Envisioning a technical conference targeted towards undergraduate students all over the globe, the MIT IEEE Student Branch in 2015 inaugurated the IEEE MIT Undergraduate Research Technology Conference. This year we are organizing it again with the goal to make the conference a venue where undergraduate students can meet to present, discuss, and develop solutions advancing technology. Participants can attend a rich program with renowned speakers, technical sessions, a student design competition, exhibits, networking, and social activities, as well as a great opportunity for students to interact with leading industry experts. Our 2017 conference had 267 attendees, including several internationals and students from across the US, with a technical paper acceptance rate of 38%.

The conference theme is “Meet Innovative Technology,” and the eight technical tracks include:

1. Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
2. Security and Communications
3. Human-Computer Interaction and Graphics
4. Robotics and Controls
5. BioEECS and Applied Physics
6. Computer Systems
7. Circuits, Materials, and Nanotechnologies
8. Theoretical Computer Science and Mathematics

Authors may submit content in the form of a technical paper, poster, or lightning talk.

All submissions must be written in English. Paper submissions must be no longer than 4 pages, single-spaced, with a minimum of 10 point font, and submissions may include figures, illustrations, and graphs. Abstract submissions for the poster and lightning talks are limited to 500 words.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by faculty, graduate students, and industry professionals. Submissions are online, with a deadline of June 30th, 2018. Notification of acceptance will be sent via email by August 4th, 2018.

Please join the mailing list (MIT-Conference@ieee.org) for more information and updates on submission, the technical program, registration, and accommodation.

A conference proceeding of all the accepted papers that have been presented at the conference may be published and included in the IEEE Xplore journal. Electronic and online media containing all accepted submissions will be distributed to all registered attendees.
