Travel to the 2021 IEEE AP-S USNC-URSI and win up to US $1,500!

Official Contest Page

Join the 12th IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society (AP-S) Antenna Design Contest! Design and build a system to demonstrate and visualize array beamforming for DoA detection. The top 6 teams will receive travel support to attend the IEEE Antennas and Propagation Symposium in Singapore, 4-10 December, 2021 to demonstrate their working systems. From these 6 teams, 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners will be announced at the 2021 IEEE AP-S Awards Presentation at the conference and will receive cash awards of US$1,500, $750 and $250, respectively. Important deadlines are 31 December 2020 and 15 May 2021.


The team should consist of 2 to 5 students, with at least 50% being undergraduate students. For a 5-year Bachelor-cum-Master degree program, students in years 1 to 3 are considered undergraduates. Each team should be advised by a professional mentor who is a member of the IEEE AP-S, but the work needs to be done primarily by the students. No student or mentor should be involved in more than one team.
