20. The presentation should not attempt to cover the entire paper, but rather to give a general idea and enlarge on one or two specific points.


The following guidelines are suggested to assist grading by providing a uniform layout. In general the paper should be organized as follows:
Student Paper Cover Sheet. Since the judges must handle the papers without knowledge of the identity of the author and his educational establishment, it is required that the paper itself shown no such identification other than the title. The title, author(s)' name(s) and IEEE membership number(s), corresponding author's address, school, and Branch Counselor's name must be shown on a removable cover sheet.
Title page. The title should consist of the minimum number of key words necessary to portray accurately the content of the paper. Readers interest is stimulated by a well-chosen title. The author's name should not appear on the title page, nor should any other name of persons or schools.
Abstract. The abstract should give in brief the essential facts of its content, for example, a brief statement of the problem or objective and a concise summary of results or conclusions, touching upon methods or other details only if they are unique or if they are of some particular significance. The abstract should be no longer than 100 words.
Introduction. The introduction should lead to the development of the subject so that the reader may obtain a clear understanding of the significance of the paper. This often can be done by giving briefly the state of the art as background. Then bring out the added advantages of the method of approach and emphasize the importance of the results or conclusions.
Body. The main argument of the development of the subject is carried out in the body of the paper, complete with supporting data. The argument should proceed in a logical sequence. The writing should be in the third person. Supporting data and results can often be presented most effectively as curves, charts or tables. Well-known abbreviations may be used in the text but should be defined where used the first time, followed by the abbreviation in parentheses. Generally the use of abbreviations should be confined to not duplicate text matter.
Conclusion. The conclusions are often considered the most important part of a paper. They should be stated concisely in a separate section at the end of the paper. If there are three or more conclusions, greater emphasis can be obtained by numbering each conclusion and setting it off in a separate paragraph.
Tables. Tables should be numbered. Small tabulations or listings may be made in the text where necessary for continuity. Each table should be titled by giving a brief description as a heading following the table number at the top.
Diagrams. Three types of diagrams may be used: photographs, oscillograms, line drawings. Keep reading matter on illustrations to a minimum; include it in the captions. Portions of illustrations may be identified by letters and explained in the captions. Whenever is feasible, combine several curves on the same co-ordinates. Their identifying letters or numbers should be in clear spaces between cross-section lines. If it is necessary to place data over cross-section lines, erase these lines.
Appendices. Detailed mathematical proofs, development of equations, and examples which are subordinate to the main argument in the body of a paper, but not essential to following the argument, should be treated in appendices. References are made in the text to details in the appendices. Main equations as they are developed should be numbered consecutively, with the number in parentheses opposite the equation in the right hand margin.
References. Any information or development taken from books, periodicals, i.e. from any external source, should be clearly referenced in the text. References should be numbered consecutively and should follow the form shown below:

• For a periodical: R. N. Hall, "Power rectifiers and transistors", Proc. IRE, vol. 40, pp. 1512-1519, November 1952.
• For a book: O.V. Stukach, Information Technologies, Tomsk, TPU, pp. 220, 2008.

Профессиональное жюри будет проводить анонимную экспертизу письменных работ и решает, какие статьи будут приняты для представления в устном финале.JURY GUIDELINES ON GRADING THE PAPER

g. Does the author exhibit ingenuity and resourcefulness in methods of presentation, choice of illustrations, use of analogies and the like?
h. Is the paper technically accurate?
i. Is an unmistakable meaning conveyed with acceptable brevity?
