Additional updated info on the annual call are available here.

The competition Communication Technology Changing the World, by the IEEE Communications Society – Member Relations, recognizes students or teams of students who demonstrate the capacity to improve the lives of people, through the application of communication technology and the development of projects that meet the human needs of people.

Eligibility & Role of Students, Mentors/Advisors
To qualify for the competition, a participant must be a Student Member or Graduate Student Member of IEEE Communications Society*, or form a team with either Student Members or non-student-members that is led by a Student Member. Team members do not need to be from the same country or region.

In this competition, students play the predominant roles in developing the project and in the problem solving, while higher grade senior roles, if included on a team, are considered “mentors” or “advisors.” Non-student members among authors must be listed as “Advisor”.

While students may receive technical and financial assistance from others, senior individuals acting in any mentorship role must limit the level of support to general guidance and must not contribute in any other form that might be considered original authorship, or in any way that may enable claims of rights or ownership to the submitted entries.

Non-student members among team members must be listed as “Advisor.” The submission entry must specify clearly the contribution of mentors or others supporting the students in the team.

The age requirement for the Student Member or a Graduate Student Member of the IEEE Communications Society for this competition is 18+ years at the time of submitting the entry.
