Since the COVID-19 virus was first recorded late last year, the pandemic has spread around the world. Affected countries are desperately trying to build up supplies for healthcare workers and public as well as utilize technologies to fight the virus. This special student design competition organized by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) and sponsored by Synopsys aims to create technology solutions aligned with Circuits and Systems to help break the chain of infection of the COVID-19 virus. The technologies can be geared for diagnostics, treatment, surveillance, and prevention, targeted for specific communities (such as nursing homes, refugee camps, etc.) or the public at large.
The competition will take place as a virtual event. The teams submit their demonstration videos (at most 10 minutes) together with reports (using the provided template) stating the main achievement, the relevance to the Circuits and Systems technology no more than 5 pages excluding appendices. The judging panel consisting of the CASS experts from all over the world selects the winners.
The top 3 winning teams are invited to present and demonstrate their work in a virtual event during ISCAS2020
, from 18:00 to 18:30 CEST (12:00 to 12:30 EDT) on Saturday 10 October. The CASS will provide ISCAS registration fees for a maximum of three team members per winning team, who must be IEEE CASS Student Members.
