HOW SUBMISSIONS WERE EVALUATED
 
This year, we received 36 valuable submissions. Projects submitted were evaluated by an international committee made of 45 experts nominated by the Competition Co-Chairs and by ComSoc Technical Committees, covering all areas of ComSoc scope (http://www.comsoc.org/communications-technology-changing-world).
 
The evaluation process was organized in two rounds. In the first round, the projects submitted were ranked by the committee by evaluating five different aspects, namely: social impact, technical content, originality, practical applicability and results, quality of presentation. In the second round, committee members voted for the best two among best 9 ranked in the first phase. Finally, the Committee Chairs Stefano Bregni and Nelson Fonseca made the final check among very best ones ranked out of second round and confirmed results.
 
Congratulations to all the winners for such great achievements! Thank you all for your participation and support to this event!
