The Annual Conference of the Spanish Society of Biomedical Engineering includes the organization of a student paper competition. Papers submitted to the competition are peer-reviewed by the members of the Scientific Committee according to their quality, and the six best scored papers are selected as finalists for their oral presentation in the Student Competition Session.

The finalists must attend the conference and present their paper in the Student Competition Session. These presentations are evaluated by the Student Competition Committee, composed by a panel of experts covering the diverse conference themes and tracks.

According to the quality of the paper and its presentation, the Student Competition Committee selects the best three, which are awarded with an economic grant. Besides, both the awardees and the finalists receive a diploma.
