  2. Students must declare that they have worked on the projects themselves, and that they had only received advice or guidance from their teachers and/or mentors.

  3. A 250-word abstract and the research paper should accompany each research project that is presented should be submitted to the organisers prior to the event.

  4. The papers will be reviewed by referees of current peer-reviewed journals.

  5. Papers that meet the criteria of the peer-review committee will be selected for presentation and publication in the SISC-ISSF 2019 Proceedings.

  6. Each poster should be A0 in size, should be printed by the participants themselves and should clearly indicate the project title, name(s) of the team member(s), the name and/or logo of the school, and the name and/or logo of other institutes involved in the work.

  7. The poster should, though not exclusively, contain the following sections: abstract/introduction, methodology, results & discussion, conclusion/impact, references.

  8. Participants are required to give a short 10-minute presentation of their research using their poster.

  9. Students are assessed for their creativity, content, clarity, engagement and efficacy (rubrics of assessment will be furnished to participants upon confirmation of participation).

  10. Only projects that are presented will be judged by independent academics from universities and/or research institutes.

Research Challenge - Oral Lecture 

  1. Each team is invited to give a maximum of 3 Oral Lectures on their research projects to an audience of participating students, educators and independent academics from academic and research institutes. To further motivate and enhance this Challenge, SISC-ISSF 2019 will augment this challenge with a focus on creative and feasible solutions to better a chosen community. In the oral lecture, participants are to draw relevance of their research work in benefiting a community, and to communicate their solutions via a prototype where possible. 

  2. Interested schools should submit a 250-word abstract and the research paper to the organising committee prior to the event.

  3. The papers will be reviewed by referees of current peer-reviewed journals.

  4. Papers that meet the criteria of the peer-review committee will be selected for presentation and publication in SISC-ISSF Proceedings 2019.

  5. Bonus points will be awarded to students selected to present these oral lectures.
