The major aim of the PhD Student Initiative Program is to invite early and mid-stage PhD students from universities across India to participate in this conference. The basic idea behind the scheme is to encourage early level doctoral candidates in the RF and Microwave domain to provide them exposure during the conference, so that they may carry out quality work during their PhD program. The PhD student initiative would thus facilitate these students in transitioning to niche topics. Through this scheme, the plan is to invite several students from various institutions all over the country, who would be offered complimentary registration to attend the full event.

The students selected for this program would be offered full registration, which includes following:

  • Welcome Dinner
  • Lunch
  • Registration Kit
  • Awards Night Dinner
  • Tea/Coffee Breaks

The number of candidates called for PhD student initiative would be decided by the MAPCON Organizing Committee.
