Call for 3 Minute Thesis

After the successful past editions, the Technical Program Committee of EUSIPCO 2023 is offering for the ninth consecutive year a 3 Minutes Thesis (3MT) contest, where PhD students have three minutes to present a compelling oration on their thesis and its significance. This activity is sponsored by EURASIP. It is an exercise for students to consolidate their ideas so they can present them concisely to an audience specialized in different areas. Together with scientific and technical quality, EURASIP wants to promote transversal skills of PhD researchers such as oral and presentation skills, and it also wants to help PhDs to gain visibility of their work.

To PhD students: If you are devoting or have devoted 3 or more years to your PhD, you could devote 3 minutes to explain it to a more general public, we challenge you! 

Submission instructions 

  1. Create a video that best explains your work in a language appropriate to a signal processing general audience. The video should not be longer than 3 minutes. 
  2. Upload your video to a site accessible by the evaluation committee. The video should be accessible for viewing and downloading. It is ok for the video to be hidden from search engines and accessible only with a private URL. However, it should not require a username/password to view. You can use, for example, DropBox, Google Drive, or your institution’s web server. The video is the one that will be posted on the conference website, so please make sure it is possible to download. 
  3. Submit your entry via email at no later than May 15th, 2023. Make sure you include a Title, 1-page abstract/summary, Name, Affiliation and a link to the video location.
  4. A shortlist of finalists will be selected by a jury composed by the two members of the EURASIP BoD and the EUSIPCO 2022 Student Activity Chairs.

Please address any questions related to the 3MT contest at 

3MT Awards 

The final contest will take place during EUSIPCO. The three minutes duration of the presentation will be strictly controlled. The finalists will receive complimentary registration to attend EUSIPCO (please note that such free registration cannot be used to cover accepted papers). 

Among the finalists, the top-three finalists will be selected based on the submitted presentations. The winner will be awarded with a Grand prize of 1000€. The runners-up will receive an award certificate. 

The video of the winner will be posted online on the EURASIP website. You can find the rules for the competition here:
