OCEANS'06 Singapore

OCEANS '06 IEEE Singapore Student Poster Program

The eighteenth Student Poster Program was held at OCEANS '06 ASIA PACIFIC in Singapore .  Once gain we had a very fine display of student posters. Sixteen poster abstracts were received and fourteen were accepted.  Two of the students had scheduling conflicts and were unable to attend and a third student cancelled out just prior to the Conference.  Eleven posters were displayed and represented students from China, Japan, New Zealand, Turkey, France, Taiwan, Greece and Singapore.  The posters were on display in the Lobby of the Conference Center and were heavily visited by  the attendees. The Student Poster Session was organized by Mandar Chitre from the University of Singapore. Support from the Office of Naval Research of the United States Navy underwrote the cost of the program. Prizes for the top six posters were awarded at the Gala Banquet on Thursday evening.  The posters were:
