is the creative contribution promotes an efficient and reliable method for solving a problem? Is the project exhibit gadgeteering or ingenuity? Does the project involve indigenous materials? ii. Scientific and Engineering ThoughtDoes the project have a clear objective? Is it useful and relevant to the potential user? Could the solution successful in design or construction of an end product, without harming any other, including the environment? Is the project a significant solution over previous alternative? Has the solution been tested to its optimum performance under general conditions? iii. Skills Does the team employed electrical engineering theory and practice in carrying out the project? Does the project undergone competitive and valid computational, observational and design skills to support the data presented? Where was the project performed? Did the team received assistance from experts other than their faculty advisers, in the undertaking? iv. Clarity Is the project understandable? Is the material presented logically and coherently?
