Are you a student who’s work happens to crossover into the exoskeleton domain? ASTM International is pitching a student paper competition with the theme, “Designing Safe Exoskeletons and Exosuits”.
Awards will include $1000 US for first prize and $500 US for second prize. ASTM will also cover travel costs to the ASTM F48 Exoskeleton and Exosuit Standards Committee meeting so that the winners can present their papers.
The deadline to submit is July 17, 2020.
This student paper competition is co-sponsored by Committee F48 on Exoskeletons and Exosuits and the ASTM Exo Technology Center of Excellence. This award is given to encourage students to develop, present, and publish high quality research papers in the area of exo technologies, which include exoskeletons, exosuits, and related wearable technologies. The 2020 theme is, Designing Safe Exoskeletons and Exosuits. Students are encouraged to identify relevant standards and discuss strategies to test and demonstrate the safety of these devices.
The paper competition is open to students enrolled full- or part-time in associate, undergraduate, or graduate programs in higher education institutions.
