Student Paper Competition Finalists 

2016 International Frequency Control Symposium 
A very strong group of submissions to the Student Paper Competition was received and reviewed by the Technical Program Committee. The list of Finalists is given below. 
The student paper competition will take place in the poster session on Tuesday, May 10, 2016. A winner will be selected from each of the groups listed below, and the awards will be presented at the Conference Banquet. To participate in the competition, the student had to be the lead author and present the paper. If the paper is selected for oral presentation, the student must also provide a poster to participate in the competition. Winners will receive a $500 monetary award and a certificate.
