DGBMT Students Competition


The DGBMT asks students for presenting their results from research projects or diploma theses. The best contributions are awarded certificates and prizes (posters and oral presentations in a separate process).

1. Prize: 1000 EUR

2. Prize: 300 EUR

3. Prize: 200 EUR


Places 1 - 10 each receive a copy from the textbook series Biomedical Engineering.


The submissions are subject to the same peer review process and will undergo an additional evaluation based on quality, degree of innovation and presentation of the scientific-technical work.


The best 10 papers are assessed by the jurors during the running sessions of the BMT conference and the winners determined. The other finalists receive a participation certificate.


Conditions of participation:

Only first authors are admitted who while writing their scientific study presented in the paper

  • are or were at the time enrolled as a student at a university,
  • are younger than 30 years on the last day of the conference and
  • a member of the DGBMT (or of one of the two affiliate societies in Austria or Switzerland; in the first year DGBMT membership is free for students.)

When submitted dissertations of participants shall not yet have been finished. This means that scientific assistants, doctoral students and PhD students are allowed to take part if they fulfil these requirements. Please note that final papers must have been finished when submitted.

The paper shall present only current research work which may have been terminated not more than one year before the deadline for submission. In the absence of supporting documents the participant will be eliminated.


Preparation of the paper:

Papers for the DGBMT student competition may be submitted as a presentation or a poster the assignment of which is in the hands of the conference scientific advisory board. In the case of team work the submitted paper shall refer only to the personal contribution of the author.
