MENA 3MT Call for Submissions




The IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing is organizing a Three Minute Thesis competition for the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. This competition cultivates students’ presentation and communication skills and challenges them to describe their researches within three minutes with one static slide.

There will be 2 versions, one for PhD and the other for Master’s (or equivalent studies: Master pro, research Master, Engineering) candidates affiliated to a MENA institution.

There will be two stages in the competition for each version:

– Submission of a 3-minute video describing the thesis/research topic by uploading it to a video platform (YouTube, Vimeo, etc.) or to a site accessible only by the evaluation committee with a private URL.

– The top 10 applicants will be then selected and invited for a final remote presentation of the three minutes to an international evaluation committee on the Zoom platform. 3 winners will be then announced at the end of the session.

The topic of the thesis/research should be closely linked to one of the fields of interest of the IEEE GRSS which are the theory, concepts, and techniques of science and engineering as they apply to the remote sensing of the earth, oceans, atmosphere, and space, as well as the processing, interpretation, and dissemination of this information.
